Basic yet effective cesspool maintenance tips for the cold winter seasonby MANGANO PLUMBING We have been serving Long Island communities since
One of the numerous problems that many homeowners face during the winter season is their frozen cesspool or septic system. Considering a frozen cesspool can be a costly (and an inconvenient) problem, here are some effective cesspool maintenance tips that will help you avoid having a frozen septic system.
- Make sure you cover the pipes and manholes with a Styrofoam before winter comes.
- Make sure there is enough insulation inside the septic tank. You do not want to ruin your winter season with a problematic cesspool or septic tank.
- Always have an expert Sayville plumbing company inspect the septic system and ensure it is not already freezing. In case it is, run warm water in the system. This will help regularize the situation. However, make sure you do not overload the system by leaving the water running for long hours.
As much as possible, do not allow any traffic above the system. Vehicular or pedestrian traffic can damage the insulation inside the system. As you know, both compacted and loose snow does not allow insulation. Even compacted soil can significantly affect the insulation of the septic tank. So make sure that you keep all traffic off your cesspool.
In addition to taking note of these tips, you must also consider engaging expert cesspool service in Suffolk County to ensure that your cesspool works efficiently and lasts for years to come.
