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.
Selden is a hamlet in the Town of Brookhaven in Suffolk County, New York, United States. The population was 19,851 at the 2010 census.
The farmers who first moved to what is now Selden in the mid-18th century referred to the area as “Westfield” (or sometimes as Westfields). One of the better known early residents was Captain Daniel Roe (1740-1820), who fought in the French and Indian War and served as a captain in the Revolutionary War, and for whom Captain Daniel Roe Highway is named. Roe built a house in Selden along Middle Country Road before the Revolutionary War. Roe is buried in a small family cemetery south of Middle Country Road behind the Old Westfield shopping center.From The Diary of Captain Daniel Roe, 1806-08 (1904), caption reads: “School house near home of Capt. Daniel Roe. Near the tree, at the right, tradition says the Tory Captain Richard Miller fell from his horse in 1776.”
Roe sided with the Patriots in the lead-up to the Revolutionary War. In the fall of 1776, Roe was assigned to lead a raid against the Tory and Hessian detachment near Selden led by his cousin Richard Miller. Miller was a wanted man, and Roe himself had pledged 10 pounds of the bounty offered for Miller’s capture. When Miller rode right by Roe’s house in uniform, he was confronted by Roe’s men and ordered to dismount. Instead, Miller fired his pistol and turned to flee, whereupon he was shot by the militiamen. Miller was then carried into Roe’s house, where he died.
A school district for the Westfield area was first created in 1815, carved out of the districts for New Village (now Centereach) and Coram. Originally named District 25, it was renumbered as District 12 in 1842, which it remained until the formation of the Middle Country Central School District in 1957.Learn more about Selden.
