Services For Cesspools
Cesspool pumping is recommended when your cesspool is full can not meet the wastewater disposal demands which are being placed on it. By pumping the cesspool and using aeration, chemical treatment, and or natural enzyme treatment you will extend the usefulness of an aging cesspool. We dispose of the waste in a environmentally friendly fashion using only licensed wastewater processing facilities.
Older cesspools loose their ability to drain as the bottom of the cesspool becomes clogged with sludge. Cesspool aeration accomplished by opening the cesspool and driving a long metal pipe into the bottom of the cesspool. The pipe is connected to a high powered air compressor. Air escaping the end of the pipe churns the bottom of the cesspool increasing it’s ability to drain. Can be combined with other services to extend the life of a aging cesspool.
A cesspool chemical treatment is done to dissolve the sludge which has accumulated on the sides and bottom of the cesspool. The sulfuric acid which is dumped into the cesspool breaks down the sludge increasing the ability of the cesspool to drain.
Natural Enzyme Treatment
Cesspools utilize bacterial action to break solids contained in wastewater. The bacterial action can be impeded by commonly used residential and commercial cleaning products which enter through wastewater. Treatment of your cesspool with natural enzymes will help your system breakdown solids more efficiently and increase it’s lifespan.
Like everything, your cesspools will eventually need cleaning. We offer a full range of cesspool cleaning services to extend the life of aging cesspools.

Services For Septic Tank Systems
Septic tanks need regular pumping to remove solid waste which has not been broken down by bacterical action. The frequency of pumping will depend on the amount of solids contained in your wastewater and the types and quantity of chemicals and cleaning solutions which enter the septic tank. Chemicals can have negative effect on bacterial action which will result in more frequent septic tank pumping. We dispose of all wastewater in a environmentally sensitive manner to only licensed wastewater processing facilities.
