D-Box Repair Today In Attleboro MA

Down to Earth Construction Services are replacing a D-Box for a customer today in Attleboro, MA. A septic distribution box  (D-Box) is a container used to receive septic system effluent from a septic tank and to re-distribute the effluent into a network of attached drainfield or soakaway bed absorption trenches and pipes. The D-Box works by gravity, flowing effluent into the drainfield (or leach field) piping network. It must be installed correctly to ensure that it  distributes evenly. You must also maintain your septic system and the best way to do this is to have your system regularly pumped and to use your septic system correctly. The following are some steps that you can take to ensure that your system can work correctly:

 

  • 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 for customers today in Norton, Berkley, Acushnet and Rochester MA.

Title 5 Septic Inspections Carried Out In Central Massachusetts

 

Down to Earth Construction Services  know that moving home at any time of the year is a stressful and time consuming business. If you are selling a home in addition to buying a home this just seems to double the workload. Therefore we try to make one small part of your move as painless as possible. If you are selling a home with a septic system in Massachusetts you are likely to need to have a Title 5 Inspection. As stated on the Mass Gov Website:

 

“In order to ensure that septic systems (conventional septic systems, cesspools, and innovative/alternative systems) are protective of human health and the environment, MassDEP generally requires that systems be inspected when a property is sold.

When is an inspection required?
When a property is sold to new owners, or there otherwise is a transfer of title to new owners, with certain exceptions.
“Title 5 does not require a system inspection if the transfer is of residential real property, and is between the following relationships:
(1) between current spouses;
(2) between parents and their children;
(3) between full siblings; and
(4) where the grantor transfers the real property to be held in a revocable or irrevocable trust, where at least one of the designated beneficiaries is of the first degree of relationship to the grantor”.

Down To Earth Construction Services Provide Cesspool Services and Cesspool Replacements

Down to Earth Construction Services has cesspool maintenance appointments in North Attleboro, Foxboro and Norton MA today. 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 replacements when required. We recently replaced a cesspool for a customer in Attleboro 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 office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
