Cesspits, sewage treatment plants and septic tanks should all be pumped regularly to ensure your system functions as it should. Failure to properly maintain your unit can cause major issues.

All these things can ultimately result in complete unit failure, so it is better to arrange regular pumping and avoid costly repairs or replacement due to breakdown.

Sewage treatment plants treat waste differently to septic tanks. The plant circulates air within the treatment chamber to encourage bacteria growth. The bacteria break down the sewage resulting in cleaner effluent that is safer to release through the soakaway system or watercourse. Although this type of system can deal with waste more efficiently, they will still need emptying periodically to remove solids from the system.
A cesspit is a tanker underground that simply collects and holds septic effluent. These systems are intended to be pumped regularly as they do not process the waste. On the other hand, a septic tank separates the wastewater from the scum and sludge, releasing it into a drain field or soakaway system.
Sewage treatment plants process and break down waste more efficiently to septic tanks. As a result, they are kinder to the environment. If you have a septic tank that discharges wastewater into a watercourse then by law, you must arrange for it to be upgraded to a sewage treatment plant. This rule came into law in 2015 to prevent pollutants from entering watercourses.
