Unlike septic tanks, cesspits do not treat or discharge waste, they simply collect it. Because of this, it is important to arrange regular emptying to ensure your system does not overflow and leak into the surrounding environment. At Drainage Facilities Management Ltd, we have many years’ experience providing cesspit emptying and cesspit cleaning services in Bedford, Bishop’s Stortford, Cambridge, Hertford, Hitchin, Letchworth Garden City, Milton Keynes, Peterborough, Stevenage, St Neots and surrounds.
As a drainage company approved by the Environment Agency for disposing of sewage waste, DFM provides reliable services which maintain the effectiveness of systems while ensuring waste is disposed of in an appropriate and environmentally friendly manner. With a fleet of specialist vacuum tankers, we can tackle jobs of every size, including large-scale commercial and industrial requirements.
Our thorough services reduce the risk of blocked systems and overflow. We also help avoid system failures and maximise the functionality of units.
We recommend and provide periodic emptying and cleaning of cesspits. This is because the build-up of solids is a common reason for slow water flow and cesspit failure. Our engineers advise on suitable cleaning plans for individual requirements, and our drainage company can offer this on a regular contract basis.
When undertaking cesspit cleaning, we use high-pressure water jets which effectively clear substances without causing damage to the cesspit itself. This method is also suitable for clearing associated pipework and blocked drains.
When your cesspit in the East or South East of England requires emptying and cleaning, it is important to choose reputable contractors who uphold the highest standards of health and safety. This is an assurance you have with DFM.
There are a number of rules surrounding the handling and treatment of waste in the UK and, as a qualified drainage company, DFM makes sure all work we carry out fully complies with relevant legislation.
It is illegal for anyone but a licensed waste disposal contractor to empty and dispose of effluent from cesspits and septic tanks in the UK. Waste must be taken to a fully recognised and licensed treatment facility, which regulated water companies operate.
As an Environment Agency approved company, our customers have complete peace of mind that we are safely and legally handling waste in Bedford, Bishop’s Stortford, Cambridge, Hertford, Hitchin, Letchworth Garden City, Milton Keynes, Peterborough, Stevenage, St Neots and all the surrounding areas.
Every member of the DFM team undergoes complete training to ensure we consistently deliver the highest standards of workmanship. This includes training in environmental awareness and confined space entry, as well as relevant methods and protocols for cesspit cleaning and the other work we undertake.
