Winter Weather Can Create Septic Problems

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know, just like all other New Englanders, that storms and weather are a part of living in this region. However the severe winter storms can result in property damage which can affect septic systems just like other parts of your property. Just like with other parts of your home or business it is never wise to ignore signs of septic problems and hope they might go away. Signs of a septic issue can include:

  • All of the drains from the house are slow
  • There is a persistent wet area over the leach field
  • Sewage is surfacing in the area of the septic tank or distribution box
  • There is sewage seeping through the foundation
  • The liquid level in the leach field is at the top of the crushed rock layer, the chambers or other underground structures
  • The vegetation over the leach field is greener and more lush than over adjacent areas in the yard
  • There is sewage odor in the yard at times or constantly
  • There is flow back from the leach field when the septic tank is pumped
  • The septic tank needs to be pumped frequently
  • The septic tank discharge baffle is damaged or missing
  • Rain water seems to take longer to disappear over the leach field than over adjacent areas in the yard
  • Well water is contaminated

Customers are often concerned about the amount of disruption that a septic inspection will cause because if you are selling a property you understandably don’t want a large unsightly mess to be created. However as sated on Mass Gov:

“The inspection includes determining the location and condition of cesspools, septic tanks and distribution boxes. Often, this will not require extensive excavation. .”

Our inspectors take care to cause as little disruption as possible, for example we will carefully remove turf and place it on a ground sheet along with any soil that is removed when inspecting your septic system. We can therefore replace the soil and turf with as little evidence of the inspection as possible left behind.

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services Can Provide Septic Repairs

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.

D-Box replacement in Norton, MA

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have a D-Box replacement today in Norton MA. We have extensive experience working with all parts of a septic system and know that all parts need to be working correctly to enable your system to do its job. Most systems are based on the same principles. A conventional septic system consists of a septic tank, a distribution box and a drainfield. Your septic system treats your household wastewater by temporarily holding it in the septic tank where heavy solids and lighter scum are allowed to separate from the wastewater. The solids stored in the tank are decomposed by bacteria and later pumped out. After partially treated wastewater leaves the tank, it flows into a distribution box, which separates this flow evenly into a network of drainfield trenches. Drainage holes at the bottom of each line allow the wastewater to drain into gravel trenches for temporary storage. This effluent then slowly seeps into the subsurface soil where it is further treated and purified. Your system must be maintained and used correctly to ensure that it is doing its job correctly. Our client’s septic Distribution Box (D-Box) is no longer working so we are replacing it. We can locate and remove the old box and install the new d-box with minimum disruption to our client. We also have additional septic repairs today in Berkley, Norton, Dighton, Middleboro and Raynham MA. If you have a septic system concern or you need us to investigate a septic problem or you have questions about your septic system please do contact us at our Norton office on 508 763 4431 or visit All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services

Using Chemical Drain Unblockers Can Result In A Septic Repair Being Necessary

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know how annoying it is when you pull the plug on your sink and the water doesn’t drain away. Luckily there are a lot of drain unblocking products on the market which quickly deal with blockages. However no matter how easy and tempting it is to use one of these products, if you have a septic system it is wise to use an alternative method. If your drain is clogged a harsh chemical drain opener bought in the store can cause serious problems with your septic system. Septic system owners should use an alternative solution: a 1:1:1 ratio of salt, baking soda and vinegar. Follow this solution with boiling water or use a drain snake to clear out the clogs. Today we have septic repairs scheduled for customers who have contacted us because they have noticed that their septic system is not operating correctly. Often a septic breakdown is the result of a system not being used correctly and the cost and disruption could have therefore been avoided if the property owner had been better educated in the precautions to take when your property is supported with a septic system. We have septic repair appointments today in Berkley, Norton, Dighton, Rehoboth, Seekonk and Attleboro MA. If you require a septic repair or if you have questions about your septic system please do contact our office on 508-763-4431 or visit All Clear Septic And Wastewater Services

Septic Pumping Is Essential Septic System Maintenance

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services knows that regular maintenance is the single most important consideration in making sure your septic system, whether it is a conventional septic system, an innovative/alternative system, or a cesspool, works well over time. Regular septic pumping helps prevent solids from escaping into the drainfield and clogging soil pores. It is advisable to have your septic pumped every 3 – 5 years depending on various factors including the size of your tank and the water usage of your property. If you have a garbage disposal you will need to have your system pumped much more regularly, ideally annually.

Surprisingly some property owners with septic systems do not realise that septic systems need to be regularly pumped and believe that if they haven’t had any problems then their system doesn’t need a pump out. Unfortunately this is a serious and sometimes costly misconception. As your system is used, solid materials settle to the bottom of the tank, forming a sludge layer. Grease and lightweight materials float to the surface of the septic tank as scum. Normally, properly designed tanks have enough space for up to three to five years’ safe accumulation of sludge. When the sludge level increases beyond this point, sewage has less time to settle properly before leaving the tank. As the sludge level increases, more solid wastes escape into the soil absorption system (SAS). If the SAS becomes so clogged that it cannot absorb liquid at the rate at which it enters the tank, the plumbing will “back up” or unsanitary wastewater will bubble to the surface. Nobody wants this to happen at their property, whether it is a private residence or commercial location so make sure that if you have a septic system that you have it regularly pumped. If you do not know if your system requires pumping please do contact us and we will be happy to answer any questions you have. We have septic pumping scheduled for customers today in Dighton, Marion, New Bedford, Mattapoisett, Westport and Fall River MA. If you wish to schedule a septic pump out or if you have any questions about septic system maintenance, septic pumping or your septic system please do contact our Norton, MA office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com
