All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have extensive experience replacing and repairing septic pumps including FujiClean septic pumps, sewage grinder pumps, HiBlow septic pumps, E One Pumps and Blue Diamond septic pumps. Some septic systems can operate with gravity alone or some, where topographic considerations require, with inclusion of a septic pump. Today we have septic repairs, including septic pump repairs and replacement appointments, in Westport, New Bedford, Marion, Mattapoisett, Freetown, Acushnet and Rochester MA. If you need a septic repair or if you have any concerns about your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com
All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services endeavour to educate property owners with septic systems, who are not on town sewer that having your septic system serviced on a regular basis helps ensure that you will not have any unexpected septic system breakdowns. This is especially important for our commercial customers with restaurants because a problem with their septic system can have large repercussions to their business. You will also be increasing the longevity of your septic system which can be an expensive item to replace if it fails. We service our septic system clients on a quarterly, biannual or annual basis depending to the septic system and usage. For example a busy restaurant will require more frequent services that a customer with a summer property on Cape Cod. Today we have septic system services in Bridgewater, Raynham, Mansfield, Foxboro, Sharon and Norton MA. If you are interested in septic services or have any questions please do contact our office on 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com
All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have licensed septic inspectors who are available to carry out Title 5 Septic Inspections for property owners who require an inspection. Often we are contacted by property owners who have a septic system and are planning to sell their home and need to have a Title 5 Inspection completed before they can transfer Title. Once a Title 5 inspection has been done it is valid for 2 years so there is no reason not to have it done as soon as you decide to sell your property. Often property owners do not know what an inspection entails. This information is from the Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs and helps to explain what to expect:
“An inspection shall consist of the collection and recording of the following information:
(a) a general description of the system components and layout;
(b) quantification of the source/type of sanitary sewage. This should include type of use (domestic or commercial/industrial) as well as the design flow and whether or not the facility being served is occupied at the time of the inspection;
(c) an analysis of the factors set forth in 310 CMR 15.303 (failure criteria) and, if the system has a design flow of 10,000 gpd or greater, 15.304 (threats to public health and environment);
(d) water use records for the previous two years for facilities served by public water supply, if available from the supplier;
(e) a description of the septic tank including:
1. approximate age, size, and condition of the tank;
2. distance between bottom of grease/scum layer and the bottom of the outlet baffle;
3. distance between the top of the scum layer and the top of the outlet tee;
4. thickness of the grease/scum layer;
5. depth of the sludge layer and distance from sludge to outlet tee;
6. physical condition of inlet and outlet tees;
7. any evidence of leakage into or out of tank; and
8. any evidence of backup of effluent.
9. a characterization of the distribution box, and of dosing tanks with pumps, if any, including: a. any evidence of solids carryover; b. leakage into or out of the distribution box; c. whether the flow is equally divided; and d. any evidence of backup.
10. a description of the condition of the soil absorption system including: a. any signs of hydraulic failure; b. condition of surface vegetation; c. level of ponding within disposal area; d. encroachments into disposal area; and e. other sources of hydraulic loading.
11. the location of private water supply well (if any) in relation to system components; and
12. a copy of pump-out records on file with the local Approving Authority.”

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services has experience working with customers with cesspools on their properties. Cesspools are only found servicing older properties because other more efficient means of waste treatment are now available. 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. Massachusetts State requirements do not necessitate cesspools to be replaced however they do need to be maintained or if they 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 they will need to be upgraded. We provide cesspool services and repairs and have also done cesspool replacements when required. Ongoing maintenance of a cesspool is especially important because to sustain the integrity of the environment you need to ensure your cesspool is operating correctly and the surrounding area is not saturated by having your cesspool serviced and having pumpouts. Today we have appointments for both cesspool repairs and services in Hingham, Scituate, Hanover, Hanson and Halifax MA. If you have a cesspool and need cesspool service, cesspool repairs or have any questions please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com
All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that as it gets colder and winter tightens its grip on us nobody wants to be working outside or even consider exterior projects. However people do still move house and sell property even in the middle of winter. If you are selling a property in Massachusetts with a septic system that is not on town sewer you are required to have a septic inspection before Title Transfer can take place. However the state of Massachusetts acknowledge that in New England weather can sometimes make this difficult so as stated on the Massachusetts Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs:
‘ If weather conditions preclude inspection at the time of transfer, the inspection may be completed as soon as weather permits, but in no event later than six months after the transfer, provided that the seller notifies the buyer in writing’
At All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services we will always endeavour to carry out your septic inspection as scheduled but if the weather does prevent us from doing your septic inspection we have sufficient inspectors that we can reschedule your appointment as soon as the weather has cleared. Today we have septic inspections in Lakeville, Rochester, Freetown, Marion and Mattapoisett MA. If you need a septic inspection or if you have any questions about septic systems or inspections please do contact us on 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com
All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services has qualified engineers working for us who can assist with your septic engineering needs. Today we have septic engineering appointments which include soil evaluations, land use planning, and construction layouts for large commercial developments and private homes in North Attleboro, Wrentham, Plainville, Bellingham and Franklin MA. The soil evaluation or PERC test (percolation) that we have scheduled in North Attleboro is a soil test that is performed before installing a septic system tank. The perc test is extremely important because it measures the level of liquid absorption of the soil where the proposed septic tank will be located. It determines how quickly the material from the septic system will be absorbed into the soil.
If you are interested in our septic engineering services and how they can improve or repair your property please do contact our Norton office at 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com
All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have a septic pump repair today in Attleboro and additional septic repair appointments in Berkley, Rehoboth, Raynham, Norton and Taunton MA. Our technicians can quickly diagnose your septic problem and repair your septic system because we have the experience and tools to recognise and fix many different septic problems. We can also suggest courses of action that may prevent these repairs from being necessary again in the future. If a septic system is not used correctly you may find that repairs will be necessary and sometimes septic system failures can happen. Often some simple changes can avoid this. Property owners need to be aware of all the liquids and solids that are introduced into their septic system. Some of these are obviously not a good idea including clothing, toys, diapers and household objects such as scouring pads. However some may be slightly less obvious including oils, fats and grease, ‘flushable’ wipes, sanitary items and some cleaning products. Be careful of what you introduce to your septic system and you may avoid some costly septic system repairs but if you do need a septic pump repair or septic system repair appointment please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com.

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services wishes everyone a Happy Thanksgiving for tomorrow. We know our customers are also looking forward to Thanksgiving and food preparation is well underway for Thanksgiving Meals. We would like to remind our customers that it is not a good idea to put any type of cooking oil, fat or grease down the sink where it can enter your septic system. Whilst a well maintained septic system can cope with small amounts of fat, oil and grease, such as natural body oils that go into your septic system when you shower, if you regularly introduce cooking fats, oils and grease into your septic system it could result in a septic system failure if left . Just remember when you are making your beautifully juicy turkey dinner do not pour the fat, oil or grease down your sink. We have been conducting Septic Repairs in Yarmouth, Falmouth, Mashpee, Barnstable, Chatham, Sandwich and Bourne MA that could have been easily avoided with a little knowledge and preventative measures. If you have a question about your septic system or you need to schedule a septic repair please contact us on 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com
All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services has septic cleanings scheduled in Holliston, Canton, Foxboro, Stoughton, Sharon and Mansfield MA. It is essential to have your septic system pumped and cleaned regularly to ensure it keeps operating correctly. The timing of your cleanings will depend on a variety of factors including the size of your tank and the amount of use it gets but generally septic tanks should be cleaned every 3 years, or annually if you have a waste disposal. Essentially all of the wastewater from you sink, shower, bath, toilet, washing Machine etc leave your house and combine in your septic tank. But once there it separates into heavy sludge which sinks to the bottom of your tank, proteins, fats and oils become a floating scum layer and in the middle is the liquid effluent. It is the effluent that drains into your leachfield or drainfield. Even with a healthy and correctly operating septic system the sludge layer will build up which therefore requires septic cleaning to remove it and ensure that your system continues to operate correctly. At All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services we utilize 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 to ensure that we perform a thorough septic cleaning. If you have any questions about septic cleanings or if you wish to schedule an appointment please do contact our office on 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com
