All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services are experienced working with septic systems and because we have extensive knowledge of septic systems we can use this to diagnose septic problems to find the source of the problem and to carry out a septic repair when required. Today we are installing a septic alarm for a customer in Rochester MA who wants to have this safeguard inplace to notify them if they have a septic issue that needs to be addressed. This septic alarm is in place because their septic system has a septic pump which moves wastewater from the septic tank to the drain field or leach field. If the septic pump is not operating correctly the septic alarm will turn on. We also have an appointment for a customer in Westport MA who has noticed that their septic alarm is on and they need a septic specialist to locate the problem and fix their septic system. We have extensive experience repairing and replacing septic pumps including Blue Diamond, Hiblow and FujiClean pumps. If you require a septic repair, septic improvement or have any questions about your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services are available to provide regular maintenance to septic system owners. The most important maintenance for a septic system is regular pumping. Septic tanks must be pumped regularly to ensure proper functioning. If the septic system is not pumped in a timely manner, solids will bypass the effluent tee or baffle and clog the soil absorption system. Unabated, this will eventually result in hydraulic failure (e.g., plumbing backup and wastewater breakout). As you can imagine septic backup and breakout is not a pleasant or cheap thing to fix. Therefore it is always advisable to have your septic system pumped before it get to this critical point. The regularity of septic pump outs depends on a variety of factors including the size of your septic tank and your water usage but it is generally suggested that a septic tank is pumped every 3-5 years. If you have a garbage disposal you will need to have your septic pumped annually. If you are unsure if your tank needs to be pumped please contact us and we may be able to help. Today we have septic pump outs scheduled in Sutton, Oxford, Uxbridge, Upton, Grafton, Spencer and East Brookfield MA. If you have questions about septic pumping or if you need to schedule a septic pump out please do contact our Norton Office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com
All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services has licensed septic inspectors who are carrying out Septic First Maintenance Inspections in Portsmouth, Tiverton, Middletown, Little Compton and Barrington RI today. The purpose of a First Maintenance Septic Inspection is to establish what type of septic system you have, if the system poses any risk to public health, if there is any risk to the environment, and determine if any immediate corrective actions should be taken. In some towns, for example Portsmouth RI:
“First Maintenance Inspections (FMIs) and pump outs are required for all Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems upon notification by the town. If you receive a letter requiring a FMI and you have had an inspection performed in the previous year, simply file that inspection report with the town – to fulfill this requirement. All FMIs will have to be completed within 60 days of notification.
Alternative/Experimental OWTS will not be required to have FMIs – only proof of a maintenance contract and annual servicing.” For more information see the town website – https://www.portsmouthri.com/419/Wastewater-Management
The town also provide a list of licensed inspectors which includes All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services’ licensed Inspectors. If you need to schedule a Rhode Island First Maintenance Inspection or if you have any questions please do contact our office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com
“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 cesspools are now out of date and there are more efficient and environmentally conscious alternatives Massachusetts does not require them 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 Rehoboth, Rochester, Lakeville, Freetown, Dighton and Norton MA. We do also provide cesspool replacements and have recently done so in Oxford, Southborough and Wrentham MA. If you have a cesspool and require services or replacement or if you have any questions please do contact our office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com
