Don't take any chances when it comes to abandoned cesspools. These dried cesspools are very dangerous since they tend to collapse after the brick-and-mortar lining weakens. Allow us to inspect your property before a dangerous collapse occurs, and if needed, we can quickly and properly fix this issue.
Abandoned Cesspools Are Very Dangerous
Over the course of many decades, most cesspools have been abandoned in favor of the more sanitary city systems. Thousands of cesspools have turned into dried holes lined with decayed fecal matter. These old brick cesspools tend to collapse after their brick-and-mortar lining weakens. As they collapse, they produce a suction that can pull people into them. Since 1998, several instances of people being pulled into collapsing cesspools have been documented. More than half of those people died in those collapses. In 2011, two New York teenagers drowned in a cesspool they had fallen into when it collapsed. Abandoned cesspools also produce methane, which can explode.
