Cesspit’s Services Greater and Central London – London Sewage Pumps
A cesspit should not be confused with a septic tank, these two methods of dealing with sewage are infact very different. A cesspit is a sealed underground tank that simply captures and holds sewage form the property. It does not process or digest the sewage, simply holding the waste until it has to be emptied. It therefore fills up rapidly and waste has to be removed on a regular basis. For older properties without mains drainage and where the grounds are unsuitable for a soak away septic tank, a cesspit London is often the solution.

Greater and Central London Septic tank maintenance
Unlike a cesspool, a septic tank processes sewage by settling out and partially digesting the settled sewage using natural biological processes. It also discharges a liquid effluent into a soakaway system specially created for that purpose. As a result, it needs emptying much less often – typically once a year. Nonetheless, at some point a septic tank London and its soakaway will run into problems, maybe with land drainage issues and often after long periods of wet weather. This will be the fault of the drain field rather than the septic tank itself. London Sewage Pumps in central London can help with septic tank emptying and all septic tank maintenance and repairs.
