Fall Planting Can Result in a Leach Field Repair Being Necessary

Septic Preservation Services know that in the fall many people are out raking leaves, pruning and generally getting their yards ready for winter. What most non gardeners do not realize is that for many tree varieties late August, September and October are also the best months to plant them. In fall, the tree can make new roots without having to feed the leaves. Water requirements are much lower without the leaves on the tree. To us it feels cool in fall, but that is actually the best temperature for root growth. Roots grow best in cool soil. A fall planting allows the tree to grow roots in fall and again early spring before leaves develop. This gives the tree a good chance to lay down a good set of roots before they need to collect water and nutrients for the leaves. Unfortunately when you are planting large shrubs or trees in your yard if you do so on your leach field you can unknowingly create a septic problem. The roots and sometimes weight of plants can actually damage your drain field which means that your septic system is no longer working correctly and you may need a leach field repair. Septic systems do an amazing job of returning liquids to the soil for purification but the whole system needs to be functioning correctly for this to happen. When septic system failure occurs, the conditions they create are dangerous. These can include:

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

Today we are at a customer’s home in Portsmouth RI proving a leach field repair which has been damaged when they planed an orchard over it last year. The roots combined with heavy machinery being parked on to of the drainfield during construction have both lead to structural collapse of the leach field piping. A strong sewage odor and dampness over their yard was luckily a sign of a septic problem that the homeowners did not ignore. We can repair the damage so they do not have to worry about the consequences of an inoperative septic system. We also have other septic repairs scheduled today in North Kingstown, Jamestown, Narragansett, Exeter and Richmond RI.

Septic Pumping Is Essential Maintenance For Your Septic System

Septic Preservation Services are available to provide regular maintenance to septic system owners. The most important maintenance for a system is regular septic pumping. Septic tanks must be pumped regularly to ensure they function correctly. If the septic system is not pumped in a timely manner, solids will bypass the effluent tee or baffle and clog the soil absorption system. Unabated, this will eventually result in hydraulic failure (e.g., plumbing backup and wastewater breakout). As you can imagine septic backup and breakout is not a pleasant or cheap thing to fix. Therefore it is always advisable to have your septic system pumped before it get to this critical point. The regularity of pumping depends on a variety of factors including the size of your septic tank and your water usage but it is generally suggested that a septic tank is pumped every 3-5 years. If you have a garbage disposal you will need to have your septic pumped annually. If you are unsure if your tank needs to be pumped please contact us and we may be able to help. Today we have septic pump outs scheduled today in Cranston, Scituate, East Greenwich, Coventry, Johnston and North Kingstown Rhode Island. If you have questions about septic pumping or if you need to schedule a septic pump out please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com

Septic Pumping Is Essential Maintenance For Your Septic System

Septic Preservation Services can help you ensure that your septic system continues to operate correctly by pumping your septic tank. 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 late because the results can be unpleasant and expensive to fix. The regularity that your tank needs to be pumped will vary 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 more their tank pumped sooner than a home of a retired couple. However this too can very dramatically if that couple have extended family visiting for a prolonged period.

A Properly Maintained Septic System Should Only Need A Septic Pump Out Every 2-5 years

Septic Preservation Services know that having the correct information about septic system maintenance enables clients to make good choices to ensure that their septic system remains working correctly for many years. We have been told that some pumping services will unbelievably tell you that you need to get your septic system pumped every 6 months or on an annual basis. The truth is that 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 will, however, need to have your system pumped annually if you have, and use, a garbage disposal because this will dramatically increase your pump out requirements. Today we have septic pump out scheduled for customers in Cranston, Coventry, North Kingstown, Exeter and Scituate RI. If it has been over three years since you had your septic tank pumped, give Septic Preservation Services a call on 877-378-4279 for an evaluation and to set up quick and easy pumping arrangements.
