Voluntary Septic Assessment in Sharon

Down to Earth Construction Services conducts hundreds of septic inspections each year for property owners who are selling their home or business and are not on town sewer. This is because in the state of Massachusetts a septic inspection is 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”

However not all inspections that we carryout are for people who are selling a property. We have a voluntary septic assessment today for a property owner in Sharon MA who wants to have a greater understanding of the condition of their septic system. As specified on the Mass Gov website:

 

“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.”


We also have septic inspections today in Marion, Mattapoisett, Fall River, Mansfield and Rehoboth MA. If you require a septic inspection, for any reason, a voluntary septic assessment or if you have questions about your septic system please do contact us at our Norton Office on 508-622-5759 or visit Down to Earth Construction Services

Septic System Services To Prevent An Unexpected Septic Breakdown

This is especially important for our commercial customers with restaurants because a problem with their septic system can have large repercussions to their business. You will also be increasing the longevity of your septic system which will be an expensive item to replace if it fails. We service our septic system clients on a quarterly, biannual or annual basis depending to the septic system and usage.

Cesspool Replacement to North Attleboro

Down to Earth Construction Services are doing a cesspool replacement for a customer in North Attleboro, 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, Marion and Westport 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 you need a cesspool service or pump out, cesspool replacement or if you have questions about our services please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit Down to Earth Construction Services

Drain Field Septic Repair Necessary In Rochester Due To Roots

Down to Earth Construction Services have expertise in many areas so that we can bring our customers the best possible septic services. For example we need landscaping and plant knowledge because septic systems, very often, are located in a customers yard with the landscaping and planting one would expect. However it is this landscaping that can cause problems. For example trees often have root systems that go far beyond what a homeowner expected when they first planted a tree seedling. Roots can infiltrate a septic drain field and really cause a lot of trouble. Roots even tend to grow toward drain fields because it is their job to find water for the tree. Today we are providing a drain field septic repair for a customer in Rochester MA whose tree roots have caused damage to the piping that is necessary for their leach field to work correctly. It is really advisable to only have grass growing on your leach field and not plant large bushes or trees on it to prevent these sorts or septic repairs being necessary. We also have other septic repair appointments in Mattapoisett, Marion, Fairhaven and Lakeville MA. If you require a septic repair or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit Down to Earth Construction Services

Septic Repairs Can Often Be Avoided By Using Your System Correctly

Down to Earth Construction Services know that septic systems have to be used correctly for them to continue to work efficiently and function as they should. A large part of this is is just knowing what is being introduced to your septic system and making sure that anything that goes into it is appropriate and wont adversely affect your system. All wastewater makes its way to your septic system and everything that goes into your sink, toilet, washing machine and shower/bath will also get introduced into your septic system. Keep the following items out of your septic system to prevent problems:

 

  • paper towels

  • kitty litter

  • plastics

  • cooking oils or grease

  • disposable diapers

  • feminine hygiene products

  • any/all latex products

  • hazardous chemicals, pesticides and latex-based paints

  • water purification back flush

 

It is important to note, however, that each system is unique. Check with your septic system installer or manufacturer for a complete list of items that should not make their way into your system for maximum efficiency. There are also many other things that should stay out of your system and there is no way that we can list all of the items. We have found toys, dead fish, clothing and jewellery in septic systems and all of these items were causing a problem that led to us investigating the cause. Simply put if you are not sure do not put it in your wastewater. We have septic repairs scheduled today in Carver, Middleboro, Marshfield, Marion and Rochester MA. One of these repairs is necessary because the homeowner was unaware of the large volume of sand that was being introduced to their septic system via the washing machine and shower by their teenage children. It is wise to make sure that your entire family and visitors know that you have a septic system and there are certain, easily followed guidelines to follow to make sure you do not require a septic repair from our talented technicians. If however you do suspect that you require a septic repair or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit Down to Earth Construction Services


Septic Services Can Take The Worry From Septic System Maintenance

Down to Earth Construction Services know that many people who own a vehicle will schedule a service for their car when the service indicators come on or carry out their car maintenance themselves. As car owners we accept that maintaining our car is going to cost money but we use our vehicles daily so they need to be well maintained. The same is true for your septic system. There aren’t many properties that do not see their septic systems used daily. However a septic system is not the same as your car and many property owners turn to professionals, like Down to Earth Construction Services, to take care of their septic services. We have commercial and residential customers who rely upon us to take care of their septic systems so they do not need to worry about them. This is especially true for commercial customers who lose revenue when their septic system is not working. We will schedule septic services for our customers on a quarterly, biannual or annual basis depending on their septic system and the usage it gets. For example a busy restaurant that is open year round will need a service more frequently than a cafe that is only open in the summer ‘season’. Today we have septic services scheduled in Marion, Mattapoisett, Rochester, Acushnet, Freetown and Fairhaven MA. If you would be interested in scheduling a septic service or if you have any questions about septic systems or our septic services please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit Down to Earth Construction Services
