Top Tips for Cesspit Maintenance to Keep Your Waste Management System Working Properly
Are you a cesspit owner and wondering how to keep your system in good working order? Proper maintenance and regular checks can save you money and help you avoid bigger problems. Here are our top tips for cesspit maintenance:
Check the levels of your cesspit frequently and ensure it is emptied regularly to avoid overflowing. An overflowing cesspit can be smelly and cause environmental and legal problems. It’s better to have a properly fitted and maintained alarm system within the cesspit to monitor the levels.
Be mindful of what you dispose of within your cesspit. Avoid dumping flammable or hazardous liquids that can damage the system. When cleaning the cesspit, use biologically-friendly household products instead of harsh chemicals like bleach.
Avoid flushing or draining anything that can block drains or prevent biological processes from taking place. Only dispose of biological waste in the cesspit.
Keep the area around the manhole cover clear and accessible for easy access during clearances. An overgrown or obscured manhole cover can make it harder to sort out any problems.
Following these tips will help you maintain your cesspit and avoid unnecessary problems.

What is a cesspit? A cesspit or cesspool is a sealed tank used for the temporary storage of sewage and wastewater. It doesn’t have an outlet for discharge, and its contents must be emptied and transported for treatment and disposal elsewhere.
