Septic Preservation Services would prefer to provide education to its customers, where possible, to prevent them from having to call us out for unnecessary septic repairs which could have been avoided if the property owner knew more about how to use their septic system. One of the main things that homeowners need to consider is what not to introduce to their septic system. Somethings seem clear – do not flush clothing, cat litter, toys, tools, diapers. These are all items that can clog your system which can possibly lead to a breakdown and will certainly result in your needing to have your system pumped more regularly than usual. However what may not seem as obvious are other items that should not be flushed either such as ‘flushable’ wipes, feminine hygiene products, fats, oils and grease. These are also items that can clog your system and fill it up too quickly. Also household cleaners, bleach, paint and some medications like acne lotions should not be introduced to your septic system because they can harm the biological activity that is essential for your septic system to operate correctly. We have septic repairs scheduled today, some of which could have been avoided following the above advice, in Fairhaven, Fall River, Westport, New Bedford, Seekonk and Swansea MA.

Septic Preservation Services have spent many years in this region providing septic services to property owners. Often the first contact we will have with a client is when they request a septic inspection because they are selling a property or sometimes buying a property with a septic system. This is because in Massachusetts a system inspection is required:
“Within 2 years before a sale. If weather conditions prevent inspection at the time of a sale, the inspection must take place within 6 months afterward.” For more information see https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system

Septic Preservation Services know that if you have never owned a property with a septic system the unknown can be a bit daunting. However a septic system or ‘on-site sewage system’ is a pretty simple and not an uncommon way for a property to process its own waste. A typical septic system consists of a septic tank and a drainfield. All water runs out of your house from one main drainage pipe into a septic tank which is a buried, water-tight container usually made of concrete, fiberglass, or polyethylene. Its job is to hold the wastewater long enough to allow solids to settle down to the bottom which forms a sludge, while the oil and grease floats to the top as scum. Compartments in the tank and a T-shaped outlet prevent the sludge and scum from leaving the tank and traveling into the drainfield area. The liquid wastewater, or effluent, then exits the tank into the drainfield. Finally the wastewater percolates into the soil, naturally removing harmful bacteria, viruses, and nutrients. Many homes in New England have their own septic system and they are not all way out in the countryside. As more and more property has been built it has not all been connected upto town sewer so many homes that are in towns and cities have their own septic systems. If you are unsure about septic system maintenance or just don’t want to have to worry about it a good solution may be a septic service plan. Septic services are an ideal way for property owners to be totally confident that their septic system maintenance is being done without have to concern themselves about it. We maintain, check and monitor the septic system and notify our customer if we find anything that may be a problem in the future which can prevent small septic problems becoming large and expensive septic failures. Today we have septic services scheduled in Freetown, Seekonk, Swansea, Marion, Westport, New Bedford and Fall River MA.

Septic Preservation Services were contacted by a customer in Acushnet who had noticed sewage smells and damp patches in their backyard so were concerned that they may have a septic problem. Further discussion revealed that they had noticed slow drains and much greener grass in their backyard for a while but had not realized that these are also signs of a septic problem. The reason for their leach field failure is biological clogging. This is the development of a biomat beneath the leachfield that eventually prevents the liquid or effluent from entering the underlying soil. This biomat is a combination of fine organic solids that have been carried out of the septic tank and the remnants of anaerobic bacteria. These bacteria originate in the human intestinal tract and enter the septic system with the waste products. 95% of all leach field failures are biological. We will repair their leach field by installing the White Knight system. The White Knight system creates an aerobic environment within the septic system and provides a large surface area for the growth of a specialized bacterial colony. As the bacteria multiply, they consume the organic material coming into the septic tank. At the same time, a great many of these bacteria are carried into the leach field and begin to consume the organic material that is clogging the soil. As a result, the underlying soil begins to regain its porosity, which in turn allows the effluent to pass through. After installation our client will have to discontinue use of a garbage disposal system, refrain from introducing any harsh chemicals into the septic system, use liquid detergents for washing dishes and clothes, refrain from flushing any and all non-organic products down the drains, refrain from the heavy use of bleach products and refrain from flushing paper towels or wipes down the drains. If they do their their leach field will remain operating correctly. We also have other septic repairs scheduled today in Mattapoisett, New Bedford, Fairhaven and Fall River MA.

Septic Preservation Services are assisting a customer in Marion MA today with septic system improvements. We are installing a riser to their septic system.

Another septic improvement that we can provide to our customers is to install an effluent filter in the outlet tee of their septic tank which will extend the life of their system. Due to the high cost associated with replacing a septic system, this seemingly small upgrade to your system will pay off in a big way.

Septic Preservation Services knows that keeping your septic system clean and healthy is the best way to avoid costly repairs to your septic system, be it a septic tank, cesspool or some other style system. Septic Preservation Services helps to ensure your system remains as healthy as possible through periodic pumping and system checks. When we pump your septic tank our professionally trained staff is there to identify potential issues before they become big problems! To prevent problems, we ensure the solids in your system are cleared out and remain at a level consistent with a healthy system. We also check and clear filters if one is present to be sure it doesn’t let any solids into the soil absorption system.
The health of the system can be improved through addition of bacteria products to your system by our professional staff. These bacteria help break down the organic solids in your tank which reduces buildup over time, reduces odors and keeps your pipes clean. With proper maintenance these additives can ensure the success and health of your system.

Septic Preservation Services are available to do the septic maintenance that everyone would rather took care of itself but unfortunately needs to be done and arranged.
Septic Pumping is an important part of your septic system maintenance. If you do not have this done your system will get clogged and full and when that happens it will cease to work efficiently and eventually fail. As you can probably imagine a failed septic system is not a pretty sight (or smell) and is often a very expensive thing to fix.
This can be avoided if you not only have your septic system pumped regularly but also use a through and reputable company to do so. The frequency that your septic system should be pumped varies on a variety of factors including the size of your system and the amount it is used, however, it is recommended that it is pumped every 3-5 years. A properly maintained septic system should only be pumped every 2-5 years, as needed, to avoid removing the “good” bacteria and keep the system running smoothly. Today we have septic pumping scheduled in Attleboro, Norton, Seekonk, Fall River, Freetown, Lakeville, and Acushnet, MA. If it has been over three years since your septic tank had a pump out, please contact us for an evaluation and to arrange septic pumping if necessary.
