Septic proper system Sludge Cesspool

Basic Septic System and Cesspool Process

Our certified team is well-versed in the installation, maintenance, and service your septic system needs. This underground treatment and disposal system contains a septic tank to collect organic solids that form a layer of scum. Bacteria convert the material to liquid.


Inorganic or inert solids and bacteria by-products sink to the bottom to form sludge. Clear water should exist between the scum and sludge layers – and it is only this clear water that should overflow into the septic system's soil absorption area.

We eliminate solid material overflow that clogs soil pores and causes system failure by looking for bacterial deficiency and sludge buildup. To ensure bacteria health, don’t use products that are harmful or fatal if swallowed.


Check the labels of these common products:

• Acids, polishes, and toilet cleaners

• Caustic drain unclogging products

• Cleaning compounds and disinfectants

• Detergents and bleaches


Wastewater flows into cesspool (or leaching pool) pits lined with concrete, brick, or cement block walls. Here, the wastewater drains or “percolates” into the soil through perforated walls.

Avoid Harmful Products

Cesspools used for overflow from septic tanks are more efficient than old systems because they handle fewer solids. When there's no septic tank for solids, cesspools need more maintenance and additional pools may be needed.
