Down to Earth Construction Services Providing Thorough And Reliable Septic Inspections

Down to Earth Construction Services have certified septic inspectors with the most up to date equipment who are ready to provide our customers with thorough, reliable septic inspections. If your property is not on town sewer it is essential that your septic system is working correctly to ensure that your waste is being processed correctly. Also when you are selling a property Title 5 requires a septic inspection to have been done within the last two years. Unless you have a new home or bought your property in the last two years this will usually mean that you will need to have a septic inspection carried out before Title to the property can be transferred. The benefit is that once you have had the inspection done it is good for two years so you can have the inspection carried out at the start of your selling process so once it is completed that is a selling point and wont cause delays later on. So it is always advisable to have your septic inspection done as soon as you decide you are selling your property. Other benefits of an inspection include:

 

  • Keeping you informed of the status of your septic system. Your system must be maintained to ensure it continues to operate correctly. The inspection will notify you if it is time to have your septic pumped or for any other maintenance

 

  • An Inspection will identify any repairs that need to be done to your system. Spotting small septic problems can result in a quick, easy and inexpensive repair in contrast to a large, messy and expensive repair if a problem is left to get more extensive.

 

  • If you are selling your property it provides a home buyer with a detailed report of the location and condition of your septic system components at the time of the inspection.The data collected assists the home buyer with their purchasing decision.

 

Today we have septic inspections scheduled in Wayland, Marlborough, Bolton, Clinton, Upton and Oxford MA. If you live in Massachusetts and you have a septic system servicing your property and need a septic inspection or if you have any questions about septic inspections please do contact us at 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.
