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

Cesspool Maintenance Sustains The Integrity Of The Environment

Down to Earth Construction Services has cesspool maintenance appointments today in Blackstone, Bellingham, Wrentham, Franklin and Uxbridge MA. A cesspool is any pit or container that receives wastewater from a house or building. The term “cesspool” is usually used to refer to an open pit that is lined with rocks or concrete, but an underground tank or holding container that is not connected to a drainfield can also be defined as a cesspool. The main function of cesspools is the storage of wastewater. 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. Cesspools are only found servicing older properties because other more efficient means of waste treatment are now available. We provide cesspool services and repairs and have also provided cesspool replacement when required. We recently replaced a cesspool for a customer in Norton MA because it was starting to pollute the local groundwater. Ongoing maintenance of your cesspool by having it serviced and having pumpouts is especially important because to sustain the integrity of the environment you need to ensure your cesspool is operating correctly and the surrounding area is not saturated. If you have any questions about cesspools or wish to schedule a cesspool service please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

 

 

Septic Repairs Are Necessary When Cold Weather Causes Septic Problems

Down to Earth Construction Services know that septic problems arise whatever the weather is. However cold weather brings its own set of problems for example:

 

  • If you have a ‘summer home’ or go away and leave your property for periods of time or just use it part of the week wastewater does not enter the system regularly enough and can freeze

  • If you drive over your septic leach field or drainfield you compact your soil. Compacted soil freezes more easily which can result in damaged parts and possible a failing septic system. If it is snowy and you drive over the snow on your system the snow will then provide less insulation for your septic system than snow which has been left untouched

  • If you don’t have enough vegetative cover over your septic system you have less insulation from the cold

  • Leaks in your plumbing release water into the septic which can then freeze

  • Poor pipe drainage can be caused by deteriorated pipes, if they are full or back filled with soil or poorly installed. Liquid will pool on one side and can then freeze

Essentially the cold can lead to your septic system freezing which leads to problems, possible repairs and even septic failures. Ironically snow falling is a good thing. Fresh snow is an excellent insulator. As it gets compacted it becomes less effective but it is better than a complete lack of snow cover, dry soil conditions and very cold air temperatures for an extended period of time which will all contribute to septic problems. Today we have appointments in Foxboro, Franklin, Bellingham, Blackstone and Wrentham for septic repairs, some of which are caused by septic system owners not planning for the cold weather.

Down to Earth Construction Services Has Extensive Experience Working With Cesspools

Down to Earth Construction Services has extensive experience working with customers with cesspools on their properties. A cesspool is a pit which acts as both a settling chamber for solids and a leaching system for liquids.

The Massachusetts Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs do not require cesspools to be replaced however they do need to be maintained or if they 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 they will need to be upgraded. We provide cesspool services and repairs and have also done cesspool replacements when required.

Septic Inspections Protect You From Public Health Threats

Down to Earth Construction Services know that:

“across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, failing septic systems and cesspools are a major cause of contaminated drinking water, tainted shellfish beds and polluted beaches. Title 5 of the State Environmental Code protects you, your family and your neighbors from these public health threats by requiring inspection of private sewage disposal systems before the sale, expansion or change in use of properties where they are present. Inspection results are reported to local boards of health. Most systems will pass inspection. Systems that fail must be repaired or upgraded.
If you own a home with a septic system or cesspool and have plans to put it up for sale, add a bedroom or convert it to a different use, you will need to have your system inspected – and possibly fixed or replaced.” Mass Gov Website.

Down to Earth Construction Services have septic licensed inspectors who can work with your schedule to carry out your septic inspection. Today we have septic inspections in Bellingham, Blackstone, Foxboro, Franklin, Wrentham and Plainville MA. If you would like to schedule a septic inspection or if you have any questions about septic inspections please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Title 5 Septic Inspections for Property Sales

 

Down to Earth Construction Services have Title 5 septic inspections today in Bellingham, Upton, Uxbridge, Wrentham and Blackstone MA.

As stated on the Massachusetts official website for the executive office of Energy and Environmental Affairs “The purpose of the inspection is to provide sufficient information to determine if the system in its current condition can protect public health and the environment. The inspection does not guarantee that the system will continue to function adequately, or that the system will not fail at a later date. This is a particularly important point to remember if you plan to significantly increase the flow to the system.”

A septic inspection is generally required within two years prior to the sale of a property and we are usually contacted by property owners who are selling so need their septic system to be inspected before Title transfer can take place. We are sometimes contacted by home buyers because prior to transfer of title the buyer can take responsibility for the inspection as long as this is specified in a written contract and it occurs within the specified time frame. If you require a septic inspection or if you have any questions about Title 5 Septic inspections please do contact our office. You can reach us at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
