Leach Field Repair In Rochester MA Necessary

Down to Earth Construction Services know that in the beautiful New England Summer many people are out in their yards planting and gardening. Unfortunately when you are planting large shrubs or trees in your yard if you do so on your leach field you can unknowingly create a septic problem. The roots and sometimes weight of plants can actually damage your drain field which means that your septic system is no longer working correctly.  Septic systems do an amazing job of returning liquids to the soil for purification but the whole system needs to be functioning correctly for this to happen. When septic system failure occurs, the conditions they create are dangerous. These can include:

 

  • Hazardous sewage surfacing in yard

  • Health hazards to children and pets

  • Noxious odors over large areas

  • Polluted streams and ponds

  • Sewage back-up in buildings

  • Contaminated wells

  • Breeding areas for mosquitoes


Today we are at a customer’s home in Rochester, MA repairing their leach field which has been damaged when they planed an orchard over it last year. The roots combined with heavy machinery being parked on the drainfield during construction have both lead to the structural collapse of the leach field piping. A strong sewage odor and dampness over their yard was luckily a sign of a septic problem that the homeowners did not ignore. We can repair the damage so they do not have to worry about the consequences of an inoperative septic system. We also have other septic repairs scheduled today in Rochester, Seekonk, Fairhaven, Fall River and Mattapoisett MA. If you require a septic repair or if you have any questions about septic systems please do call us at our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

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

Sewage Grinder Pump Repair in Attleboro MA

Down to Earth Construction Services have been called to a customer’s property in Attleboro MA to repair their sewage grinder pump. This doesn’t sound especially appealing but has an important role in their septic system so needs to be operating correctly. A sewage grinder pump is a wastewater conveyance device. Waste from water using household appliances (toilets, bathtubs, washing machines etc) flows through the home’s pipes into the grinder pump’s holding tank. Once the wastewater inside the tank reaches a specific level, the pump will turn on, grind the waste into a fine slurry, and pump it to the septic tank. We have extensive experience with septic systems and repairing different elements of them including d-boxes, septic pumps and drain fields/ leachfields. We also provide septic upgrades and improvements such as the addition of risers, covers and effluent filters. The addition of an effluent filter in the outlet tee of your septic tank can extend the life of your septic system. Once installed risers and system covers enable homeowners to provide easy access to the system for future repairs, upgrades or cleaning services, eliminating the need to dig and excavate the system each time it needs to be pumped. We are also at a customer property in Norton MA installing a septic system cover today in addition to providing septic repairs in Rochester and Lakeville MA.
