Meet Holly Walker of Septic Preservation Services

Septic Preservation Services

Holly has been a member of the Septic Preservation Team for almost 18 months.  She was brought on initially to help with product descriptions with the online store but is now involved with packaging, pricing and postage, as well as increasing their presence online.

Holly also has taken over  writing the daily blogs  and updating the online calendars to free up time for Bob Silva, head of SPS, and allow him more time for his daily administrative duties.

She has a degree in Medieval History and has worked for 8 years in  Human Resource and recruitment for engineering companies, involving Automotive, Aerospace and Oil and Gas.  While Holly does not possess an engineering degree, she feels her past experiences help her in writing the blogs and she feels she can present the technical matters in  a way that everyone can understand.  She is able to take a colleague’s repair story and research about the fix and the reason for i,t and present it in her daily blogs.

Holly is British and moved to the United States in 2009.  She initially lived in Missouri, Colorado, and then Massachusetts.   She is now living in California, slightly north of San Diego, with her two elementary aged children. She is able to work remotely and stay involved in SPS.   She has enjoyed spending time exploring her new town and state and discovering the best beaches with her children.

Being British sometimes creates problems with the “language barrier”.   According to Holly, ” Although we all speak English, I still find I’m sometimes speaking a foreign language.  For example, I was corresponding with a supplier of ours about their pumps and also the spares kits that they provide to carryout maintenance and repairs on their pumps.  After placing the spares kit onto the website, Bob pointed out to me that in the USA a “spares kit” is not something that would ever be referred to and a “rebuild kit” is the correct term.  It turned out that my contact with our supplier was also British, which I hadn’t realized, and we were both using the wrong term and confusing everyone else!

Holly enjoys being a valued member of the SPS team and helping to spread the word on their great reputation.

Meet Jamie Graffam from Septic Preservation Services

Septic Preservation ServicesMeet Jamie Graffam of Septic Preservation Services.  He is a service tech at SPS and has been a member of the team for 3+ years.  He has completed the U.R.I. course for septic inspections as well as several other courses to help him with his service tech responsibilities.

Jamie served 4 years in the Marine Corps after high school and then searched from big business to big business looking for the right fit in a company.  He found that fit with Septic Preservation Services.  He loves being part of the SPS team and particularly likes working outside.

Personally Jamie is engaged to his fiancee Jen, and has two daughters, Keeghan and Kilee.  He is happy to announce that Keeghan will be making him a grandfather early next year.

You never know what you’ll come across in the septic business, and Jamie shared this humorous story with us.

In the course of his duties, Jamie had opened an air box on a septic system, only to find a Momma and a baby snake “I’m not afraid of snakes, but when they catch me off guard, they do startle me a bit”. He removed Mom and took her to the nearby woods to release her, and then returned to remove the baby snake, but as he is kneeling down and catching the snake, his phone vibrates, (fellow SPS team member, Jim Boucher), and really gave him a good scare, (thinking Momma snake had returned to get her baby).  He then realized, to his relief,  it was only his phone.  He answered his phone, laughing,  and had a good story to share with Jim.

Jamie is another member of the skilled and caring team at Septic Preservation Services.  Let them help you make sense of your septic system and answer any questions or concerns you may have.  You can reach them at 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com

Local Experience with Septic Design

septic system All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have a septic design meeting today for a customer in Barrington, RI.  We have extensive experience designing septic systems for customers in Rhode Island, which is essential, because it is extremely necessary to use a company who is well versed in the local septic requirements laid out by town Board of Health departments as well as state requirements.  If you use a septic company without local experience, you may face delays and additional costs if you later find out that the septic system that you are installing is not correct.  We have recently designed septic systems for customers in North Kingstown, Cranston, Jamestown, Middletown, Portsmouth, and Westerly, RI.  If you need a septic system to be designed or if you have any questions please do contact us at 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com

Functional Septic Inspections in Rhode Island

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services has Rhode Island Functional Inspection appointments at client properties today in Portsmouth, Middletown, Little Compton, Tiverton, and Jamestown, RI.

“Approximately 150,000 Rhode Island households, or one third of the state’s population, use some form of septic system for sewage disposal.   Rhode Island’s septic systems discharge some seven billion gallons of wastewater into the ground each year.

When used properly, septic systems function very well.   If mismanaged, however, these systems will fail, creating conditions that may threaten human health and the environment.  Untreated effluent from malfunctioning septic systems may reveal itself by sight and smell, when a system backs up, or it may quietly percolate through the soil into the groundwater and adjacent water bodies.

Failed systems have been associated with many serious problems.  Outbreaks of diseases, such as hepatitis, dysentery, and gastroenteritis, may result from unmitigated wastewater pathogens.  Untreated effluent can accelerate the eutrophication process of nearby waterbodies, lowering oxygen levels and suffocating aquatic life.  From an economic point of view, septic system repair bills can be staggering.  Yet, many of us live with and use septic systems, giving little or no thought for their existence…until they fail.

Inspection and maintenance is the key to ensuring that septic systems function properly.”

As stated in the Rhode Island Handbook for Inspection, which was funded by DEM using a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Clean Water Act, section 319.

Clearly septic inspections are necessary.  A functional inspection is used to determine whether a system is adequate to serve the wastewater disposal needs of the household . A functional inspection is especially intended for use during a property transfer as a means to protect the consumer and identify systems in need of upgrade or repair. These inspections will also be required for the following:

Cesspool/unpermitted systems within 50 feet of storm drain

Cesspools/unpermitted systems within 200 feet of coast
