Cesspit Emptying Cooling

Cooling is a village and civil parish on the Hoo Peninsula, overlooking the North Kent Marshes, 6 miles north northwest of Rochester, England. According to the 2001 census the parish had a population of 209, which increased to 216 at the 2011 Census.
Cooling was recorded in the Domesday Book when it was held by Bishop Odo of Bayeux (half-brother of William the Conqueror). The most notable surviving feature of the village is Cooling Castle, built on the edge of the marshes during the 12th century to defend the neighbouring port of Cliffe from the threat of French raiders.
Cooling Castle, located at the west end of the village, was built by Sir John Cobham in the 1380s following a French raid on the Thames Estuary. It was attacked and badly damaged in a brief siege by Sir Thomas Wyatt in January 1554 during his unsuccessful rebellion against Queen Mary. The castle was subsequently abandoned. A farmhouse and outbuildings were constructed within the ruins. Today the outer gatehouse of the castle can be seen from the side of the road between Cooling and Cliffe.
The parish church of St James dates from the late 13th century. Although it has long been classified ‘redundant’, and no longer used for regular worship, Jools Holland married Christabel (former Countess of Durham) there in August 2007. The church is maintained by the Churches Conservation Trust and is open to visitors daily. In the churchyard are a group of children’s gravestones which are widely considered to have inspired Charles Dickens’ description of the churchyard in the opening scene of the novel Great Expectations.

Many people confuse a cesspool and a cesspit with a septic tank. While they both provide the same function, which is to collect wastewater and sewage from properties that are not connected to the mains sewer.
A cesspit differs to a septic tank in that they don’t treat the sewage nor do they have an outlet to allow the liquid part of the waste to drain away to a soakaway. Simply put, all the waste that goes into a cesspit, stays in the cesspit, which is why cesspits require more regular emptying compared to a septic tank.
Also, the costs of operating and maintaining a cesspit typically make them unsuitable for domestic use. On average. the annual costs to empty a cesspit can run anywhere between £2,000 to £8,000 in emptying charges alone. Not to mention the fact that many homes just don’t have the space required to install a cesspit. An average 3-4 bedroom home would require a tank capacity of upwards of 40,000 litres, resulting in a tank over 10 metres long and 2 metres wide!
Cesspits and cesspools can also be quite smelly compared to septic tanks as they require venting to allow trapped sewer gases to escape.
HOW OFTEN DOES A CESSPIT NEED TO BE EMPTIED in Cooling?
This will depend on the level of use, and size of your tank. A cesspit will typically require emptying more often than a Septic tank as there is no treatment of the waste, it is simply held in the tank until it is time to be emptied.
Cesspits will typically need to be emptied every 45 days or so, you may have a cesspit alarm that will tell you when it is time to empty it.
