Septic Repairs Including a D-Box Repair in Westport

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services is replacing a D-Box for a customer today in Westport, MA. A septic distribution box (D-Box) is a container used to receive septic system effluent from a septic tank and to re-distribute the effluent into a network of attached drainfield or soakaway bed absorption trenches and pipes. The D-box works by gravity, flowing effluent into the drainfield (or leach field) piping network. It must be installed correctly to ensure that it distributes evenly. You must also maintain your septic system and the best way to do this is to have your system regularly pumped and to use your septic system correctly. The following are some steps that you can take to ensure that you maintain 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 for customers today in Mattapoisett, Marion, Onset, Lakeville, Freetown and New Bedford, MA. Many of these repairs could have been avoided if the property owners had followed some of the above advice.

To Avoid Septic Problems and Septic Failure Dont Forget Septic Pumping Is Essential Maintenance

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that septic pumping does not sound (or smell) very appealing but is an essential part of septic system maintenance. Even if your septic system has been used correctly and is operating perfectly you will still always need to have it pumped, usually every 3-5 years. Although your septic system can treat effluent the build up of solid waste can not be avoided and will need to be pumped. If you leave it too long there will be unpleasant and sometimes unsafe septic problems that could lead to a total system failure. To avoid this have your septic system pumped regularly. Today we have septic pumping scheduled in North Attleboro, Attleboro, Norton, Raynham, Rehoboth, Dighton and Freetown MA. If you require a septic pump out or if you have any questions about septic pumping or septic systems please do contact our office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com

Septic Services On Many Types Of Septic System

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services has been working in this region on septic systems for over 20 years. During this time we have worked with many different types of septic system and therefore gained knowledge and experience working on systems such as Singulair, FAST, Sand Filter, Jet System, Fuji Clean and many others. All Septic Systems are designed specifically for their own site and have variances which make them unique but 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. Like anything in your home your septic system must be maintained to ensure it keeps working correctly. If you do not want the worry of looking after your system or have a business and a septic failure would mean lost revenue it may be worth considering a septic service plan. We service many types of septic systems for our customers on quarterly, biannual or annual basis depending on their system and the amount of use it gets. Today we have septic services scheduled in Rehoboth, Norton, Rochester, Seekonk, Freetown and Swansea MA. If you would be interested in a septic service or you have questions about your septic system or septic services specifically please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com

Cesspools Need Regular Maintenance

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services work with many customers that don’t have a conventional septic system on their property but instead have a cesspool. As stated on the Mass Gov website:

“A cesspool is a pit which acts as both a settling chamber for solids and a leaching system for liquids. The use of cesspools may overload the capacity of the soil to remove bacteria, viruses, and phosphorus, and to nitrify ammonia and organic nitrogen compounds. A conventional septic system has a tank where solids can settle and begin to degrade, a distribution box, and a soil absorption system (SAS) that further treats the effluent by removing some of the bacteria, viruses, phosphorus, and nitrogen.”

Although cesspools are now out of date and there are more efficient and environmentally conscious alternatives Massachusetts does not require them to be replaced. They state that:

“Only those cesspools that exhibit signs of hydraulic failure, are located extremely close to private or public water supplies, or otherwise fail to protect or pose a threat to public health, safety or the environment will need to be upgraded (310 CMR 15.303). Also, cesspools must be upgraded prior to an increase in design flow (e.g., the addition of a bedroom to a home or seats to a restaurant).”

We provide cesspool services to customers so that they can ensure that their system continues to operate correctly. Today we have cesspool services scheduled in Rehoboth, Rochester, Lakeville, Freetown, Dighton and Norton MA. We do also provide cesspool replacements and have recently done so in Oxford, Southborough and Wrentham MA. If you have a cesspool and require services or replacement or if you have any questions please do contact our office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com

Septic Inspections In Lakeville, Rochester, Freetown, Marion and Mattapoisett MA

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that as it gets colder and winter tightens its grip on us nobody wants to be working outside or even consider exterior projects. However people do still move house and sell property even in the middle of winter. If you are selling a property in Massachusetts with a septic system that is not on town sewer you are required to have a septic inspection before Title Transfer can take place. However the state of Massachusetts acknowledge that in New England weather can sometimes make this difficult so as stated on the Massachusetts Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs:

‘ If weather conditions preclude inspection at the time of transfer, the inspection may be completed as soon as weather permits, but in no event later than six months after the transfer, provided that the seller notifies the buyer in writing’

At All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services we will always endeavour to carry out your septic inspection as scheduled but if the weather does prevent us from doing your septic inspection we have sufficient inspectors that we can reschedule your appointment as soon as the weather has cleared. Today we have septic inspections in Lakeville, Rochester, Freetown, Marion and Mattapoisett MA.
