Even though many homeowners consider septic tank covers ugly when they are exposed, they serve a very important function.  Being able to access the inlet and outlet tees whenever the tank is pumped is critical in checking all areas of the septic tank.  Some people never dig up the inlet cover of the septic tank until they have a clog in the inlet tee.  This leads to a back up into the house and then the following usually occurs. The plumber is called, then roto rooter is called and after about $600 or so with no solution to the problem the local septic company is called.  We come over, dig up the inlet tee and remove the clump of grease and toilet paper that has been building up over the past 20 years or so.   Once again this all could have been avoided if there was adequate access to both the inlet and outlet ends of the septic tank.  In Norton, steel covers are mandatory.  In Attleboro and Mansfield the homeowner has a choice between steel or plastic covers.  Either way, this is a great way to avoid a backup of sewage from your toilet, shower or wash machine discharge pipe.

100_1022[1]When performing a Title 5 inspection in Norton, it is required that a steel cover be installed over the outlet access hole of the tank so the homeowner can easily access and clean the effluent filter.  This homeowner added a second steel cover over the inlet access hole in order to be able to pump their septic tank more effectively.


Title 5 failure in Norton

100_0982The above picture is what we call a septic root snake.  If you plan on planting a tree next to your septic system, you should think again.  This particular system was only 12 years old and it failed a title 5 inspection because the roots of a nearby tree clogged all of the pipes in the leaching field.  If you are having any problems with your septic system, or need a routine septic tank pumping, and are located in the Mansfield, Norton, and Attleboro areas give us a call to set up an appointment.  We will be happy to help you with all of your septic system needs.

Another crazy day today filled with a variety of septic jobs.  Ribeiro Enterprises provides a variety of septic services and that was evident today.  We finished installing our lastest septic system, performed two title 5 inspections in Norton, and pumped 3 septic tanks.  More tank pumping tomorrow, along with a perc test,  grading a new construction lot, digging dry wells for a gutter system, and sealing a leaking septic tank.
