Not sure if I have to get my cesspool pumped or have a clog in my main pipe. Iíve never got my system pumped so my question is , do they clear the main pipe if there was a clog as well as pump the tank? Thanks

In my experience they are different jobs. Someone else may provide better info.

What are your symptoms...usually if you need pumping you get slow draining, toilet gurgles and possibly a wet patch on your lawn.

Slow draining. Toilet gurgles but no wet lawn. When the toilet is flushed water backs up into the tub but goes down the drain within 10 minutes

Most cesspool companies have the equipment to clear a main line too. Sometimes 1 causes the other

You won't always get a wet lawn (I don't.)
Sounds like your cesspool needs to be pumped.

Got it pumped. All three cesspool were full. And the mine pipe was clogged with a bunch of baby wipes. Nice gift left from the previous owners.
