Don’t have a cesspit or cesspool?
Perhaps one of our other services may be of interest to you:

Cesspits and cesspools need to be emptied frequently to avoid the build-up of solids and prevent any possibility of overflowing. A cesspool or cesspit is a sealed underground storage tank which holds sewage until it is emptied and disposed of. Therefore, a cesspool will require more regular emptying than a septic tank. Cesspit emptying is done using a vacuum tanker. 


The tankers at R & A Cleansing are equipped with an internal water supply and use specialist vacuum pumps and long hoses to ensure emptying and washing is a swift and safe process. Removal, disposal and sewage treatments are carried out afterwards with a full duty of care available. We can arrange regular service visits to ensure your tank does not overflow. Get in touch now with any questions or to arrange an appointment anywhere in Cornwall or West Devon to look at your septic tank.


Alternatively, call us on 01566 782852 for 24hr emergency callout.

Environmentally Responsible Cesspool Emptying

From foul odours to serious health risks, overflowing or malfunctioning cesspits can cause a multitude of problems for businesses and homes alike. Left untreated, a congested cesspit can render residential properties inhospitable and put a business out of action for a significant period of time. Regular cesspit emptying and maintenance is the surest way to avoid putting the safety of family members and employees at risk.

Whether you require regular cesspit drainage, cleaning or maintenance, we’ll gladly offer our cesspit services in order to get the job done. Our highly trained team is well-equipped to ensure that all sewage is removed responsibly and that your cesspit is properly cleaned and maintained on a regular basis.

The Benefits Of Regular Cesspit Maintenance

Above, we mentioned some of the dangers associated with poor cesspool maintenance, but ensuring your system doesn’t fail is only one advantage of frequent cesspit cleaning in Cornwall. The average family household should have their cesspit professionally emptied at least once every three years, but calling our experts for cesspit emptying and cleaning annually is highly recommended.

Even if your cesspit isn’t full, solid particles can quickly build up and form a blanket on the surface inside your cesspit, which can lead to problems ranging from total failures to slow-flowing water. We’re a cesspool company in Cornwall that you can trust to remove the entire contents of your cesspit, ensuring it remains functional and economical for a lifetime.

If you have any questions about cesspool management in Cornwall, then don’t hesitate to contact our friendly and knowledgeable professionals for expert advice. The next time you’re searching for “cesspool emptying near me in Cornwall,” look no further than R&A Cleansing.
