Safety Meeting to Ensure Our Septic Technicians and Customers are Safe

Down to Earth Construction Services had its monthly safety meeting today. The safety of our employees and customers is of the utmost importance to us so we ensure that we stay ahead of safety training, safety procedures and that our equipment is safe and our employees know how to use it correctly. Even though it is raining today part of our safety commitment is ensuring that our staff are safe whatever the weather so today our meeting covered heat stress and sun exposure training to ensure that our staff know how to work safely when the sun does show itself. We also focused on trailer safety for open, closed and equipment trailers including correct loading, tie down and visual inspections. This is very important because especially when we are doing excavation with large equipment or a septic installation with the necessary machines and equipment we need to be certain that it is moved safety to the site and also used correctly and safely. We have recently completed septic system installations in Bridgewater, Wayland, Clinton and Southborough. If you need septic services or have any questions about septic systems or the services we provide please do contact our Norton Office on 508-622-5759 or visit http://www.downtoearthconst.com

Septic Work Including Inspections, Excavation, Repairs, Installations and Maintenance

Down to Earth Construction Services not only does the heavy construction and excavation associated with the installation of septic systems but also provides continued maintenance, repair and inspection of septic systems. Today we have Title 5 septic inspections scheduled in Seekonk, Rehoboth, Plainville, Attleboro and Wrentham MA. As stated on the Mas Gov website:

 

“The inspection includes determining the location and condition of cesspools, septic tanks and distribution boxes. Often, this will not require extensive excavation.” For more information see https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system

 

Therefore as stated it is not often that we are required to excavate to carry out a septic inspection but if, for any reason, that is necessary we do have the equipment, operators and skills to do so without having to wait, and pay for, for an outside contractor. You can also be confident that we will carry out the work to our own high standards because we do all of the work, even if extensive excavation is required. If you require a Title 5 Septic Inspection or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact us on  508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com


Snow and Winter Do Not Stop Down To Earth Construction Services

Down to Earth Construction Services has now had quite enough of snow and Winter this year. New England seems to be dragging its feet bringing in Spring and we are quite ready for some ‘spring like’ days! Luckily the septic industry does not stop in snow and we can still proceed with most of our services for our customers. As long as we can get access to the septic system and if we are excavating the ground isn’t frozen solid we can still provide septic assistance to our customers. This is great news if you have an urgent septic repair that needs to be done. If your septic system is not operating correctly it is always a good idea to have it seen by a professional as soon as possible because a delay can result in a bigger and more expensive problem. Today Down to Earth Construction Services have septic repairs scheduled in Taunton, Raynham, Rehoboth, Berkley, Dighton and Norton MA. If you require a septic system repair or if you have any questions about your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit http://www.downtoearthconst.com

If Your Property Is Not On Town Sewer A Septic Service Could Take Your Septic Maintenance Concerns Away

Down to Earth Construction Services know that many people when they hear the word ‘sewer’ either think of old, large, dank, dark and smelly sewer systems under some city in Europe or adolescent turtles with unlikely names fighting bad guys through the sewer tunnel system. Neither image is particularly accurate for sewer systems in Massachusetts which service many homes across the state. However homes and properties that are not on the town sewer system still need to process their wastewater and the solution is an individual septic system. If you buy a property with a septic system and have never had one before this can be a daunting prospect. However septic services provided by Down to Earth Construction Services are designed to give homeowners peace of mind because you then know that your system is being properly checked, maintained and monitored. This means that you do not have to worry about unexpected repairs or maintenance because we will take care of your septic system for you so repairs are much less likely to be necessary and problems will be located before they become a big concern. We schedule septic services for our customers on maintenance contracts on a quarterly, biannual or annual basis depending on their septic system and the use that it gets. Today we have septic service appointments in Dighton, Taunton, Berkley, Middleboro and Norton MA. If you would be interested in septic services or if you have questions please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit http://www.downtoearthconst.com

 

It Is Unwise To Ignore A Septic Problem And Hope It Will Go Away

Down to Earth Construction Service give you a pinch and a punch for the first of the month! The year is certainly marching along and we can’t quite believe that March is here already. Spring is on its way and property owners are starting to think about repairs and maintenance that have been put off over the winter. However if you have a concern about your septic system it is wise to have it addressed immediately and not leave it until your springtime maintenance. Indicators that you may have a septic problem include:

  • Pipe Gurgling Sounds

  • Toilet Flushing Issues

  • Slow Drains

  • Water Backup

  • Bad Odors

  • Greener Grass

  • Patches of Standing Water

If you have noticed one or more of these signs at your property please do consider calling to discuss your concerns with our experienced technicians. If a septic problem is ignored it is very unlikely to go away on its own and will quite possibly become a much larger and more expensive repair if left. Today we have septic repair appointments in Plainville, North Attleboro, Wrentham and Foxboro MA. If you wish to schedule a septic repair or if you have septic questions or concerns please do contact us at our Norton office on  508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

 

Septic Services Including Septic Repairs And Septic Upgrades Year Round

Down to Earth Construction Services provide our septic services to our customers year round, even in the winter time! Today we have septic repairs and septic upgrades scheduled for customers in Bellingham, Blackstone, Upton and Franklin MA . We are adding a riser to the outlet of a septic tank for a customer in Oxford MA. Adding risers, covers and filters to your septic system will improve its effectiveness. When your septic system is more accessible, it is also much safer and more attractive. These goals can be achieved through the use of strong, durable risers and system covers. Once installed, homeowners are able to provide easy access to the system for future septic repairs, septic upgrades or cleaning services, eliminating the need to dig and excavate the system each time it needs to be pumped. Another septic upgrade we can provide to customers is the addition of a effluent filter. Engineers, scientists and educators in the septic industry suggest that property owners install an effluent filter in the outlet tee of their septic tank to extend the life of their system. Due to the high cost associated with replacing a septic system, these seemingly small upgrades to your system will pay off in a big way. If you would be interested in septic system upgrades or if you need a septic repair please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit http://www.downtoearthconst.com

Septic Engineering Services Provided In Addition To Septic Construction Services

Down to Earth Construction Services offer so much more than septic ‘construction’. While we certainly use our experience in this area to provide excavation, septic installation and extensive repairs to septic systems we also have the skills and knowledge for septic engineering tasks such as providing septic designs, soil evaluations, construction layouts and perc tests. Today we have a perc test, or percolation test, for a customer in Attleboro MA. A perc test evaluates the rate at which water drains through soil. This is extremely important to know before you install a septic system because you need to know the level of liquid absorption into the soil in order to design the system which includes the leach field or drain field, where wastewater percolates back into the soil after the solids have settled into the septic tank. The typical size of a drain field is determined by the expected volume of waste water to be discharged from the septic system (which is usually estimated based on the size of the proposed building) and of course the speed at which the liquid can drain which is determined by the perc test is essential information. The perc test is conducted by drilling or digging a hole in the ground, pouring water into the hole and then observing the rate at which the water is absorbed into the soil. We have provided other septic engineering services to customers throughout the region including recently in Southborough, West Bridgewater and Berlin MA.
