Septic Preservation Services has qualified engineers working for us who can assist with your septic engineering needs. Today we have septic engineering appointments which include soil evaluations, land use planning, and construction layouts for large commercial developments and private homes in North Attleboro, Wrentham,Foxboro, Sharon, Bellingham and Franklin MA. The soil evaluation or PERC test (percolation) that we have scheduled in North Attleboro is a soil test that is performed before installing a new septic system. The perc test is extremely important because it measures the level of liquid absorption of the soil where the proposed septic system will be located. This is necessary because after partially treated wastewater leaves the septic tank, it flows into a distribution box, which separates this flow evenly into a network of drainfield trenches. Drainage holes at the bottom of each line allow the wastewater to drain into gravel trenches for temporary storage. This effluent then slowly seeps into the subsurface soil where it is further treated and purified (secondary treatment). The PERC test provides the information to ensure that this process happens correctly for a newly installed septic system.

Septic Preservation Services have been contacted by a a property owner in Foxboro MA who needs a septic repair which entails having their septic tank baffles replaced. Broken septic tank baffles result from sulfuric acid eating away at concrete baffles or rust eating away at steel baffles. A septic tank has an inlet and outlet baffle. Usually these baffles are made from concrete and are part of the tank construction. The inlet baffle slows the flow of liquid entering the tank and decreases the turbulence allowing the solids to settle in the bottom of the tank. The outlet baffle helps to retain the solids and prevent them from leaving the tank and travelling to your absorption area. A tank without an outlet baffle can compromise the longevity of your septic system and cause premature failure. We are experienced working with all parts and types of septic system so can quickly and with minimum disruption replace our client’s damaged baffles. We also have other septic repair appointments scheduled today in Carver, Bridgewater, Taunton, Raynham and Norton MA. If you require a septic repair or have questions about your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
Septic Preservation Services have been contacted by a property owner in Attleboro MA who has a leach field problem which has been caused by it becoming clogged with the excessive amount of organic matter that has been passed to it from their septic tank. We will repair their leach field without needing to replace it with the installation of a White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator.
In nature, oxygen-using (aerobic) bacteria in the soil consume non-living organic material. This is the process nature uses to “recycle” wastes. We install the White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator in the septic tank to create an oxygen rich environment and cultivate an extensive colony of these same soil bacteria.
The result is nearly complete consumption of the organic materials entering the septic tank. At the same time, the bacteria are carried into the leach field where they consume the organic material that has accumulated in the underlying soil. The leach field regains and/or maintains its capacity to deliver effluent to the soil for purification.
The White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator includes:
- An installation costs thousands of dollars less than that of a replacement leach field
- Minimal disruption to existing landscape
- Protection of the environment
- Significantly longer tank pumping interval
- Conservation of natural resources
- 100% component and limited lifetime performance warranty
We have other septic repairs also scheduled today in Norton, Mansfield, Stoughton, Sharon, Canton and Foxboro MA.
If you want to have a White Knight Septic Installation, need a septic repair or if you have any questions please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic Preservation Services know that selling property can be a stressful process and if you have a septic system that is just one more thing that has to be organised. That is because in Massachusetts you are required to have a valid Title 5 Septic Inspection before you can transfer Title on a property. Septic inspections are generally valid for 2 years so unless you bought your property recently you will probably need to organize an inspection. For more infomation see the Mass Gov Website.
We therefore try to make the inspection process as painless as possible by arranging the inspection as suits your schedule, where at all possible. We will be punctual and professional while providing you with a thorough septic inspection. Today we have Title 5 Septic Inspections scheduled in Sharon, Foxboro, Stoughton, Canton and Bridgewater MA. If you require a Title 5 Septic Inspection or if you have any questions about septic inspections or septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
Septic Preservation Services has Title 5 Septic Inspections scheduled today in Hingham, Holliston, Millis, Canton, Sharon, Foxboro, and Stoughton MA. We have found that the majority of our Title 5 Inspections are carried out for property owners who are selling that property. In many instances they have never sold a property with a septic system before and therefore have no idea what to expect to happen when their inspection is carried out. When you have a Title 5 Septic Inspection this is what is included:
- General layout of the system components (location of the building sewer, septic tank or cesspool, distribution box and leaching field);
- Type of use (e.g., house, school, retail space), Title 5 design flow, and whether the facility is presently occupied;
- Analysis of the criteria specified in Title 5 that indicate system failure, and, for large systems, those which indicate threats to public health and the environment;
- Water use records from the previous two years, if available;
- A description of the septic tank, including its condition, approximate age, thickness of grease/scum layer, and other relevant information;
- A characterization of the distribution box and dosing tanks with pumps, if any, such as condition and evidence of solids carryover or backup; and
- The condition of the soil absorption system including, any signs of hydraulic failure.
The system needs to be inspected under normal conditions so the septic system should not be pumped prior to an inspection which is a common mistake that property owners make thinking the system needs to be empty to be inspected. If you need to arrange a Title 5 Inspection or if you have any questions about septic systems or septic inspections please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic Preservation Services work with many customers that don’t have conventional septic systems on their property but instead have a cesspool. As stated on the Mass Gov website:
“A cesspool is a pit which acts as both a settling chamber for solids and a leaching system for liquids. The use of cesspools may overload the capacity of the soil to remove bacteria, viruses, and phosphorus, and to nitrify ammonia and organic nitrogen compounds. A conventional septic system has a tank where solids can settle and begin to degrade, a distribution box, and a soil absorption system (SAS) that further treats the effluent by removing some of the bacteria, viruses, phosphorus, and nitrogen.”
Although cesspools are now not installed because there are more efficient and environmentally conscious alternatives Massachusetts does not always require cesspools to be replaced. They state that:
“Only those cesspools that exhibit signs of hydraulic failure, are located extremely close to private or public water supplies, or otherwise fail to protect or pose a threat to public health, safety or the environment will need to be upgraded (310 CMR 15.303). Also, cesspools must be upgraded prior to an increase in design flow (e.g., the addition of a bedroom to a home or seats to a restaurant).”
For more information see the Mass Gov Website

Septic Preservation Services are providing a Title 5 Septic Inspection today to a customer in Sharon MA. This homeowner is a first time seller and needs to arrange for a septic inspection to be done on their septic system before Title transfer can take place. They have sensibly chosen to have their inspection done as soon as they decided that they wanted to sell their home. This means that the inspection will be completed without causing any delay to their future sale. Also if it does happen to highlight any problems they can have them fixed and not have to worry about this causing delays and potential loss of sales. Once they have had their inspection carried out and it passes that is just one more positive for the home that their realtor can use to sell it for a good price. They do not need to be concerned about the inspection expiring because it will be valid for 2 years as stated on the Mas Gov Website. We also have other Title 5 Septic Inspection appointments scheduled today in Franklin, Foxboro, Bellingham, Blackstone and Stoughton MA.
