Septic Preservation Services know that most people would not know what all the parts of a septic system are, let alone what they do, even if they have a septic system servicing their own property. And that is perfectly normal, especially if you have a company such as Septic Preservation Services to rely upon to give you septic support when you need it. Today we have a D-Box replacement scheduled for a customer in Hingham MA. This is an essential septic repair because your D-Box is a very important part of your septic system. The D-Box is not there to support an A, B and C Box as we have been asked before. D-Box stands for ‘Distribution Box’ and does exactly what you might expect. The distribution box is a component of the leach field system. The job of the distribution box is to evenly distribute the wastewater into the leach field (also known as the drain field). How does the septic distribution box work? Gravity plays a major role in helping the distribution box do its job. The water flows downhill where the distribution box is placed. This allows the water to flow into the box from the septic tank and then onto the leach field. Once the wastewater flows out of the septic tank it will move into the septic distribution box and out to the leach field lines. The size and shape of the box depends on the type of septic tank you have. A distribution box is most commonly made out of concrete or plastic and has several openings for the leach field lines where the wastewater can flow out. The distribution box is a major part of the septic system and it being able to function properly is very important. If the distribution box isn’t working correctly you will soon be dealing with leach field failure. Distribution boxes are most often worn down by time due to weather, like flooding and freezing, and improper care of the septic system. We will be able to provide a D-box replacement for our client before it caused any lasting damage to their leach field. We also have other septic repairs scheduled today in Hingham, Norwell, Scituate, Marshfield, Hanover and Hanson MA.

Septic Preservation Services know that if a septic system is used correctly and maintained it should process your wastewater effectively and efficiently without interference. However if you neglect regular maintenance your septic system will undoubtedly stop working effectively and could eventually fail which is unpleasant and costly and either means a septic repair or even septic system replacement. Regular septic maintenance does not need to happen that often. It is generally recommended that a septic system is pumped every 3-5 years. The exact regularity of your septic pumps outs is determined by a variety of factors including your water usage and size of your tank. For example a retired couple living in a large 5 bedroom family home with occasional family visitors will not need to have their tank pumped as often as they did when they have 4 teenagers living at home. You will, however, need to have you septic system pumped annually if you use a garbage disposal. Today we have septic pumping scheduled in Norwell, Hingham, Marshfield, Scituate, Hanover, Plymouth and Halifax MA. If you require septic pumping or have any questions about septic systems or septic maintenance please do contact us at our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit https://www.septicpreservation.com
Septic Preservation Services are pleased that the majority of snow finally melted over the weekend. Although we can still carry out septic services in winter some tasks can’t be done when the ground is frozen and covered in over a foot of snow. However we know that while winter can slow a lot of things down people still need to move house and if they have a septic system in Massachusetts they are required to have a Title 5 Septic Inspection done. Thankfully the regulations acknowledge that living in New England sometimes means that the weather will play a factor in planning so it is stated on the Massachusetts Government Website that”
“If weather conditions prevent an inspection before a sale, Title 5 allows the inspection to be done up to 6 months afterwards, provided that the seller notifies the buyer in writing of the need to complete the inspection.”
For more information see: https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system
Today we have Title 5 Septic Inspections scheduled for customers in Norwell, Scituate, Hanover, Hingham, Canton and Stoughton MA. These inspections include ones that had to be rescheduled due to the severe snow we recieved a week ago.
If you require a septic inspection or have questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or or visit https://www.septicpreservation.com
Septic Preservation Services are doing a cesspool replacement for a customer in Westport MA today. A cesspool is a pit which acts as both a settling chamber for solids and a leaching system for liquids. The use of cesspools may overload the capacity of the soil to remove bacteria, viruses, and phosphorus, and to nitrify ammonia and organic nitrogen compounds. Over time, when the drainage area around the leaching pool becomes saturated, additional pools may have to be dug to handle the volume. Cesspools must be treated to avoid harmful chemicals from forming and also to empty the pool which needs to be done regularly. This makes cesspools have high maintenance costs.
In Massachusetts Title 5 does not require Cesspools to be replaced:
“only those cesspools that exhibit signs of hydraulic failure, are located extremely close to private or public water supplies, or otherwise fail to protect or pose a threat to public health, safety or the environment will need to be upgraded (310 CMR 15.303). Also, cesspools must be upgraded prior to an increase in design flow (e.g., the addition of a bedroom to a home or seats to a restaurant).” The Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs
We provide cesspool services, pump out services and cesspool replacement if requested. We have worked with customers in Otis, Norwell, Plainfield and Groveland MA recently to either replace cesspools which was required because of Title 5 or requested for financial or environmental reasons by the property owner. We have also conducted cesspool services and pumping.
If your property has a cesspool make sure that you work with a company that has extensive experience working with cesspools in Massachusetts. If you have any questions or need to arrange an appointment please do contact our Norton office on 877-348-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
