Why Do I Need To Locate My Cesspool?

If you had no idea where your water heater was located, you might get away with it for a while. However, what happens when it’s time for maintenance on the unit or something breaks and you need repairs? Locating your cesspool ensures that you’re prepared to either handle the health of the system or hand the situation over to pros who can handle cesspool repair. As the homeowner, you’re the first line of defense for identifying symptoms of cesspool troubles — we can’t come to help you if you don’t know to call us in the first place.

Besides being prepared for emergencies and service, cesspools need evaluation over their lifespan. Being able to watch for signs of puddled water and lush vegetation could save you from a sewer backup. Plus, it’s important to keep the land over your cesspool protected, but you can’t do that if you don’t know where it is!

Finding Your Cesspool Step By Step

The first thing you can try when finding your cesspool is simply walking around your home and property. This might sound silly, but you could have easily overlooked sewer cleanouts or the metal sewer lid that would reveal the cesspool’s location. 

  • You can rule out any areas that are covered by concrete, buildings, large trees or next to your home or well. Your cesspool also shouldn’t be hundreds of feet from your home — after all, it has to be connected to your home by pipes! You might even see a small dip or hill where your cesspool was buried and the ground wasn’t leveled.
  • Once you’ve narrowed down some potential locations, the next tool you can use is a metal soil probe. This thin piece of metal can be bought at local home supply stores. A soil probe will allow you to test about two feet under the soil for solid, metal objects.
  • If you have any kind of sewer map from county records or previous owners of the home, this could be extremely helpful in targeting the right area. 

If you can find your cesspool, it’s important to mark it for future reference! Use a garden decoration, rock or even a small marking flag. Make sure that you’ll be able to find your cesspool again when you need to!
