Cesspit Do's & Don'ts

Because it is a sealed system there is little in the way of household liquid that cannot be discharged into a cesspit. However:


  • Empty the tank regularly; at least once a year.
  • Do use biologically friendly products.
  • Do have the system emptied regularly.


  • Do not allow flammable or non-organic liquids to enter the system.
  • Do not allow the service area (manhole) to become overgrown or obstructed.

Please be aware that prolonged bad weather or heavy rain can cause the ground around the pit and manhole cover to become saturated. This can cause the tank to fill up faster than usual.
