Cesspool Services Ensure That Your Cesspool Continues To Operate Correctly

Down to Earth Construction Services work with many customers that don’t have conventional septic systems on their property but instead have a cesspool. As stated on the Mass Gov website:

“A cesspool is a pit which acts as both a settling chamber for solids and a leaching system for liquids. The use of cesspools may overload the capacity of the soil to remove bacteria, viruses, and phosphorus, and to nitrify ammonia and organic nitrogen compounds. A conventional septic system has a tank where solids can settle and begin to degrade, a distribution box, and a soil absorption system (SAS) that further treats the effluent by removing some of the bacteria, viruses, phosphorus, and nitrogen.”

Although cesspool are now not installed because there are more efficient and environmentally conscious alternatives Massachusetts does not always require cesspools to be replaced. They state that:

“Only those cesspools that exhibit signs of hydraulic failure, are located extremely close to private or public water supplies, or otherwise fail to protect or pose a threat to public health, safety or the environment will need to be upgraded (310 CMR 15.303). Also, cesspools must be upgraded prior to an increase in design flow (e.g., the addition of a bedroom to a home or seats to a restaurant).”

We provide cesspool services to customers so that they can ensure that their system continues to operate correctly. Today we have cesspool services scheduled in Foxboro, Franklin, Sharon, Mansfield, Wrentham and Norton MA.

Sewage Grinder Pump Repair To Ensure Customer Septic System Continues To Operate

Down to Earth Construction Services know that all parts of your septic system need to be operating to ensure that it is working efficiently and correctly. We have experience repairing all parts of your septic system should it become necessary, even the ones that sound unpleasant and awkward to fix. Some septic systems are fitted with a sewage grinder pump. Waste from water-using household appliances (toilets, bathtubs, washing machines, etc.) flows through your 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 central sewer system or septic tank. A sewage grinder pump does what the name suggests and is not something that you want to leave inoperative because more serious breakdowns and larger repairs may then be necessary. Today we are providing a sewage grinder pump repair for a customer in Wayland MA. We also have other septic repairs scheduled in Berlin, Bolton, Clinton, Southborough and Upton MA. If you require a septic repair or if you have concerns about your septic system please do contact our Norton office where we will be happy to answer any questions you have an book an appointment if necessary on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Septic Repairs Provided Today Including A D-Box Replacement in North Attleboro

All Clear Septic, septic system pump chamberDown to Earth Construction Services is replacing a D-Box for a customer today in North Attleboro, MA. A septic distribution box  (D-Box) is a container used to receive septic system effluent from a septic tank and to re-distribute the effluent into a network of attached drainfield or soakaway bed absorption trenches and pipes. The D-box works by gravity, flowing effluent into the drainfield (or leach field) piping network. It must be installed correctly to ensure that it  distributes evenly. However to keep your system working correctly you must also maintain it and the best way to do this is to have your system regularly pumped and to use your septic system correctly. The following are some steps that you can take to ensure that you maintain your septic system:

 

  • Minimize the use of the garbage disposal

  • Do not put grease down your drains

  • Spread loads of laundry out over time rather than doing multiple loads in a short period of time, and use liquid detergents rather than powdered detergents

  • Avoid excessively long showers

  • Avoid leaving tap water running when shaving, brushing teeth or doing other personal or household tasks

  • Do not flush medications, harmful chemicals, excessive amounts of bleach, harsh drain cleaners or degreasers

  • Have the septic tank pumped at least every three years

  • Do not add any septic systems cleaners, enzymes or additives

  • Remove water conditioning backwash discharges from the septic system

  • Do not plant trees and shrubs over leach fields

  • Do not flush personal products, paper towels, wipes or diapers

  • Do not clean or rinse paint brushes in the sinks

  • Equip all hot tubs, spas, whirlpool baths, etcetera with drain limiting valves that will only allow five gallons per minute to drain from fixture

  • Do not drive vehicles over leach fields

 

We also have septic repairs for customers today in Berlin, Bolton, Clinton and Southborough MA. Many of these repairs could have been avoided if the property owners had followed some of the above advice.
