Down to Earth Construction Services Are Available For Your Septic Needs Over The Holidays

Down to Earth Construction Services are looking forward to the upcoming holidays. Holidays usually mean good food and spending time with friends and family. However if you are hosting large gatherings it is a good idea to consider your septic system’s limitations when you plan a large event at your home. We have one customer who has a small property with a correspondingly small septic system. However they regularly host large gatherings of friends and family which puts a huge strain on their septic system. They have found that it is more cost effective to hire portable toilets for their events than to have their septic system pumped much more regularly due to the excessive use it gets when more people are using the system. This also reduces the likelihood of associated repairs and failures caused by a septic system that has not been pumped when required. If you are planning a large Christmas Party this holiday season at home or have a lot of extra guests staying at your home for an extended period of time consider your septic system. Sometimes it is worth getting portable toilets in for your party but if you do not make sure you know when your system was last pumped and consider having another pump out after the holidays. Also spread washing loads out over a week rather than doing multiple loads of laundry in one day which can also overload your septic. If you are unsure we are always happy to discuss your concerns. If you do have a septic problem arise we are working over the holidays so please do contact us if you have questions or need to schedule an appointment. Today we have septic repair appointments in Lakeville, Freetown, Rochester and Berkley MA. If you wish to schedule an appointment or if you have any questions regarding your septic system you can reach us at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

 

 

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 use of cesspools may overload the capacity of the soil to remove bacteria, viruses, and phosphorus, and to nitrify ammonia and organic nitrogen compounds. 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. Today we have appointments for cesspool services in Wrentham, Berlin, Bolton, Clinton and Bellingham MA. If you have a cesspool and need cesspool service, cesspool repairs or have any questions please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

 

 

Irregular Pumping Of A Septic System Leads To Drainfield Problems

Down to Earth Construction Services is experienced diagnosing and repairing septic systems and leach fields/ drainfields. We have been called in for a drainfield repair in Marshfield MA which has been caused by irregular pumping of the septic system. A septic tank should be pumped every 3 – 5 years depending on various factors including water usage and tank size. If the tank fills up with an excess of solids, the wastewater will not have enough time to settle in the tank. These excess solids will then pass on to the drainfield, where they will clog the drain lines and soil. The property owner called us concerned because they had liquid puddling on their drainfield and sewage smells coming from it. We also have other septic repairs today in Canton, West Bridgewater and Stoughton MA. If you are concerned that you many need a septic system repair, leach field or drainfield repair, septic pump repair or d-box repair please do contact our office to discuss your concerns and to make an appointment if necessary on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

 

 

Septic Inspection For A Condominium Building

Down to Earth Construction Services conduct many septic inspections throughout the year and the majority are for property owners who are selling their home or commercial property and need to have a septic inspection because they have a septic system and are not on town sewer. However there are other instances when a septic inspection is required. Today we have septic inspections in Fall River, Fairhaven, Acushnet, Mattapoisett and Marion MA including an inspection for a condominium building which is not being sold. As stated on the Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs:

 

“Units in a Condominium or Cooperative Corporation.  The cooperative corporation or condominium association shall be responsible for the inspection, maintenance, and upgrade of any system or systems serving the units, unless otherwise provided in the governing documents of the condominium association or the cooperative corporation.  For a facility comprised of five or more condominium or cooperative units, each system located on the facility shall be inspected at least once every three years instead of at time of transfer of title and all existing systems shall be inspected by December 1, 1996.”

Our client’s Condominium building is larger than 5 units so we are inspecting their system as required by Massachusetts because it will soon be over 3 years since their last septic inspection. If you require 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
