PumpingCesspool pumping is recommended when your cesspool is full can not meet the wastewater disposal demands which are being placed on it. By pumping the cesspool and using aeration, chemical treatment, and or natural enzyme treatment you will extend the usefulness of an aging cesspool. We dispose of the waste in a environmentally friendly fashion using only licensed wastewater processing facilities.
AerationOlder cesspools lose their ability to drain as the bottom of the cesspool becomes clogged with sludge. Cesspool aeration accomplished by opening the cesspool and driving a long metal pipe into the bottom of the cesspool. The pipe is connected to a high powered air compressor. Air escaping the end of the pipe churns the bottom of the cesspool increasing its ability to drain. Can be combined with other services to extend the life of a aging cesspool.
Chemical TreatmentA cesspool chemical treatment is done to dissolve the sludge which has accumulated on the sides and bottom of the cesspool. The sulfuric acid which is dumped into the cesspool breaks down the sludge increasing the ability of the cesspool to drain.
Natural Enzyme TreatmentCesspools utilize bacterial action to break solids contained in wastewater. The bacterial action can be impeded by commonly used residential and commercial cleaning products which enter through wastewater. Treatment of your cesspool with natural enzymes will help your system breakdown solids more efficiently and increase its lifespan.
