Septic Repairs Including A Sewage Grinder Pump Repair in Rochester MA

Septic Preservation Services have been called to a customer’s property in Rochester 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 sewage 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 can also provide septic upgrades and improvements such as the addition of risers, covers and effluent filters. We are also at a customer property in Middleboro MA installing a septic system cover today in addition to providing septic repairs in Norton 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 Septic Preservation Services

The Smell Of Sewage Could Indicate You Have A Septic Problem

Septic Preservation Services know that with the winter weather out of the way (we all hope) that property owners are now starting to think about the maintenance chores that have been put off until the nicer weather arrives. Septic systems always need to be maintained too and occasionally you may also have a septic problem come up and putting that off until the weather is better, or you want to deal with it, will often mean that it could become a bigger problem which is never a good thing. A small concern of septic sewage smells coming from your plumbing if addressed quickly can sometimes be easily, quickly and inexpensively fixed. However if you ignore signs of a septic problem your small issue could become a large septic failure which could be an expensive and disruptive repair. Today we are at a customer site in Holliston MA providing a simple septic repair that could have been a much bigger and more expensive issue to fix if the home owners had ignored the sewage smells coming from their system. We also have septic repairs scheduled for other customers in Millis, Southborough, Grafton, Upton, Sharon and Canton MA. If you have questions about your septic system or need to schedule a septic repair please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com

Septic Inspections Scheduled In Maine

Septic Preservation Services know that for many homes in Maine that are remote and therefore not on town sewer their property wastewater purification necessarily requires a septic system. All Septic Systems are designed specifically for their own site and have variances which make them unique but most systems are based on the same principles. A conventional septic system consists of a septic tank, a distribution box and a drainfield. Your septic system treats your household wastewater by temporarily holding it in the septic tank where heavy solids and lighter scum are allowed to separate from the wastewater. The solids stored in the tank are decomposed by bacteria and later pumped out. After partially treated wastewater leaves the tank, it flows into a distribution box, which separates this flow evenly into a network of drainfield trenches. Drainage holes at the bottom of each line allow the wastewater to drain into gravel trenches for temporary storage. This effluent then slowly seeps into the subsurface soil where it is further treated and purified. You system must be maintained and used correctly to ensure that it is doing its job correctly. A failing septic system can create many unpleasant conditions such as:

  • Hazardous sewage surfacing in yard
  • Health hazards to children and pets
  • Noxious orders over large areas
  • Polluted streams and ponds
  • Sewage back-up in buildings
  • Contaminated wells
  • Breeding areas for mosquitoes

Therefore if you are considering buying a property with a septic system, selling a property with a septic system or own a property with a septic system it is often a very good idea to have septic inspection so you can be confident in the current efficiency and condition of that system. Today we have septic inspections in Portland, Gorham, Freeport, Raymond, Pownal, Poland and Windham ME.
