Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services have extensive experience working with different types of septic systems.  We have the equipment and knowledge to repair and service septic systems with a variety of septic problems, whether they are small fixes or require extensive excavation, engineering and replacement.  We have an appointment today for a customer with a leach field problem in Norton, MA.  This may have been caused by the age of the field, compacting of the drain field by cars or even livestock, too much water run off or too much water usage.  The customer had noticed that they had a consistent puddling on top of their leach field and the field itself was unusually green and lush compared to the surrounding yard.  We will be able to repair this leach field after inspection of the issue.  We also have other septic repairs scheduled in Attleboro, Plainville, Lakeville and Stoughton, MA.  If you are concerned that you may need a septic repair or have questions about your septic system please do contact our office at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Cesspool Repacement

Septic Preservation Services Septic Preservation Services are doing a cesspool replacement for a customer in Acushnet, MA today.  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.  Over time, when the drainage area around the leaching pool becomes saturated, additional pools may have to be dug to handle the volume.  Cesspools must be treated to avoid harmful chemicals from forming and also to empty the pool which needs to be done regularly.  This is the reason which makes a cesspool require a high cost of maintenance.

 

In Massachusetts Title 5 does not require Cesspools to be replaced:

 

“only those 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).” The Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs

 

We provide cesspool services, pump out services and cesspool replacement if requested.  We have worked with customers in Attleboro, Bridgewater, Raynham, Franklin, Sturbridge, Marion and Westford, MA recently to either replace cesspools which were required because of Title 5, or requested for financial or environmental reasons by the property owner.  We have also conducted cesspool services and pumping.
If your property has a cesspool, make sure that you work with a company that has extensive experience working with cesspools in Massachusetts.  If you have any questions or need to arrange an appointment please do contact our office at 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
