Cesspool Services and Cesspool Replacement In Massachusetts

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that the word ‘cesspool’ does not conjure up pleasing images and if you are considering buying a property that word can certainly put a damper on some enthusiasm you might have for it. However with the proper maintenance a cesspool is not the problem that you may fear. A cesspool is a pit which acts as both a settling chamber for solids and a leaching system for liquids. In Massachusetts a cesspool is not always required to be replaced. Infact as stated on the Mas Gov website:

‘Only those cesspools that exhibit signs of hydraulic failure, are located extremely close to private or public water supplies, or otherwise fail to protect or pose a threat to public health, safety or the environment will need to be upgraded” For more information see:https://www.mass.gov/service-details/title-5-faq

However a cesspool does generally require more ongoing maintenance than a conventional septic system and 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. All Clear Septic and Wastewater services do provide property owners with cesspool services to ensure that they continue to operate correctly and efficiently. However if you decide to have you cesspool replaced we also have extensive experience with cesspool replacement. Today we have cesspool services and are starting a cesspool replacement in Wrentham, Rehoboth, Seekonk, Attleboro, Norton and Swansea MA. If you have questions about your cesspool or if you need a cesspool service or replacement please do contact our Norton Office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com

Cesspools Must Be Properly Maintained To Operate Correctly Or They May Need To Be Replaced

All Clear Septic and Wastewater ServicesAll Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have been contacted by a customer in Hingham MA who require a cesspool replacement. We also have cesspool services scheduled today in Scituate, Hanover, Hanson, Marshfield, Halifax and East Bridgewater MA. As stated on Mas Gov:

“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 sell a property you need a Title 5 Inspection to be done. Title 5 does not require that cesspools be replaced however:

“cesspools that exhibit signs of hydraulic failure, are located extremely close to private or public water supplies, or otherwise fail to protect or pose a threat to public health, safety or the environment will need to be upgraded (310 CMR 15.303). Also, cesspools must be upgraded prior to an increase in design flow (e.g., the addition of a bedroom to a home or seats to a restaurant”.

Our office in Norton is actually serviced by a cesspool and not a septic system or town sewer. We treat our system monthly with bacteria to keep it ‘healthy’ and operating correctly. Certainly a cesspool, if maintained, does not need to be a problem for your property.

If you are not on town sewer and have a cesspool which you are concerned may need replacing or simply needs servicing please contact our office to answer your questions or schedule an appointment on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com

Cesspool Maintenance Ensures It Is Working Correctly and Continues To Do So

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services has cesspool maintenance appointments today in Wayland, Acton, Stow, Carlisle, Marlborough, Northborough and Ayer MA. A cesspool is any pit or container that receives wastewater from a house or building. The term “cesspool” is usually used to refer to an open pit that is lined with rocks or concrete, but an underground tank or holding container that is not connected to a drainfield can also be defined as a cesspool. The main function of cesspools is the storage of wastewater. 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. Cesspools are only found servicing older properties because other more efficient means of waste treatment are now available. We provide cesspool services and repairs and have also provided cesspool replacement when required. We recently replaced a cesspool for a customer in Plainfield MA because it was starting to pollute the local groundwater. Ongoing maintenance of your cesspool by having it serviced and having pumpouts is especially important because to sustain the integrity of the environment you need to ensure your cesspool is operating correctly and the surrounding area is not saturated. If you have any questions about cesspools or wish to schedule a cesspool service please do contact our office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com

Cesspools Need Regular Maintenance

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services work with many customers that don’t have a conventional septic system on their property but instead have a cesspool. As stated on the Mass Gov website:

“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.”

Although cesspools are now out of date and there are more efficient and environmentally conscious alternatives Massachusetts does not require them to be replaced. They state that:

“Only those cesspools that exhibit signs of hydraulic failure, are located extremely close to private or public water supplies, or otherwise fail to protect or pose a threat to public health, safety or the environment will need to be upgraded (310 CMR 15.303). Also, cesspools must be upgraded prior to an increase in design flow (e.g., the addition of a bedroom to a home or seats to a restaurant).”

Happy Columbus Day from All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services

Today is the day we celebrate the anniversary of the arrival of Christopher Columbus in the Americas on October 12th 1492. While there are not many homes still around from that period some of us do still live in older homes, some of which have older cesspools rather than modern septic systems or town sewage. 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. Massachusetts does not require that cesspools be replaced however cesspools that exhibit signs of hydraulic failure, are located extremely close to private or public water supplies, or otherwise fail to protect or pose a threat to public health, safety or the environment will need to be upgraded.
