Experts in Septic Design, Installation and Inspection

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services had a septic system installation in Rochester, MA starting yesterday.  Our client  initially needed a septic design for a septic system because they needed to replace a failing cesspool on their property.  We have the experience and knowledge to provide a septic design that was tailored to their individual needs and those of their property. Yesterday we started the septic system installation because our client chose to continue to use our services. They are confident in our professionalism and ability to install their system quickly and correctly with minimum disruption.  We have the equipment and operators for the excavation,  groundworks and total installation without needing to use a subcontractor so we can ensure that the installation is done to our exacting standards. We will also provide regular septic system services following the installation. We have recent experience with septic system installations in Oxford, Uxbridge, Marlborough, and Mattapoisett, MA.  If you need a septic system installation or if you have any questions please do contact us.

Down to Earth Construction Services also have septic inspections scheduled today in Berkley, Dighton, Norton, Freetown, Fall River, Fairhaven, Acushnet, and Mattapoisett, MA.  Most of the septic inspections that we do are for properties which are being sold.  However, we also have an inspection today for a property which has had an addition which included two bedrooms.  As specified by The Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs of Massachusetts:

“A system must be inspected upon any change of use or increase in design flow, BUT ONLY IF the change or expansion also requires a building permit or occupancy permit from the local building inspector. Examples include adding a bedroom to a house, adding seats to a restaurant, or changing the type of business operating at a commercial location. Check with the Building Department and/or Board of Health to find out if your situation requires a building or occupancy permit which will trigger a system inspection.

 

Any change in the footprint of a building also requires an inspection to determine the location of the system, to ensure that construction will not be located on top of any system components or on the reserve area. If official records are available to determine the location of the system components, this requirement may be waived. Check with your local Board of Health.

Title 5 Inspections with Down to Earth Construction

Down to EarthDown to Earth Construction Services has Title 5 Septic Inspection appointments today in Wayland, Marlborough, Berlin, Clinton, Southborough, and Oxford, MA.  When you are selling a property with a septic system, it is likely to need a septic inspection.  It is usually a good idea to have this inspection done early in your sale process because you will not want it to create delays later on.  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, if you have your inspection done early it will still be valid even if your sale takes some time.  If you need to schedule a Title 5 Septic Inspection or if you have any questions please do contact our office at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

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
