     A septic system is a mini on-site sewage treatment system used when municipal sewers are not available.  Septic systems on Long Island usually consist of a primary receiver (septic tank) and a drainage area (cesspool or drainage field).  Homes constructed after 1972 will have a septic tank as the primary receiver.  Some homes built prior to 1972 will have a cesspool as a primary receiver and a cesspool or multiple cesspools serving as the drainage area.  If properly installed and maintained on a regular basis, your septic system will provide many years of trouble free service.
WHAT IS AN OVERFLOW?
     The cesspool (drainage area) commonly referred to as an overflow is designed to leach water only.  The cesspool should receive water only- solid waste will clog drainage area.  The home owner should have their pumping contractor inspect the overflow system when the solids and sludge are pumped from the septic tank to insure proper drainage.  If it is determined that the overflow requires service the home owner may elect pumping, aeration and application of drainage additives to the overflow to restore drainage.
