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
Septic Preservation Services has an appointment today for a customer in Norton MA who needs a septic repair because their D-Box (distribution box) is not operating correctly. A D-Box is an essential component of a conventional septic system. As the name suggests it ‘distributes’ in this case wastewater from the septic tank which has already partially treated the wastewater into the leach field. A septic system consists a septic tank and a drainfield which are connected through the D-Box. Wastewater flows from your property to the septic tank. The septic tank treats the wastewater by holding it in the tank long enough for solids and liquids to separate. The wastewater forms three layers inside the tank. Solids lighter than water (such as greases and oils) float to the top forming a layer of scum. Solids heavier than water settle at the bottom of the tank forming a layer of sludge. This leaves a middle layer of partially clarified wastewater. The layers of sludge and scum remain in the septic tank where bacteria work to break the solids down. The sludge and scum that cannot be broken down are retained in the septic tank until the tank is pumped. The layer of clarified liquid flows from the septic tank to the drainfield via the D-Box which uniformly distributes the wastewater into the drainfield. A standard drain field (also known as a leach field, disposal field, or a soil absorption system) is a series of trenches or a bed lined with gravel or course sand and buried one to three feet below the ground surface. Perforated pipes or drain tiles run through the trenches to distribute the wastewater. The drainfield treats the wastewater by allowing it to slowly trickle from the pipes out into the gravel and down through the soil. The gravel and soil act as biological filters. Clearly it is essential that all components of the septic system are working correctly for it to process your waste. We will ensure that the D-Box is either repaired or replaced so our customer can be confident that their system is working efficiently. We have other septic repair appointments today in Berlin, Bolton, Clinton, Sterling and Northborough MA.

Septic Preservation Services have been working with Rhode Island property owners for over 20 years providing septic inspections, septic repairs, septic maintenance including septic pumping and septic cleaning and septic designs. With one third of the state’s households using some form of septic system for sewage disposal there are a lot of septic systems that require attention. If you have never had a property with a septic system the prospect can be daunting but with minimal maintenance and some guidelines a septic system will happily do its job with minimal interference. However if you are purchasing a property with a septic system you do want to ensure that the necessary maintenance has taken place so the system is working correctly because a failing system is a large environmental, economical and logistical problem. Therefore Functional Inspections were devised which are:
‘used to determine whether a system is adequate to serve the wastewater disposal needs of the household. The functional inspection is especially intended for use during a property transfer as a means to protect the consumer and identify systems in need of upgrade or repair.”
We carry out these inspections for customers who are buying or selling property, both residential and commercial, and need to have an inspection to highlight the condition of their septic system. Today we have functional inspections scheduled in Portsmouth, Little Compton, Middletown, Barrington and Tiverton RI. If you require a septic inspection in Rhode Island or if you have any questions about septic inspections please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
Septic Preservation Services are experienced working with septic systems and because we have extensive knowledge of septic systems we can use this to diagnose septic problems, to find the source of the issue and to carry out a septic repair, when required. Today we are installing a septic alarm for a customer in Hingham MA who wants to have this safeguard in place to notify them if they have a septic issue that needs to be addressed. This septic alarm is required because their septic system has a septic pump which moves wastewater from the septic tank to the drain field or leach field. If the septic pump is not operating correctly the septic alarm will turn on. We also have an appointment for a customer in Westport MA who has noticed that their septic alarm is on and they need a septic specialist to locate the problem and fix their septic system. We have extensive experience repairing and replacing septic pumps including Blue Diamond, Hiblow and FujiClean pumps. If you require a septic repair, septic improvement or have any questions about your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
Septic Preservation Services know that doing anything outside when the temperature is not budging much above freezing is not fun. However septic systems always need to be maintained, even in cold weather, and occasionally you may have a septic problem come up and putting septic repairs off until they become a bigger problem is never a good idea. A small concern of septic 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 helping property owners with septic repairs in Uxbridge, Upton, Sutton and Blackstone 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 Septic Preservation Services where we will be happy to help you.
Septic Preservation Services has many years of experience working in the septic industry in this region. This means that we can use our accumulated knowledge and the skills that we have developed to repair the septic problems that our customers have. What is sometimes even more important is that we can locate the cause of the issue and this sometimes means that we have to educate septic system owners in the best way to use their system to prevent septic problems happening in the future. For example today we have been to a customer property in Westport MA and the mistake that they were making is that they were putting too much water into their system. The decomposition process can become strained if there is too much excess water in the septic system, resulting in a variety of problems. Ideally, septic owners should only be using a maximum of 50 gallons of water per day, per person. The following averages for common household activities can help you keep track:
Dishwasher Cycle – 7 gallons
Washing Machine – 40 gallons per load (less with front-loader machines)
Toilet – 2 gallons per flush, 1.6 gallons for newer standard toilets
Shower – 2.5 gallons per minute (a 10 minute shower = 25 gallons)
It can be difficult to stay on top of usage, particularly for large families, but laying down some basic guidelines can help everyone to work together. New environmentally-friendly appliances, toilets and shower heads can help reduce usage without a lot of extra effort. Trying to spread laundry loads out over a week rather than doing it all on one day helps and not running many water using appliances all at once. A water meter can be helpful for households that feed off of a well. The Energy Star website also has a lot of helpful ideas and tips for reducing water usage. It is always a good idea to remember that a septic system is installed based upon the number of people that are anticipated to be using it. If your base number increases, you might need to upgrade to a larger system. We have other septic repairs scheduled today in Marion, Mattapoisett, Fall River and Fairhaven MA.

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 inspections scheduled in Seekonk, Rehoboth, Norton, Mansfield, Attleboro and Wrentham 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 the Mass Gov Website.
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, an outside contractor. You can also be confident that we will carry out the work to our own high standards because we do all of the work, even if extensive excavation is required. If you require a Title 5 Septic Inspection or if you have any questions about septic systems or title 5 inspections please do contact us on at our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
Septic Preservation Services know that even though it is only January 2nd it suddenly feels like the holidays were a long time ago and we are all getting back into the swing of things. This means that property maintenance that you have perhaps been putting off over the holiday period should now be looked at and not postponed anymore. Septic System Maintenance is really not something that should be put off for too long because if left it can lead to large and expensive repair being necessary or even a septic failure. The most important septic system maintenance is septic pumping. The average recommended pumping frequency is between 3 and 5 years, depending on the tank size and number of occupants. The longer you wait between pumping the greater the likelihood that you may have a septic problem and you will shorten the lifespan of your system and eventually it will fail. As wastewater enters your septic tank from your property, the solid matter will be held in the tank and break down into “sludge” over time, while the liquids continue on to the absorption area (leach field / drain field). Sludge is never meant to exit your septic tank, so it must be pumped out on a regular basis — you don’t want the sludge to accumulate to the point where it starts exiting the tank towards the absorption area or backing up into your property.
Once this happens pumping will not rectify the issue and you will be looking at additional costs to repair your system and if left too long you may have to replace your septic system or at least parts of it which is both expensive and disruptive. We have septic pumping scheduled today for customers who are choosing to keep on top of their septic system maintenance in Rowley, Boxford, Groveland, Peabody, Lynnfield and North Reading MA. If you require septic pumping or if you are not sure if it is time or if you have any questions please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
