Your Leach Field Is As Important As Your Septic Tank To Your Septic System

Down to Earth Construction Services have been contacted by a customer in North Attleboro who requires a leach field repair. Many septic system problems are actually problems associated with the leach field and not the septic tank. Most people who have a septic system know they have a septic tank and where it is located but many do not realize the importance of a leach field to their septic system. Here are some ways to avoid problems:

  • Never park a car or heavy equipment over your leach field.
  • Don’t have heavy items or traffic on your leach field
  • Have your septic tank pumped regularly (every 3-5 years usually). Sludge overload near the drain field can result in sulfite and bio-mat buildup
  • Don’t pour grease, oil or fats down your sink
  • Never plant any new trees or large plants or bushes near your leach field

 

We have other septic repairs scheduled in Plainville, Wrentham, Rehoboth, Seekonk and Norton MA. If you have a concern about your septic system or if you require a septic repair please contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

  • 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.

Most of the inspections that we carry out for property owners are for people who are selling their property and need their septic to be inspected before Title transfer can take place. However what some people do not realize is that we also carry out voluntary septic assessments. Property owners can hire a licensed inspector to perform Confidential Voluntary Septic Assessments of their septic systems. These inspections are completed just as they would be according to the Title 5 Inspections required by the State of Massachusetts, but the findings are NOT reported to any other person, municipality or office outside of the homeowner. Once the inspection is complete, the homeowner will receive a thorough report along with an assessment of the findings and some recommendations on how to properly maintain or repair their septic system. The recommendations provided by Down to Earth Construction Services are designed to increase longevity and prevent future issues, such as property damage, high cost repairs or system replacement.

 

In addition to the above inspections we also have a voluntary septic assessment scheduled for a customer today in Norton MA.

 

If you require a septic inspection or voluntary septic assessment please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com where we will be happy to help you.


Septic Repairs Including a D-Box Replacement

Down to Earth Construction Services are regularly called out to client properties to provide septic system repairs. Today we have a d-box replacement for a customer in Attleboro MA. The d-box, or distribution box, essentially connects the septic tank to your leach field or drain field. It ensures that the separated effluent is evenly ‘distributed’ over your leach field where it harmlessly enters your soil. If your d-box is broken or incorrectly installed this process will not happen correctly which can result in bad smells or puddling in your yard resulting from your waste not being treated correctly. You could also see back ups in your interior plumbing, sewage smells or slow running drains. All of these are indicators that you have a septic problem which you should have addressed immediately. A small septic problem can quickly become a large and expensive septic repair or failure if it is ignored. We also have septic repairs today in Seekonk, Fall River, Swansea and Rehoboth MA. If you require a septic repair or if you have any questions about septic systems please contact our Norton Office on 508-622-5759 or visit http://www.downtoearthconst.com

Septic System Installation To Replace A Cesspool

Septic Preservation Services has a septic system Installation starting today in Franklin MA. We were contacted by a property owner who had recently inherited an older property with a failing cesspool which was processing the home’s wastewater. To enable them to easily and quickly sell the property for a good price they decided that it would be advantageous to replace the cesspool for a new, efficient septic system. A cesspool is a pit which acts as both a settling chamber for solids and a leaching system for liquids. A conventional septic system has a tank where solids can settle and begin to degrade, a distribution box, and a soil absorption system (SAS) that further treats the effluent by removing some of the bacteria, viruses, phosphorus, and nitrogen. We have the equipment and expertise to replace a cesspool with a septic system without having to rely upon subcontractors for equipment or operators. We can therefore ensure that all of the work is done to our own high standards. If you require a septic system installation, need to replace a cesspool or if you have any questions about septic systems or cesspools please do contact our Norton Office on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com where we would be happy to help you.
