Lagoons and Cesspools

Cesspools and lagoons require much more maintenance than a traditional septic tank. They must be pumped and cleaned regularly to dispose of waste safely.

Cesspools are deep pits dug as a substitute for traditional septic systems. Liquids are prevented from entering the soil system by placing a layer of stone or concrete to hold the waste.

Lagoons are industrial ponds where sewage flows from the working septic system into the specially treated water the breaks any excess waste.

Due to the nature of these systems, both must be inspected, cleaned, and pumped frequently to prevent any disastrous emergencies.

This is my second septic service with Ball. Steve came out and did some quick digging and revealed the caps and went right to work. Steve gave me some advice on modifications that could be made that would make servicing the septic system easier and save me money in the future. Steve was kind and courteous.
