How Do Cesspools Work?
Homeowners likely know this at this point, but every time you run water from your faucet, do laundry, or flush your toilet, all of the waste and water leaves the house and flows into the cesspool. It is in the cesspool that some of the waste will float and some of it will sink. And as the amount of water increases in the septic tank, equal amounts of water and waste gets pushed out into the cesspool. Eventually, cesspool pumping is necessary as the septic system fills up.
Issues From Not Pumping Your Cesspool
Without regular cesspool pumping, the sludge will build up, which then leads to some serious concerns. First, the sludge can start to block the drainage from the home. This is how a sewer line gets backed up. This will clog sinks and drains and send terrible odors into the home. And it may even cause sewage to flow into the house. Not good! A second issue that arises is the sludge will start to enter the septic field and the soil. This will not only poison the ground and hurt the environment, but it will also seep upwards and create horrible smells across your property.
Ultimately, how often a septic tank needs pumping depends on its use. This means you should have septic maintenance done about once a year. This way we can check on it and make sure all things are in order, or if work needs to be done to empty it sooner than later. The last thing anyone wants is an overflown sewage system!
Regular Septic Pumping is Crucial
The purpose of a septic tank is to separate solid sewage from the wastewater that enters the tank. The solid waste falls to the bottom of the tank as sludge. The light waste, like oil and grease, remains at the top and creates a scum layer. Then there is the middle, which mostly remains free of solids. However, it contains the nitrogen and phosphorous chemicals, which are helped as fertilizer. Pipes reaching into the center of the tanks removes this fertilizer water and filters it down through the septic field and ultimately into the earth.
So where does the cesspool pumping come in? Well, the solid waste and scum do not leave the tank. And they need to be kept out of the earth. Otherwise, there will be an infiltration of harmful bacteria contaminating the soil, as well as the awful smell that comes along with it. Some of this sludge decays due to the bacteria action, but it does not eliminate all of it. Eventually there is a buildup of sludge that needs to be pumped. Typically for homes in the Hamptons, cesspool pumping is needed every 3 to 5 years.
