Cesspool Repacement

Septic Preservation Services Septic Preservation Services are doing a cesspool replacement for a customer in Acushnet, 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 is the reason which makes a cesspool require a high cost of maintenance.

 

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 Attleboro, Bridgewater, Raynham, Franklin, Sturbridge, Marion and Westford, MA recently to either replace cesspools which were 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 office at 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

Septic Repairs

Septic Preservation Services Septic Preservation Services have septic repairs scheduled today in Bellingham, Blackstone, Wrentham, Franklin, Holliston, Millis, Canton and Stoughton, MA.  We have experience with a vast range of septic repairs including septic pump repair, E One pump repair, leach field repair and D-Box repair We can also suggest courses of action that may prevent these repairs from being necessary again in the future. If a septic system is not used correctly, repairs and sometimes system failures can happen and often some simple changes can avoid this.  Property owners need to be aware of all the liquids and solids that are introduced into their septic system. Some of these are obviously not a good idea including clothing, toys, diapers and household objects such as scouring pads. However some may be slightly less clear, oils, fats and grease, ‘flushable’ wipes, sanitary items, and  some cleaning products.  Be careful of what you introduce to your septic system and you may avoid some costly septic system repairs, but if you do need an appointment, please do contact our office.  It is always inadvisable to wait and we can schedule appointments on short notice.

flushable wipes

Flushable Wipes

flushable wipesFlushable Wipes!  Wipes are everywhere and are the ultimate convenience.  There are baby wipes for changing diapers and general cleanups, kitchen wipes,  make-up wipes, wipes with bleach, floor wipes, pet wipes, bathroom wipes and even flushable wipes.  They make our life easier especially on the go, but should we be flushing any of these down the toilet, even the ones that claim to be flushable?

Studies have been done to test flushable wipes to see how quickly they biodegrade, and while they may break down faster than non flushable wipes, they do not break down as quickly as they should.  Wipes have the potential to plug the sewer line between the house and tank and build up at the inlet of the septic tank.

Wipes can build up in the septic tank and reduce the ability of the solids to breakdown and allow just liquid to  discharge to  leach field.  This can cause failure of the septic system.  The antibacterial agents on the wipes can also harm the helpful bacteria in your septic tank.

The best advice is to throw all the wipes, even the flushable ones in the garbage.   The only thing that should be put in your toilet is toilet paper.  One-ply is the best and trying to get everyone in the family to conserve the amount of toilet paper being used will keep your septic system running smoothly.

Keep a Watch on Septic During Wet Weather

wt weatherWhile you can’t control the weather, it’s always a good idea to keep an eye on your septic system during extremely rainy weather.  Drainfields are designed to handle your wastewater but during extremely wet weather, excess water can puddle over the the septic tank and keep water from flowing out into the soil.  A boggy drainfield is natural after heavy rains, but keep an eye for water receding and drying out after the rain is over.  Consistent bogginess and odor may mean septic problems. This is especially true for older systems.

What can you do?  Divert the rainwater away from your septic tank and drainfield through your gutters and drainspouts.   Checking your home for leaky toilets and faucets can keep less water out of your septic system.  Also reducing your water usage inside the home can help.  Shorten your showers and space out your laundry loads or try to put off doing laundry during the extremely wet weather.

Septic maintenance can also help.  Regularly maintaining your septic system and pumping on your tank on a regular basis can be the key to keeping your system healthy and running properly through any weather.  Septic Preservation Services offers a great maintenance program.  Call them with any questions or to get on a maintenance schedule at 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
