Septic Functional Inspections Happening Today In Rhode Island

Septic Preservation Services has Septic Functional Inspections scheduled today in Coventry, North Kingstown, Exeter, Cranston, Johnston and Scituate RI.

As stated in the Rhode Island Handbook for Inspection:

“Approximately 150,000 Rhode Island households, or one third of the state’s population, use some form of septic system for sewage disposal. Rhode Island’s septic systems discharge some seven billion gallons of wastewater into the ground each year. When used properly, septic systems function very well. If mismanaged, however, these systems will fail, creating conditions that may threaten human health and the environment. Untreated effluent from malfunctioning septic systems may reveal itself by sight and smell, when a system backs up, or it may quietly percolate through the soil into the groundwater and adjacent water bodies.”

Therefore it is always advisable to have septic systems inspected, especially if you are buying a home with a septic system. A functional inspection is used to determine whether a system is adequate to serve the wastewater disposal needs of the household. The septic 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.

Fall Planting Can Result in a Leach Field Repair Being Necessary

Septic Preservation Services know that in the fall many people are out raking leaves, pruning and generally getting their yards ready for winter. What most non gardeners do not realize is that for many tree varieties late August, September and October are also the best months to plant them. In fall, the tree can make new roots without having to feed the leaves. Water requirements are much lower without the leaves on the tree. To us it feels cool in fall, but that is actually the best temperature for root growth. Roots grow best in cool soil. A fall planting allows the tree to grow roots in fall and again early spring before leaves develop. This gives the tree a good chance to lay down a good set of roots before they need to collect water and nutrients for the leaves. Unfortunately when you are planting large shrubs or trees in your yard if you do so on your leach field you can unknowingly create a septic problem. The roots and sometimes weight of plants can actually damage your drain field which means that your septic system is no longer working correctly and you may need a leach field repair. Septic systems do an amazing job of returning liquids to the soil for purification but the whole system needs to be functioning correctly for this to happen. When septic system failure occurs, the conditions they create are dangerous. These can include:

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

Today we are at a customer’s home in Portsmouth RI proving a leach field repair which has been damaged when they planed an orchard over it last year. The roots combined with heavy machinery being parked on to of the drainfield during construction have both lead to structural collapse of the leach field piping. A strong sewage odor and dampness over their yard was luckily a sign of a septic problem that the homeowners did not ignore. We can repair the damage so they do not have to worry about the consequences of an inoperative septic system. We also have other septic repairs scheduled today in North Kingstown, Jamestown, Narragansett, Exeter and Richmond RI. If you require a septic repair or leach field repair if you have any questions about septic systems please do call us at our office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
