What is A Cesspit?

A cesspit, also known as a cesspool, is a fundamental component of wastewater management systems designed to collect and temporarily store sewage and wastewater in areas where conventional sewer systems are not available or practical. Essentially, a cesspit serves as an underground holding tank that retains all the sewage and wastewater generated by a household, business, or property.

Unlike septic tanks, there is no treatment process or outlet. Instead, all waste is stored withing the cesspit, ultimately requiring more regular emptying and servicing. Cesspits are typically made of concrete, brick, or plastic and have a limited capacity.


The team at Blue Box Hire are on-hand and ready to provide you with portable toilet hire services that you can rely on.

Ensuring the legal and responsible disposal of waste from a cesspit is a critical aspect of cesspit maintenance. We are committed to adhering to all relevant regulations and guidelines governing the proper handling and disposal of cesspit waste.

Our trained professionals follow strict protocols for the safe removal and transport of cesspit waste to authorised treatment facilities or disposal sites, where it undergoes the appropriate processing to minimise negatives environmental impacts.

Great service, quick to reply and decent prices. The cleaning happens once a week but the days are a bit random, no biggie as it's still once a week.

I arranged for a toilet hire for my house building work. Fortunately, Blue Box Hire Ltd were much better organised than my builder, as I found that their service overall was excellent. Office admin, accounting, and site maintenance was first-class. They are competitively priced but for my money, that is a bonus, as I value service in equal measure.

Areas We Cover


How does a cesspit work?

Cesspits collect sewage and wastewater and hold them until they are pumped out and transported to a treatment facility or disposed of in compliance with local regulations.

Are cesspits and septic tanks the same thing?

No, they are not the same. Septic tanks treat wastewater to some extent before releasing it into a drain field, whereas cesspits do not treat the sewage; they simply store it.

How often should a cesspit be emptied?

The frequency of cesspit emptying depends on its size and the amount of sewage generated. It typically ranges from once every few months to once a year.

What are the signs that a cesspit needs emptying?

Signs include slow drains, foul odours, gurgling noises in plumbing, and sewage backup into the property.

Can I empty a cesspit myself?

It is not recommended to attempt DIY cesspit emptying due to health hazards and legal regulations. Professional cesspit service providers should handle this task.
