Septic Pumping Should Be Done Every 3 – 5 Years

septic system cleaning and pumpingSeptic Preservation Services provide perhaps the most important septic system maintenance service – septic pumping. Septic Systems will always need to be pumped but the frequency can vary depending on a variety of factors including the size of your septic system and the number of people that are using it. However as a general guide you should have your septic system pumped every 3-5 years or annually if you have a garbage disposal. This is because normally, properly designed tanks have enough space for up to three to five years’ safe accumulation of sludge. When the sludge level increases beyond this point, sewage has less time to settle properly before leaving the tank. As the sludge level increases, more solid wastes escape into the soil absorption system (SAS) or leach field/ drain field. If the SAS becomes so clogged that it cannot absorb liquid at the rate at which it enters the tank, the plumbing will “back up” or unsanitary wastewater will bubble to the surface. You really don’t want to wait until you have sewage ‘bubbling’ to the surface in your yard or backing up into your house so it is a good idea to keep up with your septic pumping schedule. Today we have septic pumping scheduled for customers in Plymouth, Carver, Halifax, Rochester, Sandwich and Bourne MA. If you need to schedule a septic pump out or if you have questions about pumping or your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic Preservation Services Provide Septic Repairs And Advise

Septic Preservation Services are always happy to use our extensive knowledge in the septic industry gained over 25 years working with septic systems in the region to educate property owners with septic systems. If we can help someone avoid a septic breakdown by following some easy to follow suggestions we count that as a success. “Preservation” is in our name for a reason and we take the preservation of our environment seriously. A septic problem for one home can result in large problems that can affect the local environment including:

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

One problem is often created by property owners being unaware of the location of their leach field or drain field or not understanding the importance of its part in their septic system. They then park or drive vehicles over it causing damage. Your drain field and its associated piping are not built to sustain weight and can become easily damaged by vehicles parking on them. Even if the vehicle does not collapse the system, it can compact the soil causing drain field problems. Today we are providing a leach field septic repair for a property owner in Rochester who unknowingly damaged their system by allowing parking on their leach field during a party. We have other septic repairs today in Carver, Marion, Bourne, Middleboro and Plymouth MA. If you are concerned that your septic system is not operating as it should or if you have any questions about your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Excess Water In Your Septic System Can Result In Septic Problems

Septic Preservation Services regularly attend septic problems that could have been avoided if the property owner had better information and knowledge about how to ‘live’ in a home which has its own septic system and is not on town sewer. A mistake that many septic system owners make is to put too much water into the system. The decomposition process can become strained if there is too much excess water in the system, resulting in a variety of septic problems. Ideally, septic owners should only be using a maximum of 50 gallons of water per day, per person. The following averages for common household activities can help you keep track:

Dishwasher Cycle – 7 gallons
Washing Machine – 40 gallons per load (less with front-loader machines)
Toilet – 2 gallons per flush, 1.6 gallons for newer standard toilets
Shower – 2.5 gallons per minute (a 10 minute shower = 25 gallons)

It can be difficult to stay on top of usage, particularly for large families, but laying down some basic guidelines can help everyone to work together. New environmentally-friendly appliances, toilets and shower heads can help reduce usage without a lot of extra effort. A water meter can be helpful for households that feed off of a well. The government website http://energystar.gov also has a lot of helpful ideas and tips for reducing water usage.

Always remember that a septic system is installed based upon the number of people that are anticipated to be using it. If your base number increases, you might need to upgrade to a larger system.

We are providing a septic repair for a large family with a home in Hingham MA today and the root cause of their septic problems was that they were having a large laundry day once a week instead of spreading loads out over an entire week. This strained their system too much and has resulted in a repair being necessary. We have other septic repairs today in Marshfield, Plymouth, Carver, West Bridgewater and Stoughton MA. If you require a septic repair or if you have any questions about your septic system please do contact our Norton Office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

We Try To Make Septic Inspections As Simple As Possible

Septic Preservation Services know that a large portion of the septic inspections that we conduct are for people who are selling their property. In the State of Massachusetts it is required that a property have had a septic system inspection within the last two years before transfer can take place (obviously only if they have an individual septic system servicing that property). So generally unless the owner is selling a very new home or only purchased the home in the last two years a septic inspection is required. For more information see: https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system

We know that selling property is not an easy time, generally, so we endeavour to make the process as simple as possible. We will schedule your septic system inspection at a time that suits your timetable, when possible, and will be punctual, professional and thorough. We will also do simple things such as when we are investigating your system any earth that we dig up we will put on a tarp to enable us to more simply clean up after our visit. We know that when you are selling your home you want the lawn to look its best. It is small actions such as these coupled with our excellent reputation that results in much of our business coming from referrals from Realtors themselves because they have worked with us in the past and are happy to refer us to their clients because they would like to work with us again. Today we have septic inspections scheduled in Mattapoisett, Plymouth, Bourne, Marshfield, Carver and Halifax MA.

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.
DO get your septic tank pumped regularly and have it checked for any cracks or leaks.
DO have an effluent filter installed to prevent debris from entering your drainfield.
DO add a laundry filter to your washing machine.
DO put kitchen trash into a compost or throw it into the garbage – not down your drains.

Things you should NOT do
DON’T flush products such as tampons, sanitary napkins, condoms, disposable diapers or wipes into your system.
DON’T empty oils or other types of kitchen grease down your drain.
DON’T dump any items that can disrupt the treatment process or contaminate groundwater, such as: paints, oils, thinners, pesticides, poisons or disinfectants.
DON’T build anything over your drainfield or dig in it for any reason.

Septic Preventative Maintenance Such As Septic Cleaning Keeps Your System Working

Septic Preservation Services knows that the best way to ensure that your septic system continues to operate efficiently and correctly is to make sure that you provide your system with preventative maintenance. This essentially means that if you maintain your system you will prevent repairs being necessary and prevent premature septic system failure. All septic systems need to be pumped regularly because your septic tank will eventually fill up with solids which it can not process like it can liquid effluent to safely return to the soil. If you neglect septic pumping and your septic tank does become full you will start to see, and smell, all sorts of septic problems and if left septic failure which is expensive, unpleasant and potentially dangerous to your health and the health of your family and neighbors. In addition to septic pumping septic cleaning can also be very beneficial to your septic system. Getting your tanks cleaned on a regular basis will help to improve the efficiency of your septic system and keep it running smoothly. Not all septic pumping companies will also clean your septic system. We utilize specialized miniature equipment to locate specific areas of your system, such as a sewer cam that is used to investigate the inside of your sewer lines, and jetting equipment to clean the pipes within the leach field. Today we have septic cleaning scheduled in Carver, Plymouth, Bourne, Sandwich and Marshfield MA.

Regular Septic Maintenance Is Essential To Keep Your Septic System Working

Septic Preservation Services know that if a septic system is used correctly and maintained it should process your wastewater effectively and efficiently without interference. However if you neglect regular maintenance your septic system will undoubtedly stop working effectively and could eventually fail which is unpleasant and costly and either means a septic repair or even septic system replacement. Regular septic maintenance does not need to happen that often. It is generally recommended that a septic system is pumped every 3-5 years. The exact regularity of your septic pumps outs is determined by a variety of factors including your water usage and size of your tank. For example a retired couple living in a large 5 bedroom family home with occasional family visitors will not need to have their tank pumped as often as they did when they have 4 teenagers living at home. You will, however, need to have you septic system pumped annually if you use a garbage disposal. Today we have septic pumping scheduled in Norwell, Hingham, Marshfield, Scituate, Hanover, Plymouth and Halifax MA.
