Cesspool Replacements and Cesspool Services Provided

Down to Earth Construction Services have been contacted by a customer in Wrentham MA who require a cesspool replacement. We also have cesspool services scheduled today in Bellingham, Blackstone, Franklin, Upton and Uxbridge MA. As stated on Mas Gov:

“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 need a Title 5 Inspection to be done. Title 5 does not require that cesspools be replaced however:

“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”.

Cesspool Maintenance Sustains The Integrity Of The Environment

Down to Earth Construction Services has cesspool maintenance appointments today in Blackstone, Bellingham, Wrentham, Franklin and Uxbridge MA. A cesspool is any pit or container that receives wastewater from a house or building. The term “cesspool” is usually used to refer to an open pit that is lined with rocks or concrete, but an underground tank or holding container that is not connected to a drainfield can also be defined as a cesspool. The main function of cesspools is the storage of wastewater. 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 are only found servicing older properties because other more efficient means of waste treatment are now available. We provide cesspool services and repairs and have also provided cesspool replacement when required. We recently replaced a cesspool for a customer in Norton MA because it was starting to pollute the local groundwater. Ongoing maintenance of your cesspool by having it serviced and having pumpouts is especially important because to sustain the integrity of the environment you need to ensure your cesspool is operating correctly and the surrounding area is not saturated. If you have any questions about cesspools or wish to schedule a cesspool service please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Title 5 Septic Inspections for Property Sales

 

Down to Earth Construction Services have Title 5 septic inspections today in Bellingham, Upton, Uxbridge, Wrentham and Blackstone MA.

As stated on the Massachusetts official website for the executive office of Energy and Environmental Affairs “The purpose of the inspection is to provide sufficient information to determine if the system in its current condition can protect public health and the environment. The inspection does not guarantee that the system will continue to function adequately, or that the system will not fail at a later date. This is a particularly important point to remember if you plan to significantly increase the flow to the system.”

A septic inspection is generally required within two years prior to the sale of a property and we are usually contacted by property owners who are selling so need their septic system to be inspected before Title transfer can take place. We are sometimes contacted by home buyers because prior to transfer of title the buyer can take responsibility for the inspection as long as this is specified in a written contract and it occurs within the specified time frame. If you require a septic inspection or if you have any questions about Title 5 Septic inspections please do contact our office. You can reach us at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
