Septic Inspections and Voluntary Septic Assessments

Down to Earth Construction Services conducts hundreds of septic inspections each year for property owners who are selling their home or business and are 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”

 

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

 

However not all inspections that we carryout are for people who are selling a property. We have a voluntary assessment today for a property owner in Mansfield 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 Norton, Taunton, Stoughton, Sharon and Foxboro MA. If you require a septic inspection, for any reason, or if you have questions about your septic system please do contact us at our Norton Office on 508-622-5759 or visit http://www.downtoearthconst.com

Septic System Design For Norton Property

Down to Earth Construction Services are providing a septic system design for a customer in Norton MA. All Septic Systems are designed specifically for their own site and have variances which make them unique but most systems are based on the same principles. A conventional septic system consists of a septic tank, a distribution box and a drainfield. Your septic system treats your household wastewater by temporarily holding it in the septic tank where heavy solids and lighter scum are allowed to separate from the wastewater. The solids stored in the tank are decomposed by bacteria and later pumped out. After partially treated wastewater leaves the tank, it flows into a distribution box, which separates this flow evenly into a network of drainfield trenches. Drainage holes at the bottom of each line allow the wastewater to drain into gravel trenches for temporary storage. This effluent then slowly seeps into the subsurface soil where it is further treated and purified. We have many years experience working in this region and know not only the state septic requirements but also those of the individual towns that we work in. Therefore we can help prevent delays for our customers which often happens if a septic design is not correct or doesn’t follow town BOH regulations. We have recently provided septic designs for customers in Berlin, Lakeville, Upton and Attleboro MA. If you need a septic system design or if you have septic questions please do contact our office in 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com


Septic Design For Both Commercial And Residential Properties

Down to Earth Construction Services are experienced working with both commercial and residential customers in this region. This is important because the septic system for a busy restaurant will necessarily be different to that for a small seasonal holiday cottage. Both of these customers septic systems will work on the same basic principles however. A conventional septic system consists of a septic tank, a distribution box and a drainfield. Your septic system treats your household wastewater by temporarily holding it in the septic tank where heavy solids and lighter scum are allowed to separate from the wastewater. The solids stored in the tank are decomposed by bacteria and later pumped out. After partially treated wastewater leaves the tank, it flows into a distribution box, which separates this flow evenly into a network of drainfield trenches. Drainage holes at the bottom of each line allow the wastewater to drain into gravel trenches for temporary storage. This effluent then slowly seeps into the subsurface soil where it is further treated and purified. The size and system itself will have variances however which will be specific to the requirements of our customer. These will vary depending on a variety of factors including the environment, the use of the system and budget of our client. Today we have a septic design meeting with a commercial customer whose property is located in North Attleboro MA. We have recently provided septic system designs for residential and commercial customers in Marshfield, Berlin and East Bridgewater MA. If you require a septic design or if you have any questions about septic system designs or septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Sewage Grinder Pump Repair in Attleboro MA

Down to Earth Construction Services have been called to a customer’s property in Attleboro MA to repair their sewage grinder pump. This doesn’t sound especially appealing but has an important role in their septic system so needs to be operating correctly. A sewage grinder pump is a wastewater conveyance device. Waste from water using household appliances (toilets, bathtubs, washing machines etc) flows through the home’s pipes into the grinder pump’s holding tank. Once the wastewater inside the tank reaches a specific level, the pump will turn on, grind the waste into a fine slurry, and pump it to the septic tank. We have extensive experience with septic systems and repairing different elements of them including d-boxes, septic pumps and drain fields/ leachfields. We also provide septic upgrades and improvements such as the addition of risers, covers and effluent filters. The addition of an effluent filter in the outlet tee of your septic tank can extend the life of your septic system. Once installed risers and system covers enable homeowners 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. We are also at a customer property in Norton MA installing a septic system cover today in addition to providing septic repairs in Rochester and Lakeville MA.

Monthly Safety Meeting at Our Norton Office

Down to Earth Construction Services had its monthly safety meeting today at its Norton Office with all our technicians attending. The safety of our staff and customers is of utmost importance and we make sure that we stay ahead of safety training and developments in the industry.

Our aim at Down to Earth Construction Services is to ensure that all of our technicians, office staff and customers are safe and that we have the knowledge and equipment to ensure it.
