The State of Massachusetts initiated a law in 1995, requiring all on-site sewage treatment systems to fall under specific guidelines. This was in response to concerns about the contamination of groundwater and local drinking water supplies as a result of antiquated septic systems and cesspools within Massachusetts.
The Code of Massachusetts Regulations (310 CMR, Section 15.00) states that Title 5 Inspection: “Protects you and your neighbors from public health threats. DEP local Boards of Health and system owners all share the responsibility for the proper sitting, construction, upgrade and maintenance of on-site systems.”
In 1995, the year that the law was implemented, Al Rivet, the owner of All-Clear, entered the septic industry as a Title 5 Inspector. However, after he had performed thousands of inspections, Al discovered that there was a need for a company in Southcoast Massachusetts that could provide inspections, effectively troubleshoot septic systems and provide any preventative maintenance or repairs that were required. As a result, the incorporation of All-Clear as a septic and wastewater services company was established in 2004.
The service offerings available to our customers through All-Clear have grown over the years, as consumer needs were identified through hands-on experience. We proudly offer Title V Inspections, confidential septic evaluations, troubleshooting services, annual maintenance, remedial repairs and septic rejuvenations.
The only service NOT provided by All-Clear is the installation of new septic systems. We refrain from providing installations so that there would never be a conflict of interest for us to fail a passing system. Providing quality septic services that you can trust and professional customer care is our top priority.
All of our inspectors at All-Clear have pride in the job that they do. They strive to always provide a thorough, complete and professional inspection for our customers, respecting the landscape of the home or business in the process.
The equipment we use includes what we call “mini excavating machinery,” that have been designed to locate specific components of your septic system. These tools include a “sewer cam” that we use to investigate the inside of your sewer lines and jetting equipment that we use to clean the pipes within the leach field.
All-Clear stands behind our official inspections. We have earned a solid reputation within the community for providing honest and thorough inspections. We have even been called upon to provide a second opinion or a confidential voluntary assessment for the homebuyer.
This high standard of quality and commitment to excellence has set All-Clear apart from our competitiors and has made us experts in the septic and wastewater service industry.
At All-Clear we believe that the best thing we can do for our customers is to properly educate them about the proper maintenance of septic systems and preservation of their local environment through proper usage. We provide helpful education to each of our clients and other local industry professionals throughout the New England area, through a series of informative workshops and seminars.
Al and his team of inspectors and professional septic service providers have even taught a workshop at the University of Rhode Island. Their Functional Inspectors Workshop was attended by a variety of industry providers, including other septic inspectors, realtors, health agents and engineers.
