Risers and Your Septic System

What are risers, and why should I have them on my septic system?

Enclosed septic system with risers used by Septic Preservation Services

Risers on a septic system are the access points through which a person servicing your septic system can see inside the tank.  In the image below you see the three tubes rising from the top of the system.  Those are the risers.  The top is generally put at ground level for easiest access.  Some systems do not have risers built into them.  When there are no risers present, anyone trying service the system will have to resort to digging holes in the yard to find the access points to the tank. In some cases it is necessary to bring in excavation equipment if the ground proves too difficult to dig by hand.

If you are given the option to add risers to your system, it would be beneficial to anyone servicing the system in the future if you made sure they are put into place before the system is covered over.  Your servicemen will thank you, especially if you call Septic Preservation Services to inspect or service your tank!

Septic Repairs By Down to Earth Construction Services

Down to Eartha  Septic Repairs are sometimes necessary because a septic system suffers expected wear and tear like any other system. However some repairs can be avoided if you are aware of what you introduce into your septic system and make some commonsense changes to your habits to ensure that you aren’t adding substances that can clog or damage your system. For example don’t pour cooking grease, fat or oil down your sink.  Don’t flush baby wipes or ‘flushable’ wipes because they may clog your system.  Simple changes such as these can help prevent costly repairs and extend the life of your septic system.  If you have any questions or need to arrange septic repairs please do contact our office at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Winter and Your Septic System

winterWinter is here to stay.  Winter can cause some strain on your septic system.  With winter, comes snow.  Snow is actually a good insulator to keep  your system from freezing.  Make sure you don’t drive over your septic system.  This is especially true in winter.  Driving over your septic system can compact the snow and drive it deeper into the ground.

Normal use keeps your septic system from freezing.  Beware if you own a vacation or summer house.  With sporadic use or no use throughout the winter, there is a possibility of freezing.  Sporadic use can help keep this from happening.

Regular use and common sense can keep your septic system running smoothly throughout the winter.  Check for leaks in the plumbing so unnecessary water is not saturating the system.  Be careful of food products going down the drain as well as bleach and toxic cleaners.  Use single ply toilet paper and try not to overload the paper products in  the toilets.

When spring thaw hits. try to limit your water usage not to overload the system.  Space out your loads of wash and dishwasher cycles.  Cut back on showers and long, hot tubs. This will help the melting snow not overload your system.

Septic Preservation Services has a great maintenance program to keep your septic system running smoothly.  Call them with all your septic questions.  They can find a solution to any of your problems and answer all your questions.
