Septic Repairs Including A Leach Field Repair in Rochester Today

Down to Earth Construction Services have a septic repair scheduled today for a customer in Rochester MA. Our client unknowingly planted trees in close proximity to their septic tank and leach field a number of years ago. As the trees have matured and their root systems have extended they have caused damage to the leach field and septic tank of their septic system. We are providing extensive septic repairs which include repairs and replacement of piping and the tank. It is always a good idea to simply have grass covering your septic leach field because large plants, trees and bushes can cause septic problems as we have seen today. We have additional septic repairs scheduled in Freetown, Marion, Mattapoisett, Fairhaven and Fall River. If you need a septic repair or if you have any questions please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com


Septic System Repairs Including a D-Box Replacement

Down to Earth Construction Services can provide our customers with septic system repairs on all parts of their system. Today we are replacing a d-box for a customer in Sharon MA. A septic distribution box (D-Box) is a container used to receive septic system effluent from a septic tank and to re-distribute the effluent into a network of attached drain field or leach field absorption trenches and pipes. The D-box works by gravity, flowing effluent into the drainfield (or leach field) piping network. It must be installed correctly to ensure that it distributes evenly. We are also assisting our customer with locating their leach field for easement and have the appropriate permission from their neighbour to do so. This may seem unnecessary but if a homeowner has moved into a property but was not provided with property designs or as built drawings for their property they may be unaware of the location of their septic system components. If your septic system is working correctly there should be very little evidence of the location of a leach field. However we have extensive experience with septic systems so will be able to locate a leach field when a homeowner may not be able to do so. We also have additional septic system repairs scheduled today in Mansfield, Norton, Taunton, Canton and Foxboro MA. If you require septic system repairs or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit http://www.downtoearthconst.com

Septic Repairs in Acushnet MA today

Down to Earth Construction Services regularly carry out septic repairs and septic maintenance for customers on all types and parts of septic systems. Today we are replacing a pump panel, float and pump for a customer in Acushnet MA. Some septic systems include a pump and float. A control float in your septic system is set so that a specific volume of effluent is sent to your drain field. This specific amount is referred to as a dose. When the effluent in the tank rises to the level of the “on” float the pump is activated and pumps the level of the effluent down until it reaches the “off” float setting. Of course if these components are not operating correctly or totally fail you will then require a repair or replacement. We also have other septic repairs and some septic maintenance scheduled today in Seekonk, Swansea, Freetown and Norton MA. If you require a septic repair or have questions about your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com where we would be happy to help you.

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.

It’s Summer And We Are Busy With Septic Repairs

Down to Earth Construction Services can’t believe that it’s the middle of summer already. This year seems to be flying by and our technicians are busier than ever. Unfortunately a lot of our repair call outs are from homeowners who have unknowingly caused their septic system problem. Where possible we try to educate home owners in the best way to use their septic system to try to prevent future problems while also finding the cause of the septic problem and fixing it. A few suggestions to keep your septic system working correctly are:

 

  • Pumping. Septic tanks generally should be pumped out every three to five years, depending on how regularly the system is used and/or how many people are using it. Regular pumping ensures that solids will not flow from the septic tank into the drainfield.

  • Use less water. Reducing the amount of wastewater entering your on-site sewage system may increase its lifespan. Excessive water use is a main cause of system failure. Use water-saving bathroom and kitchen fixtures (faucets, showers, toilets). Run and drain appliances, such as dishwashers and washing machines, one at a time. Spread laundry over the entire week and avoid partial loads. Fix all faucet and toilet leaks promptly.

  • Limit garbage disposal use. A garbage disposal adds solids and grease to your system, which could lead to drainfield failure.

  • Direct water from downspouts and roofs away from the drainfield. Additional water from these sources may prevent your drainfield from working properly.

  • Install risers for easier access. Risers from the tank lids to the soil surface make maintenance easier.

  • Don’t use septic tank additives or “miracle” system cleaners. Some of these chemicals can actually harm your system by allowing solids to flow into and clog the drainfield. The chemicals can also contaminate ground and surface water.

  • Don’t dispose of water from hot tubs into your septic system. Large volumes of water are harmful to the system, and the chlorine can destroy important bacteria in the system.

  • Don’t flush solid wastes into the system. These include diapers, cigarette butts, coffee grounds, tampons, condoms, and grease.

  • Don’t put strong chemicals, such as cleaning products, down the drain. Household chemicals — such as drain cleaners, paint thinners and floor cleaners — can destroy important bacteria in your septic tank and contaminate ground and surface water. Laundry additives like bleach and fabric softener can also have a negative effect on the bacteria in your tank.

  • Don’t construct patios, carports or use landscape plastic over the drainfield. Grass is the best cover for your septic tank and drainfield. Soil compaction and paving prevent oxygen from getting into the soil. This oxygen is needed by bacteria to break down and treat sewage.

  • Don’t park cars, trucks or heavy machinery on the septic tank and drainfield areas. The weight can lead to crushed or broken pipes and soil compaction. Compacted soils cannot absorb water from the drainfield. A broken underground pipe can lead to an expensive repair.
