septic system maintenance All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services knows that proper preventative maintenance can extend the life of your septic system. Septic systems that are not regularly maintained will average less than 20 years, however studies conducted by field professors, scientists, and engineer,s reveal that proper maintenance can help a septic system to last indefinitely. This can save the homeowner thousands of dollars over a lifetime.

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services offers an affordable Preventative Maintenance Program designed to give our residential and commercial clients peace of mind in knowing that their septic system is being properly maintained, checked, and monitored.  We are so confident in our ability to effectively maintain your septic system, that we offer a “Pass or It’s FREE Guarantee” on Title 5 Inspections to all of our Preventative Maintenance Program customers that are in the program and have followed our recommendations.  We also give our up-to-date Preventative Maintenance Program customers a 50% discount off of all Title 5 Inspections.

We have experience servicing various types of septic system including Singulair Service, FAST Service, Jet System Service, and Fuji Clean Service.  Today, we have a Singulair Service for a customer in Freetown, MA, where we will be doing a full service and aerator.  We also have septic service and preventative maintenance appointments in Berkley, Fall River, Westport, New Bedford, and Fairhaven, MA.  

The regularity of serving depends on the septic system and the use it gets.  For example, a small summer cottage on the cape that is only used seasonally will not need as many services as a large 5 bedroom family home or a restaurant.  If you would be interested in septic system services or have any questions please do contact our Norton MA office at 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com

Summer Gatherings and Your Septic System

When planning for summer gatherings this summer, prevention can go a long way toward averting disasters with your septic system.  Parties, weddings, and any summer gathering can exert heavy use on your septic system.  Careful planning can help you prepare your septic system for the extra guests and extra load.

Here are some tips:

Arrange for a septic tank pumping prior to the event. Heavy volume of wastewater over a short period of time can over saturate the drain field and cause a mess in your yard or backup in to your home. Performing septic tank maintenance right before the event will create added capacity which will be able to handle more volume.

Check  your septic system and make sure it is functioning properly before the event.  Septic Preservation Services have technicians available for a maintenance check.   A problem may not be obvious during regular or modest use, but when you add an additional volume of wastewater over a short period of time, this can cause an already impaired system to fail.

The technician can also check your drain lines and make sure they are clear as well as the flow of water from your home to the tank.  Partially clogged drain lines can fail with excessive effluent running through them in a short amount of time.

School  your guests on what not to flush down the toilet.  A nearby garbage can  and properly placed signs on dos and don’ts may be all you  need.

Better yet, for large gatherings with many guests, such as weddings, graduation parties or family reunions, consider renting portable toilets and sinks.  This will take the load off your septic system and avoid costly and odorous disasters.  Units today are more attractive and reasonable and can take the worry out of your day.

Proper preventative maintenance  is all that is needed to keep a septic system functioning properly for many years to come. When the day is done,  the cost of a little preventive maintenance is well worth  the investment to avoid the potential for backups and septic system repairs or replacement.

Call All Clear Septic and Wastewater  Services before your summer gathering.   They have all the equipment and professionals available to maintain and check your septic system and get it ready for your big day.  You can reach them at 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com for more information.

Septic System Risers, Covers and Filters

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services knows that an excellent way to improve the effectiveness of your septic system is through the use of risers, covers and filters.  When your septic system is more accessible, it is also much more safe and attractive.  These goals can be achieved through the use of strong, durable risers and system covers.  Once installed, property owners are able to provide easy access to the system for future repairs, upgrades or cleaning services, eliminating the need to dig and excavate the system each time it needs to be pumped.  People in the septic industry, including engineers, scientists, and educators, also 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 Septic and Wastewater Service’s Clear 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.  All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services has septic improvements and installations scheduled today for customers in Fairhaven, Acushnet, Freetown, Marion, Mattapoisett, and Norton, MA.  If you wish to upgrade your septic system or if you have questions about this, please do contact our office at 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com

Flushable Products Could Hurt Your Septic System

All Clear Septic and Wastewater ServicesAll Clear Septic and Wastewater Services are repairing a Septic System today for a customer in Middleboro, MA.  As your septic system ages it may need repairs and maintenance but looking after your septic system can prevent some maintenance and repairs from being necessary, and can certainly extend the life of your septic system.  We have recently found that manufacturers have increasingly promoted ‘flushable’ wipes to households, but these should not be flushed if you have a septic system because they will clog up it up.  Pop off toilet ‘wand’ pads are also new and advertised as flushable but should not be flushed and if used excessively could damage your septic system.  Ideally you would be able to read the label if you are unsure, but unfortunately manufacturers are misleading with their advice in the aim of selling more product, so we suggest if you are not sure, trash it don’t flush it . If you need more information or need to schedule a septic system repair or maintenance contact our office at 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com
