Nobody likes to talk about that dirty little secret sitting in their yard, but if the wastewater system for your home is a cesspool, talk about it you must. Since it collects all of the water that you flush down your toilets and drains, it’s a pretty integral part of your home. Just like any other part of your house, your cesspool needs to be maintained.
Here’s a look at some of the top reasons why having a Long Island cesspool company maintain your wastewater disposal system is an absolute must.
Imagine when you’re taking a shower, you end up standing in a tub full of water up to your ankles. Picture the stench of raw sewage filling your home and property. Visualize flushing the toilet and instead of going down, the water (and everything in it) comes pouring back out.
These are just some of the scenarios that could become a reality if you fail to maintain your cesspool. Though a septic tank can accommodate a good bit of water, there’s only so much that it can hold before it reaches capacity. Plus, all of that muck that gets flushed down the drains can get clogged in the pipes that lead to the tank. There’s also the risk of tree roots pushing their way through one of the components of your system, causing extensive damage that would require a new Long Island cesspool installation. By having your septic system professionally maintain, you can avoid total chaos and the inconvenience and expense that comes along with it. You should schedule yearly inspections and arrange for a pumping every three to five years.
Your Home will be a Safer Place
You may be your castle, but you definitely don’t want a moat of wastewater around it! Not only is it gross, but it’s also highly dangerous.
When you fail to maintain your septic system, a backup is pretty much inevitable. When your system overflows, you and your entire family are at risk of harm. The wastewater and sewage that your cesspool holds are extremely volatile. Anyone who is exposed to a cesspool backup is at risk of suffering serious health problems.
Not only will having your cesspool maintained to reduce the chances of a backup, but it will also minimize the chances of a collapse. Though septic tanks are very durable, with age, constant use, and improper maintenance, they can collapse. A cesspool collapse is a serious hazard that has the potential to be fatal.
By having your system inspected and maintained, you can avoid these complications, thereby improving the safety of your entire family.
You might be avoiding cesspool maintenance because you don’t want another bill to pay; however, by avoiding service, you’re going to end up spending big bucks in the future.
Poorly maintained septic systems overflow, and cleaning up the mess can cost a small fortune. If it fails or collapses, Long Island cesspool installation will be necessary, the price tag of which can be quite high. Having your septic system professionally maintained, you’ll actually end up saving yourself a good chunk of change in the long run.
Jericho is a hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) in Nassau County, New York, United States, on the North Shore of Long Island, approximately 29 miles (47 km) east of Midtown Manhattan. Its population was 13,567 as of the U.S. 2010 Census.
Located mainly in the Town of Oyster Bay with a small part in the Town of Hempstead, Jericho was part of the Robert Williams Plantation in 1648. The English families who settled in Jericho were, or soon became, Quakers, members of the Society of Friends. Many fled from persecution in England and in the New England Colonies. They sought a peaceful existence as farmers. The name of the area was changed in 1692 from Lusum to Jericho after the town in the Middle East near the Jordan River mentioned in the Bible as part of the Promised Land.
Elias Hicks married Jemima Seaman in 1771 and moved to her family’s farm in Jericho, where he soon became a noted preacher of Quaker doctrine. All the Quakers suffered during the British occupation of Long Island in the Revolutionary War. The practice was to quarter troops in homes of residents, who had to provide room and board for them. The Quakers continued to protest the entire concept of war itself. After the war, peace returned to Jericho, and the neat farms and businesses began to prosper. A Friends Meeting house was built in 1788 in Jericho that is still used in the 21st century. A Quaker school was built in 1793, the Charity Society of Jericho and Westbury in 1794, and slavery was abolished in 1817, with Hicks’ help.Platt Rogers Spencer’s Log Seminary in Jericho, New York
A post office was established in 1802, a cider mill in the mid-19th century, the first public elementary school in 1905, known as the Cedar Swamp School. Improvements to infrastructure were made with the founding of the Jericho Water District in 1923. As the population increased, a new elementary school was built in 1953 (Robert Seaman School), and a Volunteer Fire Department established in 1938. The population kept increasing until the last elementary schools in Jericho were built, the George A. Jackson Elementary School in 1957, the now closed Robert Williams School in 1961 and the Cantiague School in 1963. When the Village of Muttontown was incorporated, the cider mill was within the village limits. Because most Gold Coast villages wanted to remain business free areas, many do not have their own post offices or ZIP Codes. Therefore, Jericho Post Office which serves this area of Muttontown is displayed as the official USPS mailing address and leads to the misconception that the cider mill is in Jericho.Learn more about Jericho.
