Local Cesspit / Septic Tank Emptying ServiceIf you live in a rural area and your home is not connected to mains drainage it is likely to have a septic tank or cesspit / cesspool.
A Cesspit / Cesspool is a sealed tank for the reception and temporary storage of sewage which will require emptying when full.
septic tank provides an effective way of treating wastewater from baths,
sinks and toilets from a house or several houses which are not connected
to the mains drainage system. It is usually either a large rectangular
box made of brick, stone or concrete or a bottle-shaped plastic tank buried
underground not far from the property it serves. A septic tank works like
a simple sewage treatment works and the treated effluent drains from the
tank’s outlet pipe normally to a soak away or stream. Waste material is
allowed to settle in the tank and is digested by natural bacteria which
must be allowed to breed within the tank. Over time partially-decomposed
solids build up on the bottom of the tank. This sludge has to be removed
regularly to make sure the tank continues to work properly and to prevent
the soak away becoming choked.
De-sludging should normally take place every twelve months, this period may be extended but not normally beyond two years.
