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.
