Fall Planting Can Result in a Leach Field Repair Being Necessary

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that in the fall many people are out raking leaves, pruning and generally getting their yards ready for winter. What most non gardeners do not realize is that for many tree varieties fall is the best time to plant them. In fall, the tree can grow new roots without having to feed the leaves. Water requirements are much lower without the leaves on the tree. To us it feels cool in fall, but that is actually the best temperature for root growth. Roots grow best in cool soil. A fall planting allows the tree to grow roots in fall and again in early spring before leaves develop. This gives the tree a good chance to lay down a good set of roots before they need to collect water and nutrients for the leaves. Unfortunately when you are planting large shrubs or trees in your yard if you do so on your leach field you can unknowingly create a septic problem. The roots and sometimes weight of plants can actually damage your drain field which means that your septic system is no longer working correctly and you may need a leach field repair. Septic systems do an amazing job of returning liquids to the soil for purification but the whole system needs to be functioning correctly for this to happen. When septic system failure occurs, the conditions they create are dangerous. These can include:

  • Hazardous sewage surfacing in yard
  • Health hazards to children and pets
  • Noxious odors over large areas
  • Polluted streams and ponds
  • Sewage back-up in buildings
  • Contaminated wells
  • Breeding areas for mosquitoes

Today we are at a customer’s home in Westport MA providing a leach field repair which has been damaged when they planted an orchard over it last year. The roots combined with heavy machinery being parked on to of the drainfield during construction have both lead to structural collapse of the leach field piping. A strong sewage odor and dampness over their yard was luckily a sign of a septic problem that the homeowners did not ignore. We can repair the damage so they do not have to worry about the consequences of an inoperative septic system. We also have other septic repairs scheduled today in New Bedford, Fall River, Swansea, Mattapoisett, Marion and Acushnet MA.

Septic System Upgrades Today In Norton and Attleboro MA

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services not only help our septic customers with their septic problems and breakdowns but can also provide septic system upgrades to improve their septic systems. Basic septic tank upgrades can simplify maintenance, improve system function, and protect your drainfield for long-term savings. Access risers and effluent filters are two low-cost improvements for existing or new tanks that we can provide. We are installing an access riser on to the septic tank for a customer today in Attleboro MA. The riser will help the owner and inspectors easily locate the tank, and they provide access for maintenance and repair. They also avoid the need to repeatedly dig up the lawn for routine inspections or pumping. We are also installing an effluent filter today for a customer in Norton MA. An effluent filter is an inexpensive plastic filtering device that fits into the outlet end of the septic tank. The screen helps prevent solids from leaving the tank and clogging the drainfield, one of the most common causes of septic system failure. We have recently provided septic system upgrades for other customers in Mashpee, Reading and Milton MA.

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services Can Provide Septic Repairs

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have been contacted by a client in Rochester MA who suspects that they have a leach field problem. They have noticed a sewage smell in their yard around the leach field area and there is a consistent wet, sogginess on the field. Other signs that you may have a problem can include lush vegetation over the leach field, frequent pumping of the tank being required, and/or slow drains.

Leach fields fail for two primary reasons. The main reason is referred to as biological clogging. This is the development of a biomat beneath the leachfield that eventually prevents the liquid or effluent from entering the underlying soil. This biomat is a combination of fine organic solids that have been carried out of the septic tank and the remnants of anaerobic bacteria. These bacteria originate in the human intestinal tract and enter the septic system with the waste products. 95% of all leach field failures are biological. The second primary reason is referred to as a mechanical failure. This could be a structural collapse of the leach field piping or chambers, root intrusion, or fine non-organic materials that are washed down to the bottom of the leach field and seal the soil.

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have many years experience identifying and repairing leach field problems and will find locate and solve our client’s leach field problem. We have other septic repair appointments today in Dighton, Raynham, Rehoboth and Lakeville MA.

Septic Cleaning Will Improve The Efficiency Of Your Septic System And Keep It Running Smoothly

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that when you are thinking about your septic system (if you are ever thinking about your septic system) one word that is unlikely to be the first or even the tenth is ‘clean’. However All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services can provide septic cleaning for your septic system and for a very good reason. If you have a septic system it must be pumped regularly, generally every 2-5 years. There is no getting around it, if a septic system is used it will eventually fill up and must be pumped to work correctly. However when you have your septic system pumped you are not necessarily having it ‘cleaned’ and a thorough septic cleaning can make a big difference to your system. Getting your tanks cleaned on a regular basis will help to improve the efficiency of your septic system and keep it running smoothly. Quick service pumping companies may seem cheaper but will actually cost property owners down the road because they are not cleaning while they pump. All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services takes pride in the work that we do, utilizing specialized miniature equipment to locate specific areas of your system, such as a sewer cam that is used to investigate the inside of your sewer lines, and jetting equipment to clean the pipes within the leach field. Today we have septic cleaning scheduled in Hudson, Stow, Maynard, Acton, Boxborough, Carlisle and Wayland MA. If you would be interested in septic cleaning and septic pumping or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 508 763 4431 or visit All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services

Septic Pumping Should Be Done Every 3 – 5 Years

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services provide perhaps the most important septic system maintenance service – septic pumping. Septic Systems will always need to be pumped but the frequency can vary depending on a variety of factors including the size of your septic system and the number of people that are using it. However as a general guide you should have your septic system pumped every 3-5 years or annually if you have a garbage disposal. This is because normally, properly designed tanks have enough space for up to three to five years’ safe accumulation of sludge. When the sludge level increases beyond this point, sewage has less time to settle properly before leaving the tank. As the sludge level increases, more solid wastes escape into the soil absorption system (SAS) or leach field/ drain field. If the SAS becomes so clogged that it cannot absorb liquid at the rate at which it enters the tank, the plumbing will “back up” or unsanitary wastewater will bubble to the surface. You really don’t want to wait until you have sewage ‘bubbling’ to the surface in your yard or backing up into your house so it is a good idea to keep up with your septic pumping schedule. Today we have septic pumping scheduled for customers in Plymouth, Carver, Halifax, Rochester, Sandwich and Bourne MA. If you need to schedule a septic pump out or if you have questions about pumping or your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 508 763 4431 or visit All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services

D-Box replacement in Norton, MA

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have a D-Box replacement today in Norton MA. We have extensive experience working with all parts of a septic system and know that all parts need to be working correctly to enable your system to do its job. Most systems are based on the same principles. A conventional septic system consists of a septic tank, a distribution box and a drainfield. Your septic system treats your household wastewater by temporarily holding it in the septic tank where heavy solids and lighter scum are allowed to separate from the wastewater. The solids stored in the tank are decomposed by bacteria and later pumped out. After partially treated wastewater leaves the tank, it flows into a distribution box, which separates this flow evenly into a network of drainfield trenches. Drainage holes at the bottom of each line allow the wastewater to drain into gravel trenches for temporary storage. This effluent then slowly seeps into the subsurface soil where it is further treated and purified. Your system must be maintained and used correctly to ensure that it is doing its job correctly. Our client’s septic Distribution Box (D-Box) is no longer working so we are replacing it. We can locate and remove the old box and install the new d-box with minimum disruption to our client. We also have additional septic repairs today in Berkley, Norton, Dighton, Middleboro and Raynham MA. If you have a septic system concern or you need us to investigate a septic problem or you have questions about your septic system please do contact us at our Norton office on 508 763 4431 or visit All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services

Drain Field Septic Repair Necessary In Attleboro Due To Roots

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have expertise in many areas so that we can bring our customers the best possible septic services. For example we need landscaping and plant knowledge because septic systems, very often, are located in a customers yard with the landscaping and planting as one would expect. However it is this landscaping that can cause problems. For example trees often have root systems that go far beyond where a homeowner expected when they first planted a tree seedling. Roots can infiltrate a septic drain field and really cause a lot of trouble. Roots even tend to grow toward drain fields because it is their job to find water for the tree. Today we are providing a drain field septic repair for a customer in Attleboro MA whose tree roots have caused damage to the piping that is necessary for their leach field to work correctly. It is really advisable to only have grass growing on your leach field and not plant large bushes or trees on it to prevent these sorts of septic repairs being necessary. We also have other septic repair appointments in North Attleboro, Wrentham, Franklin, Bellingham and Blackstone MA. If you require a septic repair or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 508 763 4431 or visit All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services
