Welcome to our first post on this blog. I hope you find it useful and that you get a lot from it.
The common question most asked of a cesspool pumping service on Long Island, what is the difference between a cesspool and septic tank?This is similar to what is a difference between a modern HVAC system and the traditional boiler and air conditioning found in older homes.
A cesspool is a watertight tank that holds all effluent (liquid and solid) and has no outlet. It must be emptied frequently. A septic tank on the hand uses bacteria to breakdown effluent and discharges it to the surrounding area. This is a question that comes to mind when considering issues such as septic tank maintenance cost.
