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 build up of sludge that needs to be pumped. Typically for homes in the Hamptons, cesspool pumping is needed every 3 to 5 years.
