A cesspool: it’s that dirty little part of your home that nobody wants to think about, but think about it you must. It collects all the wastewater that drains out of your house, which means it does a pretty important job. If you neglect it, you’ll end up with a massive – and costly – mess on your hands.
Fortunately, there are ways that you can tell if your septic tank is reaching capacity. If you notice any of the following telltale signs, it’s time to call a Long Island septic tank service.
If your morning shower turns into a bath because the drain isn’t emptying fast enough or your kitchen sink is overflowing with murky water while you’re washing the dishes, your cesspool could be to blame.
If you’ve tried clearing the clog to no avail, there’s a pretty good chance that your septic tank has reached – or is about to reach – capacity. Slow emptying drains – especially more than one – area surefire sign that your cesspool needs to be pumped. Why? Because once the tank is full, there’s nowhere for the wastewater to go, so instead of going down, it stays put.
If you hear weird gurgling sounds coming from your toilets or drains, it isn’t a boogieman (thank goodness!), but you’ve probably got an even bigger problem; your cesspool may be full, or there might be a blockage somewhere in the plumbing.
When a septic tank is full or a blockage develops, air can get stuck in the pipes whenever water goes down the drains; hence a gurgling sound. If you hear odd noises coming from your plumbing, don’t dismiss them and assume they’ll go away because they won’t and the tank will eventually overflow. Contact a reputable septic tank service Long Island as soon as possible.
Cesspools collect some pretty gross stuff. Everything you flush down your toilets, the dirty water from your showers and sinks, the dingy water from the laundry; it all ends up in the cesspool. When all these things combine, they create a very pungent smell that would make a skunk smell like a bed of roses!
If you are catching the foul whiff of sewage, you need to put a call into a Long Island cesspool company ASAP! That smell will only get worse when the tank overflows, which will likely soon happen after that nasty smell arrives.
Puddles in Your Yard
If it hasn’t rained in a while or your sprinklers haven’t been running, yet there’s a pond of water in your lawn, it could mean that your cesspool is overflowing.
When a septic tank is at capacity, solid waste material can trap the piping in the drain field, which means that the water in your tank (along with some of the nastier stuff it’s holding) will end up collecting on your lawn.
The Sight of Sewage
The last – and the most obvious sign – of failing cesspool is raw sewage. It’s the grossest sign, too! When the tank is full or clogged, sewage will back up into your drains, and it’s something you really can’t miss.
Lower drains, such as those in your basement or on the first floor of your home, will be the first place you’ll see the sewage backup; however, if the problem isn’t addressed, it could impact higher drains, as well. At the first sight of sewage, call a cesspool service company without delay! Not only is raw sewage gross, but it’s downright dangerous.
East Northport is a hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) in the town of Huntington in Suffolk County, New York, United States. The population was 20,217 at the 2010 census.
Soon after the establishment of a village in the Huntington area, English settlers sought to further expand their territory. On July 30, 1656, land was purchased from Chief Asharoken, head of the Matinecocks Native American tribe, part of which consisted of the land that is today known as East Northport.
Two distinct communities formed in the area now known as East Northport. The more populous settlement known as Larkfield was located on the northern side, near Vernon Valley (now part of Northport). Larkfield originally developed near the location of Genola Cemetery, just north of the modern-day junction of Larkfield Road, Vernon Valley Road, and Laurel Road. A second community located on the southern side was known as Clay Pitts, named for its vast deposits of red clay. This clay which had been used by Native Americans to form pottery was used by the Europeans to form bricks for construction. The land between Larkfield and Clay Pitts was well suited for agriculture, and the region prospered in the late 18th century as a thriving farming community by supplying produce to markets in New York City and Brooklyn.
In 1868 the Long Island Rail Road opened a station within the village of Northport. However, just a few years later the LIRR decided to move the Northport station to a new location in Larkfield to facilitate further railway extension to Port Jefferson. The new railway station located at Larkfield Road and Bellerose Avenue opened on January 13, 1873. Although the station retained the name of Northport, train conductors would refer to it as “East of Northport”, because the station was located east of the railway junction which used to direct trains north to the old station located in the village of Northport. Despite the fact that East Northport is primarily south of Northport, the area became known thereafter as East Northport. The Larkfield Post Office formally changed its name to East Northport in 1910. The East Northport, New York post office building was renamed the Jerome Anthony Ambro, Jr. Post Office Building in 1998.Learn more about East Northport.
