Cesspit Installation

Installing a Cesspit

If your property is unable to reach a mains sewer, does not have a ditch to discharge into, or you are in an area where water cannot percolate through the ground, you will require the installation of a cesspit. At Owls Hall, we have years of experience installing cesspits, with many satisfied customers. For more information on how we can help you, get in touch with our friendly team.

Cesspit Installation

4% of the population of the UK do not have access to mains drainage. In most cases a septic tank or sewage treatment plant is used. However, in some cases, water cannot be discharged through the ground or in a ditch, in this eventuality a cesspit will be required to store the waste ready for removal by a licensed waste carrier.

  • Sewage and greywater (e.g. from baths, washing machines, showers) is sent to the tank through pipes in the house.
  • The tank is designed to hold 45 days worth of wastewater
  • There is no outlet to a cesspit, it is used to just hold the water.
  • We always fit a high level alarm to notify you when the tank is full
  • A cesspit is only used when you cannot use a septic tank or sewage treatment plant.
