Septic Tank Replacement by Down to Earth Construction

Down to Earth

Down to Earth Construction Experts at Cesspools

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services has extensive experience with not just conventional septic systems, but also with cesspools, cesspool repair, cesspool services, and cesspool replacement. As stated on the Massachusetts Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs:

 

“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.”

 

To sell a property you usually need a Title 5 Inspection to be done, but there are exceptions and for those, check the website or call our office. Title 5 does not require that cesspools be replaced however.  The Massachusetts Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs states:

 

“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”.

Down to Earth Constructions Has Septic Installation

Down to EarthDown to Earth Construction Services has a Septic Installation starting today in Acushnet, MA for our client whose septic system has failed a Title 5 Inspection, and has decided to replace their system before putting their home on the market to sell.  As stated on the Massachusetts Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs:

 

“The owner or operator of the system is the legally responsible party required to upgrade a failing system.  Prior to transfer of the property, this is typically the seller.  Often, the buyer and seller work out the financial issues as part of the sale of the property.  Title 5 does not require that a system be in passing condition prior to the sale, but most lenders will not issue a mortgage until the failing system is upgraded or funds to perform the upgrade are escrowed.”
Our client wisely chose to have their septic system inspected early and want to have the system replaced prior to sale, so they do not have to make financial allowances later on to their buyer for a failed septic system or lose buyers who do not want to take on a property with a failed septic system.  We have extensive experience with septic system installations for many clients including recently in Attleboro, Norton, Stoughton, Swansea, and Marshfield, MA.  If you need a septic system installation or if you have questions please do contact our office at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Cesspool Services by Down to Earth Construction

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services have experience working with customers whose properties have cesspools. 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.  Cesspools must be treated to avoid harmful chemicals from forming and also to empty the pool.  This is the reason which makes a cesspool require a high cost of maintenance. Cesspools can also be harmful.  For example, if the cesspool is kept at a very deep level, it may come in contact with groundwater and contaminate it making it unsafe for drinking purposes. That is why cesspools are kept quite far away from the wells and underground water sources.  The cesspools may also prove to be dangerous because of the fact that the waste material may give rise to dangerous fumes.  We are starting a cesspool replacement today for a customer in Upton, MA whose cesspool failed a Title 5 Inspection because it was too close to a public water supply.  Title 5 does not require all Cesspools to be replaced but it does state that:

 

“ 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).” – The Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs Massachusetts.
We also have cesspool services for customers in Bridgewater, Stoughton, Canton, Freetown, and Sharon, MA.  If you have a cesspool and are either considering a replacement or need a service please do contact our office at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
