Septic Pumping Is Essential Maintenance For Your Septic System

Septic Preservation Services are available to provide regular maintenance to septic system owners. The most important maintenance for a system is regular septic pumping. Septic tanks must be pumped regularly to ensure they function correctly. If the septic system is not pumped in a timely manner, solids will bypass the effluent tee or baffle and clog the soil absorption system. Unabated, this will eventually result in hydraulic failure (e.g., plumbing backup and wastewater breakout). As you can imagine septic backup and breakout is not a pleasant or cheap thing to fix. Therefore it is always advisable to have your septic system pumped before it get to this critical point. The regularity of pumping depends on a variety of factors including the size of your septic tank and your water usage but it is generally suggested that a septic tank is pumped every 3-5 years. If you have a garbage disposal you will need to have your septic pumped annually. If you are unsure if your tank needs to be pumped please contact us and we may be able to help. Today we have septic pump outs scheduled today in Cranston, Scituate, East Greenwich, Coventry, Johnston and North Kingstown Rhode Island. If you have questions about septic pumping or if you need to schedule a septic pump out please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit

Title 5 Septic Inspections Carried Out in Massachusetts

Septic Preservation Services are pleased that the majority of snow finally melted over the weekend. Although we can still carry out septic services in winter some tasks can’t be done when the ground is frozen and covered in over a foot of snow. However we know that while winter can slow a lot of things down people still need to move house and if they have a septic system in Massachusetts they are required to have a Title 5 Septic Inspection done. Thankfully the regulations acknowledge that living in New England sometimes means that the weather will play a factor in planning so it is stated on the Massachusetts Government Website that”

“If weather conditions prevent an inspection before a sale, Title 5 allows the inspection to be done up to 6 months afterwards, provided that the seller notifies the buyer in writing of the need to complete the inspection.”

For more information see:

Today we have Title 5 Septic Inspections scheduled for customers in Norwell, Scituate, Hanover, Hingham, Canton and Stoughton MA. These inspections include ones that had to be rescheduled due to the severe snow we recieved a week ago.

A Properly Maintained Septic System Should Only Need A Septic Pump Out Every 2-5 years

Septic Preservation Services know that having the correct information about septic system maintenance enables clients to make good choices to ensure that their septic system remains working correctly for many years. We have been told that some pumping services will unbelievably tell you that you need to get your septic system pumped every 6 months or on an annual basis. The truth is that 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 will, however, need to have your system pumped annually if you have, and use, a garbage disposal because this will dramatically increase your pump out requirements. Today we have septic pump out scheduled for customers in Cranston, Coventry, North Kingstown, Exeter and Scituate RI. If it has been over three years since you had your septic tank pumped, give Septic Preservation Services a call on 877-378-4279 for an evaluation and to set up quick and easy pumping arrangements.
