Dayna knows cesspools are gross.
They are basically a hole in the ground where waste and filth collects. Scum and liquid waste flow down into the soil immediately surrounding it.
This makes it hard for the soil to purify it the way it does with septic tanks.
Plus if the sludge and leftover waste piles up too high it’ll block the drainage holes and then your in for a nasty surprise (and smell). Even if you avoid this, sometimes the soil can’t absorb anymore waste and it bubbles to the surface…
“Ew,” Dana thinks with a shudder, “I’m glad we won’t have to worry about that anymore.”
None of this is good for the environment. In fact, cesspools are so far behind in the cesspool vs septic tank debate that septic tanks now replace old cesspools regularly!
Speaking of septic tanks, here is what Reid knows about them.
