Septic Inspections From Referrals

Septic Preservation Services have been providing septic inspections to customers in this region for over 25 years. This means that we have developed strong relationships with realtors in this area too because a vast majority of septic inspections that we carry out are for property owners who are selling their homes. We are proud of the relationships that we have built and a lot of our business comes from referrals either from happy customers or realtors who have referred our services to their clients because they have worked with us in the past and are happy to do so again. Today we have septic inspections scheduled in North Attleboro, Wrentham, Foxboro, Mansfield, Sharon and Norton MA. If you require a septic inspection or if you have any questions about septic inspections please do contact our Norton office on
877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com

New England Weather Doesn’t Stop Septic Appointments Happening

Septic Preservation Services wishes everyone a very happy 2018! This year promises to be even more successful the last and we are already very busy with septic appointments for our customers. Even in New England weather we are able to carryout many appointments as planned. Today we have Title 5 Septic Inspections scheduled in Attleboro, Norton, Mansfield, Foxboro and Sharon MA. However if the weather is especially bad to make it impossible for our inspector to carry out your Title 5 Inspection then Title 5 does make allowances:

“If weather conditions prevent an inspection before a sale, Title 5 allows the inspection to be done up to 6 months afterwards, provided that the seller notifies the buyer in writing of the need to complete the inspection”

For more information see:

Of course we will always endeavor to do septic inspections as planned but we have enough septic inspectors so that if for any reason your inspection is delayed we can always re schedule your inspection for a day and time that works in your time frame. If you do wish to schedule an inspection or if you have any questions about septic inspections or septic systems please do call our knowledgeable Norton Office team on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com

A Title 5 Inspection Consists Of The Collection And Recording Of Information

Septic Preservation Services have licensed septic inspectors who are available to carry out Title 5 Septic Inspections for property owners who require an inspection. Often we are contacted by property owners who have a septic system and are planning to sell their home and need to have a Title 5 Inspection completed before they can transfer Title. Once a septic inspection has been done it is valid for 2 years so there is no reason not to have it done as soon as you decide to sell your property. This will prevent any hold ups later in your sale and once it is done it is a positive point for your property. Often property owners have never before had an inspection done so this information from the Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs helps explain what to expect:

“An inspection shall consist of the collection and recording of the following information:

(a)   a general description of the system components and layout;
(b)   quantification of the source/type of sanitary sewage.  This should include type of use (domestic or commercial/industrial) as well as the design flow and whether or not the facility being served is occupied at the time of the inspection;
(c)   an analysis of the factors set forth in 310 CMR 15.303 (failure criteria) and, if the system has a design flow of 10,000 gpd or greater, 15.304 (threats to public health and environment);
(d)   water use records for the previous two years for facilities served by public water supply, if available from the supplier;
(e)   a description of the septic tank including:
1.   approximate age, size, and condition of the tank;
2.   distance between bottom of grease/scum layer and the bottom of the outlet baffle;
3.   distance between the top of the scum layer and the top of the outlet tee;
4.   thickness of the grease/scum layer;
5.   depth of the sludge layer and distance from sludge to outlet tee;
6.   physical condition of inlet and outlet tees;
7.   any evidence of leakage into or out of tank; and
8.   any evidence of backup of effluent.
9.   a characterization of the distribution box, and of dosing tanks with pumps, if any, including: a.   any evidence of solids carryover; b.   leakage into or out of the distribution box; c.   whether the flow is equally divided; and d.   any evidence of backup.
10.   a description of the condition of the soil absorption system including: a.   any signs of hydraulic failure; b.   condition of surface vegetation; c.   level of ponding within disposal area; d.   encroachments into disposal area; and e.   other sources of hydraulic loading.

septic tank pumping

Schedule Your Septic Tank Pumping with SPS

septic tank pumping Septic Preservation Services can help you ensure that your septic system continues to operate correctly by pumping your septic tank. Septic pumping is essential every 3 – 5 years to ensure that your tank does not overflow.  As you can imagine it is not advisable to leave pumping too late late because the results can be unpleasant and expensive to fix.

The regularity that your tank needs to be pumped will vary slightly from various factors including water usage and the size of your tank.  For example, a family with 5 members, including teenagers, will typically use more water and therefore need more their tank pumped sooner, than a home of a retired couple.  However, this too can vary dramatically if that couple have extended family visiting for a prolonged period.

Essentially if you are unsure, please do call our office where we will be happy to answer any questions.  Today, we are pumping septic systems for customers in Holliston, Millis, Bellingham, Franklin, Wrentham, and Foxboro, MA.  If you need to schedule a septic pump out appointment or if you have any questions, please do contact our Norton, MA office at 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
