Replace Your Cesspool with a Septic System

septic services Down to Earth Construction Services is replacing a cesspool for a customer in Attleboro, 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 can overload the capacity of the soil to remove bacteria, viruses, and phosphorus, and to nitrify ammonia and organic nitrogen compounds.  The owner of this property had a Septic Inspection carried out prior to selling their home and discovered that their cesspool was exhibiting signs of failure and needed to be upgraded.

They have chosen to have a septic system installed quickly to ensure that there will not be delays caused by this later in their home sale process.  Down to Earth Construction Services are installing the septic system for our client quickly and with minimum disruption.  We have excavation equipment so that we can carry out all of the work ourselves, which means that there are no delays waiting for contractor’s equipment and operators, and we can ensure that all of the work is done to our own high standards.  We know that our clients are selling their home so we will landscape and ensure that the grounds are returned to their original condition prior to our leaving the work site. We have an excellent reputation in the region and want that to continue.

If you need to replace or service a cesspool or require a septic system to be installed please do contact our Norton, MA office for more information at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Down to Earth Construction Experts at Cesspools

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services has extensive experience with not just conventional septic systems, but also with cesspools, cesspool repair, cesspool services, and cesspool replacement. As stated on the Massachusetts Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs:

 

“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.  A conventional septic system has a tank where solids can settle and begin to degrade, a distribution box, and a soil absorption system (SAS) that further treats the effluent by removing some of the bacteria, viruses, phosphorus, and nitrogen.”

 

To sell a property you usually need a Title 5 Inspection to be done, but there are exceptions and for those, check the website or call our office. Title 5 does not require that cesspools be replaced however.  The Massachusetts Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs states:

 

“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”.

Cesspool Services by Down to Earth Construction

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services have experience working with customers whose properties have cesspools. 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.  Cesspools must be treated to avoid harmful chemicals from forming and also to empty the pool.  This is the reason which makes a cesspool require a high cost of maintenance. Cesspools can also be harmful.  For example, if the cesspool is kept at a very deep level, it may come in contact with groundwater and contaminate it making it unsafe for drinking purposes. That is why cesspools are kept quite far away from the wells and underground water sources.  The cesspools may also prove to be dangerous because of the fact that the waste material may give rise to dangerous fumes.  We are starting a cesspool replacement today for a customer in Upton, MA whose cesspool failed a Title 5 Inspection because it was too close to a public water supply.  Title 5 does not require all Cesspools to be replaced but it does state that:

 

“ 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 Massachusetts.
