Full Description

This is a 26,000 litre Clearwater cesspool designed to collect, retain and store potentially harmful effluent and sewage underground. The horizontal design reduces the excavation depth required on site and can help to avoid issues with groundwater levels.

Cesspools should only be used as a last resort, where no drainage field is feasible, due to unsuitable ground conditions or where infrequent or seasonal use, such as a holiday home.

Cesspools are used for storage only and have no outlet, so all incoming waste water from the property has to be emptied and tankered away. Whilst this is less cost efficient than using a sewage treatment plant, for properties without mains drainage access for sewage waste to be discharged into, cesspools are a viable solution.
Building Regulations state that you will need to give at least 45 days storage for a domestic property.

This tank is suitable for storing:
• Sewage
• Surface water
• Rainwater harvesting reservoirs

How to size a Cesspool;

British water state that the capacity of a cesspool should be based on 180 litres per person per day & must give 45 days’ storage before it needs emptying. For a single dwelling, a 4000 gallon or 18,000 litres is regarded as the minimum capacity required. This size cesspool would be only suitable for a maximum of two people, for every person added the size of the cesspool must be increased by 6800 litres.

Designed and manufactured in accordance with BS 6297 and the requirements of the Building Regulations Approved Document H.
