A cesspool is a pit which acts as both a settling chamber for solids and a leaching system for liquids.  The use of cesspools may overload the capacity of the soil to remove bacteria, viruses, and phosphorus, and to nitrify ammonia and organic nitrogen compounds.

A conventional septic system has a tank where solids can settle and begin to degrade, a distribution box, and a soil absorption system (SAS) that further treats the effluent by removing some of the bacteria, viruses, phosphorus, and nitrogen).  To ensure that your cesspool is operating correctly it is highly recommended that it is regularly serviced and inspected.

If you require a cesspool service or are considering a cesspool replacement please do contact our office at 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com

Cesspool Services by All Clear Septic

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that all cesspools in Rhode Island pre-date 1968, the first year regulations for septic systems took effect. Cesspools are considered substandard systems. They don’t treat wastewater, they merely dispose of it. Cesspools concentrate the wastewater in one location, often deep within the ground and in direct contact with groundwater, causing groundwater contamination. This groundwater flows into drinking water wells and surface waters contributing to adverse public health and environmental impacts.

 In contrast, conventional septic systems place the wastewater well above the level of soils saturated by groundwater and they disperse this effluent over a large area, which results in substantial removal of pathogens and other pollutants.

Therefore, property owners with cesspools are recommended to have them regularly serviced to ensure that they do not fail and continue to operate correctly
