Septic tanks collect and treat wastewater and sewage.  They are an affordable, efficient and environmentally friendly way to deal with wastewater generated by your business.   Whereas cesspits simply collect wastewater and sewage, and are typically used when the ground is unsuitable for the waste to be treated and is, for example, located in close proximity to water courses.

How frequently your septic tank or cesspit needs emptying depends on the size of the property and how frequently it is used but as a minimum, it’s recommended that you empty your tank every six to 12 months.  It is also worth noting that cesspits tend to fill up quickly and will need to be emptied more frequently than septic tanks.
