    What is a Cesspit?

    A cesspool is a sealed, undercover storage tank that receives wastewater and sewage.

    A cesspit guides your home's wastewater into a high-capacity tank that can store a high volume of wastewater, giving you a long-term, dependable drainage system.

    A cesspool is a solitary compartment, typically constructed of brick or concrete.

    In contrast to a septic tank, there's no processing or treatment of the effluent liquid and wastewater in the receptacle.

    It is sometimes classed as an unfashionable process of waste disposal, and dates back to the Roman era!

    Why Do Cesspits Overflow?

    Gradually, the sewage and wastewater in a cesspool collects at the bottom of the container, which continues to fill up.

    Consequently, the sewage and wastewater gathered in the chamber should be pumped regularly.

    On that basis, it's important to get the waste removed from your cesspool.

    How Often Should My Cesspit Be Emptied?

    How often your cesspool needs pumping depends on the size of the tank, the size of the residence and how many people reside there.

    For example, some cesspits only need to be pumped every 12 months. But, others may need to be cleaned every quarter, or every half year.

    Your cesspit can generally be located by removing the manhole cover.

    If you recently moved in to a new home, it may be [resident to ask the previous tenants how often they had it pumped.

    Cesspits vs Septic Tanks

    In the drainage field, naturally existing waste-degrading aerobic bacteria dissolves any remaining waste, enabling the water to be naturally refilled.

    A septic tank is considered a more modern cesspit. Similar to a sewage treatment plant, a septic tank is used to treat wastewater and sewage through biological break down.

    Septic tanks can be installed in dwellings, as well as fitted in trade buildings to treat wastewater from kitchens and bathrooms.

    Put simply, a septic tank is a rectangular watertight receptacle that contains two compartments, separated by a wall, and is sunken underground.

    Septic tanks are usually installed in agricultural areas.

    This is because in cities and towns wastewater is usually transported and handled by a sewage system that's maintained by a local water company.

    A septic tank is constructed of two compartments.

    The first chamber is usually known as the 'settling chamber' and receives wastewater from an inlet pipe. In this compartment, lighter solids, oils, and scum rise to the top of the water.

    Sewage waste is drawn to the base where this is biodegraded by natural occurring bacteria.

    Any remaining liquid flows into the second compartment, and then out of the tank into the drainage field.

    The solid waste left at the base of the septic tank needs to be removed periodically as part of scheduled maintenance by a registered waste carrier, such as KD Drainage.

    Both septic tanks and cesspits collect wastewater and sewage and store it.

    With a cesspit, there's no processing or treatment of the wastewater.

    However, septic tanks use a simple treatment process that enables the water to escape from the container.

    In contrast, cesspits cannot filter any waste as they're lined with cement and stone. If left overflowing for too long, they can contaminate the surrounding grounds.

    There are no vents in a cesspit, meaning the waste stays inside the tank, however there is plumbing to release the fumes that collect over time.

    Cesspits require clearing more often than septic tanks and are frequently seen as a temporary sewage system.

    In some instances, cesspools can be installed with an alarm that alerts the owner when the container is at maximum capacity and needs empty.

    However, this must be done by professionals, such as our drainage engineers, as cesspools release toxic gases when the lid is opened.
