Maine Septic Inspection FAILED

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on March 6, 2013 by mainesiteevaluations

Well we have had a few of these calls lately. Great to hear that real estate is being considered again and do not neglect to have a septic system inspection done on that property you may be considering.

Now a couple things to know;

1. If you hear that a septic tank or leach field was repaired and is now working, be very cautious. We have seen unsuspecting buyers believe that a repaired system is the same as a new system only to be calling us a couple years after moving in with their toilets backed up and a $12,000 price tag.  2. Just pumping the tank is not a septic inspection. You need to see inside the disposal area where past effluent levels are recorded. The property could of been vacant or unused before pumping, and 3. If you get a failed septic system inspection report you need to hire a Maine Site Evaluator to design a replacement system for that property. This will give you a detailed installation plan that can be estimated by a septic system installer.  From that point you can go back a negotiate with the seller.

We are always available if you have any questions or are in need of Maine Septic Design work on short notice. Cell is 229-7482 anytime. We are glad to help.

Expanded Septic Systems In Maine

Posted in septic, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on November 3, 2012 by mainesiteevaluations

Here is a septic tank we are installing as part of this expanded septic system. A White Knight Treatment unit will be installed in this tank to complete the expansion.  This unit effectively doubles the capacity of most existing septic systems by State of Maine  design allowances. That means you could add three bedrooms to an existing three bedroom septic system and only have to enlarge your septic tank capacity as in this homeowners situation. The leach field itself does not have to be touched. This minimizes the disruption to the landscaping and most important, it saves you money.

We welcome any inquiries on any of your septic issues.

Please call anytime. 800-244-2493

Spring Site Evaluations in Maine

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on March 20, 2012 by mainesiteevaluations

Recent trips in the field to the Rangeley Farmington area have proved that spring is really arriving with a fast snow melt making for easy conditions for conducting site evaluations in the Maine mountains.
In southern Maine the peepers were first heard this evening and with several days at or near 80 degrees the installation of septic systems will be well under way as soon as the road posting come off. If your thinking of septic design work we are always available to answer any questions, anytime. Just give us a call.
Enjoy the spring!!!

Well Water Treatment and Your Septic System

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on January 28, 2012 by mainesiteevaluations

We have noticed a high correlation between well water treatment systems that backflush into septic systems and the early malfunction of those systems. The most incidents we have seen are with iron removal. Now some will argue that water treatment has no effect on septic systems and we understand that drinking water quality is the first priority, but we would advise any one that they could expect to incur the cost of a new leach field earlier than people without well water treatment devises backflushing to their septic systems. Ask your water treatment professional how he can minimize or eliminate these discharges to your septic system if at all possible. You are welcome to call us anytime should you have any concerns.
We’d be glad to help.
