Septic Repair In Lakeville MA Including A Septic Pump Repair

Down to Earth Construction Services are attending a septic repair today for a residential customer located in Lakeville MA. Our customer noticed sewage smells coming from their septic tank and wisely chose to contact us to investigate further. The source of this problem was a faulty pump, which failed to keep up with the waste entering the system so the tank was getting too full which allowed gases to escape. We can actually provide a septic pump repair in this instance and save the customer from needing to replace the entire pump. We have in stock many septic pumps from different manufacturers including Blue Diamond, FujiClean and HiBlow and their rebuild kits so we can carry out repairs in many instances without having to wait to order in parts. We also have other septic repair appointments scheduled today in Rochester, Middleboro, Carver and Freetown MA. If you require a septic repair or if you have any questions about your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit Down to Earth Construction Services


Septic Repairs To Correct Large and Small Septic Problems

This includes contacting Dig Safe, a nonprofit organization that will notify your utility company of our plans. Your utility company (s) will then mark its underground facilities so we can be sure to safely conduct your septic repairs.

Be Aware Of Signs That You Have A Septic Problem

Down to Earth Construction Services are always here to help homeowners if they have a septic problem. However you need to be aware that you have a septic issue before you know that you need someone to come and fix it.

 

Some signs of a septic problem are:

 

  • Muddy soil or pools of wastewater around your septic tank or soil absorption system.

  • Very green or lush grass a vegetation on your leach field or near your septic tank.

  • Sewage smells around your system or inside your house.

  • Backups when you do laundry, take showers, or flush the toilet.


If you see these signs it is never a good idea to wait to have them looked at. A small septic concern with an easy and inexpensive repair can become a much larger, more expensive and more disruptive problem if left unaddressed. We have extensive experience locating and repairing septic problems. We have septic repairs scheduled today in Acushnet, Freetown, Lakeville, Norton and Rochester MA. If you need a septic repair or if you have any questions about your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit http://downtoearthconst.com/septic-services/

Septic Repair On A Leach Field In Acushnet MA

Down to Earth Construction Services have a septic repair appointment today in Acushnet MA. Unfortunately when the property owner noticed a wet patch in their yard they added more soil to the patch in the hope that this would fix the problem. This fix only temporarily covered up their septic problem and the wet patch returned and they contacted us when they also noticed a pronounced sewage odor in the area. We were able to determine that a new gutter in addition to a newly paved driveway was resulting in additional water being diverted to the soil absorption field area which put an extra load on the system. When their soil was saturated with clean water, even seasonally, it could not accept any more wastewater. The untreated wastewater was therefore rising to the surface. We were able to improve surface and subsurface drainage by diverting all surface and groundwater away from the soil absorption field. The soil could absorb all the wastewater from the property. We have other septic repair appointments today in Rochester, Freetown, Taunton, Norton, Dighton and Lakeville MA.

Septic Services Can Take The Worry From Septic System Maintenance

Down to Earth Construction Services know that many people who own a vehicle will schedule a service for their car when the service indicators come on or carry out their car maintenance themselves. As car owners we accept that maintaining our car is going to cost money but we use our vehicles daily so they need to be well maintained. The same is true for your septic system. There aren’t many properties that do not see their septic systems used daily. However a septic system is not the same as your car and many property owners turn to professionals, like Down to Earth Construction Services, to take care of their septic services. We have commercial and residential customers who rely upon us to take care of their septic systems so they do not need to worry about them. This is especially true for commercial customers who lose revenue when their septic system is not working. We will schedule septic services for our customers on a quarterly, biannual or annual basis depending on their septic system and the usage it gets. For example a busy restaurant that is open year round will need a service more frequently than a cafe that is only open in the summer ‘season’. Today we have septic services scheduled in Marion, Mattapoisett, Rochester, Acushnet, Freetown and Fairhaven MA. If you would be interested in scheduling a septic service or if you have any questions about septic systems or our septic services please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit Down to Earth Construction Services

Excess Water In Your Septic System Can Result In Septic Problems

Down to Earth Construction Services regularly attend septic problems that could have been avoided if the property owner had better information and knowledge about how to ‘live’ in a home which has its own septic system and is not on town sewer. A mistake that many septic system owners make is to put too much water into the system. The decomposition process can become strained if there is too much excess water in the system, resulting in a variety of septic problems. Ideally, septic owners should only be using a maximum of 50 gallons of water per day, per person. The following averages for common household activities can help you keep track:

 

  • Dishwasher Cycle – 7 gallons

  • Washing Machine – 40 gallons per load (less with front-loader machines)

  • Toilet – 2 gallons per flush, 1.6 gallons for newer standard toilets

  • Shower – 2.5 gallons per minute (a 10 minute shower = 25 gallons)

 

It can be difficult to stay on top of usage, particularly for large families, but laying down some basic guidelines can help everyone to work together. New environmentally-friendly appliances, toilets and shower heads can help reduce usage without a lot of extra effort. A water meter can be helpful for households that feed off of a well. The government website http://energystar.gov also has a lot of helpful ideas and tips for reducing water usage.

 

Always remember that a septic system is installed based upon the number of people that are anticipated to be using it. If your base number increases, you might need to upgrade to a larger system.


We are providing a septic repair for a large family with a home in Rochester MA today and the root cause of their septic problems was that they were having a large laundry day once a week instead of spreading loads out over an entire week. This strained their system too much and has resulted in a repair being necessary. We have other septic repairs today in Raynham, Rehoboth, Seekonk, Swansea and Freetown MA.
