What is a septic tank/cesspit?
Septic tanks or cesspits provide a solution for sewage disposal if the property does not have access to the mains. A cesspit is a sealed pit or tank which means it would need emptying a lot more frequently than a septic tank. A septic tank is very similar to a cesspit but different in the fact that it is not sealed, it has a soakaway. A soakaway, when the tank is full, allows liquid to soak away into the ground meaning that the tank will need emptying much less frequently than if it was sealed.
