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.

Title 5 Inspections Taking Place In Massachusetts

Septic Preservation Services know that in winter when it snows or the weather turns icy sometimes the Title 5 Inspections that we have scheduled may not take place.

Be Aware Of The Signs That Your System Needs Septic Pumping

Septic Preservation Services know that if you have a septic system regular maintenance is essential for it to keep working correctly. Fortunately septic pumping which is the most important maintenance for a septic system is not usually required annually (unless you have a garbage disposal). It is recommended that you have your septic system pumped every 3-5 years so if it has been a few years since you have had yours done or you can’t remember when it was done last now may be a good time to consider having your system pumped or call us so we can help you determine what would be your best course of action. Signs that your septic system is due for a pump out can include:

  • Pooling water. If it hasn’t recently rained but you are still seeing pools of liquid on your leach field this could be a sign that your system is full. When your tank reaches capacity, solid waste can clog the drain field piping system and force liquid to the surface
  • Slow drains or slow flushing toilets are an indicator that your system is reaching capacity.
  • Sewage Odors or smells in your home or yard
  • An overly healthy lawn. If your grass is much greener or lusher that than the rest of your yard over the leach field you may have a tank that needs pumping
  • Septic backup

Today we are providing septic pumping for customers in Bellingham, Blackstone, Uxbridge, Upton, Holliston, Grafton and Sutton MA. If you wish to schedule septic pumping or if you are unsure whether your system needs a pump out please do contact our Norton Office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com where we will be happy to help you.

A Title 5 Inspection Is Usually Required When A Property With A Septic System Is Sold

Septic Preservation Services know that moving home at any time of the year is a stressful and time consuming business. If you are selling a home in addition to buying a home this just seems to double the workload. Therefore we try to make one small part of your move as painless as possible. If you are selling a home with a septic system in Massachusetts you are likely to need to have a Title 5 Inspection. As stated on the Mass Gov Website:

“In order to ensure that septic systems (conventional septic systems, cesspools, and innovative/alternative systems) are protective of human health and the environment, MassDEP generally requires that systems be inspected when a property is sold.

When is an inspection required?
When a property is sold to new owners, or there otherwise is a transfer of title to new owners, with certain exceptions.
Title 5 does not require a system inspection if the transfer is of residential real property, and is between the following relationships:
(1) between current spouses;
(2) between parents and their children;
(3) between full siblings; and
(4) where the grantor transfers the real property to be held in a revocable or irrevocable trust, where at least one of the designated beneficiaries is of the first degree of relationship to the grantor”.

For more information see

We have extensive experience providing septic inspections in this region for property owners. We have excellent relationships with many realtors because they have worked with us before, in some instances on multiple occasions, and know that we provide through, reliable and prompt inspections to their clients. Many of our septic inspections come from referrals from realtors to their clients. Our Inspectors have recently been to properties in Uxbridge, Lynnfield, Norton, Sutton and Rochester MA to provide a Title 5 Inspection.

Septic Inspections Including a Condominium Septic Inspection

Septic Preservation Services conduct many septic inspections throughout the year and the majority are for property owners who are selling their home or commercial property and need to have a septic inspection because they have a septic system and are not on town sewer. However there are other instances when a septic inspection is required. Today we have septic inspections in Sutton, Oxford, Uxbridge, Grafton, Sturbridge, East Brookfield and Bellingham MA including a condominium septic inspection where the property not being sold. As stated on the Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs:

“Units in a Condominium or Cooperative Corporation.  The cooperative corporation or condominium association shall be responsible for the inspection, maintenance, and upgrade of any system or systems serving the units, unless otherwise provided in the governing documents of the condominium association or the cooperative corporation.  For a facility comprised of five or more condominium or cooperative units, each system located on the facility shall be inspected at least once every three years instead of at time of transfer of title and all existing systems shall be inspected by December 1, 1996.”

Our client’s condominium building is larger than 5 units so we are inspecting their system as required by Massachusetts because it will soon be over 3 years since their last septic inspection.
