A cesspool system or cesspools are underground leaching structures that were built and used for centuries now. A cesspool used to be the main component in the removal of wastewater (also known as blackwater. When cesspools are used as the main drainage component solids and sludge dump directly into the sand at the bottom of the cesspool system. These are well-based septic systems, and they are covered by a top cap usually made of concrete or hard stone. Scum floats to the top forming a layer of solid floatable material which can make the cesspool clogged. Cloggs and over fills are the most common issues that make a cesspool fail and backup. A lot of systems have two cesspools. The second cesspool is an overflow cesspool that is in place to leach water into the sand while the main cesspool handles the solid material. Sometimes older homes have only one cesspool. Suffolk county mostly have a few systems like this. Suffolk cesspool systems run the gambit in regards to the types and variety of drainage systems in use. Although laws change and the use of cesspools in Suffolk county has become a debate.

On Long Island cesspool companies like Murphy's Cesspool and Septic Service are hard at work to ensure that a cesspool not working becomes a functioning cesspool again.
Below are a few ways to maintain a cesspool. Each method listed has its pros and cons. Suffolk County has specific laws that must be followed, and Murphy’s Cesspool & Septic Service follows all protocols for not only Suffolk County, but all of Long Island Commercial and Residential locations.
Aeration is the chemical approach to cleaning a cesspool. It is completed by pouring sulfuric acid into the well or tank. The sulfuric acid breaks down both solid waste and sludge creating an air passage. Waste is then dissolved the same way you would clean the pipes of your home with a chemical agent. The negative effects of this method of maintenance is that it can harm your cesspool or septic system in the long run.
Hydro-Jetting is illegal in Suffolk County without using the proper regulation precautions in each incorporated village. This should be the first thing to note when considering this approach. Now, the process involves high-pressure water to break up and separate solid waste from the bottom and sides of a cesspool to clean it out through the leach system. Hydro-Jetting is the fastest way to clear a cesspool system, but you must follow all guidelines for Suffolk County regulations. Murphy’s Cesspool & Septic Service urges you to please think of the environment prior to deciding how to maintain your cesspool with any maintenance.
