Cesspool Services

Like a septic system a cesspool is designed to hold sewage for a home. Cesspools, sometimes referred to as leaching pools, are underground pits with concrete of cement walls. The wastewater from a house flows into the cesspool and slowly drains into the soil surrounding the walls. A cesspool may need to be frequently pumped to keep lower holes open for water flow.

Regular Cesspool Pumping Service

The frequency of your pumping will depend on a number of factors (including household size) that our specialists can aid you with. A family of 4 should pump their tank every year to prevent septic backup issues.

Septic Tank and Cesspool Treatment

Many household and commercial septic system treatment products effectively kill beneficial bacteria from your system. We’ll help reintroduce the proper amount.

Filters & Cleanings

If your system has a filter, we’ll clean it with every service if the cover is to grade or accessible at “ground level.” We recommend you install a filter if you don’t have one already. They’re affordable and effective.

Free 5-Point Inspection With Every Cesspool Pumping Service

With every cesspool system pumping, we perform a free 5 point inspection of your system.  Here’s what we check for:

  1. The condition of your cesspool system pumping covers to make sure there are no cracks or corrosion.
  2. The structural integrity of your precast concrete tank to make sure there is no water infiltration into the tank.
  3. The Inlet Tee to the cesspool to make sure it’s in place. The Inlet Tee has an outlet filter that we clean with every pumping.
  4. The liquid level of the cesspool. It should be at the outlet invert or at the bottom of the pipe.
  5. The main line from the system to the house. We’ll have you flush your toilet to make sure there is a free flow into the tank with no obstructions.

Cesspool Pumping: How Much Does It Cost?

The cost of a septic pumping depends on the size of the septic tank or cesspool system. A smaller septic tank is 500 to 750 gallons and larger tanks can hold upwards of 1,250 to 2,500 gallons. An average size septic tank in Southeastern, MA is 1,250 -1,500 gallons. A very large tank holds 2,500 gallons. Pricing can vary based on the different sizes of tank as well as other factors that are specific to each job. You can contact us to receive pricing specific to your tank.

Bay State Customer Review

"I had not had my septic system pumped in quite a long time and I had septic backup. Bay State came out the day after I called them and pumped my septic system in under 20 minutes. They also cleaned my tank and checked my system to make sure it was running properly."
