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 frequently 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 Norton, Attleboro, Rehoboth, Seekonk and Swansea MA. If it has been over three years since you had your septic tank pumped, give Septic Preservation Services call at our Norton office on 877 378 4279 for an evaluation and to set up quick and easy pumping arrangements.
Septic Preservation Services has been working within the septic industry in this region for over a quarter of a century. In this time we have not only gained extensive experience in the industry but have also gained skills in areas that you would not expect a septic company to work. Today we are prepping, forming, pouring and finishing a concrete sidewalk for a customer in Attleboro MA. We are also doing some landscaping which involves filling in a low point in their yard. While this work is all associated with more traditional septic work that we are also doing for our client we do have the equipment and expertise to do these construction jobs without having to go to subcontractors. We can do this work so we can be certain that it will be done correctly to our own high standards. We have other septic engineering appointments today including perc testing and a septic design meeting in Attleboro, Rehoboth, Sharon, Norton, Seekonk, Taunton and Dighton MA.

Septic Preservation Services know that septic pumping does not sound (or smell) very appealing but having your septic system pumped regularly is an essential part of septic system maintenance. Even if your septic system has been used correctly and is operating perfectly you will still always need to have it pumped, usually every 3-5 years. Although your septic system treats effluent the build up of solid waste can not be avoided and your system will need to be pumped. If you leave it too long there will be unpleasant and sometimes unsafe septic problems that could lead to a total system failure. To avoid this have your septic system pumped regularly. Today we have septic pumping scheduled in North Attleboro, Attleboro, Norton, Raynham, Rehoboth, Dighton and Freetown MA. If you require a septic pump out or if you have any questions about septic pumping or septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com

Septic Preservation Services know that a property does not need to be way out in the countryside to need to have a septic system. Before I moved into a home with a septic system I had certainly always just assumed that if a property was in a town or city it would be on town sewer. However I lived in two homes in the city of Attleboro MA both of which were certainly not in the countryside and both of which had septic systems because they were not on town sewer. I discovered that this was not unusual and definitely not the daunting prospect it first seemed when my realtor mentioned it. Increasingly as more and more property is built in New England the number that do not have access to town sewer is rising. Therefore the number of septic installations for new properties is also increasing. Septic Preservation Services certainly carry out many septic system installations in the region each year and the number is steadily growing. We also provide the septic engineering which is required before an installation can take place including septic design, soil testing and perc tests. An essential part of a septic system is the leach field and the soil in the leach area needs to be sufficiently permeable so that it can readily absorb the liquid effluent flowing into it. A site must also not have soil that is too permeable, allowing the effluent to reach the groundwater before it is fully treated. Very steep slopes are also unsuitable for a conventional leach field. In addition there must be at least a few feet of good soil from the bottom of the leach pipes to the rock or impervious hardpan below, or to the water table. The perc test provides the data to determine the suitability of a site for a septic system. In general, soils with high sand and gravel content drain the best and soils with a high clay content or solid rock are the worst. Most soils fall somewhere in the middle with a mix of course sand and gravel particles, small silt particles and tiny clay particles. Today we are conducting a perc test for a customer in Attleboro MA who is considering a building plot and needs to know its suitability for a septic system before proceeding. Even if a conventional septic system is not possible, depending on the perc test results, at Septic Preservation Services we have experience with alternative septic systems when it seems that a conventional system may not work. We are also providing septic engineering services to customers today in Norton, Seekonk, Rehoboth, Taunton and Freetown MA. If you require septic engineering or have any questions about septic systems please do contact us at our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
Septic Preservation Services were called out for a septic repair to a septic system for a private home in Norton MA. The home owner had been noticing sewage smells coming from their plumbing and slow running drains so called us to discuss their concerns. Luckily they did not procrastinate for long and we were able to provide a simple septic repair for them which may not have been possible if they had waited for much longer. Small septic issues can become large septic problems and even total septic failures if they are left unattended for too long. We also have septic repairs today in Rehoboth, Attleboro, Seekonk, Mansfield and Taunton MA. If you need a septic repair or if you have questions or concerns about your septic system please do contact us at our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com where we would be happy to help you.
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
Septic Preservation Services have trained septic experts who can assist property owners with their septic engineering requirements. We can provide services to improve or repair your property such as soil evaluations, septic design and land use planning, septic improvements such as installation of risers, covers or filters and construction layouts for large or small commercial developments. Today we are conducting a soil evaluation for a customer in Norton MA. The soil evaluation will determine if the client’s building site is suitable for a conventional septic system and is typically called a “perc test’ or “perk test” (a percolation test). Traditional septic systems only work if the soil in the leach area is sufficiently permeable that it can readily absorb the liquid effluent flowing into it. Also, there must be at least a few feet of good soil from the bottom of the leach pipes to the rock or impervious hardpan below, or to the water table. Less commonly, a site can fail because the soil is too permeable, allowing the effluent to reach the groundwater before it is fully treated. Very steep slopes are also unsuitable for a conventional leach field. The specific standards vary from town to town, but any of these characteristics can prohibit the use of a standard gravity-fed septic system. Septic Preservation Services have extensive experience with various types of septic system so there are always alternative systems that can be used if the perc test does show some unfavourable results for a conventional system. We also have extensive experience with towns in this region so we know the individual requirements for different towns. We have other septic engineering appointments today in Attleboro, Rehoboth, Raynham and Dighton MA.

Septic Preservation Services knows that proper preventative maintenance can extend the life of your septic system. Systems that are not regularly maintained will average less than 20 years, however studies conducted by field professors, scientists and engineers reveal that proper maintenance can help a septic system to last indefinitely. This can save homeowners thousands of dollars over a lifetime.
Our septic services give our residential and commercial clients peace of mind in knowing that their septic system is being properly maintained, checked and monitored. Today we have septic services for those customers in Taunton, Rehoboth, Swansea, Seekonk and Norton MA.
We provide our customers on a service contract with regular monitoring of the entire septic system. We service many types of system including Singulair, FAST, Advanced Treatment Unit and Sand Filter Services. We service septic systems in a quarterly, biannual or annual basis depending on the septic system and the needs of our client. For example a busy restaurant’s septic system will require more regular services that a small home belonging to a retired couple. Once an appointment has been scheduled our customers do not even usually need to be home for the service which makes septic system maintenance as hassle free as possible. If you would be interested in a septic service or if you have any questions about septic systems please contact us at our Norton Office on 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
