Experienced Diagnosing Septic System Problems and Repairing Them

Down to Earth Construction Services is experienced diagnosing problems and repairing septic systems and leach fields/ drainfields. We have been called in for a leach field repair in Acushnet MA which has been caused by irregular pumping of the septic system. A septic tank should be pumped every 3 – 5 years depending on various factors including water usage and tank size. If the tank fills up with an excess of solids, the wastewater will not have enough time to settle in the tank. These excess solids will then pass on to the leach field, where they will clog the drain lines and soil. The property owner called us concerned because they had liquid puddling on their leach field and sewage smells coming from the drainfield.

We also have other septic repairs today in Middleboro, Taunton, Freetown, Lakeville and East Bridgewater MA.

If you are concerned that you may need a septic system repair, leach field or drainfield repair, septic pump repair or d-box repair please do contact our Norton office to discuss your concerns and to make an appointment if necessary on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

What is a Septic System?

All Clear Septic, septic system pump chamberDown to Earth Construction Services are always happy to answer questions customers have about their septic systems. Maybe the most important questions is ‘What is a septic system?

Septic systems are individual wastewater treatment systems (conventional septic systems, innovative/alternative (I/A) systems, or cesspools) that use the soil to treat small wastewater flows, usually from individual homes. They are typically used in rural or large lot settings where centralized wastewater treatment is impractical.

There are many types of septic systems in use today. While all systems are individually designed for each site, most systems are based on the same principles.

A conventional septic system consists of a septic tank, a distribution box and a drainfield, all connected by pipes, called conveyance lines.

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. This separation process is known as primary treatment. The solids stored in the tank are decomposed by bacteria and later removed, along with the lighter scum, by a professional septic tank pumper.

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 (secondary treatment). A properly functioning septic system does not pollute the groundwater. – Mass. Gov website.

However even knowing what a septic system is and how it works it is always inadvisable to carry out septic repairs and maintenance yourself. A reputable septic company will be happy to answer questions and discuss concerns you have and make an appointment for a repair if necessary. Today we have septic repairs scheduled for customers in Attleboro, Norton, Seekonk and Dighton MA. If you have questions or concerns about your septic system or you want to make an appointment please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
