Down to Earth Construction Services Are Available For Your Septic Needs Over The Holidays

Down to Earth Construction Services are looking forward to the upcoming holidays. Holidays usually mean good food and spending time with friends and family. However if you are hosting large gatherings it is a good idea to consider your septic system’s limitations when you plan a large event at your home. We have one customer who has a small property with a correspondingly small septic system. However they regularly host large gatherings of friends and family which puts a huge strain on their septic system. They have found that it is more cost effective to hire portable toilets for their events than to have their septic system pumped much more regularly due to the excessive use it gets when more people are using the system. This also reduces the likelihood of associated repairs and failures caused by a septic system that has not been pumped when required. If you are planning a large Christmas Party this holiday season at home or have a lot of extra guests staying at your home for an extended period of time consider your septic system. Sometimes it is worth getting portable toilets in for your party but if you do not make sure you know when your system was last pumped and consider having another pump out after the holidays. Also spread washing loads out over a week rather than doing multiple loads of laundry in one day which can also overload your septic. If you are unsure we are always happy to discuss your concerns. If you do have a septic problem arise we are working over the holidays so please do contact us if you have questions or need to schedule an appointment. Today we have septic repair appointments in Lakeville, Freetown, Rochester and Berkley MA. If you wish to schedule an appointment or if you have any questions regarding your septic system you can reach us at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

 

 

A Distribution Box Regulates The Dispersion Of Effluent To The Drain Field

Down to Earth Construction Services have extensive experience working within the field of septic systems. We are often contacted by property owners who need a specific engineering repair and have therefore chosen to contact Down to Earth Construction Services because we have the expertise to replace, repair or upgrade a septic system in a timely manner at a cost effective price. Today we have a D-Box or Distribution Box replacement for a customer in Freetown MA. A conventional septic system is composed of the septic tank and the drain field. The drain field is where the last stage of wastewater treatment system takes place. It is the area of effluent purification and distribution. An essential part of the drain field is the distribution box. The distribution box or d-box regulates the dispersion of effluent. To operate correctly a d-box must be properly installed a remain unglogged and level. If the d-box is tilted or clogged, it will only distribute the effluent on one part of the drain field which it will eventually result in the bursting out or overloading of the effluent onto the surface of the yard. This, as you can imagine, can have unpleasant results including sewage smells and puddling of waste in your yard. We have other septic repairs taking place today in Berkley, Mattapoisett and Marion MA. If you require a septic repair or if you have questions about septic systems please do contact our office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

It Benefits Your Property Sale To Have Your Septic Inspection Done Early

Down to Earth Construction Services are contacted by property owners in this region to conduct septic inspections because we have qualified inspectors who can carry out septic inspections on your schedule.

Septic inspections are often required because a property is being sold with a septic system and it is necessary to have one when a property is sold, divided or combined. We recommend that if you are going to sell a property with a septic system that you have the septic inspection conducted early in your sale process. If it highlights problems with your system you have time to have it fixed, if you choose to do so, without it impacting your sale timeline. If you pass with no problems that is just another positive selling point for your property. It is worth noting that if your septic system fails its inspection the owner or operator of the system is the legally responsible party required to upgrade the failing system. Prior to transfer of the property, this is typically the seller. Often, the buyer and seller work out the financial issues as part of the sale of the property. Title 5 does not require that a system be in passing condition prior to the sale, but most lenders will not issue a mortgage until the failing system is upgraded or funds to perform the upgrade are escrowed. Inspections required in connection with a property transfer generally are good for two years. If a property is sold more than once in the two-year period, the single inspection is valid for all transfers. When a system is pumped on an annual basis and the pumping records are available, an inspection is valid for three years. Therefore there really is no benefit in delaying having your inspection done if you are selling your property.

Today we have septic inspections in Attleboro, Norton, Berkley, Dighton, Acushnet and Swansea MA. If you wish to schedule a septic inspection or if you have any questions about septic inspections please do contact our Norton office at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
