Cesspits

Cesspits

A Cesspit (often called a cesspool) is a sealed tank that stores wastewater from a property. Unlike other options, a cesspit stores all waste and requires emptying on a regular basis. It is used as a last resort where no discharge to ground or water course is achievable.

There are some alternatives to cesspits. If you have access to a ditch or stream you will need to use a sewage treatment plant. If your ground is permeable enough and you have enough room for a drainage field then you can use a septic tank. Both these options are preferable. If you need a cesspit and need to know what size to use, our handy “how to size a cesspit” guide is available. Alternatively, call us to discuss; we will be happy to help.
