Septic Cleaning Will Improve The Efficiency Of Your Septic System And Keep It Running Smoothly

Septic Preservation Services know that when you are thinking about your septic system (if you are ever thinking about your septic system) one word that is unlikely to be the first or even the tenth is ‘clean’. However Septic Preservation Services can provide septic cleaning for your septic system and for a very good reason. If you have a septic system it must be pumped regularly, generally every 2-5 years. There is no getting around it, if a septic system is used it will eventually fill up and must be pumped to work correctly. However when you have your septic system pumped you are not necessarily having it ‘cleaned’ and a thorough septic cleaning can make a big difference to your system. Getting your tanks cleaned on a regular basis will help to improve the efficiency of your septic system and keep it running smoothly. Quick service pumping companies may seem cheaper but will actually cost property owners down the road because they are not cleaning while they pump. Septic Preservation Services takes pride in the work that we do, utilizing specialized miniature equipment to locate specific areas of your system, such as a sewer cam that is used to investigate the inside of your sewer lines, and jetting equipment to clean the pipes within the leach field. Today we have septic cleaning scheduled in Hudson, Stow, Maynard, Acton, Boxborough, Carlisle and Wayland MA. If you would be interested in septic cleaning and septic pumping or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Voluntary Septic Assessment Carried out Today in Sharon, MA

Septic Preservation Services has Septic Inspections scheduled today in Clinton, Bolton, Berlin, Stow, Hudson, Marlborough and Maynard MA. If you have a septic system it is required in Massachusetts that you have your septic inspected:

  • Within 2 years before a sale. If weather conditions prevent inspection at the time of a sale, the inspection must take place within 6 months afterward.
  • When there is a proposed change to the facility which requires a building or occupancy permit.
  • Any change in the footprint of a building, to make sure that new building construction will not take place on top of any system components or on the system’s reserve area.
  • For large systems with a design flow of 10,000 to 15,000 gallons per day or more at full build-out, on the basin schedule shown in 310 CMR 15.301(6), and every five years thereafter.
  • Every 3 years for shared systems.
  • When the property is divided, or ownership of 2 or more properties is combined.
  • When MassDEP or the local Board of Health orders an inspection

For more information see https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system

Most of the inspections that we carry out for property owners are for people who are selling their property and need their septic to be inspected before Title transfer can take place. However what some people do not realize is that we can also carry out a septic assessment. A Property owner can hire a licensed inspector to perform Confidential Voluntary Septic Assessment of their septic system. These assessments are completed just as they would be according to the Title 5 Inspections required by the State of Massachusetts, but the findings are NOT reported to any other person, municipality or office outside of the homeowner. Once the assessment is complete, the homeowner will receive a thorough report along with an assessment of the findings and some recommendations on how to properly maintain or repair their septic system, if necessary. The recommendations provided by Septic Preservation Services are designed to increase longevity and prevent future issues, such as property damage, high cost repairs or system replacement.

In addition to the above septic inspections we also have a voluntary septic assessment scheduled for a customer today in Sharon MA.

If you require a septic inspection or voluntary septic system assessment please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com where we will be happy to help you.

Cold Weather Creates Its Own Set Of Septic Problems

Septic Preservation Services know that septic problems arise whatever the weather is. However cold weather brings its own set of problems for example:

  • If you have a ‘summer home’ or go away and leave your property for periods of time or just use it part of the week wastewater does not enter the system regularly enough and can freeze
  • If you drive over your septic leach field or drainfield you compact your soil. Compacted soil freezes more easily which can result in damaged parts and possible a failing septic system. If it is snowy and you drive over the snow on your system the snow will then provide less insulation for your septic system than snow which has been left untouched
  • If you don’t have enough vegetative cover over your septic system you have less insulation from the cold
  • Leaks in your plumbing release water into the septic which can then freeze
  • Poor pipe drainage can be caused by deteriorated pipes, if they are full or back filled with soil or poorly installed. Liquid will pool on one side and can then freeze

Essentially the cold can lead to your septic system freezing which leads to problems, possible repairs and even septic failures. Ironically snow falling is a good thing. Fresh snow is an excellent insulator. As it gets compacted it becomes less effective but it is better than a complete lack of snow cover, dry soil conditions or very cold air temperatures for an extended period of time which will all contribute to septic problems. Today we have appointments in Hudson, Stow, Boxborough, Acton, Ayer, Carlisle and North Reading MA for septic repairs, some of which are caused by septic system owners not planning for the cold weather.

septic system services

Schedule Your Septic System Services

septic system services Septic Preservation Services has septic service appointments today for customers in Bolton, Berlin, Northborough, Clinton, Sterling, Stow, and Maynard, MA.  We take away the responsibility of maintenance of a septic system from our customers.  Lets be honest, there are very few people out there who want to maintain or service their septic system, and if there is a cost effective, quality, septic company available that will do it for you, many people, including our customers, will happily relinquish all responsibility to a qualified and trustworthy alternative.  

We service our customers’ septic systems on a quarterly, biannual, or annual basis, depending on their system and the property it services.  A busy restaurant’s septic system will need more regular septic services than a 2 bedroom single family home, for example.  We service septic systems for small cottages up to large condo association systems. If you would be interested in septic system services or if you have any questions, please do contact our Norton, MA office at 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
