This Premier Tech 1000L Cesspit is constructed from high strength GRP (Glass-Reinforced-Plastic). Available in 2 versions for either concrete surround or granular surround (dry sites only). A Cesspit (or often referred to as a Cesspool) is simply a holding tank for sewage. A cesspit does not have an outlet like a Septic tank. It is a last resort to install a cesspit, only when there is no way to drain water through the ground or send treated water to a ditch would a cesspit be installed.
The term Cesspit is often confused with the term Septic tank, or sewage treatment plant.
Sizing a cesspit is easy. The minimum required volume for any domestic household is 18000L (for a one bedroom property containing 2 people).
For each additional person 6800L is added therefore:
- 2 people = 18000L
- 3 people = 24800L
- 4 people = 31600L
- 5 people = 38400L
- 6 People = 45200L
- 7 People = 52000L
- 8 People = 58800L
Some Commercial buildings may produce lower volumes of waste – For help with sizing please call us on: 01844 877030
This provides approximately 45 days of storage. A high level alarm is always recommended to alert the residents of the need for the tank to be emptied Removal of liquid from a cesspit has to be done by a licenced waste carrier. Cesspits are not allowed in Scotland unless it is for temporary storage while a permanent solution is being installed.
