Leach Field Repair by Down to Earth Construction

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services is experienced diagnosing and repairing septic systems and leach fields/ drainfields. We have been called in for a leach field repair in Clinton, MA, which has been caused by irregular pumping of the septic system.  A septic tank should be pumped every 3 – 5 years depending on various factors including water usage and tank size.  If the tank fills up with an excess of solids, the wastewater will not have enough time to settle in the tank.  These excess solids will then pass on to the leach field, where they will clog the drain lines and soil.  The property owner called us concerned because they had liquid puddling on their leach field and sewage smells coming from the drainfield.  We also have other septic repairs today in Attleboro, Rehoboth, Swansea, Dighton, Norton, and Plainville, MA.  If you are concerned that you may need a septic system repair, leach field or drainfield repair, septic pump repair or d-box repair, please do contact our office to discuss your concerns and to make an appointment if necessary.  You can reach us at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Septic Pumps and Septic Alarms

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services are installing a septic pump and septic alarm for a customer in Uxbridge, MA.  A septic pump moves wastewater from a septic pump tank to a drainfield, and septic systems with these pumps should also have a septic alarm.  The septic alarm will usually go off if wastewater is not being pumped to the drainfield as it should be.  It will signal if water has risen to an irregular level indicating a septic problem.  Down to Earth Construction Services has, in stock, many septic pumps with septic alarms, so if you need to have your pump replaced or if you need a septic alarm, we can install one on short notice.  We have installed septic pumps and septic pump alarms for customs recently in Berlin, Holliston, Carver, Oxford, Clinton, Marion and Marshfield, MA.  If you need a septic pump or septic pump and septic alarm repair or installation, please do contact our office to schedule an appointment at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
