Title 5 Allows 2 Years For A Septic Repair or Upgrade If Your Home Fails A Septic Inspection

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services knows that if you own a home with a septic system or cesspool and plan to put it up for sale, add a bedroom, or change its use, you will need to get a system inspection. Title 5 of the State Environmental Code protects us by requiring inspection of private sewage disposal systems. Local boards of health receive these inspection reports. Most systems will pass inspection. Title 5 requires the replacement or upgrade of systems that fail. If your system fails inspection, Title 5 allows up to 2 years to complete repairs or an upgrade. For more information see: https://www.mass.gov/guides/consumer-protection-tips-septic-system-inspections-and-repairs Today we have septic repairs scheduled for a client who is planning to sell their home in Acushnet MA but failed their septic inspection.

Your D-Box Must Be Operating Correctly To For Your Septic System To Work

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services has an appointment today for a customer in Acushnet MA who needs a septic repair because their D-Box (distribution box) is not operating correctly. A D-Box is an essential component of a conventional septic system. As the name suggests it ‘distributes’ in this case wastewater from the septic tank which has already partially treated the wastewater into the leach field. A septic system consists a septic tank and a drain field which are connected through the distribution box. Wastewater flows from your property to the septic tank. The septic tank treats the wastewater by holding it in the tank long enough for solids and liquids to separate. The wastewater forms three layers inside the tank. Solids lighter than water (such as greases and oils) float to the top forming a layer of scum. Solids heavier than water settle at the bottom of the tank forming a layer of sludge. This leaves a middle layer of partially clarified wastewater. The layers of sludge and scum remain in the septic tank where bacteria work to break the solids down. The sludge and scum that cannot be broken down are retained in the tank until the tank is pumped. The layer of clarified liquid flows from the septic tank to the drainfield via the D-Box which uniformly distributes the wastewater into the drainfield. A standard drain field (also known as a leach field, disposal field, or a soil absorption system) is a series of trenches or a bed lined with gravel or course sand and buried one to three feet below the ground surface. Perforated pipes or drain tiles run through the trenches to distribute the wastewater. The drainfield treats the wastewater by allowing it to slowly trickle from the pipes out into the gravel and down through the soil. The gravel and soil act as biological filters. Clearly it is essential that all components of the septic system are working correctly for it to process your waste. We will ensure that the D-Box is either repaired or replaced so our customer can be confident that their system is working efficiently. We have other septic repair appointments today in Deighton, Plainville, North Attleboro and Raynham MA.

Septic Repair For A Rochester D-Box

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services are replacing a D-Box for a customer today in Rochester, 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

We also have septic repairs for customers today in Acushnet, Fall River, Fairhaven and Lakeville MA. Many of these repairs could have been avoided if the property owners had followed some of the above advice. If you need a septic repair or if you have any questions about your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com

Title 5 Septic Inspections For Private Properies And A Condominium

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services provide Title 5 Septic Inspections to many customers in Massachusetts and most are either selling a property or buying a property. This is because a Title 5 Septic Inspection has to take place within 2 years before a sale. However there are other times that a Title 5 Septic Inspection is required. We are providing Title 5 Septic Inspections today in Acushnet, Fairhaven, Lakeville, Carver and Rochester MA for private properties and one condominium. As specified on the Mas Gov website:

  • “Condominiums with 5 or more units – all systems must be inspected every 3 years.
  • Condominiums with fewer units must either inspect all systems every 3 years, or the system serving the unit being transferred must be inspected within 2 years prior to transfer.”

For more information see: https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system

This condominium building has over 5 units so we are conducting the Title 5 Inspection which needs to be carried out because its last inspection was over 3 years ago. If you require a Title 5 Septic Inspection or if you have any questions about septic inspections please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com

Septic Upgrades Can Extend The Life Of Your Septic System

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services knows that with the snow that fell yesterday and the forecast snow for the end of the week we are certainly still in the grips of winter here in New England. That is not to say that we close when it gets cold out. We still provide our septic services to our customers even in the winter time! Today we have septic repairs and septic upgrades scheduled for customers in Lakeville, Acushnet and Rehoboth MA. We are also adding a riser to the outlet of a septic tank for a customer in Rochester MA. Adding risers, covers and filters to your septic system will improve its effectiveness. When your septic system is more accessible, it is also much safer and more attractive. Once strong, durable risers and system covers are installed homeowners are able to provide easy access to the system for future septic repairs, septic upgrades or cleaning services, eliminating the need to dig and excavate the system each time it needs to be pumped. Another septic upgrade we can provide to customers is the addition of a effluent filter. Engineers, scientists and educators in the septic industry suggest that property owners install an effluent filter in the outlet tee of their septic tank to extend the life of their system. Coupled with a regular maintenance program, such as All Clear septic and Wastewater Services’ Preventative Maintenance Program, and professional pumping, your septic system could actually last indefinitely. Due to the high cost associated with replacing a septic system, this seemingly small upgrade to your system will pay off in a big way. If you would be interested in septic system upgrades or if you need a septic repair please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com
