The White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator Is An Alternative To Leach Field Replacement

Septic Preservation Services has been contacted by a customer in North Attleboro MA because they are concerned that their septic system is failing. Your system is failing if one or more of the following conditions exists:

  • All of the drains from the house are slow
  • There is a persistent wet area over the leach field
  • Sewage is surfacing in the area of the septic tank or distribution box
  • There is sewage seeping through the foundation
  • The liquid level in the leach field is at the top of the crushed rock layer, the chambers or other underground structures
  • The vegetation over the leach field is greener and more lush than over adjacent areas in the yard
  • There is sewage odor in the yard at times or constantly
  • There is flow back from the leach field when the septic tank is pumped
  • The septic tank needs to be pumped frequently
  • The septic tank discharge baffle is damaged or missing
  • Rain water seems to take longer to disappear over the leach field than over adjacent areas in the yard
  • Well water is contaminated

Our client has noticed sewage smells in their yard and persistent wet areas over their leach field. Their system is a candidate for the White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator, an economical, environmentally sound and permanent alternative to leach field replacement. 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 is capacity to deliver effluent to the soil for purification.

The White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator can be used to:

  • Protect drain fields from ever biologically failing
  • Improve the function of marginally operating drain fields
  • Restore the function of totally failed drain fields
  • Improve the quality of effluent returning to the soil and ground water
  • Reduce the amount of nitrate moving into the environment
  • Reduce the size of a leach field required for new building construction
  • Expand the size of existing structures without expanding the leach field

The White Knight™ advantage 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 recently installed the White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator in properties in Norton, Attleboro, Marshfield and Blackstone MA. If you suspect that your septic system may be failing or if you have any questions about the White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit

Title 5 Inspections For Property Owners Who Are Selling

Septic Preservation Services regularly provide Title 5 Septic Inspections to property owners who are selling and need to have their septic system inspected before a property transfer can take place. Today we have Title 5 inspections for customers in Bridgewater, Halifax, Hanover, Scituate, Marshfield and Canton MA. In Massachusetts a septic inspection is required in the following instances:

  • 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.
  • When there is a proposed change to the facility which requires a building or occupancy permit.
  • Any change in the footprint of a building, to make sure that new building construction will not take place on top of any system components or on the system’s reserve area.
  • For large systems with a design flow of 10,000 to 15,000 gallons per day or more at full build-out, on the basin schedule shown in 310 CMR 15.301(6), and every five years thereafter.
  • Every 3 years for shared systems.
  • When the property is divided, or ownership of 2 or more properties is combined.
  • When MassDEP or the local Board of Health orders an inspection

For more information see:

What is worth noting is that your inspection, once done, is valid for 2 years so ideally we would recommend that if you are selling a property with a septic system that you have the Title 5 inspection done as soon as possible. This way if it does unearth any problems you can have them fixed when it wont cause problematic delays. When you have a valid septic inspection which your system has passed that is just one more positive for your property for potential buyers. If you need to schedule a septic inspection or if you have questions about Title 5 inspections or septic systems please do contact us at our Norton Office on 877-378-4279 or visit

Septic Pumping Is Essential Septic System Maintenance

Septic Preservation Services not only installs septic systems and repairs septic systems but also provides essential septic system maintenance – perhaps most importantly septic pumping. Septic Systems must be pumped periodically to remain operating correctly. Even if your system seems to be working correctly you do not want to wait it until it shows evidence of septic problems before you choose to pump your system. By then you could have a large septic problem which may require an expensive septic repair whereas staying on top of your septic pumping schedule will ensure that you are doing the most important part of maintaining your septic system. Septic systems do not need to be pumped that often, if fact if you pump too often you can harm your septic system by removing the beneficial bacteria that is required to process your waste. 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. You only need to have your system pumped annually if you have a garbage disposal. Today we have septic pumping appointments in Bridgewater, Carver, Plymouth, Marshfield, Hingham and Scituate MA. If it has been over three years since you had your septic tank pumped, give Septic Preservation Services a call at our Norton office on 877-378-4279 for an evaluation and to set up quick and easy pumping arrangements.

Title 5 Inspections Conducted For Property Owners Who Are Selling Their Home Or Commercial Property

Septic Preservation Services know that as stated on the Massachusetts Official Website of the Executive office of Energy and Environmental Affairs:

“a system shall be inspected at or within two years prior to the time of transfer of title to the facility served by the system.  An inspection conducted up to three years before the time of transfer may be used if the inspection report is accompanied by system pumping records demonstrating that the system has been pumped at least once a year during that time.  “

Because of this many of our Title 5 Inspections are for property owners who are selling their home or commercial property and need to have a Title 5 Septic Inspection done. We do also have septic inspections scheduled for people who are buying a property and want to have their own inspection done prior to purchase of the property.
