Heavy Use Of Garbage Disposals Can Result In A Septic Breakdown

Down to Earth Construction Services are called out to customer properties on a regular basis to provide a septic repair when the septic breakdown could have been avoided if the property owner had better information on how to use their septic system. Today we have a septic repair appointment in Attleboro MA which could have been avoided if the homeowner had been using their garbage disposal less frequently. One of the biggest problems for septic systems is a garbage disposal. Homeowners that have a septic system should avoid using their garbage disposal to prevent the introduction of unwanted solids into the system which can result in a septic breakdown. Even if your system is designed to accommodate a garbage disposal, it is important to use it moderately. Composting is an alternate solution for homeowners that have a large volume of vegetable waste. This is the reason that many homes with septic systems do not have a garbage disposal because it is difficult to monitor what is going into it and regulate the use. We have other septic repair appointments today in Norton, Rehoboth, Seekonk, Plainville and North Attleboro. If you require a septic repair or have any questions about your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit Down to Earth Construction Services



Sewage Grinder Pump Repair For Septic System

Down to Earth Construction Services know that all parts of your septic system need to be operating to ensure that it is working efficiently and correctly. We have experience repairing all parts of your septic system should it become necessary, even the ones that sound unpleasant and awkward to fix. Some septic systems are fitted with a sewage grinder pump. Waste from water-using household appliances (toilets, bathtubs, washing machines, etc.) flows through your home’s pipes into the grinder pump’s holding tank. Once the wastewater inside the tank reaches a specific level, the pump will turn on, grind the waste into a fine slurry, and pump it to the central sewer system or septic tank. A sewage grinder pump does what the name suggests and is not something that you want to leave inoperative because more serious breakdowns and larger repairs may then be necessary. Today we are providing a sewage grinder pump repair for a customer in Attleboro MA. We also have other septic repairs scheduled in Norton, Rehoboth, Taunton, Seekonk and Raynham MA. If you require a septic repair or if you have concerns about your septic system please do contact our Norton office where we will be happy to answer any questions you have an book an appointment if necessary on 508-622-5759 or visit Down to Earth Construction Services



Septic Design For A Client in Rochester MA

Down to Earth Construction Services were contacted by a client with a property in Rochester MA which they are planning to sell but it has failed its Title 5 Septic Inspection. The homeowner was not required to have their entire septic system replaced but have chosen to do so to better enable them to sell their property quickly and at a higher price. We are providing the initial septic design after consultation to determine the needs of our client and a PERC Test which has given us the information that we require, in addition to our extensive knowledge of the local and state septic regulations. With this information we are able to provide a septic design for our clients which will exceed their septic requirements while meeting all septic standards set by the state and town and being environmentally conscious. We have recently provided other septic system designs to clients in Norton, Attleboro, Acushnet and Lakeville MA. If you require a septic 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 Down to Earth Construction Services


Septic Repair in Attleboro MA

Down to Earth Construction Services have a septic repair scheduled today for a customer in Attleboro MA. We are replacing their distribution Box (D-Box). A D-Box is exactly as it sounds it’s 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 septic 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 Norton, Stoughton, Canton and Taunton 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 Down to Earth Construction Services

Septic Design For An Attleboro, Massachusetts Property

Down to Earth Construction Services know that if you need a septic design it is wise to go to a company that has experience designing septic systems in your specific area. Septic regulations can vary from town to town and certainly vary from state to state so you want to be sure that your septic design will be compliant because if it isn’t at best you may face delays or at worst you may face delays and extensive excavations to ‘fix’ any issues and vastly increased costs associated with this. Down to Earth Construction Services have been working in Massachusetts for over 30 years and therefore have extensive experience providing septic designs for our clients in this region. We also have experience designing septic systems for our clients that work with the environment and our clients individual requirements. We know what system will work best for a property that is close to the ocean, has a small plot, is on a steep slope or has many other circumstances that will often require a septic system that is tailored to be the perfect fit for a specific property. Today we are meeting with a client who has a property on a small plot in Attleboro, MA and we are discussing the options that they have for their septic design. We have extensive experience working in Attleboro and the surrounding towns having recently provided septic system designs for customers in towns including Rehoboth, Norton, Taunton and Rochester MA.

Down To Earth Construction Services Can Provide SEptic Engineering Services

Down to Earth Construction Services have trained septic experts who can assist property owners with their septic engineering requirements. We can assist with services to improve or repair your property such as soil evaluations, septic design and land use planning, septic improvements such as installation of risers, covers or filters and construction layouts for large or small commercial developments. Today we are conducting a soil evaluation for a customer in Attleboro MA. The soil evaluation will determine if the client’s building site is suitable for a conventional septic system and is typically called a “perc test’ or “perk test” (a percolation test). Traditional septic systems only work if the soil in the leach area is sufficiently permeable that it can readily absorb the liquid effluent flowing into it. Also, there must be at least a few feet of good soil from the bottom of the leach pipes to the rock or impervious hardpan below, or to the water table. Less commonly, a site can fail because the soil is too permeable, allowing the effluent to reach the groundwater before it is fully treated. Very steep slopes are also unsuitable for a conventional leach field. The specific standards vary from town to town, but any of these characteristics can prohibit the use of a standard gravity-fed septic system. Down to Earth Construction Services have extensive experience with various types of septic system so there are always alternative systems that can be used if the perc test does show some unfavorable results for a conventional system. We also have extensive experience with towns in this region so we know the individual requirements for different towns. We have other septic engineering appointments today in Norton, Rehoboth, Raynham and Dighton MA.
