Septic Repair in Acushnet MA

Septic Preservation Services have a septic repair scheduled today for a customer in Acushnet MA. We are replacing their distribution Box (D-Box). A D-Box is exactly as it sounds it’s a box that moves, or distributes treated wastewater from your septic tank into your leach field or drain field. It must be level and installed correctly or your watewater will not distribute evenly across your leach field and this can lead to over saturation and clogging which is not desirable. The d-box we are replacing was damaged when heavy equipment was mistakenly parked on top of it which broke and moved it. We have found that many property owners with septic systems while they know they have a septic tank sometimes forget that the leachfield and d-box are also essential parts of their septic system and must also be maintained. Here are a few simple tips to help you look after all parts of your septic system:

  • Minimize the use of the garbage disposal
  • Do not put grease down your drains
  • Spread loads of laundry out over time rather than doing multiple loads in a short period of time, and use liquid detergents rather than powdered detergents
  • Avoid excessively long showers
  • Avoid leaving tap water running when shaving, brushing teeth or doing other personal or household tasks
  • Do not flush medications, harmful chemicals, excessive amounts of bleach, harsh drain cleaners or degreasers
  • Have the septic tank pumped at least every three years
  • Do not add any septic systems cleaners, enzymes or additives
  • Remove water conditioning backwash discharges from the septic system
  • Do not plant trees and shrubs over leach fields
  • Do not flush personal products, paper towels, wipes or diapers
  • Do not clean or rinse paint brushes in the sinks
  • Equip all hot tubs, spas, whirlpool baths, etcetera with drain limiting valves that will only allow five gallons per minute to drain from fixture
  • Do not drive vehicles over leach fields

We also have septic repairs scheduled in Norton, Stoughton, Canton and Taunton MA and some of these repairs could have been avoided by following the above advice.

Septic Cleaning in Addition To Septic Pumping Helps Your Septic System Work Correctly

Septic Preservation Services understand that part of any good septic system preventative maintenance program is to ensure that it is properly cleaned and pumped on a regular basis However it is also important to know the facts about septic cleaning and pumping to avoid making costly mistakes. Inside your septic tank solid waste matter sinks to the bottom and grease and oils float to the top. Treated liquid waste flows through pipes into a drain field or leach field. If too much solid waste accumulates it clogs the drain pipes, prevents liquids from escaping, and leads to sewage backups into your home and a health hazard because waste is not treated before exiting your septic system. A properly maintained septic system should only have a septic pump out every 2-5 years, as needed, to avoid removing the “good” bacteria and keep the system running smoothly. Septic pumping will ensure that your septic system does not ‘fill up’ with waste. Getting your tanks cleaned on a regular basis will help to improve the efficiency of your septic system and keep it running smoothly. Septic Preservation Services takes pride in the work that we do, utilizing specialized miniature equipment to locate specific areas of your system, such as a sewer cam that is used to investigate the inside of your sewer lines, and jetting equipment to clean the pipes within the leach field. It is important to understand that septic pumping does not always mean that your system will also be cleaned and leaving solid buildup in the septic tank or not having your leach field pipes jetted can mean that even if your system is pumped blockages can still occur which can result in septic system failures and potentially unpleasant, expensive and harmful repercussions. Today we have septic cleaning appointments in Berlin, Clinton, Bolton, Marlborough, Sterling and Grafton MA. If you are interested in septic cleaning or septic pumping or have any questions about the process please do contact our office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Leach Field Repair with the Installation of a White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator

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.

Septic Preservation Services Provide Septic Repairs And Advise

Septic Preservation Services are always happy to use our extensive knowledge in the septic industry gained over 25 years working with septic systems in the region to educate property owners with septic systems. If we can help someone avoid a septic breakdown by following some easy to follow suggestions we count that as a success. “Preservation” is in our name for a reason and we take the preservation of our environment seriously. A septic problem for one home can result in large problems that can affect the local environment including:

· Hazardous sewage surfacing in yard
· Health hazards to children and pets
· Noxious orders over large areas
· Polluted streams and ponds
· Sewage back-up in buildings
· Contaminated wells
· Breeding areas for mosquitoes

One problem is often created by property owners being unaware of the location of their leach field or drain field or not understanding the importance of its part in their septic system. They then park or drive vehicles over it causing damage. Your drain field and its associated piping are not built to sustain weight and can become easily damaged by vehicles parking on them. Even if the vehicle does not collapse the system, it can compact the soil causing drain field problems. Today we are providing a leach field septic repair for a property owner in Rochester who unknowingly damaged their system by allowing parking on their leach field during a party. We have other septic repairs today in Carver, Marion, Bourne, Middleboro and Plymouth MA. If you are concerned that your septic system is not operating as it should or if you have any questions about your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
