The fact that we’re here to handle the dirty work doesn’t mean that it’s not important to have a basic knowledge of your septic system, how it works, and the services that may be required to keep it running smoothly. Taking care of your cesspool is one of the simplest ways to avoid having to pay for major septic system repairs down the road. Septic systems consist of two different components; the septic tank installations and the cesspool, which is the area where the soil absorbs the waste provided by the septic tank. There are four main steps involved in the operation of the system.

Septic Systems: How They Work

Your septic system works in the following way:

  1. Waste material from the home will travel to the septic tank.
  2. Solids that are organic in nature will flow to the top of the tank, while solids that are inorganic in nature will settle at the bottom.
  3. The septic tank contains naturally occurring bacteria that converts organic solids into liquid.
  4. Solid and sludge layers are separated by clear liquid, which flows into the cesspool.

Why Would Your Septic System Fail?

Upon the completion of your cesspool installation, you will need to maintain your septic system in order for it to continue to function. When your septic system is not regularly maintained and serviced there will be a build up of solid waste that will then flow into the system’s leaching field as the solid waste accumulates. It is likely that the field will be permanently damaged as a result of severe clogging and the possibility of permanent damage. Aside from that, there is also the risk that household cleaning products like detergent, toilet cleaner, bleach products as well as septic tank disinfectants may kill the vital natural bacteria that exists within the septic tank.

Things to Know About Septic Tanks:

  • Septic tanks can be constructed of precast concrete, fiberglass or plastic.
  • Older tanks are sometimes made of steel, which has the tendency to break down over time.
  • Tanks should have at least a 250-gallon capacity for each person in the home.
  • Standard tank sizes include; 750, 1000, 1200 and 1500 gallons.
  • Newer, larger tanks are sometimes divided into two separate chambers to improve flow of waste.

With regular structural maintenance and check-ups, your home or business will run smoothly despite the septic system’s complexity. I would like to invite you to call 24 hour fully licensed EZ Cesspool in Babylon if you are interested in learning more about maintaining your septic system and cesspool.

  • Schedule routine cesspool treatment & pumping
  • Add chemical additives & liquid enzymes (e.g. Rid-X)
  • Don’t pour grease or solvents into the system.

How do I know if my cesspool needs to be pumped?

The need to pump out a cesspool can be indicated by several warning signs. There is a possibility of slow drains, clogged drains, or loud gurgling sounds coming from the drains in the house. Sewage backups can bring pungent odors into your home, causing health risks, and if ignored, can result in sludge overflowing and damaging your property. It is also possible for standing water to form above the tank, along with odors that indicate immediate action is necessary.

How often should a cesspool be pumped out?

Cesspools should be pumped every 2-5 years as a general rule. Frequency will depend on usage, but mostly on the number of people in the household. You can have the tank pumped by a professional who can inspect it and advise you when and how often to do so. To avoid sewage backing up into the house, your cesspool needs to be maintained properly to avoid overload.

How much does it cost to pump a cesspool?

Cesspool pumping costs vary according to the size and condition of the tank. In general, the cost of pumping a regularly maintained cesspool ranges from $200 to 600 dollars. Depending on the company, you might be charged by the gallon, or a fixed price. It could cost thousands of dollars to replace a cesspool if it’s left for too long, so make sure to maintain your cesspool regularly.
