Down to Earth Construction Services Septic are always willing to provided to information to property owners who have septic systems. One piece of advice is always to not build over your septic system because it can impair your system and can be problematic if you should ever have a septic problem. This is certainly true for our customer today who has a home in Middleboro MA. We are having to move their deck to install a new septic tank for them. Unfortunately when they installed their back deck their contractor did not consider the septic tank underneath which has made a simple septic tank installation much more expensive and it will take longer because their deck needs to be removed to do the installation. Fortunately for our customer Down to Earth Construction Services have the tools and experience to do the removal, excavation and installation. We have recently installed other septic systems including new septic tanks for customers in Westport, Attleboro and Norton MA. If you require a new septic system, septic tank or any other septic work we are more than capable of assisting you and if you have any septic system questions or wish to schedule an appointment please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
Down to Earth Construction Services are enjoying the Fall and beautiful scenery it brings with leaves changing and apples and pumpkins galore. However in New England Fall storms are also unavoidable. It is something that we are all used to and stormy days do not stop us working. Today we have Title 5 Septic Inspections in Canton, Sharon, Stoughton, Foxboro, Mansfield and Franklin MA. However should a septic inspection not be able to take place the State of Massachusetts makes allowances
“If weather conditions prevent an inspection before a sale, Title 5 allows the inspection to be done up to 6 months afterwards, provided that the seller notifies the buyer in writing of the need to complete the inspection.”
If we do find that we have to rearrange an inspection we will endeavour to find a time and date that is convenient to your timeline and schedule.
If you need to have a Title 5 Septic Inspection or if you have any questions about septic systems or septic inspections please do contact our Norton Office on 508-622-5759 or visit Down to Earth Construction Services
Down to Earth Construction Services are able to use their substantial experience and knowledge in the septic industry in this region to design septic systems that are tailored made to fit the requirements of our customers and the property and environment that their system will be installed within. This local knowledge is important because we know the state and town regulations that must be followed to ensure that your septic system is compliant. We can provide a commercial septic design or residential septic design to our customers that fits their requirements. In addition to this we have come across and solved many issues that our unique landscape poses such as proximity to ocean front or wetlands or small plots or property situated on a slope. Because we have been in this industry for many years we have options to solve many of the problems that always arise with a septic system design because every property and the environment it is placed within is, to some extent, unique. Today we are providing a commercial septic design for a property in Wayland MA. We have recently provided other septic designs for commercial and residential customers in Fall River, Dighton and Uxbridge MA. If you require a septic design or if you have questions about septic designs or septic systems please do contact our office on 508-622-5759 or visit Down to Earth Construction Services

Down to Earth Construction Services have been contacted by a a property owner in Middleboro MA who needs a septic repair which entails having their septic tank baffles replaced. Broken septic tank baffles result from sulfuric acid eating away at concrete baffles or rust eating away at steel baffles. A septic tank has an inlet and outlet baffle. Usually these baffles are made from concrete and are part of the tank construction. The inlet baffle slows the flow of liquid entering the tank and decreases the turbulence allowing the solids to settle in the bottom of the tank. The outlet baffle helps to retain the solids and prevent them from leaving the tank and travelling to your drain field. A tank without an outlet baffle can compromise the longevity of your septic system and cause premature failure. We are experienced working with all parts and types of septic system so can quickly and with minimum disruption replace our client’s damaged baffles. We also have other septic repair appointments scheduled today in Carver, Bridgewater, Taunton, Raynham and Norton MA. If you require a septic repair or have questions about your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit Down to Earth Construction Services
Down to Earth Construction Services are completing a septic system installation in Norton MA today. We will be hydroseeding the installation location now that the excavation, installation and backfill has taken place. Hydroseeding is a very effective way to restore a lawn to a full and green state after we have excavated and installed a septic system. We will mix grass seed, fertilizer and mulch and then spray this mixture onto the prepared soil. We have an excellent reputation in the region for the quality of work that we provide and we ensure that our septic system installations are professionally done from the initial septic design or installation consultation to the final ground work to ensure that we leave our customers satisfied with our work from beginning to end.

Down to Earth Construction Services regularly carry out septic repairs and septic maintenance for customers on all types and parts of septic systems. Today we have pressure distribution maintenance, repairing laterals under the pavement and installing a filter for a customer in Rochester, MA. Septic tanks and drain fields have been used for many years but not all soil and site conditions work well for gravity septic systems. The pressure distribution system is one alternative that provides dosing and resting cycle, a uniform distribution of wastewater and shallow placement of the drainfield. Installing a filter from your wastewater into the septic tank will help to keep solids from clogging the pump and drainfield pipes. We also have other septic repairs and some septic maintenance scheduled today in Seekonk, Swansea, Freetown and Norton MA.

Down to Earth Construction Services know that spending money on your septic system, especially when Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up quicker than you’d think does not always seem to be a priority. Home maintenance, like septic repairs, is not a fun way to spend our hard earned money especially when it is not seen or enjoyed. However if you have a concern about your septic system it is wise to have it addressed immediately and not leave it until the holidays have passed and you want to be ‘bothered’ by it. Indicators that you may have a septic problem include:
Pipe Gurgling Sounds
Toilet Flushing Issues
Greener Grass on your leach field
Patches of Standing Water
If you have noticed one or more of these signs at your property please do consider calling to discuss your concerns with our experienced technicians. If a septic problem is left it is very unlikely to ‘fix itself’ and could quite possibly become a much larger and more expensive issue to repair. Today we have septic repairs scheduled in North Attleboro, Foxboro, Plainville, Wrentham, Norton and Attleboro MA. If you wish to schedule a septic repair or if you have septic questions or concerns please do contact us at our office on 508-622-5759 or visit Down to Earth Construction Services
Down to Earth Construction Services has qualified engineers working for us who can assist with your septic engineering needs. Today we have septic engineering appointments which include soil evaluations, septic design, land use planning, and construction layouts for large commercial developments and private homes in North Attleboro, Sharon, Wrentham, Plainville, Bellingham and Franklin MA. The soil evaluation or PERC test (percolation) that we have scheduled in North Attleboro is a soil test that is performed before installing a septic system tank. The perc test is extremely important because it measures the level of liquid absorption of the soil where the proposed septic tank will be located. It determines how quickly the material from the septic system will be absorbed into the soil.
If you are interested in our septic engineering services and how they can improve or repair your property please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit Down to Earth Construction Services
