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

Septic System Design Consultation

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services has a septic system design consultation today at our Norton, MA, office for a customer with property in Canton, MA.  Our client has a cesspool and we are providing a cesspool replacement.  A Title 5 Inspection carried out at the property required that the cesspool needed to be replaced because it was exhibiting signs of failure.  We have experience in the design and installation of many types of septic systems so we can tailor a septic design for a customer that suits their unique requirements and the requirements of the property and environment.  We have designed septic systems for customers recently in Berlin, Bellingham, Rochester, and Attleboro, MA.  If you require a septic design or if you have any questions please do contact our office at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Cesspool Services by Down to Earth Construction

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services have experience working with customers whose properties have cesspools. 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.  Cesspools must be treated to avoid harmful chemicals from forming and also to empty the pool.  This is the reason which makes a cesspool require a high cost of maintenance. Cesspools can also be harmful.  For example, if the cesspool is kept at a very deep level, it may come in contact with groundwater and contaminate it making it unsafe for drinking purposes. That is why cesspools are kept quite far away from the wells and underground water sources.  The cesspools may also prove to be dangerous because of the fact that the waste material may give rise to dangerous fumes.  We are starting a cesspool replacement today for a customer in Upton, MA whose cesspool failed a Title 5 Inspection because it was too close to a public water supply.  Title 5 does not require all Cesspools to be replaced but it does state that:

 

“ those cesspools that 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 will need to be upgraded (310 CMR 15.303). Also, cesspools must be upgraded prior to an increase in design flow (e.g., the addition of a bedroom to a home or seats to a restaurant).” – The Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs Massachusetts.
We also have cesspool services for customers in Bridgewater, Stoughton, Canton, Freetown, and Sharon, MA.  If you have a cesspool and are either considering a replacement or need a service please do contact our office at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Also, cesspools must be upgraded prior to an increase in design flow (e.g., the addition of a bedroom to a home or seats to a restaurant).”

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.

Always consider your septic system when you use your drains and if you are unsure please do contact our office for more information.
