Septic system maintenance should be as easy for you as possible.
The experts at Cesspool Service Long Island intend for that to be the case by partnering with you to see that your system remains as problem free as it can be.
After locating your septic system our technician, as part of a scheduled inspection, will ensure that there are no cracked pipes or seals and that other components such as tees and baffles are in good working order. They will check the tank itself for signs of cracks or leakage, as well as any integrated internal pumps and other equipment.
Beyond what our experts can do to keep your system running, you can help in a large way by being careful with what goes into it (and what doesn’t).
A list of items to avoid flushing or pouring down your drain include:
In addition to the list above, you should take when disposing of strong chemicals like floor cleaners, paint thinners and other chemicals of this nature as they can kill beneficial bacteria that your system uses to break down and treat your waste and waste water.
When properly maintained through proper inspections and maintenance repairs combined with monitoring what goes down your toilets and drains, your septic system should be the last thing on your mind (as we believe it should be) and an investment in your property that adds value.
Septic System Repair

If your systems pump should break down due to age (a typical integrated system pump can last from between 7-10 years) or from damage caused by a serious clog or backup, we can take the necessary steps to repair or if necessary replace it. When asking the question “how much does a pump repair cost?”, depending on the specifics of your pump it may fall within a $200-400 range.
