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.
