Common problems with cesspools

A cesspool is simply a storage tank with an inlet and no outlet - when the tank is full, the raw sewage must be tankered off-site to a sewage treatment works. As the cesspool provides no treatment of effluent or discharge, it may be necessary to empty regularly and can be consequently expensive.

Many of the older brick and concrete-built cesspools are prone to leaking. Leaking contents into the ground can cause ground pollution – a cesspool leaking and installed in a high water table will take water in from the surrounding ground, and require further emptying during wet periods.

Modern cesspools are constructed from GRP/plastic and are watertight, although we would always recommend either a septic tank or sewage treatment system unless there is no other option for the site. If you require assistance, give us a call on 01388 537030.

  • We were very please with the work. Project management was excellent. Even though it was a dry week in a dry spell disruption to the ground was minimal given the machinery involved and the site was left neat and tidy.
