Septic Repairs Including a D-Box Repair in Westport

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services is replacing a D-Box for a customer today in Westport, 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. You must also maintain your septic system 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

Be Aware Of The Signs That You Need To Schedule Septic Pumping

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services has septic pumping scheduled for customers in Hudson, Acton, Wayland, Stow, Maynard, Southborough and Clinton MA today. Signs that your septic system may need a septic pump out include your toilets backing up when there is no apparent reason for it and sewage smells coming from your plumbing. If there is overflow by your tank this is also a sign your system needs maintenance. Some systems even have an alarm which could be a noise or a light to indicate that it is time for septic pumping. All of these can be signs that a pump out could be necessary and it is always worth investigating because you may have a problem or need septic pumping. Most homeowners with septic systems are aware that their system needs septic pumping every 3 -5 years but this can vary depending on various factors including the size of your tank and the water usage. For example if you have a garbage disposal which you use regularly you will need to have your septic tank pumped annually. Please be aware of the signs that your system needs pumping and if you have any questions, concerns or need to schedule septic pumping please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com
