Septic Repairs Can Prevent a Failing Septic System Causing Serious Problems

Down to Earth Construction Services know that although there are many types of septic systems in use today they are all designed for each site and mostly work on the same principles. A conventional septic system consists of a septic tank, a distribution box and a drain field, all connected by pipes, called conveyance lines. Your home’s wastewater flows into your septic tank where it is held and solids sink to the bottom and lighter scum floats to the top. The solids and scum are decomposed by bacteria and periodically pumped. The treated wastewater or effluent flows through the distribution box into your drain field or leach field where it 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. However a failing septic system can have many unpleasant repercussions as stated on the Mass Gov website:

“Failing systems can

  • cause a serious health threat to your family and neighbors,
  • degrade the environment, especially lakes, streams and groundwater,
  • reduce the value of your property,
  • be very expensive to repair,
  • and put thousands of water supply users at risk if you live in a public water supply watershed and fail to maintain your system.”

Septic Alarms Installed and Investigated

Down to Earth Construction Services are experienced working with septic systems and because we have extensive knowledge of septic systems we can use this to diagnose septic problems to find the source of the issue and to carry out a septic repair when required. Today we are installing a septic alarm for a customer in Lakeville MA who wants to have this safeguard inplace to notify them if they have a septic issue that needs to be addressed. This septic alarm is required because their septic system has a septic pump which moves wastewater from the septic tank to the drain field or leach field. If the septic pump is not operating correctly the septic alarm will turn on. We also have an appointment for a customer in Rochester MA who has noticed that their septic alarm is on and they need a septic specialist to locate the problem and fix their septic system. We have extensive experience repairing and replacing septic pumps including Blue Diamond, Hiblow and FujiClean pumps. If you require a septic repair, septic improvement or have any questions about your septic system or septic alarms please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Down to Earth Construction Services Providing Thorough And Reliable Septic Inspections

Down to Earth Construction Services have certified septic inspectors with the most up to date equipment who are ready to provide our customers with thorough, reliable septic inspections. If your property is not on town sewer it is essential that your septic system is working correctly to ensure that your waste is being processed correctly. Also when you are selling a property Title 5 requires a septic inspection to have been done within the last two years. Unless you have a new home or bought your property in the last two years this will usually mean that you will need to have a septic inspection carried out before Title to the property can be transferred. The benefit is that once you have had the inspection done it is good for two years so you can have the inspection carried out at the start of your selling process so once it is completed that is a selling point and wont cause delays later on. So it is always advisable to have your septic inspection done as soon as you decide you are selling your property. Other benefits of an inspection include:

 

  • Keeping you informed of the status of your septic system. Your system must be maintained to ensure it continues to operate correctly. The inspection will notify you if it is time to have your septic pumped or for any other maintenance

 

  • An Inspection will identify any repairs that need to be done to your system. Spotting small septic problems can result in a quick, easy and inexpensive repair in contrast to a large, messy and expensive repair if a problem is left to get more extensive.

 

  • If you are selling your property it provides a home buyer with a detailed report of the location and condition of your septic system components at the time of the inspection.The data collected assists the home buyer with their purchasing decision.

 

Today we have septic inspections scheduled in Wayland, Marlborough, Bolton, Clinton, Upton and Oxford MA. If you live in Massachusetts and you have a septic system servicing your property and need a septic inspection or if you have any questions about septic inspections please do contact us at our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

 

 

Septic Services Make Septic System Maintenance Easy

Down To Earth Construction Services knows that proper preventative maintenance can extend the life of your septic system. Systems that are not regularly maintained will average less than 20 years, however studies conducted by field professors, scientists and engineers reveal that proper maintenance can help a septic system to last indefinitely. This can save homeowners thousands of dollars over a lifetime.

 

Our septic services give our residential and commercial clients peace of mind in knowing that their septic system is being properly maintained, checked and monitored. Today we have septic services for those customers in Freetown, Berkley, Dighton, Acushnet and Lakeville MA

 

We provide our customers on a service contract with regular monitoring of the entire septic system. We service septic systems in a quarterly, biannual or annual basis depending on the septic system and the needs of our client. For example a busy restaurant’s septic system will require more regular services that a small home belonging to a retired couple. Once an appointment has been scheduled our customers do not even usually need to be home for the service which makes septic system maintenance as hassle free as possible. If you would be interested in a septic service or if you have any questions about septic systems or septic system maintenance please contact us at our Norton Office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
