Our professionals can handle any problem you might encounter with your cesspool or septic system.

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 Floral Park if you are interested in learning more about maintaining your septic system and cesspool.

EZ's Cesspool Tips

  • Ensure the accessibility of the septic tank covering, for future pumps and maintenance inspections.
  • Consider promoting your cesspool system to a septic system, if possible.
  • Do not use your water needlessly or excessively.
  • Beware what is going in your grease trap
  • Schedule routine cesspool treatment & pumping
  • Add chemical additives & liquid enzymes (e.g. Rid-X)
  • Don’t pour grease or solvents into the system.
  • Avoid frequent, long showers or baths.
  • Make sure all water flows away from the disposal field – including deflection of surface water, roof drains and sump pumps.

Some information about Floral Park, NY

Floral Park is an incorporated village in Nassau County, New York, United States, on Long Island. The population as of the US Census of 2010 is 15,863.

The area that is now Floral Park once marked the western edge of the great Hempstead Plains, and by some reports was initially known as Plainfield. Farms and tiny villages dominated the area through the 1870s when the development of the Long Island Rail Road Hempstead Branch and Jericho Turnpike cut through the area. Hinsdale had more than two dozen flower farms after the Civil War. The present-day village of Floral Park was once called East Hinsdale.

In 1874 John Lewis Childs arrived in the area to work for C.L. Allen as a seed seller. After building his own seed and bulb business and starting America’s first seed catalog business, Childs bought a great deal of land in the area. To promote his own business and the local horticultural industry, Childs named the local streets after flowers and renamed the area Floral Park. The expansion of the Floral Park Post Office and nearby village businesses are attributed solely to the success of Childs’ business. When the local Post Office took the name Floral Park, the Long Island Rail Road followed suit by changing the name of the East Hinsdale station to Floral Park in 1888. Formerly part of Queens, Floral Park became part of the new county of Nassau in 1899, and it was incorporated as a village in 1908. Childs served as its first president starting that year.

In 1903 the village boasted more than 200 acres (0.81 km2) of Childs’ flower beds. The massive volume of his mail order business grew the local post office to such an extent that it drew comparisons with the post offices of Chicago, Baltimore, and Boston.

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.
