Cleaning Products and Septic Tanks: What’s Safe and What Isn’t?

Taking care of your cesspool and septic tank is one of the best ways to ensure the health and safety of your family. It is important to keep your drains free of toxic chemicals in order to prevent any hazards from flowing into your tank. Your septic tank must be able to easily receive wastewater from inside your home. In spite of the fact that septic tanks can withstand a good deal of chemical corrosion, it is still important to know how everyday chemicals might affect them. There is a possibility that you are directly pouring toxic chemicals into your septic tank from common household products without even realizing it. If the products you use are not considered safe, they might cause hazards in your septic tank and require you to seek the help of Quality Cesspool, one of the top Northport, NY cesspool service companies.

What Can Chemicals Do to Septic Tanks in VarCounty County?

There are more than 100 chemical pollutants in an average Northport, NY septic tank, caused by cleaning products that aren’t disposed of correctly. Many of these toxins will likely harm the system, so you should be aware of what chemicals are in each cleaning product you’re using before pouring them all down the drain. By doing this, you’ll contaminate the beneficial bacteria that breaks down your wastewater and septic tanks run off, ultimately harming the environment.

How to prevent a septic emergency in Suffolk County

Did you know that households in Suffolk County often contain more than 3 to 5 gallons of potentially harmful products like toxic cleaners and paint? Many people try to avoid them by following simple guidelines. First, use up all the cleaning products in their bottles before they’re empty. Next, dispose of their unused labels at a recycling center or at a waste management facility.

It is also wise to avoid certain cleaning products altogether. Sometimes the chemicals in these products pose a threat to people with existing health conditions or those who are pregnant. Some common cleaning products to avoid include:

  • Fuels
  • Motor oil
  • Antifreeze
  • Solvent-based lubricants
  • Pesticides
  • Lawn care products

If you avoid disposing of these kinds of products down the your sink, you could save yourself from health risks or costly cesspool service repairs in Northport, NY.


Are There Any Products That Are Safe to Pour?

Even though most cleaning and household products might cause harm to your septic tank, there are actually some products that may be safe to pour down the drain of your kitchen sink. Certain products that don’t usually threaten a septic tank’s performance include ammonia, bleach, and laundry detergents. Products like these get diluted when they finally reach the tank. Disinfectants, bathroom cleaners, and pine cleaners are other good examples of cleaners that are “septic tank safe. These cleaners could be considered safe because they contain ammonium compounds like alkyl dimethyl or benzyl ammonium chloride. These are safe not only for septic tanks but for groundwater as well. Before disposing of any kind of chemical, it is a good idea to read instructions on the label of the bottle before disposal.

You should always be cautious about using chemicals in any capacity, not just when pouring them down your drains. The safety of your family is your utmost concern, and we also don’t want you to spend too much money on a Long Island cesspool service when you could easily avoid any kind of emergency.

Frequently Asked Questions

When a cesspool is full, several things can happen that will indicate your cesspool must be emptied. Your lawn where the tank is located may form pools of standing water, the grass may become greener than the rest of the lawn, and unusual smells could begin to emit from the ground and the plumbing inside the house. If you notice any of these warning signs, hire a cesspool company to pump the tank.
A general rule of thumb is to have your cesspool pumped every 2-5 years. The frequency will depend on usage, and mostly how many people are living in the house. A professional can inspect the tank and suggest when and how often you should have it pumped. It is essential to maintain your cesspool properly to avoid overload which can lead to other issues such as sewage backing up into the house.
The cost to have a cesspool pumped depends on the size and condition of the tank. Pumping a regularly maintained cesspool can range from about $200-$600. Some companies may charge by the gallon, others may give you a static price. A tank left for too long could result in the need for a cesspool replacement, which could cost thousands!
When a cesspool needs to be pumped, there are several warning signs that indicate it needs to be emptied. Drains in the home may become slow, clog often or produce loud gurgling sounds. Sewage may back up into the home causing pungent smells which could be hazardous to your health, and if ignored, could lead to sludge overflowing and causing serious property damage. Standing water also may form above the tank along with odors which indicate immediate action should be taken.
