Septic Maintenance Should Not Be Ignored Or Postponed

Septic Preservation Services are available to provide regular septic maintenance to septic system owners. The most important septic maintenance for a septic system is regular pumping. Septic tanks must be pumped regularly to ensure they operate correctly. If the septic tank 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 gets 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 recommended 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 in Sutton, Oxford, Uxbridge, Upton, Grafton, Spencer and East Brookfield MA. If you have questions about septic pumping, septic maintenance or if you need to schedule a septic pump out please do contact our Norton Office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services where we will be happy to help you.

Septic Rejuvenation Rapidly Restores Septic Systems

Septic Preservation Services has a septic rejuvenation appointment today for a customer in Sturbridge MA. Septic Rejuvenation utilizes a patented technology to intermittently aerate the drainfield and surrounding soil. This method is used as an alternative to aerating the wastewater in the septic tank. It allows failed septic systems to rapidly rejuvenate, extending the lifespan of the drainfield and the septic system, while enhancing the treatment process. This technology has been applied in residential situations for both single and multi-family dwellings, as well as commercial situations, servicing hotels, laundromats, grocery stores, food processing facilities, healthcare services, marinas, restaurants and more.

Some of the benefits associated with Septic Rejuvenation include:

  • rapid restoration of proper septic system functions
  • lower costs for installation, operation and maintenance
  • enhanced removal of pathogens, nitrogen, phosphorus and B.O.D.
  • minimal damage/disruption to existing property landscape
  • long term, cost-effective solution

When Should You Have Your Septic System Pumped?

Septic Preservation Services are always available for property owners who need advice about their septic system. If you own a septic system it is important that it is properly maintained. The most important septic system maintenance is having your septic system pumped. How often you need to pump the solids out of your septic tank depends on factors including:

  • the number of people in your household;
  • the amount of wastewater generated (based on the number of people in the household and the amount of water used); and,
  • the volume of solids in the wastewater (e.g., using a garbage disposal will increase the amount of solids).
  • the size of your septic tank

Generally you should have your septic system pumped every 3-5 years but the above factors can dramatically change this. For example is you have, and use, a garbage disposal your system will need to be pumped annually. Today we have septic pumping scheduled in East Brookfield, Spencer, Ware, Oxford, Sturbridge and Brimfield MA. If you need a septic pump out or if you have questions about you septic system please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com

Septic Preservation Services Can Carry Out Your Septic Inspections Even In The Unlikely Event That Excavation Is Required

Septic Preservation Services not only does the heavy construction and excavation associated with the installation of septic systems but also provides continued maintenance, repair and inspection of septic systems. Today we have Title 5 septic inspections scheduled in Sturbridge, Brimfield, Brookfield, Ware, Paxton and Spencer MA. As stated on the Mas Gov website:

“The inspection includes determining the location and condition of cesspools, septic tanks and distribution boxes. Often, this will not require extensive excavation.” For more information see https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system

Therefore as stated it is not often that we are required to excavate to carry out a septic inspection but if, for any reason, that is necessary we do have the equipment, operators and skills to do so without having to wait, and pay for, for an outside contractor. You can also be confident that we will carry out all work to our own high standards because we do all of the work, even in the unlikely event that extensive excavation is required.

Providing Cesspool Services To Ensure That They Continue To Operate Correctly

Septic Preservation Services, in addition to property owners with conventional septic systems also work with many customers who have a cesspool instead. 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 cesspool are now out of date and there are more efficient and environmentally conscious alternatives Massachusetts does not 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).”

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 Bolton, Berlin, Clinton, Sterling, Paxton, Spencer and East Brookfield MA. We do also provide cesspool replacement and have recently done so in Maynard, Dennis and Berkley MA. If you have a cesspool and require services or replacement or if you have any questions please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com
