Today we have septic services scheduled in Lakeville, Acushnet, Rochester, Dighton, Raynham and Norton MA. If you require a septic system service or if you have any questions about septic systems or the septic services we provide please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com

Septic Repairs Can Sometimes Be Avoided Following Simple Steps

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

Title 5 Inspections For Condominiums In Addition to Private Homes and Commercial Buildings

Septic Preservation Services know that if you live in a condominium without town sewer you are unlikely to have anything to do with your septic system. This is because unless otherwise stated in your condominium associations governing documents:

“The condominium association is responsible for the inspection, maintenance and upgrade of the system or systems serving the units” as specified on the Mass Gov website. If goes further to say:

“Condominium systems should be inspected once every 3 years. Condominium developments with 4 or fewer units should also have their system inspected every 3 years, or within 2 years prior to the sale of one of the units.” for more information see –

We provide Title 5 Inspections for condominium associations as well as private homes and commercial properties including restaurants and office buildings. Today we have Title 5 Inspections in Middleboro, Mansfield, Bourne, Carver, Marion and Rochester MA including one for a large condominium building of more than 5 units.

Septic Repairs and Septic Upgrades Even If It Is Wet Out!

Today we have septic repairs and septic upgrades scheduled for customers in Mattapoisett, Marion, Westport, New Bedford, Fairhaven and Acushnet MA. We are also adding a riser to the outlet of a septic tank for a customer in Rochester MA. Adding risers, covers and filters to your septic system will improve its effectiveness. Our strong, durable risers and system covers make your septic system more accessible and also much safer and more attractive. Once installed, homeowners are able to provide easy access to the system for future septic repairs, septic upgrades or cleaning services, eliminating the need to dig and excavate the system each time it needs to be pumped. Another septic upgrade we can provide to customers is the addition of an effluent filter. Engineers, scientists and educators in the septic industry suggest that property owners install an effluent filter in the outlet tee of their septic tank to extend the life of their system. Due to the high cost associated with replacing a septic system, these seemingly small upgrades to your system can pay off in a big way. If you would be interested in septic system upgrades or if you need a septic repair please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

Sewage Grinder Pump Repair in Acushnet MA

Septic Preservation Services have been called to a customer’s property in Acushnet MA to repair their sewage grinder pump. This doesn’t sound especially appealing but has an important role in their septic system so needs to be operating correctly. A grinder pump is a wastewater conveyance device. Waste from water-using household appliances (toilets, bathtubs, washing machines etc) flows through the home’s pipes into the grinder pump’s holding tank. Once the wastewater inside the tank reaches a specific level, the pump will turn on, grind the waste into a fine slurry, and pump it to the septic tank. We have extensive experience with septic systems and repairing different elements of them including d-boxes, septic pumps and drain fields. We also provide septic upgrades and improvements such as the addition of risers, covers and effluent filters. When your septic system is more accessible, it is also much more safe and attractive. These goals can be achieved through the use of strong, durable risers and system covers. Once installed, homeowners are able to provide easy access to the system for future repairs, upgrades or cleaning services, eliminating the need to dig and excavate the system each time it needs to be pumped. The addition of an effluent filter in the outlet tee of your septic tank can extend the life of your septic system. We are at a customer property in Attleboro MA installing a septic system cover today in addition to providing septic repairs in Rochester and Lakeville MA. If you require a septic repair or if you are interested in septic improvements please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com

A Title 5 Inspection Is Usually Required When A Property With A Septic System Is Sold

Septic Preservation Services know that moving home at any time of the year is a stressful and time consuming business. If you are selling a home in addition to buying a home this just seems to double the workload. Therefore we try to make one small part of your move as painless as possible. If you are selling a home with a septic system in Massachusetts you are likely to need to have a Title 5 Inspection. As stated on the Mass Gov Website:

“In order to ensure that septic systems (conventional septic systems, cesspools, and innovative/alternative systems) are protective of human health and the environment, MassDEP generally requires that systems be inspected when a property is sold.

When is an inspection required?
When a property is sold to new owners, or there otherwise is a transfer of title to new owners, with certain exceptions.
Title 5 does not require a system inspection if the transfer is of residential real property, and is between the following relationships:
(1) between current spouses;
(2) between parents and their children;
(3) between full siblings; and
(4) where the grantor transfers the real property to be held in a revocable or irrevocable trust, where at least one of the designated beneficiaries is of the first degree of relationship to the grantor”.

For more information see

We have extensive experience providing septic inspections in this region for property owners. We have excellent relationships with many realtors because they have worked with us before, in some instances on multiple occasions, and know that we provide through, reliable and prompt inspections to their clients. Many of our septic inspections come from referrals from realtors to their clients. Our Inspectors have recently been to properties in Uxbridge, Lynnfield, Norton, Sutton and Rochester MA to provide a Title 5 Inspection. If you are moving and require more information on Title 5 Inspections or have any questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

The Health Of Your Septic System Is Improved Through The Addition Of Septic System Bacteria Products

Septic Preservation Services hopes that everyone who took part in the Black Friday sales last week came home with a few bargains and no buyers remorse. Sometimes a ‘bargain’ on the shelf turns out to be a mistake if it is either not as cheap as it originally seemed or not the quality product that it first appeared on closer inspection. This can also be true for septic services and why it is always sensible to research the septic company that you choose to use. Septic Preservation Services has been working in the septic industry for over 25 years in this region and has an excellent reputation for providing quality septic services. We take pride in the work that we do and ensure that all of our technicians are trained with up to date methods and have state of the art equipment. Even with a seemingly simple task as septic pumping it is always a good idea to check the company that you choose to use because keeping your septic system clean and healthy, including its bacteria, is the best way to avoid costly repairs to your septic system, be it a septic tank, cesspool or some other style system.

Septic Preservation Services helps to ensure your system remains as healthy as possible through periodic pumping and system checks. Our professionally trained staff is there to identify potential issues before they become big problems.  To prevent problems, we ensure the solids in your system are cleared out and remain at a level consistent with a healthy system. We also check and clear filters, if one is present, to be sure it doesn’t let any solids into the soil absorption system. The health of the system is also improved through addition of septic system bacteria products to your system by our professional staff. These bacteria help break down the organic solids in your tank which reduces buildup over time, reduces odors and keeps your pipes clean.

Today we are pumping a client’s septic tank in Rochester MA and also adding bacteria products. With proper maintenance these additives can ensure the success and health of your system. Today we also have septic pumping scheduled for customers in Mattapoisett, New Bedford, Fairhaven and Marion MA. If you need to have your septic tank pumped or if you have any questions about septic pumping, septic systems or septic bacteria  please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
