We Provide Septic Education and Information In Addition To Septic Inspections And Other Septic Services

Septic Preservation Services helps many property owners who are selling their home or commercial property with septic inspections which are usually required if you have a septic system and are selling your property. We are also always willing to provide information and support to the new property owners who may not have had a septic system previously. There are definitely some dos’ and don’ts’ that apply when you own a septic system that are not generally too difficult to follow but if you don’t you might end up needing a septic repair to fix a problem that you have unknowingly created.

For example if you have just bought a new house a lot of people want to then start decorating and putting their own stamp on their new home. When you are cleaning up after decorating you must always remember to clean your brushes and paint trays in a bucket and not to dispose of that water down your drain and definitely don’t dispose of paint down your drain. We know that one of the benefits of latex paint is the ease of its cleanup with soap and water. This might cause you to think that it is okay to pour latex paint down the drain or your clean up water. This is not true. While your septic system can usually handle small amounts of latex paint, it should be avoided when possible. Septic systems use naturally occurring, living organisms to break down, digest and treat solid and liquid waste that is introduced into the septic tank. Toxic household chemicals can kill these organisms, resulting in a failure of your septic system. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) notes that while common culprits include oil-based paints, solvents and cleaning products that are labeled as poison or hazardous, even latex paint cleanup should be minimized. Latex paints may contain toxic substances, including ethylene glycol or acetate, according to the National Drinking Water Clearinghouse. So be cautious when you clean your brushes because even small amounts of latex paint may be detrimental to your septic system. Your septic system is primarily designed to break down, digest and treat organic materials. The organisms that live in your septic system typically cannot digest the solid materials present in latex paint. These solids will settle to the bottom of your septic tank, where they can result in a thick, gray putty-like material.

Here is a list of septic system dos and dont’s:

Things you should do

DO conserve water whenever possible as a means of reducing the volume of wastewater that will need to be treated and disposed.
DO make repairs to any faucets or toilets that are leaking.
DO make sure that you are only discharging biodegradable wastes into your system.

DO take the time to ensure that any down spouts or other surface water is diverted away from your drainfield.
DO keep the cover to your septic tank accessible by installing covers and risers for easier inspections and pumping.

Independence Day!

Septic Preservation Services wishes all of its customers Happy July 4th! As we celebrate Independence Day with our families and friends we know that no one wants to be concerned with septic problems. However septic problems do happen and if you have a septic system you need to know what may indicate a septic problem.

Some signs of a septic issue are:

  • Muddy soil or pools of wastewater around your septic tank or soil absorption system.
  • Very green or lush grass a vegetation on your leach field or near your septic tank.
  • Sewage smells around your system or inside your house.
  • Backups when you do laundry, take showers, or flush the toilet.

If you see these signs it is never a good idea to wait to have them looked at. A small septic problem with an easy and inexpensive repair can become a much larger, more expensive and more disruptive problem if left unaddressed. We have extensive experience locating and repairing septic septic problems. We have recently repaired septic systems in Berlin, Southborough, Upton, Marshfield and North Attleboro MA.
