Functional Inspections To Provide Septic System Information When Property Is Sold

Septic Preservation Services have been working with Rhode Island property owners for over 20 years providing septic inspections, septic repairs, septic maintenance including septic pumping and septic cleaning and septic designs. With one third of the state’s households using some form of septic system for sewage disposal there are a lot of septic systems that require attention. If you have never had a property with a septic system the prospect can be daunting but with minimal maintenance and some guidelines a septic system will happily do its job with minimal interference. However if you are purchasing a property with a septic system you do want to ensure that the necessary maintenance has taken place so the system is working correctly because a failing system is a large environmental, economical and logistical problem. Therefore a Functional Inspection was devised which:

‘is used to determine whether a system is adequate to serve the wastewater disposal needs of the household. The functional inspection is especially intended for use during a property transfer as a means to protect the consumer and identify systems in need of upgrade or repair.” For more information see http://www.dem.ri.gov/pubs/regs/regs/water/isdsbook.pdf

We carry out these inspections for customers who are buying or selling property, both residential and commercial, and need to have an inspection to highlight the condition of their septic system. Today we have functional inspections scheduled in North Smithfield, Cranston, Cumberland, Lincoln, Smithfield and Coventry RI.

Septic First Maintenance Inspections In Rhode Island Towns Including Portsmouth

Septic Preservation Services has licensed septic inspectors who are carrying out Septic First Maintenance Inspections in Portsmouth, Middletown, Jamestown, North Kingstown and Narragansett RI today. The purpose of a First Maintenance Septic Inspection is to establish what type of septic system you have, if the system poses any risk to public health, if there is any risk to the environment, and determine if any immediate corrective actions should be taken. In some towns, for example Portsmouth RI:

“First Maintenance Inspections (FMIs) and pump outs are required for all Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems upon notification by the town. If you receive a letter requiring a FMI and you have had an inspection performed in the previous year, simply file that inspection report with the town – to fulfill this requirement. All FMIs will have to be completed within 60 days of notification.

Alternative/Experimental OWTS will not be required to have FMIs – only proof of a maintenance contract and annual servicing.” For more information see the town website –https://www.portsmouthri.com/419/Wastewater-Management

The town also provide a list of licensed inspectors. In Portsmouth Septic Preservation Services have five registered inspectors listed.

Our Monthly Safety Meeting Ensures That In Our Busiest Season Safety Is Not Compromised

Septic Preservation Services takes the safety of its employees and customers extremely seriously. Our May monthly safety meeting was designed to prepare our workforce for the coming busy season and to review common hazardous exposures, discuss safety controls and review dig-safe importance. We had employees attend the safety meeting in person and remotely from Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Maine. Traditionally we are always busier in the months from Spring – Fall with septic service contracts, septic repairs resulting from those services, work delayed due to weather, increased real estate movement and with the usual new customers and referrals. However this increased workload should not mean that safety is at all compromised and our monthly meetings are there to ensure that does not happen. The meeting specifically addressed topics including driving safety, infectious disease controls, ergonomics, preventing falls and confined space entry controls. We have an excellent reputation in New England and want to maintain that by ensuring that our staff receive the best possible training.

Septic Cleaning Will Help Improve Your Septic System’s Efficiency

Septic Preservation Services know that to keep your septic system working you need to maintain it. At a minimum you want to ensure that you have your septic tank pumped on a regular basis. How often depends on a variety of factors including the size of your septic tank and the use it gets but we would suggest every 3 -5 years. This changes to annually if you have a garbage disposal however. What you don’t want to do is pump too often. A properly maintained septic system should only be pumped as needed to avoid removing the “good” bacteria and to keep the system running smoothly. Sometimes just ‘pumping’ is not enough. Getting your tanks cleaned on a regular basis will also help to improve the efficiency of your septic system and keep it running smoothly. Septic Preservation Services takes pride in the work that we do, utilizing 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. You can be sure that when we provide septic pumping and cleaning that your system is clean and ready to go! Today we are providing septic cleaning to customers in Charlestown, Westerly, Narragansett, Richmond, Portsmouth and Jamestown RI. If you require septic pumping or septic cleaning or if you have any questions please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com
