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.
Old Bethpage is a hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) located on Long Island in the Town of Oyster Bay, Nassau County, New York, United States. The population of the CDP was 5,523 at the 2010 census. It is served by the Old Bethpage Post Office, ZIP code 11804.
In 1695, Thomas Powell bought about 10,000 acres (40 km2) from local Indian tribes, including the Marsapeque, Matinecoc, and Sacatogue, for 140 English pounds. This land, which includes present day Bethpage, East Farmingdale, Farmingdale, Old Bethpage, Plainedge, Plainview, South Farmingdale, and part of Melville, is known as the Bethpage Purchase and is approximately 3.5 miles (5.6 km) east to west and 5 miles (8.0 km) north to south.
Powell called his land Bethphage, because it was situated between two other places on Long Island, Jericho and Jerusalem, just as the biblical town of Bethphage (meaning “house of figs”) was situated between Jericho and Jerusalem. Today, the Long Island place formerly called Jerusalem is known as Wantagh and Island Trees, while the placename Jericho is unaltered. Over time, Bethpage was spelled without the second “H”. Powell’s 14 children split up his purchase and it evolved into several farming communities, and the one in this mostly central part of the purchase retained the name “Bethpage”.
A railroad spur completed in 1873, known as the Bethpage Branch of the Central Railroad of Long Island, ran to a brickworks plant which had opened on what is now Battle Row and Bethpage-Sweet Hollow Road in the 1860s. The railway was built to transport bricks for the construction of Alexander Stewart’s Garden City.For a few years, regularly scheduled passenger traffic also appeared in timetables, with the station being called Bethpage. The line was abandoned in 1942. Remnants of a locomotive turntable can be found in the woods of Bethpage State Park on the east side of Round Swamp Road. The brickyard continued operations under different owners until 1981, with different sections known variously as Bethpage Brickworks, Queens County Brick Manufacturing Company, Post Brick Company, and (after Nassau County split from Queens County in 1899) Nassau Brick Company. The pitted terrain at the brickworks was used in investigations by Grumman for digital mapping of Earth.Learn more about Old Bethpage.
