What size is your Cesspit?

One of the first questions we tend to ask when we receive an enquiry for a Cesspit empty is “What size is your Cesspit?”.

Although you may assume you should know, we completely understand that it is not the simplest question to answer. You may have recently purchased or rented the property and there may be little knowledge on the waste system.

We normally ask, though, in order to assess the amount of waste we need to collect. This helps us organise the correct equipment and vehicle for the job in hand.

As this information is quite difficult to know off-hand, we have put this blog together to help you find out the size of your Cesspit.

Tip 1 – Documents.

In some circumstances, the property owner will have documentation of the Cesspit installation. This documentation will normally hold the information we need to identify the exact size of the tank itself, or at the least give us a good indication.

Tip 2 – Inspection.

We will normally recommend an inspection of the tank on arrival for the empty. If no information can be found then an inspection is the best way for us to gather the information we need.

In this scenario, we will normally bring what we assume to be correct equipment on the day of inspection so we can get right to work if we feel we are fully prepared to empty the tank there and then. In the majority of cases we are able to guess accurately.
