Why are Cesspits and Septic Tanks in Lancaster So Important?

There are many reasons why properties in Lancaster and across South Cumbria might need cesspits and septic tanks. These alternative waste management solutions are only used when connection to the mains sewer lines isn’t possible. Connection to the mains sewer lines can be impossible due to:

  • The Property’s Location – Many properties are built too far for an easy connection to the mains sewer lines. This can happen with domestic, commercial or industrial properties. Due to your building’s location, relying on septic tanks or cesspits can be the only feasible option.
  • Over Capacity Sewage Lines – If your property or facility generates too much waste for the mains sewer lines, you may not be able to connect to them. If your property would put the nearby sewage lines over capacity, you could cause serious damage to the system as a whole. In these cases, you will need to rely on septic tanks and cesspits.
  • New-Build Communities and Facilities – Both domestic new-builds and commercial or industrial facilities may be required to utilise septic tanks. These buildings and properties generate large volumes of waste, which can easily put too much stress on adjacent sewer lines. As such, large septic tanks are often the most effective solution.

If your property is required to deal with any of these conditions, septic tanks are the most effective solution. The experienced team of drainage engineers at Drain Doctor South Cumbria are here for you. We can provide a range of comprehensive services to suit your needs.
