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.

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 Attleboro, Sharon, Wrentham, Foxboro and Franklin MA. The soil evaluation or PERC test (percolation) that we have scheduled in 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.

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have the experience and knowledge to identify and repair septic problems when they arise for our customers. Today we are replacing an outlet baffle for a customer in Westport, MA. The outlet baffle directs the flow of effluent from the tank to the drainfield or leach field; it prevents the scum layer from going straight into the outlet pipe and causing drainfield clogs and premature system failure. Our customer had noticed sewage smells coming from their septic system and chose to contact us to investigate the issue. We were able to determine that the cause was a defective outlet baffle and will be able to replace the baffle and therefore ensure that the smell will disappear but more importantly there won’t be any larger and more serious problems created by this issue. We also have other septic repairs including a septic pump repair today in Westport, New Bedford, Fairhaven, Acushnet and Freetown MA. If you are concerned that you require 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 All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services

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

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services are attending a septic repair today for a residential customer located in Rochester MA. Our customer noticed sewage smells coming from their septic tank and wisely chose to contact us to investigate further. The source of this problem was a faulty pump, which failed to keep up with the waste entering the system so the tank was getting too full which allowed gases to escape. We can actually provide a septic pump repair in this instance and save the customer from needing to replace the entire pump. We have in stock many septic pumps from different manufacturers including Blue Diamond, FujiClean and HiBlow and their rebuild kits so we can carry out repairs in many instances without having to wait to order in parts. We also have other septic repairs scheduled today in Taunton, Norton, Mattapoisett and Marion MA.
