Preventative Maintenance, Not First Of The Month Luck, Will Extend The Life Of Your Septic System

Septic Preservation Services give you a pinch and a punch for the first of the month. We know, however, that good luck alone will not extend the life of your septic system but proper preventative maintenance can. Septic systems that are not regularly maintained will average less than 20 years, but studies conducted by field professors, scientists and engineers reveal that proper preventative maintenance can help a septic system to last indefinitely. This can save homeowners thousands of dollars over a lifetime.

Our septic services give our residential and commercial clients peace of mind in knowing that their septic system is being maintained, checked and monitored. Today we have septic services for customers in Marion, Mattapoisett, New Bedford, Westport, Fairhaven and Acushnet MA.

We provide our customers with regular monitoring of the entire septic system. We service septic systems in a quarterly, biannual or annual basis depending on the septic system and the needs of our client. For example a busy restaurant’s septic system will require more regular services that a small home belonging to a retired couple. Once an appointment has been scheduled our customers do not even usually need to be home for the service which makes septic system maintenance as hassle free as possible. If you would be interested in a septic service or if you have any questions about septic systems or preventative maintenance please contact us on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic System Upgrades For A Customer in Acushnet, MA

Septic Preservation Services has an appointment today in Acushnet MA today to provide septic system upgrades by adding risers to a client’s septic tank in addition to a septic system effluent filter. Basic septic system upgrades can simplify maintenance, improve system function, and protect your drainfield for long-term savings. Access risers and effluent filters are two low-cost septic system upgrades for existing or new tanks that we can provide. The riser will help the owner and inspectors easily locate the tank, and they provide access for maintenance and repair. They also avoid the need to repeatedly dig up the lawn for routine inspections or pumping.The effluent filter is an inexpensive plastic filtering device that fits into the outlet end of the septic tank. The screen helps prevent solids from leaving the tank and clogging the drainfield, one of the most common causes of septic system failure. We have provided other septic system upgrades for customers in Fall River, Rochester and Norton MA. If you would be interested in septic system upgrades or if you have any questions about our septic services or septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

New England Weather Does Not Stop Us Providing Septic Services

Septic Preservation Services knows that we are certainly in the grips of winter here in New England and snow and ice are always a possibility in December. That is not to say that we close when it gets cold out. We still provide our septic services to our customers even in the winter time! Today we have septic repairs and septic upgrades scheduled for customers in Lakeville, Acushnet and Rehoboth MA. We are also adding a riser to the outlet of a septic tank for a customer in Rochester MA. Adding risers, covers and filters to your septic system will improve its effectiveness. When your septic system is more accessible, it is also much safer and more attractive. These goals can be achieved through the use of strong, durable risers and system covers. Once installed, homeowners are able to provide easy access to the system for future septic repairs, septic upgrades or cleaning services, eliminating the need to dig and excavate the system each time it needs to be pumped. Another septic upgrade we can provide to customers is the addition of a effluent filter. Engineers, scientists and educators in the septic industry suggest that property owners install an effluent filter in the outlet tee of their septic tank to extend the life of their system. Coupled with a regular maintenance program, such as Septic Preservation Services’ Preventative Maintenance Program, and professional pumping, your septic system could actually last indefinitely. Due to the high cost associated with replacing a septic system, these seemingly small upgrades to your system will pay off in a big way. If you would be interested in septic system upgrades or if you need a septic repair or other septic services or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic Repair in Acushnet MA

Septic Preservation Services have a septic repair scheduled today for a customer in Acushnet MA. We are replacing their distribution Box (D-Box). A D-Box is exactly as it sounds it’s a box that moves, or distributes treated wastewater from your septic tank into your leach field or drain field. It must be level and installed correctly or your watewater will not distribute evenly across your leach field and this can lead to over saturation and clogging which is not desirable. The d-box we are replacing was damaged when heavy equipment was mistakenly parked on top of it which broke and moved it. We have found that many property owners with septic systems while they know they have a septic tank sometimes forget that the leachfield and d-box are also essential parts of their septic system and must also be maintained. Here are a few simple tips to help you look after all parts of your septic system:

  • Minimize the use of the garbage disposal
  • Do not put grease down your drains
  • Spread loads of laundry out over time rather than doing multiple loads in a short period of time, and use liquid detergents rather than powdered detergents
  • Avoid excessively long showers
  • Avoid leaving tap water running when shaving, brushing teeth or doing other personal or household tasks
  • Do not flush medications, harmful chemicals, excessive amounts of bleach, harsh drain cleaners or degreasers
  • Have the septic tank pumped at least every three years
  • Do not add any septic systems cleaners, enzymes or additives
  • Remove water conditioning backwash discharges from the septic system
  • Do not plant trees and shrubs over leach fields
  • Do not flush personal products, paper towels, wipes or diapers
  • Do not clean or rinse paint brushes in the sinks
  • Equip all hot tubs, spas, whirlpool baths, etcetera with drain limiting valves that will only allow five gallons per minute to drain from fixture
  • Do not drive vehicles over leach fields

We also have septic repairs scheduled in Norton, Stoughton, Canton and Taunton MA and some of these repairs could have been avoided by following the above advice. If you have any questions about your septic system or if you need a septic repair please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic Design For A Client in Acushnet MA

Septic Preservation Services were contacted by a client with a property in Acushnet MA which they are planning to sell but it has failed its Title 5 Septic Inspection. The homeowner was not required to have their entire septic system replaced but have chosen to do so to better enable them to sell their property quickly and at a higher price. We are providing the initial septic design after consultation to determine the needs of our client and a PERC Test which has given us the information that we require, in addition to our extensive knowledge of the local and state septic regulations. With this information we are able to provide a septic system design for our clients which will exceed their septic requirements while meeting all septic standards set by the state and town and being environmentally conscious. We have recently provided other septic system designs to clients in Rochester, Sharon, Orange and Boxborough MA. If you require a septic design or if you have any questions about septic designs or septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
