Cesspool Replacement in New Jersey
In some cases, a cesspool replacement is needed to repair a septic tank. Before septic tanks were common, sewage from homes was often disposed of in covered vertical pits called cesspools. The cesspool was an early predecessor of the current-day septic system, providing a subsurface system for disposal of waterborne sewage. The use of cesspools was primarily driven by convenience, and their location was governed mainly by the nearest available land. Sometimes cesspools were constricted in the basements of urban buildings.
Cesspools are now viewed as undesirable by public health officials due, in part to historical experiences with overused and failed systems as well as increased concerns for groundwater protection.
Cesspool Replacement Process Description
A typical cesspool is a cylindrical hole in deep soil, several feet in diameter. There is usually a porous inner wall of stone, masonry, precast concrete rings, or other material strong enough to shore up the soil. The outer surface (between the masonry wall and the outer soil wall) is filled with gravel. There is a concrete lid and, on top of that, soil is backfilled to grade.
Raw wastewater flows into the top of the inner chamber. The inner chamber retains and partially digests the solids, and the effluent seeps through to the gravel-filled outer chamber, and then into the surrounding soil.
