They must have to check a tide table before they can flush the toilet or wash themselves!!!
Maybe that was the overflow tank and there is no leaching field (uncommon on Long Island older cesspool systems to have a leaching field)???
If that was the main cesspool then high tide or not, that pool doesn't drain well if the level is higher than the inlet/outlet pipe.
To me, that looks like a clogged cesspool system.
