Septic System Repairs Including a D-Box Replacement

Septic Preservation Services can provide our customers with septic system repairs on all parts of their system. Today we are replacing a d-box for a customer in Rowley MA. A septic distribution box (D-Box) is a container used to receive septic system effluent from a septic tank and to re-distribute the effluent into a network of attached drain field or leach field absorption trenches and pipes. The D-box works by gravity, flowing effluent into the drainfield (or leach field) piping network. It must be installed correctly to ensure that it distributes evenly. We are also assisting our customer with locating their leach field for easement and have the appropriate permission from their neighbour to do so. This may seem unnecessary but if a homeowner has moved into a property but was not provided with property designs or as built drawings for their property they may be unaware of the location of their septic system components. If your septic system is working correctly there should be very little evidence of the location of a leach field. However we have extensive experience with septic systems so will be able to locate a leach field when a homeowner may not be able to do so. We also have additional septic system repairs scheduled today in Boxford, Groveland, Middleton, North Reading, Peabody and Carlisle MA. If you require septic system repairs or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com

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

Septic Preservation Services knows that with the coming of Spring in New England that means rain. However we can still provide septic services to our customers even when 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.

A Leach Field Will Not Operate Correctly If A Driveway Or Parking Lot Is Put On Top Of It

Septic Preservation Services have been contacted by a customer in North Attleboro MA who has a leach field problem. Their home’s leach field has had a driveway installed that covers their leach field. As stated by the Massachusetts Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs:

“Impervious areas such as driveways or parking lots restrict air passing through the soils. In addition, the weight of the cars can compact the soil and may break distribution pipes. Lack of oxygen prevents the degradation of the septic tank effluent in the soil, and compaction reduces flow, making the system likely to clog and fail. Soil absorption systems which are placed under driveways are required, by 310 CMR 15.240 (7), to be vented to the atmosphere. Additional standards apply to system components in areas where automobile or other heavy equipment is anticipated.”

Their leach field does not have the venting required and compacting has resulted in the distribution pipes breaking when large heavy vehicles were mistakenly parked on the driveway. Septic Preservation Services have the excavation equipment necessary for this septic repair and have the qualified operators that ensure that the repair is done correctly and with as little disruption as possible. We have other septic repairs scheduled today in Wrentham, Bellingham, Blackstone and Franklin MA. If you require a septic repair or have any questions please do contact our Norton office on on 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
