Title 5 Septic Inspections

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services has Title 5 Septic Inspections scheduled today in Uxbridge, Blackstone, Bellingham, Franklin, Wrentham, Berlin, and Bolton, MA.  A title 5 septic inspection is required to be done prior to a property being sold if it has a septic system.  We have had customers ask if the septic system needs to be dug up for the septic system to be inspected.  As stated on the Massachusetts Official website of the executive office of energy and environmental affairs:

 

“The location and condition of cesspools, septic tanks and distribution boxes must be determined. Often, this will not require extensive excavation. Generally, leaching areas are not required to be dug up.”
However if there is a need for excavation, as happens in rare instances, Down to Earth Construction Services have the equipment and expertise to do this without having to reply upon contractors.  If you need to schedule a Title 5 Septic Inspection or if you have any questions about the inspection or what it entails please do contact our office at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Down to Earth Construction Addresses Septic System Concerns

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services has septic system repairs today in Bellingham, Franklin, Foxboro, Blackstone, Canton, Sharon, and Mansfield, MA, for customers who have contacted us because they are concerned that their septic system may not be operating correctly.  It is wise to have septic concerns addressed promptly because if you ignore indications that there may be a problem with your septic system, it could become a much more costly septic repair or failure in the future. Signs of a problem may include, slow draining toilets and sinks, gurgling noises within the plumbing, sewage odors inside, continuing drainage backups, or bacteria in the well water.  If any of these symptoms exist, check for more pronounced indications of a septic system failure.  Check the absorption field for unusually strong odors.  The typical visually identifiable sign of a septic failure is lush patches of grass or areas in which the plants are flourishing much more than other areas.  Another indicator of a septic failure is the presence of pooled effluent on the surface of the yard. If this has happened, it means the surrounding soil has become saturated with untreated waste material.  If you have these signs or any other concerns that your septic system needs a repair, please do contact our office for more information or to make an appointment at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

If a septic system is not used correctly, repairs and sometimes system failures can happen and often some simple changes can avoid this.  Property owners need to be aware of all the liquids and solids that are introduced into their septic system. Some of these are obviously not a good idea including clothing, toys, diapers and household objects such as scouring pads. However some may be slightly less clear, oils, fats and grease, ‘flushable’ wipes, sanitary items, and  some cleaning products.  Be careful of what you introduce to your septic system and you may avoid some costly septic system repairs, but if you do need an appointment, please do contact our office.  It is always inadvisable to wait and we can schedule appointments on short notice.
