To Avoid A Septic Problem Be Aware Of What Should Not Be Flushed

Down to Earth Construction Services provide advice to their customers to ensure that they use their septic systems correctly and are therefore less likely to have a septic system problem. It is important to take good care of your septic system so you should know which items should never be flushed down the drain or toilet. This is because these things can overtax or destroy the biological digestion taking place within the system or clog pumps and pipes which will result in a septic problem.

Take care not to flush the following:

  • hair combings, dental floss, gauze bandages or disposable diapers
  • sanitary napkins, tampons, cigarette butts, or condoms
  • fat, grease or oil, coffee grounds, paper towels or cat litter
  • chemicals that could contaminate surface and groundwater, such as paints, varnishes thinners, waste oils, photographic solutions, or pesticides

Unfortunately we have attended many septic repairs that could have been avoided if this advice had been followed. Today we have septic repair appointments in Dighton, Rochester, Rehoboth, Berkley, Lakeville and Middleboro MA. If you require a septic repair, think you may have a septic problem or if you have any questions please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit http://www.downtoearthconst.com

Primary Reasons For Leach Field Failure are Biological Clogging and Mechanical Failure

Down to Earth Construction Services have been contacted by a client in Berkley MA who suspects that they have a leach field problem. They have noticed a sewage smell in their yard around the leach field area and there is a consistent wet, sogginess on the field. Other signs that you may have a problem can include lush vegetation over the leach field, frequent pumping of the tank being required, and/or slow drains.

Leach fields fail for two primary reasons. The main reason is referred to as biological clogging. This is the development of a biomat beneath the leachfield that eventually prevents the liquid or effluent from entering the underlying soil. This biomat is a combination of fine organic solids that have been carried out of the septic tank and the remnants of anaerobic bacteria. These bacteria originate in the human intestinal tract and enter the septic system with the waste products. 95% of all leach field failures are biological. The second primary reason is referred to as a mechanical failure. This could be a structural collapse of the leach field piping or chambers, root intrusion, or fine non-organic materials that are washed down to the bottom of the leach field and seal the soil.

Down to Earth Construction Services have many years experience identifying and repairing leach field problems and will find locate and solve our client’s leach field problem. We have other septic repair appointments today in Dighton, Raynham, Rehoboth and Lakeville MA.

If Your Property Is Not On Town Sewer A Septic Service Could Take Your Septic Maintenance Concerns Away

Down to Earth Construction Services know that many people when they hear the word ‘sewer’ either think of old, large, dank, dark and smelly sewer systems under some city in Europe or adolescent turtles with unlikely names fighting bad guys through the sewer tunnel system. Neither image is particularly accurate for sewer systems in Massachusetts which service many homes across the state. However homes and properties that are not on the town sewer system still need to process their wastewater and the solution is an individual septic system. If you buy a property with a septic system and have never had one before this can be a daunting prospect. However septic services provided by Down to Earth Construction Services are designed to give homeowners peace of mind because you then know that your system is being properly checked, maintained and monitored. This means that you do not have to worry about unexpected repairs or maintenance because we will take care of your septic system for you so repairs are much less likely to be necessary and problems will be located before they become a big concern. We schedule septic services for our customers on maintenance contracts on a quarterly, biannual or annual basis depending on their septic system and the use that it gets. Today we have septic service appointments in Dighton, Taunton, Berkley, Middleboro and Norton MA. If you would be interested in septic services or if you have questions please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit http://www.downtoearthconst.com

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
