Fully Licensed and Accredited London Drainage Company

Fast and Affordable Cesspit Emptying & Cesspool Pumping Services

A Cesspit or cesspool retains all sewage effluent in a sealed tank. This type of system is typically used in areas where there can be no runoff or treatment due to environmental concerns. Cesspits require regular emptying in order to prevent overflowing and other unpleasant problems.

Whether you are a homeowner or manage a large commercial business, First 4 Drains can offer a comprehensive service to empty as well as provide essential maintenance to keep your cesspit in good working order.

For your added benefit, First for Drains can offer CCTV drain surveys if there is a problem that needs identifying, and our specialist engineers use high pressure water jetting to remove any blockages found and ensure that everything is flowing freely.

What's the difference between a cesspit and septic tank?

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?

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.
