Septic System Installation

Septic Preservation Services Septic Preservation Services have a septic system installation starting today in Blackstone, Massachusetts for a property that is being sold and has failed its Title 5 septic Inspection.  The homeowner was not required to have their septic system replaced but have chosen to do so to better enable them to sell their property quickly and at a higher price.

We provided the initial septic design and are now doing the septic installation having ensured all relevant local permits have been pulled and regulations followed.

If you require a septic system installation or if you have any questions about septic installations please do contact our Norton office at 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

Septic System Cleaning and Pumping

SEPTIC CLEANING & PUMPING

pump outPart of any good Preventative Maintenance Program is to ensure that your septic system is properly cleaned and is pumped on a regular basis. It is important to know the facts about septic cleaning and pumping to avoid making costly mistakes.

SEPTIC CLEANING

Getting your tanks cleaned on a regular basis will help to improve the efficiency of your septic system and keep it running smooth. It is important to select your service provider carefully to ensure that you get quality work.  Be sure that when comparing prices that you compare apples to apples.  Some differences that may effect cost are the size of the tank, how deep the covers are buried, and if there is a filter to clean.

Septic Preservation Services takes pride in the work that we do, utilizing specialized equipment to locate specific areas of your system, such as a sewer camera that is used to investigate the inside of your sewer lines, and jetting equipment to clean the pipes within the leach field.

SEPTIC PUMPING

pumpingSome pumping services will 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 based on the accumulation of sludge and scum, which is typically every 2-5 years.  Pumping too frequently is costly and removes the “good” bacteria that keep the system running smoothly.

If you would like a system evaluation and to know how often you should be pumping, give SPS a call for an evaluation and to set up quick and easy pumping arrangements.
