hurricane

Hurricanes and Your Septic System

hurricane

Hurricane season is upon us and severe weather could be just around the corner.  How does this affect your septic system?

Flooding and high winds can adversely affect your system.  Here are some tips to guard your system against damage.

Secure your system.

  • Check your risers or septic tank covers if they are exposed to make sure they are secure to ensure that storm water cannot get into your septic system.
  • Check  your electrical pump connections and make sure the water cannot penetrate to avoid damage during a flood
  •  It is never a good idea to park anything over your drainfield, but be  sure not to park automobiles, trailers, or other objects on the drainfield during wet weather, as this can cause damage to the drainfield pipes.

Conserve water and use it sparingly in an emergency.

  • When there is severe flooding in your area, your well water may be at risk from the sewage in standing water. Be aware of any boil-water warnings in your area and make sure you follow.
  • Have a supply of bottled water on hand to ensure you have ample supply of fresh drinking water during and after the storm.
  • Limit your water use during the storm to only essential water use. Put off laundry, dishwashing and showering as long as possible.  Fill your tub with water beforehand for use in flushing the toilet if you lose power and your well pump is not working.

It May Be Wise to have your system inspected after a flood.

  • Hurricanes can mean major flooding in your area.   You might want to have your septic system inspected for for any damage from standing water or fallen objects on the pipes.
  • Check  electrical components  to ensure there has not been any damage to your unit.

Loss of power is always an issue during the hurricane and days following depending on the severity of the storm.  This could affect your sump pump in your basement and cause flooding.  A backup generator is always a great idea to handle and pump out excess water and keep the essential systems working in your home, such as refrigeration and a well  pump to access water.

Septic Preservation Services are experts at storm damage recovery and prevention.  Call them at 877-378-4279 for all your storm related questions and anything concerning your septic system.  Visit www.septicpreservation.com

septic tank pumping

Schedule Your Septic Tank Pumping with SPS

septic tank pumping Septic Preservation Services can help you ensure that your septic system continues to operate correctly by pumping your septic tank. Septic pumping is essential every 3 – 5 years to ensure that your tank does not overflow.  As you can imagine it is not advisable to leave pumping too late late because the results can be unpleasant and expensive to fix.

The regularity that your tank needs to be pumped will vary slightly from various factors including water usage and the size of your tank.  For example, a family with 5 members, including teenagers, will typically use more water and therefore need more their tank pumped sooner, than a home of a retired couple.  However, this too can vary dramatically if that couple have extended family visiting for a prolonged period.

Essentially if you are unsure, please do call our office where we will be happy to answer any questions.  Today, we are pumping septic systems for customers in Holliston, Millis, Bellingham, Franklin, Wrentham, and Foxboro, MA.  If you need to schedule a septic pump out appointment or if you have any questions, please do contact our Norton, MA office at 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

Septic System Cleaning and Pumping

SEPTIC CLEANING & PUMPING

pump outPart of any good Preventative Maintenance Program is to ensure that your septic system is properly cleaned and is pumped on a regular basis. It is important to know the facts about septic cleaning and pumping to avoid making costly mistakes.

SEPTIC CLEANING

Getting your tanks cleaned on a regular basis will help to improve the efficiency of your septic system and keep it running smooth. It is important to select your service provider carefully to ensure that you get quality work.  Be sure that when comparing prices that you compare apples to apples.  Some differences that may effect cost are the size of the tank, how deep the covers are buried, and if there is a filter to clean.

Septic Preservation Services takes pride in the work that we do, utilizing specialized equipment to locate specific areas of your system, such as a sewer camera that is used to investigate the inside of your sewer lines, and jetting equipment to clean the pipes within the leach field.

SEPTIC PUMPING

pumpingSome pumping services will tell you that you need to get your septic system pumped every 6 months or on an annual basis. The truth is that a properly maintained septic system should only be pumped based on the accumulation of sludge and scum, which is typically every 2-5 years.  Pumping too frequently is costly and removes the “good” bacteria that keep the system running smoothly.

If you would like a system evaluation and to know how often you should be pumping, give SPS a call for an evaluation and to set up quick and easy pumping arrangements.

summer gatherings

Summer Gatherings and Your Septic System

When planning for summer gatherings this summer, prevention can go a long way toward averting disasters with your septic system.  Parties, weddings, and any summer gathering can exert heavy use on your septic system.  Careful planning can help you prepare your septic system for the extra guests and extra load.

Here are some tips:

Arrange for a septic tank pumping prior to the event. Heavy volume of wastewater over a short period of time can over saturate the drain field and cause a mess in your yard or backup in to your home. Performing septic tank maintenance right before the event will create added capacity which will be able to handle more volume.

Check  your septic system and make sure it is functioning properly before the event.  Septic Preservation Services have technicians available for a maintenance check.   A problem may not be obvious during regular or modest use, but when you add an additional volume of wastewater over a short period of time, this can cause an already impaired system to fail.

The technician can also check your drain lines and make sure they are clear as well as the flow of water from your home to the tank.  Partially clogged drain lines can fail with excessive effluent running through them in a short amount of time.

School  your guests on what not to flush down the toilet.  A nearby garbage can  and properly placed signs on dos and don’ts may be all you  need.

Better yet, for large gatherings with many guests, such as weddings, graduation parties or family reunions, consider renting portable toilets and sinks.  This will take the load off your septic system and avoid costly and odorous disasters.  Units today are more attractive and reasonable and can take the worry out of your day.

Proper preventative maintenance  is all that is needed to keep a septic system functioning properly for many years to come. When the day is done,  the cost of a little preventive maintenance is well worth  the investment to avoid the potential for backups and septic system repairs or replacement.

Call Septic Preservation Services before your summer gathering.   They have all the equipment and professionals available to maintain and check your septic system and get it ready for your big day.  You can reach them at 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com for more information.
