Experts in Septic Design, Installation and Inspection

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services had a septic system installation in Rochester, MA starting yesterday.  Our client  initially needed a septic design for a septic system because they needed to replace a failing cesspool on their property.  We have the experience and knowledge to provide a septic design that was tailored to their individual needs and those of their property. Yesterday we started the septic system installation because our client chose to continue to use our services. They are confident in our professionalism and ability to install their system quickly and correctly with minimum disruption.  We have the equipment and operators for the excavation,  groundworks and total installation without needing to use a subcontractor so we can ensure that the installation is done to our exacting standards. We will also provide regular septic system services following the installation.

Down to Earth Construction Services also have septic inspections scheduled today in Berkley, Dighton, Norton, Freetown, Fall River, Fairhaven, Acushnet, and Mattapoisett, MA.  Most of the septic inspections that we do are for properties which are being sold.  However, we also have an inspection today for a property which has had an addition which included two bedrooms.  As specified by The Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs of Massachusetts:

“A system must be inspected upon any change of use or increase in design flow, BUT ONLY IF the change or expansion also requires a building permit or occupancy permit from the local building inspector. Examples include adding a bedroom to a house, adding seats to a restaurant, or changing the type of business operating at a commercial location. Check with the Building Department and/or Board of Health to find out if your situation requires a building or occupancy permit which will trigger a system inspection.

 

Any change in the footprint of a building also requires an inspection to determine the location of the system, to ensure that construction will not be located on top of any system components or on the reserve area. If official records are available to determine the location of the system components, this requirement may be waived. Check with your local Board of Health.
If you need to schedule a septic inspection or if you have any questions about septic inspections please do contact our office at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Tips for Septic System Maintenance

Tips  for Your Septic System

It’s important to keep your septic system running smoothly.  There are many things you can change in your household habits to prolong the life of your septic system and keep repairs at bay.

Conserve water whenever possible as a means of reducing the volume of wastewater that will need to be treated and disposed.  Take shorter showers and turn off the faucet while brushing your teeth and doing dishes.  Turn it back on to rinse.

Make repairs to any faucets or toilets that are leaking.  That is simply wasting water and putting extra water into the septic tank and leachfield.

Make sure that you are only discharging biodegradable wastes into your system.  Avoid using cleaners with bleach and harsh chemicals.  Choose natural ingredients or make your own homemade cleaners with household ingredients.

Use 1 ply toilet paper and avoid using too much.  Do not flush, diapers, feminine hygiene products, tissues, wipes or paper towels.

Restrict or avoid use of your garbage disposal.  They can wreak havoc with septic systems.

Avoid putting grease, oils, fats, paint or excess food down your drains. Throw them away or wash outside.

Take the time to ensure that any down spouts or other surface water is diverted away from your drainfield.

It’s a good idea to keep the cover to your septic tank accessible by installing covers and risers for easier inspections and pumping.

Get your septic tank pumped regularly and have it checked for any cracks or leaks.

You can also have an effluent filter installed to prevent debris from entering your drainfield.

You can also add a laundry filter to your washing machine.  Space out your loads of laundry and dishwashing loads to keep your leachfield from getting flooded.

Call  Septic Preservation Services for  a Voluntary Assessment of your septic system.  You can also inquire about becoming part of a preventative maintenance service plan to take all the guess work out of maintaining your septic system and can help you prevent problems before they even occur!
