Septic Improvements Including Installation Of Risers, Effluent Filters and Covers

Down to Earth Construction Services are here to help property owners with septic improvements in addition to maintaining and repairing their septic systems. Today we are installing septic risers for a customer in Attleboro MA. Most tank lids were buried up until a few years ago. Unfortunately out of sight is often out of mind and regular maintenance can be neglected if septic system components are buried. Once the risers are installed the homeowner will be able to provide easy access to the system for future repairs, upgrades or cleaning services, eliminating the need to dig and excavate the system each time it needs to be pumped. Down to Earth Construction Services can  add an access riser to each tank opening with the lid installed flush with the ground surface. Other septic improvements we offer homeowners are to 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 seemingly small upgrades to your system can pay off in a big way. We have recently provided septic system improvements and adjustments to other customers in Raynham, Upton and Holliston MA. If you are interested in septic improvements or have any questions about your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Septic System Inspections in Massachussetts

Down to Earth Construction Services have Massachusetts licensed septic inspectors and have been carrying out thorough and reliable septic system inspections in this region for over 25 years.  As stated by the Mass Gov Website Title 5 Septic Inspections are required:

 

  • Within 2 years before a sale. If weather conditions prevent inspection at the time of a sale, the inspection must take place within 6 months afterward.

  • When there is a proposed change to the facility which requires a building or occupancy permit.

  • Any change in the footprint of a building, to make sure that new building construction will not take place on top of any system components or on the system’s reserve area.

  • For large systems with a design flow of 10,000 to 15,000 gallons per day or more at full build-out, on the basin schedule shown in 310 CMR 15.301(6), and every five years thereafter.

  • Every 3 years for shared systems.

  • When the property is divided, or ownership of 2 or more properties is combined.

  • When MassDEP or the local Board of Health orders an inspection.

 

The majority of our inspections are for a property transfer, often scheduled by the seller but sometimes we provide an inspection for the buyer of a home with a septic system. Today we have septic system inspections scheduled in Wayland, Canton, Stoughton, Sharon and Holliston MA and most are for property transfers but one is for a voluntary assessment. Mass Gov States that”

 

“A system owner may choose voluntarily to have an assessment of the condition of the system even if there is no requirement for an inspection. Results of these voluntary assessments are solely for the use of the owner, and do not need to be submitted to local Boards of Health or MassDEP.”

 

For more information see: https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system

 

Property owners are likely to schedule a voluntary assessment of their septic system because the want to know its condition and see if maintenance or repairs are required. This is important because failing systems can:

 

  • cause a serious health threat to your family and neighbors,

  • degrade the environment, especially lakes, streams and groundwater,

  • reduce the value of your property,

  • be very expensive to repair,

  • and put thousands of water supply users at risk if you live in a public water supply watershed and fail to maintain your system


If you need to schedule a septic system inspection or assessment, for any reason, or if you have questions about septic inspections please do contact us at our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

We are doing a PERC (percolation) test today for a customer in Swansea MA. A perc test, or percolation test, is a soil test that is performed before installing a septic system tank. The perc test is extremely important because it measures the level of liquid absorption of the soil where the proposed septic tank will be located. It determines how quickly the material from the septic system will be absorbed into the soil. We have recently also provided  septic engineering services to clients in Holliston, Raynham and Taunton MA.
