Down to Earth Construction Services have septic inspections today in Acushnet, Freetown, Rochester, Mattapoisett, Marion, Carver and Middleboro, MA. If you are selling a property in Massachusetts with a septic system, you are likely to need a Title 5 Inspection to be carried out. Inspections required in connection with a property transfer generally are good for two years. If a property is sold more than once in the two-year period, the single inspection is valid for all transfers. When a system is pumped on an annual basis and the pumping records are available, an inspection is valid for three years. So unless you are selling within 2 years of buying the property or you have had it pumped annually you will need a Septic Inspection to be done before you can transfer Title. If you want to schedule a septic inspection or if you have any further questions please do contact our office at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
Down to Earth Construction Services have Title 5 Septic Inspections scheduled today in Swansea, Seekonk, Fall River, Marion, Mattapoisett, Acushnet, Dighton and Taunton, MA. If you are selling a property with a septic system you are likely to need a septic inspection before you can transfer property title . However at this time of year if weather conditions prevent an inspection before a sale, Title 5 allows the inspection to be done up to six months afterwards, provided that the seller notifies the buyer in writing of the need to complete the inspection. For more information see the Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.
For this reason Down to Earth Construction Services would recommend if you are selling a property that is not on town sewer and has a septic system that you do the inspection at the start of your sale process. Inspections required in connection with a property transfer generally are good for two years. If a property is sold more than once in the two-year period, the single inspection is valid for all transfers. When a system is pumped on an annual basis and the pumping records are available, an inspection is valid for three years. Therefore, you are unlikely to need to redo the inspection if you have it done early and having the inspection done early could prevent any delays later on caused by unexpected events such as a snowstorm, which are always possible in Massachusetts in the winter. If you need to schedule a Title 5 Septic Inspection or have any questions please do contact our office at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

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.

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
What are risers, and why should I have them on my septic system?
Risers on a septic system are the access points through which a person servicing your septic system can see inside the tank. In the image below you see the three tubes rising from the top of the system. Those are the risers. The top is generally put at ground level for easiest access. Some systems do not have risers built into them. When there are no risers present, anyone trying service the system will have to resort to digging holes in the yard to find the access points to the tank. In some cases it is necessary to bring in excavation equipment if the ground proves too difficult to dig by hand.
If you are given the option to add risers to your system, it would be beneficial to anyone servicing the system in the future if you made sure they are put into place before the system is covered over. Your servicemen will thank you, especially if you call Septic Preservation Services to inspect or service your tank!
