We offer supply and installation of septic tank and Cesspit treatment plants for domestic and commercial use for properties that are not connected to mains sewers. The main difference between the two, is that with a cesspit there is no processing or treatment involved.
Septic tank installations are predominately used for projects that have poor drainage or are not connected to the mains sewage network. A septic tank works by collecting the wastewater in a large underground tank which has two chambers buried underground in the same way as a cesspit. As wastewater enters the first tank, solids settle at the bottom and begin to decompose, liquid then flows into the second chamber allowing for smaller solids to settle and water to exit the tank through soak-away.
A cesspit is a sealed underground tank that collects wastewater and sewage with no processing or treatment involved. A cesspit is usually located underground with a manhole cover giving access for waste collection.
Cesspits need to be emptied regularly. The time between empties depends on the size of the property, number of occupants and the size of the tank itself – it may need to be emptied monthly, quarterly or annually, or any point in between.
We can offer advice or an onsite consultation to discuss the best solution.
