Septic Repair Replacing A D-Box For A Customer in Attleboro

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have a septic repair scheduled today for a customer in Attleboro MA. We are replacing their distribution Box (D-Box). A D-Box is exactly as it sounds – it’s a box that moves, or distributes, treated wastewater from your septic tank into your leach field or drain field. It must be level and installed correctly or your watewater will not distribute evenly across your leach field and this can lead to over saturation and clogging which is not desirable. The d-box we are replacing was damaged when heavy equipment was mistakenly parked on top of it which broke and moved it. We have found that many property owners with septic systems while they know they have a septic tank sometimes forget that the leachfield and d-box are also essential parts of their septic system and must also be maintained. Here are a few simple tips to help you look after all parts of your septic system:

  • Minimize the use of the garbage disposal
  • Do not put grease down your drains
  • Spread loads of laundry out over time rather than doing multiple loads in a short period of time, and use liquid detergents rather than powdered detergents
  • Avoid excessively long showers
  • Avoid leaving tap water running when shaving, brushing teeth or doing other personal or household tasks
  • Do not flush medications, harmful chemicals, excessive amounts of bleach, harsh drain cleaners or degreasers
  • Have the septic tank pumped at least every three years
  • Do not add any septic systems cleaners, enzymes or additives
  • Remove water conditioning backwash discharges from the septic system
  • Do not plant trees and shrubs over leach fields
  • Do not flush personal products, paper towels, wipes or diapers
  • Do not clean or rinse paint brushes in the sinks
  • Equip all hot tubs, spas, whirlpool baths, etcetera with drain limiting valves that will only allow five gallons per minute to drain from fixture
  • Do not drive vehicles over leach fields

We also have septic repairs scheduled in Norton, Stoughton, Canton and Taunton MA and some of these repairs could have been avoided by following the above advice. If you have any questions about your septic system or if you need a septic repair please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com

Septic Cleaning Will Help Improve The Efficiency Of Your Septic System

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that to keep your septic system working you need to maintain it. At a minimum you want to ensure that you have your septic tank pumped on a regular basis. How often depends on a variety of factors including the size of your septic tank and the use it gets but we would suggest every 3 – 5 years. This changes to annually if you have a garbage disposal however. What you don’t want to do is pump too often. A properly maintained septic system should only be pumped as needed to avoid removing the “good” bacteria and to keep the system running smoothly. Sometimes just ‘pumping’ is not enough. Getting your tanks cleaned on a regular basis will also help to improve the efficiency of your septic system and keep it running smoothly. 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. You can be sure that when we provide septic pumping and cleaning that your system is clean and ready to go! Today we are providing septic cleaning to customers in Charlestown, Hopkinton, Richmond, Narragansett and Westerly RI. If you require septic pumping or septic cleaning or if you have any questions please do contact our office on 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com

Septic Pumping Is Essential Septic Maintenance

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services not only repairs, services and inspects septic systems but we also carry out the essential septic maintenance that is always required for your septic system – PUMPING. Regular pumping helps to prevent solids from escaping into your drainfield and clogging the soil. Normally a properly designed septic system has enough space for 3-5 years accumulation of sludge waste. Once waste reaches this point waste has less time to properly settle before leaving the tank into your leach field. This means that more solid waste will get into your leach field. As this becomes clogged liquid waste will not absorb at the rate which it enters the tank so plumbing can backup and waste will reach the surface. To avoid this unpleasant and expensive consequence of neglecting maintenance it is always a good idea to have your septic tank pumped every 3 – 5 years. If you have a garbage disposal you will need to have your septic tank pumped annually. The regularity that you have your system pumped will vary depending on various factors including the size of your septic tank and your water usage. For example a restaurant will need to have its septic pumped more regularly that a summer cottage which is only used in the warmer months. If you are unsure or have any questions please do contact our office where we will be happy to answer any questions that you have. Today we have septic pumping scheduled for property owners in Wrentham, Franklin, Foxboro, Mansfield and Sharon MA. If you need a septic pump out or if you have any questions about septic maintenance or septic systems please do contact our Norton office on  508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com

Sometimes Title 5 Inspections May Be Rescheduled Due To Snow

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that in winter when it snows or the weather turns icy sometimes the Title 5 Inspections that we have scheduled may not take place. Whether our inspector or customer can not get to the location of the inspection or the septic system is not accessible or for another reason there is no need for property owners to panic when they need the inspection for a property sale. Massachusetts Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs know that we live in a state where the weather can, a regularly does, effect plans. Therefore it is stated on the Mas Gov website:

“If weather conditions prevent an inspection before a sale, Title 5 allows the inspection to be done up to 6 months afterwards, provided that the seller notifies the buyer in writing of the need to complete the inspection.” For more information see: https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system

We have Title 5 septic inspections scheduled today in Northborough, Upton, Hudson, Holliston, Uxbridge, Sutton and Oxford MA. If for any reason the inspection can not take place we will always endeavor to reschedule the inspection as quickly as possible at a time that is convenient. If you have any questions or wish to schedule a septic inspection please do contact our Norton Office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com

Septic Upgrades Can Extend The Life Of Your Septic System

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services knows that with the snow that fell yesterday and the forecast snow for the end of the week we are certainly still in the grips of winter here in New England. That is not to say that we close when it gets cold out. We still provide our septic services to our customers even in the winter time! Today we have septic repairs and septic upgrades scheduled for customers in Lakeville, Acushnet and Rehoboth MA. We are also adding a riser to the outlet of a septic tank for a customer in Rochester MA. Adding risers, covers and filters to your septic system will improve its effectiveness. When your septic system is more accessible, it is also much safer and more attractive. Once strong, durable risers and system covers are installed homeowners are able to provide easy access to the system for future septic repairs, septic upgrades or cleaning services, eliminating the need to dig and excavate the system each time it needs to be pumped. Another septic upgrade we can provide to customers is the addition of a effluent filter. Engineers, scientists and educators in the septic industry 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 Clear septic and Wastewater Services’ 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. If you would be interested in septic system upgrades or if you need a septic repair please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com
