Properly Maintaining Your Septic System

septic maintenanceA septic system that has been designed, built and maintained properly will effectively and efficiently reduce or eliminate most of the waste, health and environmental threats that can come as a result of household wastewater. However, despite a good design and quality workmanship, septic system care should include participation in a preventative maintenance program.

Regular maintenance is important to prevent septic system failure, which can be dangerous and costly to repair. Your septic system needs to be monitored by a professional inspector and service company to ensure that it is performing adequately for the number of persons living in your home and the amount of daily use.

Make sure to speak with a trusted septic service professional before making any changes to your system or usage patterns to ensure that you are working within the parameters of your system’s design and capabilities.
Proper septic system care will save you money in the long run.  A septic system that has failed will be very expensive to repair or replace and unfortunately, poor maintenance and care is usually the reason why most systems fail.

Signing up for a preventative maintenance program, such as the one offered by Septic Preservation Services is worth the cost associated with the service when you think about how much it would cost to replace the entire system after a failure. Your septic service professional will inspect and monitor your residential septic system to ensure that is in good working order.

Pumping should occur approximately every three to five years.   Your preventative maintenance program serviceman will let you know when your system needs to be pumped and will give you tips on how to properly maintain your septic system in the mean time.

Pumping will depend on the quality of your septic system, the number of people living in your home and the size of your tank and drainfield. A system that has failed can considerably lower your property value and could become a health and legal liability.
The health and welfare of you, your family, your guests, your neighbors and everyone in your community depends on your ability to maintain septic system care.  Because your septic system does the dirty job of processing and eliminating human waste from your home, improper maintenance can cause a lot of unhealthy problems.

A well-running septic system will work to prevent the spread of disease and infection. Regular septic system maintenance will ensure that the dangerous pathogens from your wastewater doesn’t reach the local groundwater supply. Other dangerous things that can be found in household wastewater include phosphorus, nitrogen and disease-causing bacteria.

Studies show that 25% of all homes in the United States use a septic system. Approximately 4 billion gallons of wastewater is dispersed below the surface each and every day. Septic systems that aren’t effectively treating the sewage in the drainfield can become a health hazard and a threat to drinking water, contaminating wells and surface waters. This can pose a threat of infection and disease not just to humans, but also to animals living in the area.

Surface waters, such as rivers, lakes and ponds, that become contaminated by improperly treated sewage can cause a variety of infectious diseases. Eye and ear infections are common, as are acute gastrointestinal illnesses. Diseases like hepatitis can also be spread throughout communities and to recreational water users and swimmers in this manner.
Now that we know why you should maintain your septic system, it’s time to talk about how to get the job done. We have already talked about getting in touch with your septic service provider to find out about a preventative maintenance program. Remember, Septic Preservation Services services customers all throughout  Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and Maine.  Their highly trained and experienced staff can help you with septic system care  all over the South Coast region.

You should also take the time to learn all you can about proper use of your septic system, how much water you should be using, ways to reduce the amount of water you put into your septic tank each day, things you should never flush down the toilet and other helpful tips. Your septic system service provider can help get you started with a clean and functional system and can help you develop good habits that will keep your system running effectively and efficiently.

Cesspool Services and Replacement in Massachusetts Today

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services has cesspool services and a cesspool replacement scheduled today in Stoughton, Bridgewater, Canton, Taunton, Berkley and Carver, MA.  As written 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 need a Title 5 Inspection to be done. Title 5 does not require that cesspools be replaced however as stated on the Massachusetts Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs:

 

“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”.
We are replacing a cesspool for a customer because it has hydraulic failure. If you are concerned that your cesspool needs replacing or you require a cesspool service please do contact our office at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
