The Dirtiest Job: Let Someone Else Do It
When talking about septic tanks and cesspool pumping, there simply is not a way to sugar-coat what we are talking about. The fact of the matter is, if your home's plumbing is hooked up to a septic system, then everything that goes down the toilet ends up in a large concrete tank buried somewhere beneath your property; here it collects until the time comes for it to be pumped out.
If your home does have a cesspool, then you need to know the importance of proper cesspool maintenance. Some homeowners with septic systems have taken an "out of site, out of mind" approach to waste that has been flushed; avoiding the required maintenance of the cesspool. The particular homeowners learned a very revolting lesson when this avoidance turned into a cesspool emergency.
Not only is a cesspool failure or collapse a smelly and costly emergency, but it all could have been avoided by simple maintenance throughout the year. Maintenance is not difficult at all, you don't even have to go anywhere near the tank. All you have to do is call one of the many cesspool service companies like Quality Cesspool in New York, and they do all of the work for you. Services are very affordable and getting out of doing the dirty work is well worth the money.
So if you have a cesspool or septic system, heed the warning of those who have had their yards turned into a sinkhole of waste, and simply call a cesspool service company and let them schedule regular maintenance and pumping of your tanks. Trust us, you will be thankful.
