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.
