Have A Septic Inspection And Know The Condition Of Your Septic System

Septic Preservation Services know that for many homes in Maine that are remote and therefore not on town sewer their property wastewater purification necessarily requires a septic system. All septic systems are designed specifically for their own site and have variances which make them unique but most systems are based on the same principles. A conventional septic system consists of a septic tank, a distribution box and a drainfield. Your septic system treats your household wastewater by temporarily holding it in the septic tank where heavy solids and lighter scum are allowed to separate from the wastewater. The solids stored in the tank are decomposed by bacteria and later pumped out. After partially treated wastewater leaves the tank, it flows into a distribution box, which separates this flow evenly into a network of drainfield trenches. Drainage holes at the bottom of each line allow the wastewater to drain into gravel trenches for temporary storage. This effluent then slowly seeps into the subsurface soil where it is further treated and purified. Your system must be maintained and used correctly to ensure that it is doing its job correctly. A failing septic system can create many unpleasant conditions such as:

  • Hazardous sewage surfacing in yard
  • Health hazards to children and pets
  • Noxious orders over large areas
  • Polluted streams and ponds
  • Sewage back-up in buildings
  • Contaminated wells
  • Breeding areas for mosquitoes

Therefore if you are considering buying a property with a septic system, selling a property with a septic system or own a property with a septic system it is often a very good idea to have septic inspection so you can be confident in the current efficiency and condition of that system. Today we have septic inspection appointments in Hebron, Harrison, Auburn, Lewiston, North Bridgton, West Paris and Turner ME. If you need to schedule a septic inspection in Maine or if you have any questions about septic inspections or septic systems please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Maine DEP Requires All OBD Treatment Plants Must Be On A Service Contract

Septic Preservation Services have overboard discharge (OBD) services and OBD repairs scheduled today in Harrison, Hebron, Bridgton, Lewiston, West Paris, Turn and Auburn Maine. The Maine DEP’s Overboard Discharge (OBD) Program is responsible for regulating discharges of sanitary and household wastewater generated at residential or commercial locations to streams, rivers, bays, and the ocean. All OBDs must be approved by the DEP through a licensing process. DEP rule requires all mechanical OBD treatment systems to have an operating alarm system; to maintain a current service contract with a licensed service contractor; and to attach a service tag on or near the treatment system that provides the service contractor’s name and the last date of service. All mechanical systems require power, so be sure that power is supplied to the unit and that it is turned on 7 days a week during the season of use. For more information see: http://www.maine.gov/dep/water/wd/OBD/index.html Septic Preservation Services are the only statewide contractor on the OBD service contractor list supplied by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection.
