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 are providing a septic system design for a customer in Attleboro MA. 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. We have many years experience working in this region and know not only the state septic requirements but also those of the individual towns that we work in. Therefore we can help prevent delays for our customers which often happens if a septic design is not correct or doesn’t follow town BOH regulations. We have recently provided septic designs for customers in Berlin, Lakeville, Upton and Norton MA. If you need a septic system design or if you have septic questions please do contact our office in 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
Septic Preservation Services are installing a septic alarm for a customer in Hingham, MA today. Many modern and alternative septic systems have alarms to notify the homeowner of a potential problem. Though it can be annoying when the system alarms and you are forced to think about your septic system, this could prevent the system from backing up into your house. A high water alarm is caused by either too much water going into the tank or not enough going out. A high water alarm if not properly addressed will cause septic waste to ultimately back up into your house, though that may occur after your drainfield is fully damaged. An alarm could also be to notify you that your septic pump has failed. The basic design of a septic tank will only work if the sludge is not too thick on the bottom and the grease and scum is not too thick on top, and if the flow to the tank is not excessive. If there is too much waste on the bottom of the tank or too much water flowing to the tank, there will not be enough time for the solids and liquids to settle out before the tank starts releasing water containing large amounts of fecal waste to the drain field. The fecal waste will over time clog the drainfield. Also, if there is too much grease and scum floating on top, the scum will be released to the drainfield. A septic system is not a trash can. Don’t put dental floss, feminine hygiene products, condoms, diapers, cotton swabs, cigarette butts, coffee grounds, cat litter, paper towels, latex paint, pesticides, or other hazardous chemicals into your system because they can end up clogging the filter and/or lines if carried from the tank. Therefore, although it can be annoying, a septic alarm is essential to give you advance warning that you have a septic problem. Our customer has wisely chosen to install a septic alarm to ensure that they have advance warning of a septic problem. We have provided other septic system improvements including the addition of risers and covers to customers in Norton, Attleboro, Lakeville and Bridgewater recently. If you would be interested in having a septic alarm installed, if you have a septic alarm going off or would be interested in other septic system improvements please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation 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

We service both residential and commercial septic systems for our customers so they do not need to concern themselves with their septic system. This is especially important for our commercial customers who will often lose revenue if their septic system is down.

We also provide septic education to our customers, when necessary, because if we notice there is a potential problem building up we can educate our customers to change their behavior which can sometimes prevent a septic problem. For example if a customer is using a lot of non septic safe detergent that can adversely affect the balance of bacteria that is necessary in your septic tank to break down your waste. If we notice that this imbalance is happening early enough a change in detergent can fix this issue and, if necessary, we can introduce an additive to repair any damage that has been done.
