Septic Tank Safety: What Cleaning Products Are Considered Harmful

Cesspool Maintenance: Harmful Cleaning Products?

Your Long Island Lake Grove,NY cesspool and septic tank should always be in proper working order. It is very important that you practice basic cesspool maintenance. The septic tank especially needs to be taken care of properly. The wastewater from your home needs to flow into your tank easily.

Although cesspools can withstand a lot of chemical corrosion, not everything that gets mixed into it is a safe bet. It is truly important to know how chemicals affect your waste management. Everyday household products ultimately make their way into the cesspool and septic system.

What are the effects of chemicals on cesspools?

A lot of damage can be caused to your septic tank by chemicals that reach it. There is a high cost associated with septic system repairs. Keeping an eye on what enters your septic tank will help you avoid such a costly situation. Approximately 100 chemicals are present in a septic tank.

Most of these chemicals are derived from household cleaning products that are not properly disposed of after they are used. The septic system is definitely going to be adversely affected by certain products that contain harmful toxins. Due to this fact, it is important that harmful chemicals should not be poured down the drain in large volumes.

You will contaminate the beneficial bacteria in your septic tank through this action. Depending on the extent of the damage to your septic tank, you may need to pay for cesspool pumping or a new cesspool installation.

What types of products should be avoided in terms of the use of this product?

In the event that these types of products manage to reach your septic tank, you might have to deal with some serious problems. In my opinion, there are several eco-friendly ways to dispose of these products, but it is more important that we refrain from putting harmful products in the environment in the first place. In order to avoid the use of some of the more dangerous products, you should take care to avoid using the following products:

  • Fuels

Some information about Lake Grove, NY

Lake Grove is a village in the town of Brookhaven, Suffolk County, New York, United States. The population was 11,163 at the 2010 census. The village is officially known as the Incorporated Village of Lake Grove.

The area of Lake Grove was settled in the early 18th century along Middle Country Road, which was then part of the Old Kings Highway, originally a Native American footpath. The community’s first church building, built in 1818, was the First Congregational Church of New Village. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002, the building has been preserved and is depicted on the village seal. In 1870, Lake Grove established its first post office, which carried the mail to and from Lakeland station (discontinued in 1883) by horse and wagon. The area was variously called Lakeland, Lakeville, New Village, Ronkonkoma or West Middle Island until it settled on the name Lake Grove in mid-19th century, after the groves of trees near Lake Ronkonkoma.

During the early 20th century Lake Ronkonkoma became a popular area for recreation, which prompted many small summer houses built on private roads of Lake Grove. In 1921, a new post office was erected in the eastern part of the area and given the name of . The next significant housing development built in Lake Grove was called Brook Lawn and was located on Stony Brook Road, which later grew into Stony Brook. More developments followed and the population of Lake Grove increased rapidly. In 1954, newly built Nesconset Highway created a major commercial crossroad in Lake Grove, which prompted the construction of the Smith Haven Mall in 1968, which made the local residents become concerned about the impact of new businesses and increased traffic in their community. In order to gain local control of the zoning and planning, Lake Grove was incorporated by a vote of 552 to 332 on September 9, 1968.

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.
