Septic Pumps and Septic Alarms

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services are installing a septic pump and septic alarm for a customer in Uxbridge, MA.  A septic pump moves wastewater from a septic pump tank to a drainfield, and septic systems with these pumps should also have a septic alarm.  The septic alarm will usually go off if wastewater is not being pumped to the drainfield as it should be.  It will signal if water has risen to an irregular level indicating a septic problem.  Down to Earth Construction Services has, in stock, many septic pumps with septic alarms, so if you need to have your pump replaced or if you need a septic alarm, we can install one on short notice.  We have installed septic pumps and septic pump alarms for customs recently in Berlin, Holliston, Carver, Oxford, Clinton, Marion and Marshfield, MA.  If you need a septic pump or septic pump and septic alarm repair or installation, please do contact our office to schedule an appointment at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.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.
