Septic Repairs Can Sometimes Be Avoided Following Simple Steps

Septic Preservation Services provide advice to their customers to ensure that they use their septic systems correctly and are therefore less likely to have septic system problems. Very importantly to take good care of your septic systems you should know which items should never be flushed down the drain or toilet. This is because these things can overtax or destroy the biological digestion taking place within the system or clog pumps and pipes.

Take care not to flush the following:

  • hair combings, dental floss, disposable diapers, condoms, gauze bandages, sanitary napkins, tampons
  • coffee grounds, kitty litter, fat, grease, oil, cigarette butts, paper towels
  • chemicals that could contaminate surface and groundwater, such as paints, varnishes, thinners, waste oils, photographic solutions, or pesticides.

Unfortunately we have attended many septic repairs that could have been avoided if this advice had been followed. Today we have septic repairs scheduled in Rochester, Rehoboth, Berkley, Lakeville and Middleboro MA. If you require a septic repair or if you have any questions please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com

Title 5 Inspections For Condominiums In Addition to Private Homes and Commercial Buildings

Septic Preservation Services know that if you live in a condominium without town sewer you are unlikely to have anything to do with your septic system. This is because unless otherwise stated in your condominium associations governing documents:

“The condominium association is responsible for the inspection, maintenance and upgrade of the system or systems serving the units” as specified on the Mass Gov website. If goes further to say:

“Condominium systems should be inspected once every 3 years. Condominium developments with 4 or fewer units should also have their system inspected every 3 years, or within 2 years prior to the sale of one of the units.” for more information see –

https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system

We provide Title 5 Inspections for condominium associations as well as private homes and commercial properties including restaurants and office buildings. Today we have Title 5 Inspections in Middleboro, Mansfield, Bourne, Carver, Marion and Rochester MA including one for a large condominium building of more than 5 units.

When Cooking Your Thanksgiving Turkey Dont Pour Oil, Fats Or Grease Down The Sink

Septic Preservation Services wishes everyone a Happy Thanksgiving for tomorrow. We know our customers are also looking forward to Thanksgiving and food preparation is well underway for Thanksgiving Meals. We would like to remind our customers that it is not a good idea to put any type of cooking oil, fat or grease down the sink where it can enter your septic system. Whilst a well maintained septic system can cope with small amounts of fat, oil and grease, such as natural body oils that go into your septic system when you shower, if you regularly introduce cooking fats, oils and grease into your septic system it could result in a septic system failure if left . Just remember when you are making your beautifully juicy turkey dinner do not pour the fat, oil or grease down your sink. We have been conducting Septic Repairs in Carver, Middleboro, Halifax, Norton and Taunton MA that could have been easily avoided with a little knowledge and preventative measures. If you have a question about your septic system or you need to schedule a septic repair please contact us on 877-348-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

Happy Columbus Day!

Septic Preservation Services says Happy Columbus Day! Today is the official anniversary of the arrival of Christopher Columbus to the Americas in 1492. Thankfully septic systems have evolved from the times when human waste was thrown out of a window or let out into the local water system. However if your septic system ceases to function correctly and fails the same diseases that threatened our ancestors are still a concern. As stated on the Massachusetts Official Website of Energy and Environmental Affairs:

“Inadequately treated sewage from failing septic systems poses a significant threat to drinking water and human health because diseases and infections may be transferred to people and animals directly and immediately. Dysentery, hepatitis, typhoid fever, and acute gastrointestinal illness are some of the more serious examples. Inadequately treated sewage from failing septic systems is the most frequently reported cause of groundwater contamination.”

Therefore if you have a concern that your septic system is not working correctly, for example you can smell sewage, there is puddling in your yard or you are having backups in your home it is always wise to seek professional help as soon as possible. A small easily fixed problem can rapidly become a large and expensive repair if left to get worse. Today we are at customer locations in Raynham, Bridgewater, Taunton, Middleboro, Lakeville and Norton MA carrying out septic system repairs including septic pump repairs and leach field repairs. If you need advice or wish to make an appointment please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

Septic Pumping is Essential

Septic Preservation Services Septic Preservation Services can help you ensure that your septic system continues to operate correctly by having your septic tank pumped.  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 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 their tank pumped sooner than a home with 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 Mansfield, Norton, Lakeville, Rochester, Marion, Middleboro, and Carver, MA.  If you need to schedule an appointment or if you have any questions please do contact our office at 877-378-4279 or visit www.allclearseptic.com
