If you own property on Long Island, there are pretty good chances that you have a septic tank. These tanks sit underground and they’re the most frequently used wastewater disposal method. While they’re effective at their job, like anything, they can malfunction. Exposure to the elements, shifting ground, excessive use, age, and lack of maintenance are just some of the reasons why a septic tank can fail. When this system does fail, you’ll need to hire an experienced and reputable Long Island cesspool company as soon as possible.
But how can you tell if there’s an impending breakdown that would necessitate the replacement of your septic tank? Here’s a look at some of the telltale signs that indicate a new cesspool is in your future.
Raw sewage has an unmistakable odor. Some might say that it’s the worst smell in the world. When your cesspool is on the verge of a breakdown, there’s a pretty good chance that you’re going to catch a whiff of that stomach-churning odor.
Your cesspool holds all of the black water that you flush down your toilets, as well as the gray water you flush down your drains. That gray water contains the remnants of shampoo, soap, laundry soap, and anything else that passes through the drains in your house. When combined, all of those things make a very noxious stench. If you smell that overpowering stink, it might be an indication that your cesspool has reached capacity; but, it could very well mean that your system is damaged and needs to be replaced.
What homeowner doesn’t want super green, lush grass? If, however, your lawn looks greener than usual and you haven’t added any fertilizer – and it’s only in one spot (near the cesspool drain field) – then your septic system might be on the fritz.
Wastewater is supposed to pass through the plumbing pipes and pour into the tank; however, if the tank or system is damaged in any way, that water will collect in your yard instead of the tank. The increased moisture content coupled with any raw sewage that’s coming out will fertilize your lawn, hence the green, lush grass.
If it seems like your tank needs to be pumped more than usual and you have a Long Island septic tank service on speed dial, it’s time to think about budgeting for a replacement system.
Septic systems are built to last a long time, which means that if you have a new home and you take proper care of your system, you might never experience any issues. But, if your home is older and you still have the original system, you could end up needing a new one installed. As the tank and pipes that lead to its age, it can start to breakdown, which means that it won’t function properly; hence the increased need for pumping.
