Cesspit Emptying in East Grinstead, Guildford and the South
| Maintenance and Installation

If you own a home or run a business without a mains sewer connection, you will have a cesspit, or a septic tank installed, for collecting sewage or wastewater. A cesspit is the most basic collection system. It is a sealed tank, most often installed underground, with an inspection cover to grant access for liquid waste removal. What exactly happens when you need a cesspit emptying, and who do you trust to take on the work? What happens if you don’t have a cesspit emptied at scheduled intervals, and what are the risks you face?

Cesspit Installation and Maintenance

In an age where there are more cost-effective alternatives available, a cesspit installation isn’t the first liquid waste collection choice for many homeowners or businesses. Septic tanks and sewage treatment plants require less maintenance but, for properties that can’t discharge waste through a soakaway or ditch, a cesspit is the most suitable option.

P.J. Cole (Southern) Ltd can offer you a full supply and installation service.

A cesspit installation usually sees a cylindrical collection chamber positioned underground at a depth of between 2 to 3 metres. Access to the tank is via a manhole cover and most installations have a capacity to hold 45 days of sewage and wastewater. Cesspits have alarms fitted to let you know when the tank reaches its fullest point.

Because of the 45-day capacity, we usually recommend cesspit emptying at intervals of six weeks.

Our technicians and septic tank installers also cover Andover, Basingstoke, Brighton, Brockenhurst, Chichester, Crawley, Dorking, East Grinstead, Eastbourne, Epsom, Godstone, Guildford, Haywards Heath, Horsham, Lewes, Lymington, Lyndhurst, New Forest, Petersfield, Redhill, Reigate, Ringwood, Salisbury, Sevenoaks, Southampton, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells, Uckfield, Winchester, Windsor, Woking, and Southern England with a cleaning, servicing and repair service. Maintenance is essential for cesspits because the pipes clog with solid build-up. High-pressure jet washing removes blockages to keep everything flowing cleanly and freely.

Cesspits | General Binding Rules

If you have a cesspit, you do not have to comply with the General Binding Rules, and you do not have to apply for a permit. However, you must effectively maintain your cesspit, and have it emptied on a regular basis. You will need a registered waste carrier to do this. Also, make sure that your tank doesn't overflow. This can be an environmental hazard so always work with a professional installer for fitting and a registered waste carrier for cesspit emptying and maintenance.

If you want to install a new cesspit, you will need planning permission and building regulation approval. Cesspits need a minimum 18,000-litre capacity for every two users, with a provision of 6,800 litres for each additional user.
