Cesspool Repacement

Septic Preservation Services Septic Preservation 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 is the reason which makes a cesspool require a high cost of maintenance.

 

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, Sturbridge, Marion and Westford, MA recently to either replace cesspools which were 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 office at 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

Septic Repairs

Septic Preservation Services Septic Preservation Services have septic repairs scheduled today in Bellingham, Blackstone, Wrentham, Franklin, Holliston, Millis, Canton and Stoughton, MA.  We have experience with a vast range of septic repairs including septic pump repair, E One pump repair, leach field repair and D-Box repair We can also suggest courses of action that may prevent these repairs from being necessary again in the future. If a septic system is not used correctly, repairs and sometimes system failures can happen and often some simple changes can avoid this.  Property owners need to be aware of all the liquids and solids that are introduced into their septic system. 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.
