Cesspools

Cesspools are purely a holding tank without an outlet, and will require emptying on a frequent basis depending on usage. 

Cesspools are a solution for locations without mains drainage where the discharge of effluent is not possible due to unsuitable ground conditions or limited space to construct a soakaway.

Standard sizes range from 1,000 litres to 84,000 litres, however larger tanks are available and are made to order – Please call the office if required

Sizing criteria for cesspools

British Water sizing criteria should be used when calculating the capacity of a cesspool based on a loading of 200 litres per person per day in residential applications. The tank should be of a sufficient capacity to hold 45 days worth of effluent. For a single dwelling 18,000 litres (4,000 gallons) is the minimum allowable capacity. This capacity is suitable for two residents only. 

For non-domestic applications please call Septic Tank Supplies on 01923 261660 and we will be happy to size the correct cesspool for you application

Manufacturers strongly recommend the installation of a high level alarm on cesspools in order that the level in the cesspool can be monitored and to ensure spillage or a disruption in service is minimised.
