Septic Systems

Though most properties throughout Boston, Dorchester, Quincy, & Milton, MA now use modern city sewer systems to dispose of waste water, many properties still operate using a private, underground sewage treatment plant also known as a septic system. Consisting of a series of underground sewer pipes and a large septic tank made of steel or concrete, Septic systems are the center of your plumbing and work to filter waste water from your property into clean water that drains into the ground. Septic systems can be small-scale to fit the needs of a private home or large scale to fit the needs of a commercial, industrial, or office building.

An issue with your septic tank or septic system as a whole can lead to costly and dangerous plumbing disasters from drain clogs to property damage and contamination. Luckily, Boston Drain Company is on duty around-the-clock to provide the fast & efficient service you need.
