Septic Pumping Is Essential Septic System Maintenance

Septic Preservation Services not only installs septic systems and repairs septic systems but also provides essential septic system maintenance – perhaps most importantly septic pumping. Septic Systems must be pumped periodically to remain operating correctly. Even if your system seems to be working correctly you do not want to wait it until it shows evidence of septic problems before you choose to pump your system. By then you could have a large septic problem which may require an expensive septic repair whereas staying on top of your septic pumping schedule will ensure that you are doing the most important part of maintaining your septic system. Septic systems do not need to be pumped that often, if fact if you pump too often you can harm your septic system by removing the beneficial bacteria that is required to process your waste. 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 only need to have your system pumped annually if you have a garbage disposal. Today we have septic pumping appointments in Bridgewater, Carver, Plymouth, Marshfield, Hingham and Scituate MA. If it has been over three years since you had your septic tank pumped, give Septic Preservation Services a call at our Norton office on 877-378-4279 for an evaluation and to set up quick and easy pumping arrangements.

Title 5 Inspections Conducted For Property Owners Who Are Selling Their Home Or Commercial Property

Septic Preservation Services know that as stated on the Massachusetts Official Website of the Executive office of Energy and Environmental Affairs:

“a system shall be inspected at or within two years prior to the time of transfer of title to the facility served by the system.  An inspection conducted up to three years before the time of transfer may be used if the inspection report is accompanied by system pumping records demonstrating that the system has been pumped at least once a year during that time.  “

Because of this many of our Title 5 Inspections are for property owners who are selling their home or commercial property and need to have a Title 5 Septic Inspection done. We do also have septic inspections scheduled for people who are buying a property and want to have their own inspection done prior to purchase of the property. Today we have Title 5 Septic Inspections in Plymouth, Bourne, Sandwich, Carver, Marshfield, Middleborough and Rochester MA. Whatever the reason for your septic inspection do contact our office where we will be happy to schedule an appointment. You can contact us at our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit

Septic System Usage Tips by Septic Preservation

Septic Preservation ServicesSeptic Preservation Services provides services and maintenance for septic system owners, however, we also provide information to septic system owners. We want to help ensure that septic system owners are using their septic system correctly, which will often mean that they will not need as many unscheduled maintenance and repairs. Conventional septic systems can function very well with minimal care. In fact, most septic tanks will only require an inspection and pumping out every three to five years if they are used properly.  A few good things to remember are:


  • Have your septic system inspected and pumped every 3 to 5 years.  If the tank fills up with an excess of solids, the wastewater will not have enough time to settle in the tank.  These excess solids will then pass on to the leach field, where they will clog the drain lines and soil.
  • Know the location of your septic system and drain field, and keep a record of all inspections, pumpings, repairs, contract or engineering work for future references.  Keep a sketch of it handy for service visits.
  • Take leftover hazardous chemicals to your approved hazardous waste collection center for disposal.   Use bleach, disinfectants, and drain and toilet bowl cleaners sparingly and in accordance with product labels.
  • Your toilet or sink is not a trash can  so don’t dump non-biodegradables (cigarette butts, diapers, feminine products, etc.) or grease down your sink or toilet.  Non-biodegradables can clog the pipes, while grease can thicken and clog the pipes.  Store cooking oils, fats, and grease in a can for disposal in the garbage.
  • Do not put paint thinner, polyurethane, anti-freeze, pesticides, some dyes, disinfectants, water softeners, and other strong chemicals into the system.  These can cause major upsets in the septic tank by killing the biological part of your septic system and polluting the groundwater. Small amounts of standard household cleaners, drain cleansers, detergents, etc. will be diluted in the tank and should cause no damage to the system.
  • Excessive laundry loads with your washing machine does not allow your septic tank time to adequately treat wastes and overwhelms the entire system with excess wastewater.
  • Do not use chemical solvents to clean the plumbing or septic system. “Miracle” chemicals will kill microorganisms that consume harmful wastes.  These products can also cause groundwater contamination
