Septic Services Enable Our Clients To Not Worry About their Septic

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services knows that the words septic, sewer, sewage and effluent are not ones that most people use in day to day life and are generally quite happy that this is the case. However at All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services we regularly discuss, at length, septic systems, septic services, sewage and effluent treatment because these are the words of our trade and we are proud of the work that we do. We enable homeowners to forget about their septic system and, even though they use them everyday, they don’t need to talk about them on a daily basis. Fortunately your septic system is not likely to require frequent maintenance as long as you are using it correctly. However for some property owners they like the peace of mind knowing that their system is being maintained but they would also prefer to not to have to do it themselves or take the time and expense of hiring a septic company everytime their system requires maintenance. This can be especially true for commercial property owners who have a septic system because a poorly operating septic system or one that breaks down or requires repair will cost money to fix and result in lost revenue while the system is not operational. This is why we have many clients on septic service plans which takes away the need to concern themselves about septic system maintenance and provides confidence that they are doing as much as possible to prevent future septic problems. We will service your septic system, usually on a quarterly, biannual or annual basis. The property owner will not even generally need to be present for the service so we can monitor and maintain a septic system with minimal disruption to our client. Today we have septic services scheduled for commercial and residential customers in Bellingham, Sharon, Wrentham, Franklin, Foxboro, Mansfield and Blackstone MA. If you would be interested in septic services or if you have any questions about services or septic systems please do contact our office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com

Rochester Customer Requires Septic Repair Due to Overloading System

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services has many years of experience working in the septic industry in this region. This means that we can use our accumulated knowledge and the skills that we have developed to repair septic problems that our customers have. What is sometimes even more important is that we can locate the cause of the problem and this sometimes means that we have to educate septic system owners in the best way to use their system to prevent problems happening in the future. For example today we have been to a customer property in Rochester MA and the mistake that they were making is that they were putting too much water into their septic system at one time. The decomposition process can become strained if there is too much excess water in the system, resulting in a variety of problems. Ideally, septic owners should only be using a maximum of 50 gallons of water per day, per person. The following averages for common household activities can help you keep track:

Dishwasher Cycle – 7 gallons
Washing Machine – 40 gallons per load (less with front-loader machines)
Toilet – 2 gallons per flush, 1.6 gallons for newer standard toilets
Shower – 2.5 gallons per minute (a 10 minute shower = 25 gallons)

It can be difficult to stay on top of usage, particularly for large families, but laying down some basic guidelines can help everyone to work together. New environmentally-friendly appliances, toilets and shower heads can help reduce usage without a lot of extra effort. Trying to spread laundry loads out over a week rather than doing it all on one day helps and not running many water using appliances all at once. A water meter can be helpful for households that feed off of a well. The government website http://www.energystar.gov also has a lot of helpful ideas and tips for reducing water usage. It is always a good idea to remember that a septic system is installed based upon the number of people that are anticipated to be using it. If your base number increases, you might need to upgrade to a larger system. In addition to our Rochester appointment we have other septic repairs scheduled today in Marion, Mattapoisett, Fall River and Fairhaven MA.

Leach Field Problem Identified and Repaired

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have been contacted by a client in North Attleboro 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 drainfield 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 repair our client’s leach field problem. We have other septic repair appointments today in Wrentham, Middleboro, Mansfield and Norton MA.

Consider Your Septic System When Planning Holiday Events At Home

All Clear Septic And Wastewater Services are looking forward to the upcoming holidays. Holidays usually mean good food and spending time with friends and family. However if you are hosting large gatherings it is a good idea to consider your septic system’s limitations when you plan a large event at your home. We have one customer who has a small property with a correspondingly small septic system. However they regularly host large gatherings of friends and family which puts a huge strain on their septic system. They have found that it is more cost effective to hire portable toilets for their events than to have their septic system pumped much more regularly due to the excessive use it gets when more people are using the system. This also reduces the likelihood of associated repairs and failures caused by a septic system that has not been pumped when required. If you are planning a large Christmas Party this holiday season at home or have a lot of extra guests staying at your home for an extended period of time consider your septic system. Sometimes it is worth getting portable toilets in for your party but if you do not make sure you know when your system was last pumped and consider having another pump out after the holidays. Also spread washing loads out over a week rather than doing multiple loads of laundry in one day which can also overload your septic. If you are unsure we are always happy to discuss your concerns. When you have a septic system it will always need to be pumped on a regular basis. We would suggest this is every 3-5 years but this can vary dramatically depending on the size of your septic system and the water usage. Today we have septic pumping scheduled in Chelmsford, Acton, Boxford, Ayer, Stow and Boxborough MA. If you wish to schedule septic pumping or if you have any questions regarding pump outs or your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com
