Septic Designs Provided For Many Different Types Of Properties and Client

Down to Earth Construction Services have a vast amount of experience and expertise in the septic industry. We are able to use this knowledge to provide septic designs for our clients that best fit their needs and also the environment that the system will be placed. For example the septic system that is designed to go on a small plot to serve a private residence will not be identical to a septic system that is going on a property near wetlands that supports a restaurant. Septic systems all run on the same basic principle but the details vary and it is in those details that we can make sure that the system not only suits our clients expectations in regards to cost, efficiency and operation but also the environment in which it is situated. Today we have a septic design meeting at our Norton Office for a client with a property in Stoughton MA. If you require a septic system design or if you have any questions about septic designs or septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit http://www.downtoearthconst.com

Septic Services For Commercial and Residential Customers

Down to Earth Construction Services is fortunate to have many long term customers who we have developed excellent working relationships with. This may seem unusual for a septic company but in addition to installing, repairing and inspecting septic systems we also provide preventative maintenance programs for our customers which many property owners choose to take after having a system installed and continue to receive for many years because they are so pleased with the service that they receive. We monitor and maintain our customers’ septic systems so they can be confident that their septic system is working correctly and will continue to do so. Nobody likes to have to deal with a septic breakdown but this is especially true for commercial business owners who lose revenue when they are unable to open due to a septic problem. That is why our customers include many local restaurants, takeaways, condominiums, coffee shops and fast food restaurants. We service our customers septic systems discreetly and quickly without causing any downtime in operation which is, of course, essential. We also service residential customers properties and the regularity of our services depends on the septic system and the use it gets. We have customers who have a 2nd home on the coast who don’t use their system all year round so they do not need their system to be serviced as frequently as a busy fast food restaurant. We generally see our customers on a quarterly, biannual or annual basis, as required. In actuality we don’t even need to ‘see’ our clients when we carry out a service because we can usually access the septic system without the property owners assistance. If you would be interested in hassle free septic system preventative maintenance please do contact our Norton office for details on our septic services or to make an appointment. Today we already have septic services for commercial and residential customers in Attleboro, East Bridgewater, Mansfield, Norton, Stoughton and Sharon MA.

Septic Inspections and Voluntary Septic Assessments

Septic Repairs including a D-Box Replacement

Down to Earth Construction Services have a septic repair scheduled today for a customer in East Bridgewater MA. We are replacing their Distribution Box (D-Box). A D-Box is exactly as it sounds its a box that moves, or distributes treated wastewater from your septic tank into your leach field or drain field. It must be level and installed correctly or your wastewater will not distribute evenly across your leach field and this can lead to over saturation and clogging which is not desirable. The d-box we are replacing was damaged when heavy equipment was mistakenly parked on top of it which broke and moved it. We have found that many property owners with septic systems while they know they have a septic tank sometimes forget that the leachfield and d-box are also essential parts of their septic system and must also be maintained. Here are a few simple tips to help you look after all parts of your septic system:

 

  • Minimize the use of the garbage disposal

  • Do not put grease down your drains

  • Spread loads of laundry out over time rather than doing multiple loads in a short period of time, and use liquid detergents rather than powdered detergents

  • Avoid excessively long showers

  • Avoid leaving tap water running when shaving, brushing teeth or doing other personal or household tasks

  • Do not flush medications, harmful chemicals, excessive amounts of bleach, harsh drain cleaners or degreasers

  • Have the septic tank pumped at least every three years

  • Do not add any septic systems cleaners, enzymes or additives

  • Remove water conditioning backwash discharges from the spetic system

  • Do not plant trees and shrubs over leach fields

  • Do not flush personal products, paper towels, wipes or diapers

  • Do not clean or rinse paint brushes in the sinks

  • Equip all hot tubs, spas, whirlpool baths, etcetera with drain limiting valves that will only allow five gallons per minute to drain from fixture

  • Do not drive vehicles over leach fields


We also have septic repairs scheduled in Stoughton, Canton, Marshfield and Norton MA and some of these repairs could have been avoided by following the above advice. If you have any questions about your septic system or if you need a septic repair please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Mass Gov States that”

Property owners are likely to schedule a voluntary assessment of their septic system because the want to know its condition and see if maintenance or repairs are required. This is important because failing systems can:

 

  • cause a serious health threat to your family and neighbors,

  • degrade the environment, especially lakes, streams and groundwater,

  • reduce the value of your property,

  • be very expensive to repair,

  • and put thousands of water supply users at risk if you live in a public water supply watershed and fail to maintain your system

Melting Snow Means That Title 5 Septic Inspections Resume

Down to Earth Construction Services are pleased that the majority of snow finally melted over the weekend. Although we can still carry out septic services in winter some tasks can’t be done when the ground is frozen and covered in over foot of snow. However we know that while winter can slow a lot of things down people still need to move house and if they have a septic system in Massachusetts they are required to have a Title 5 Septic Inspection done. Thankfully the regulations acknowledge that living in New England sometimes means that the weather will play a factor in planning so it is stated on the Massachusetts Government Website that”

“If weather conditions prevent an inspection before a sale, Title 5 allows the inspection to be done up to 6 months afterwards, provided that the seller notifies the buyer in writing of the need to complete the inspection.”

For more information see: https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system

Today we have Title 5 Septic Inspections scheduled for customers in East Bridgewater, Stoughton, Canton, Sharon, Mansfield and Norton MA. These inspections include ones that had to be rescheduled due to the severe snow we received a week ago.
