Cesspool Services Ensure That Your Cesspool Continues To Operate Correctly

Septic Preservation Services work with many customers that don’t have conventional septic systems on their property but instead have a cesspool. As stated on the Mass Gov website:

“A cesspool is a pit which acts as both a settling chamber for solids and a leaching system for liquids. The use of cesspools may overload the capacity of the soil to remove bacteria, viruses, and phosphorus, and to nitrify ammonia and organic nitrogen compounds. A conventional septic system has a tank where solids can settle and begin to degrade, a distribution box, and a soil absorption system (SAS) that further treats the effluent by removing some of the bacteria, viruses, phosphorus, and nitrogen.”

Although cesspools are now not installed because there are more efficient and environmentally conscious alternatives Massachusetts does not always require cesspools to be replaced. They state that:

“Only those cesspools that exhibit signs of hydraulic failure, are located extremely close to private or public water supplies, or otherwise fail to protect or pose a threat to public health, safety or the environment will need to be upgraded (310 CMR 15.303). Also, cesspools must be upgraded prior to an increase in design flow (e.g., the addition of a bedroom to a home or seats to a restaurant).”

For more information see the Mass Gov Website

We provide cesspool services to customers so that they can ensure that their system continues to operate correctly. Today we have cesspool services scheduled in Bellingham, Blackstone, Franklin, Sharon, Foxboro and Mansfield MA. We do also provide cesspool replacements and have recently done so recently in Rowley and Hanson MA. If you require a cesspool service or are interested in a cesspool replacement or if you have any questions about cesspools or septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Safety When Operating Equipment For A Septic Installation, Repairs and Other Work Is Our Priority

Septic Preservation Services have the equipment and training to safely carry out all of your septic installation and septic repair requirements no matter what tools are needed for the job. For example we covered covered cut off saw safety and chain saw safety in one of our recent safety meetings. These are two tools that you would not perhaps immediately associate with septic work but we do use them and therefore we take seriously the safety of our technicians and customers when they are being operated. Whether our technicians are out in the field using heavy excavators for the excavation work required for a large septic installation or in the office writing reports or producing septic designs we want our staff and customers to be safe. Today we have a septic installation starting in Sharon and initially our technicians will need to use the chainsaw to clear undergrowth back. If you require a septic installation, septic design, septic repair or any other septic work or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Title 5 Septic Inspection In Sharon For First Time Home Seller

Septic Preservation Services are providing a Title 5 Septic Inspection today to a customer in Sharon MA. This homeowner is a first time seller and needs to arrange for a septic inspection to be done on their septic system before Title transfer can take place. They have sensibly chosen to have their inspection done as soon as they decided that they wanted to sell their home. This means that the inspection will be completed without causing any delay to their future sale. Also if it does happen to highlight any problems they can have them fixed and not have to worry about this causing delays and potential loss of sales. Once they have had their inspection carried out and it passes that is just one more positive for the home that their realtor can use to sell it for a good price. They do not need to be concerned about the inspection expiring because it will be valid for 2 years as stated on the Mas Gov Website. We also have other Title 5 Septic Inspection appointments scheduled today in Franklin, Foxboro, Bellingham, Blackstone and Stoughton MA. If you require a septic inspection or if you have any questions about inspections or septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Leach Field Repair with the Installation of a White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator

Septic Preservation Services have been contacted by a property owner in Sharon MA who has a leach field problem which has been caused by it becoming clogged with the excessive amount of organic matter that has been passed to it from their septic. We will repair their leach field without needing to replace it with the installation of a White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator.

In nature, oxygen-using (aerobic) bacteria in the soil consume non-living organic material. This is the process nature uses to “recycle” wastes. We install the White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator in the septic tank to create an oxygen rich environment and cultivate an extensive colony of these same soil bacteria.

The result is nearly complete consumption of the organic materials entering the septic tank. At the same time, the bacteria are carried into the leach field where they consume the organic material that has accumulated in the underlying soil. The leach field regains and/or maintains its capacity to deliver effluent to the soil for purification.

The White Knight™ Microbial Inoculator/Generator includes:

  • An installation costs thousands of dollars less than that of a replacement leach field
  • Minimal disruption to existing landscape
  • Protection of the environment
  • Significantly longer tank pumping interval
  • Conservation of natural resources
  • 100% component and limited lifetime performance warranty

We have other septic repairs scheduled today in Norton, Mansfield, Stoughton, Canton and Foxboro MA.

If you want to have a White Knight Septic Installation, need a septic repair or if you have any questions please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

When Returning To Your ‘Normal’ Routine After Summer Break Don’t Forget Your Septic Also Requires Routine Septic Pump Out

Septic Preservation Services know that for many families things are going back to ‘normal’ with children returning to school and routines and schedules getting back on track. Strangely enough your septic system also has a routine that should be followed with it needing a regular septic pump out. Septic pumping is essential septic maintenance that you should not neglect and even if you have no signs of a septic problem your system should always be pumped, usually every 3-5 years but this does vary on a variety of factors. The following good septic maintenance practices and advice will also help ensure that you don’t need additional septic repairs or maintenance as well as your expected pumping.

Septic System Do’s and Don’ts

Things you should do

  • DO get your have septic pump out as necessary and have it checked for any cracks or leaks.
  • DO conserve water whenever possible as a means of reducing the volume of wastewater that will need to be treated and disposed.
  • DO make repairs to any faucets or toilets that are leaking.
  • DO make sure that you are only discharging biodegradable wastes into your system.
  • DO restrict or avoid use of your garbage disposal.
  • DO take the time to ensure that any down spouts or other surface water is diverted away from your drainfield.
  • DO keep the cover to your septic tank accessible by installing covers and risers for easier inspections and pumping.
  • DO have an effluent filter installed to prevent debris from entering your drainfield.
  • DO add a laundry filter to your washing machine.
  • DO put kitchen trash into a compost or throw it into the garbage – not down your drains.

Things you should NOT do

  • DON’T flush products such as tampons, sanitary napkins, condoms, disposable diapers or wipes into your system.
  • DON’T empty oils or other types of kitchen grease down your drain.
  • DON’T dump any items that can disrupt the treatment process or contaminate groundwater, such as: paints, oils, thinners, pesticides, poisons or disinfectants.

  • DON’T plant any landscaping over your drainfield – except grass.
  • DON’T drive a vehicle over your drainfield or compact the soil in ANY way.
  • DON’T run purification back flush into the septic tank.

Following the above advice will help ensure that you do not do anything that will result in needing a septic repair however it will not stop essential septic maintenance being necessary.

Septic System Installation To Start In Attleboro MA

Septic Preservation Services has to keep up with all state and town septic regulations to ensure that we can give our customers the best possible septic service. Today we are starting a septic system installation for a customer in Attleboro MA. Our customer had previously had a tight tank which is going to be replaced with a much more efficient and environmentally sound septic system. As stated on the MA Gov website https://www.mass.gov/service-details/title-5-faq

“Tight tanks are similar to septic tanks, except that they have no outlet and must be pumped out at regular intervals. Title 5 strongly discourages the use of tight tanks”

We have extensive experience of septic system installation and have recently completed installations in Foxboro, Mansfield, Sharon and Lakeville MA.

Summer Storms Are Not A Problem For Title 5 Septic Inspections

Septic Preservation Services are enjoying the summer and sunshine. However in New England summer storms are as much a part of the season as sun and sand. It is something that we are all used to and potentially stormy days like today do not stop us working. Today we have Title 5 Septic Inspections in Canton, Sharon, Stoughton, Foxboro, Millis and Franklin MA. However should a septic inspection not be able to take place the state of Massachusetts makes allowances:

“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.”

If we do find that we have to rearrange an inspection we will endeavour to find a time and date that is convenient to your timeline and schedule.

If you need to have a Title 5 Septic Inspection or if you have any questions about septic systems or septic inspections please do contact our Norton Office on 877-378-4279 or visit the Septic Preservation website.

Septic Inspections for Properties Being Sold and For Flow increases

Septic Preservation Services have Title 5 Septic Inspections for people selling their properties today in Fairhaven, New Bedford, Fall River, Mattapoisett and Marion. We also have a septic inspection today scheduled in Sharon MA because their property has had an increase in flow so an inspection was required. As stated on the Mas Gov Website :

“Changes of Use and Increases in Flow

These situations require a system inspection only if the modification requires a building permit or occupancy permit. For example:
adding a bedroom to a house
adding seats to a restaurant
changing the type of business operating at a commercial location.

Check with your Building Department or Board of Health to find out if your modification meets these requirements.

Any change in the footprint of a building also requires an inspection to determine the location of the system, to ensure that construction will not be located on top of any system components or on the reserve area. Check with your local Board of Health.”

If you require a septic inspection for any reason or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton Office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com
