Get Pumped! 5 Reasons It’s Time to Get Your Cesspool Pumped

 

Every homeowner has tasks that they need to perform that may not be the most pleasant. If there’s a leak in your ceiling, they patch it. When the lawn mower gets clogged up with grass, it needs to be emptied. Such is the way of the septic tank; there always comes a time when it needs to be pumped out.

Proper cesspool maintenance is a good thing! If your Long Island cesspool is not properly cared for, the damage could be very serious. If it isn’t, the results from built up additives and chemicals could potentially cause you and your family health risks, not to mention damage to your home.
But how do you know when it’s time to “get pumped”? The team at Quality Cesspool, one of the top cesspool services on Long Island, has the answers! Read on for the top 5 warning signs that your cesspool needs to be pumped.

Sluggish Draining/Flushing:

 

Has the water in your home been flowing with some sluggish energy? This could be a sign of needed pumping. If it’s taking a while for your sink or bathtub to drain, this could be a warning sign. Maybe your toilet doesn’t flush with the zest that it used to. Call Quality Cesspool for a septic tank pumping. These signs are pretty valuable to alerting you that it’s time to get pumped!I

 

Strange and Unpleasant Odors:

 

When a septic tank fills up, gasses don’t have anywhere to be released. So that’s when some foul smelling gasses will find their way into your home. They come through toilets, drains, and the area surrounding your outdoor septic tank. The worst part is that these smells aren’t only unpleasant, they could be potentially toxic as well. If your nose is catching a whiff of sulphurous or sewage like odors, it’s definitely time to call us and get pumped!

 

The Grass is Unusually Greener:

Yes, lush green grass is pleasing to the eye. However, the grass around your cesspool should match the rest of your yard. When the color does not match, it could actually mean a problem for your cesspool. If it looks like the area around your cesspool is looking especially fresh and green, it could be getting some extra fertilizing from extra liquid waste. This means that you need to call Quality Cesspool for a good old fashioned cesspool pumping.

 

A Non-Swimming Pool:

 

Does your yard look like an unkept swimming pool? Bad news! When a cesspool is backed up, water will pool around your yard, and especially around the septic tank. If you are noticing standing water on your property and around your tank it’s time to….yup, you guessed it…get pumped!

 

Backed Up Sewage:

 

This is probably the sign of needed cesspool pumping that you will not experience. However, if you haven’t paid mind to the earlier signs, raw sewage backing into your property is a very serious likelihood. If you notice any sewage backing up, get on the phone to Quality Cesspool immediately. You should also not go near the area of the sewage because that stuff could be toxic! Backup sewage could mean you have a real septic emergency on your hands, so do not wait to call us.
