Septic Services Including Septic Repairs And Septic Upgrades Year Round

Down to Earth Construction Services provide our septic services to our customers year round, even in the winter time! Today we have septic repairs and septic upgrades scheduled for customers in Bellingham, Blackstone, Upton and Franklin MA . We are adding a riser to the outlet of a septic tank for a customer in Oxford MA. Adding risers, covers and filters to your septic system will improve its effectiveness. When your septic system is more accessible, it is also much safer and more attractive. These goals can be achieved through the use of strong, durable risers and system covers. Once installed, homeowners are able to provide easy access to the system for future septic repairs, septic upgrades or cleaning services, eliminating the need to dig and excavate the system each time it needs to be pumped. Another septic upgrade we can provide to customers is the addition of a effluent filter. Engineers, scientists and educators in the septic industry suggest that property owners install an effluent filter in the outlet tee of their septic tank to extend the life of their system. Due to the high cost associated with replacing a septic system, these seemingly small upgrades to your system will pay off in a big way. If you would be interested in septic system upgrades or if you need a septic repair please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit http://www.downtoearthconst.com

Cesspool Maintenance Sustains The Integrity Of The Environment

Down to Earth Construction Services has cesspool maintenance appointments today in Blackstone, Bellingham, Wrentham, Franklin and Uxbridge MA. 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 replacement when required. We recently replaced a cesspool for a customer in Norton 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 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. If you have any questions about septic system or need to have a septic repair please do contact our Norton Office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Cesspool replacement In Acushnet, MA

 

Down To Earth Construction Services are doing a cesspool replacement for a customer in Acushnet, MA today. 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.  Over time, when the drainage area around the leaching pool becomes saturated, additional pools may have to be dug to handle the volume. Cesspools must be treated to avoid harmful chemicals from forming and also to empty the pool which needs to be done regularly. This makes cesspools have high maintenance costs.

In Massachusetts Title 5 does not require Cesspools to be replaced:

“only 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

We provide cesspool services, pump out services and cesspool replacement if requested. We have worked with customers in Attleboro, Bridgewater, Raynham, Franklin and Marion MA recently to either replace cesspools which was required because of Title 5 or requested for financial or environmental reasons by the property owner. We have also conducted cesspool services and pumping.

If your property has a cesspool make sure that you work with a company that has extensive experience working with cesspools in Massachusetts. If you have any questions or need to arrange an appointment please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
