Septic Preservation Services has an appointment today in Acushnet MA today to provide septic system upgrades by adding risers to a client’s septic tank in addition to a septic system effluent filter. Basic septic system upgrades can simplify maintenance, improve system function, and protect your drainfield for long-term savings. Access risers and effluent filters are two low-cost septic system upgrades for existing or new tanks that we can provide. The riser will help the owner and inspectors easily locate the tank, and they provide access for maintenance and repair. They also avoid the need to repeatedly dig up the lawn for routine inspections or pumping.The effluent filter is an inexpensive plastic filtering device that fits into the outlet end of the septic tank. The screen helps prevent solids from leaving the tank and clogging the drainfield, one of the most common causes of septic system failure. We have provided other septic system upgrades for customers in Fall River, Rochester and Norton MA. If you would be interested in septic system upgrades or if you have any questions about our septic services or septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
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
Septic Preservation Services know that doing anything outside when the temperature is not budging much above freezing is not fun. However septic systems always need to be maintained, even in cold weather, and occasionally you may have a septic problem come up and putting septic repairs off until they become a bigger problem is never a good idea. A small concern of septic smells coming from your plumbing if addressed quickly can sometimes be easily, quickly and inexpensively fixed. However if you ignore signs of a septic problem your small issue could become a large septic failure which could be an expensive and disruptive repair. Today we are helping property owners with septic repairs in Uxbridge, Upton, Sutton and Blackstone MA. If you have questions about your septic system or need to schedule a septic repair please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services where we will be happy to help you.
Septic Preservation Services have Rhode Island Septic Inspections scheduled today in Little Compton, Tiverton, Barrington, Middletown and Portsmouth. We are called by individuals who are not on town sewer so have a septic system on their property to process their wastewater. Of course these systems need to be working correctly to avoid the problems that result from a failing septic system. A failing septic system can cause a serious health threat to your family and neighbors, degrade the environment, especially lakes, streams and groundwater, reduce the value of your property, be very expensive to repair and put thousands of water supply users at risk if you live in a public water supply watershed and fail to maintain your system. Our licensed septic inspectors will provide a thorough, prompt and convenient inspection and are registered to do so in these towns. For example we have five inspectors on the Town of Portsmouth’s registered inspectors list, which is more than any other septic company.

Septic Preservation Services not only does the heavy construction and excavation associated with the installation of septic systems but also provides continued maintenance, repair and inspection of septic systems. Today we have Title 5 inspections scheduled in Seekonk, Rehoboth, Norton, Mansfield, Attleboro and Wrentham MA. As stated on the Mas Gov website:
“The inspection includes determining the location and condition of cesspools, septic tanks and distribution boxes. Often, this will not require extensive excavation.” For more information see the Mass Gov Website.
Therefore as stated it is not often that we are required to excavate to carry out a septic inspection but if, for any reason, that is necessary we do have the equipment, operators and skills to do so without having to wait, and pay for, an outside contractor. You can also be confident that we will carry out the work to our own high standards because we do all of the work, even if extensive excavation is required. If you require a Title 5 Septic Inspection or if you have any questions about septic systems or title 5 inspections please do contact us on at our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
Septic Preservation Services have OBD services and repairs scheduled in Arrowsic, Boothbay, Westport Island, Bremen, Friendship, West Bath and Richmond 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. Septic Preservation Services are the only statewide contractor on the OBD service contractor list supplied by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection. If you need to arrange OBD services or repairs please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
Septic Preservation Services not only provide the heavy equipment and expertise for the excavation and installation of septic systems but we can also produce the initial septic designs for that septic system. Today we have a septic system design meeting with a customer in Westport MA. Our client is renovating an older home which needs a new septic system. Rather than working with an old, inefficient system they have chosen to replace that system with an entirely new, efficient and cost effective septic system which we are providing the septic system design for. We have recently provided other septic designs for customers with properties in Oxford, Clinton and Holliston MA. If you require a septic design or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
Septic Preservation Services has many years experience working in Rhode Island with customers with both commercial and private properties with septic systems. Today we have appointments for Septic Functional Inspections. A Functional inspection is an inspection of a septic system that typically includes investigation of permit records, in-home plumbing evaluation and an evaluation of septic system components including flow trial and dye tracing, as appropriate. A 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. We have septic functional inspections today for customers in Hopkinton, Westerly, West Greenwich, Richmond and Exeter Rhode Island. If you require a septic inspection in Rhode Island please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services where we will be happy to help you.
Septic Preservation Services regularly carryout Title 5 Septic Inspections for property owners who are selling their property and need to have an Inspection to be carried out before Title transfer can take place. Customers are often concerned about the amount of disruption that a septic inspection will cause because if you are selling a property you understandably don’t want a large unsightly mess to be created. However as Stated on the Mass Gov website:
“The inspection includes determining the location and condition of cesspools, septic tanks and distribution boxes. Often, this will not require extensive excavation. .”
Our inspectors take care to cause as little disruption as possible, for example we will carefully remove turf and place it on a ground sheet along with any soil that is removed when inspecting your septic system. We can therefore replace the soil and turf with as little evidence of the inspection as possible left behind. We understand that although we carry out hundreds of Title 5 Septic Inspections for customers that each one needs to have the same thoroughness, care and professionalism and that is why we have such an excellent reputation in the region. Today we have Title 5 Septic Inspections in Sharon, Norton, Dighton, Berkley, Raynham and Rehoboth MA. If you require a Title 5 Inspection or if you have any questions about these inspections please do contact our Norton Office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
Septic Preservation Services know that most people are all done with the holidays and are cleaning up, putting away and taking down all of their holiday items. What many people do not think of is that their septic system may need some maintenance after the holidays too. Having your septic system pumped regularly is an essential part of septic system maintenance. Even if your septic system has been used correctly and is operating perfectly you will still always need to have it pumped, usually every 3-5 years. Although your septic system treats effluent the build up of solid waste can not be avoided and your system will need to be pumped. If you leave it too long there will be unpleasant and sometimes unsafe septic problems that could lead to a total system failure. If you have had a lot of extra guests using your home over the holiday period you may be due for septic pumping earlier than expected. We are providing septic pumping to customers today in North Smithfield, Cumberland, Lincoln, Smithfield and Burrillville RI. So if you are due for a septic pumping or if you are unsure if you need one please do contact us at our office where we will be happy to answer any questions you have and schedule an appointment if necessary on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services
