What’s the difference between a Septic Tank, a Cesspit and a Cesspool?
Septic tanks are part of a sewage treatment system and have an outlet that runs to a soakaway.
A cesspit or cesspool is a holding tank without an outlet. It is not part of a sewage treatment system, it is just used for the storage of waste.
How do you empty a septic tank?
We send out one of our vacuum tankers for all septic tank pumping.
We have equipped these specialist trucks with a long flexible hose. The tanker operator will insert this hose into your septic tank and a powerful suction force is then used to empty all the waste out. We then take it away and dispose of it properly for you.
How often should I empty my septic tank?
We recommend that you arrange to empty your septic tank once a year to ensure it works well.
It’s also important to note that the tank emptying schedule varies from tank to tank – it’s dependent on the type of tank, the size of the tank and how many people are in your home or workplace.
