Septic tanks

Septic tanks provide an affordable, efficient and environmentally friendly way to deal with wastewater. As a method of sewage treatment, septic tank configurations vary to suit the requirement.

Septic tanks work in conjunction with a drainage field to treat the wastewater effectively and return it to the environment.


Cesspits provide a similar solution to septic tanks, collecting your waste and sewage. The difference between a cesspit and a septic tank is that cesspits do not process or treat the wastage in any way. They can fill up at a fast rate and require emptying more frequently.

Cesspits are typically used when the ground is unsuitable for the waste to be treated. This can include areas in close proximity to water sources.

What can Willow Pumps offer you?

At Willow Pumps we are able to help you with all of your septic tank or cesspit needs – whether you need regularly scheduled maintenance, emptying, repairs, or even replacement parts or tanks. Our team are on hand to help.


Both septic tanks and cesspits are responsible for collecting wastewater and sewage from domestic and commercial properties that are not connected to the mains sewer, meaning it is absolutely vital to keep them in good condition. No matter whether you have a septic tank or a cesspit, all forms of sewage treatment plants require maintenance. Keeping them well maintained is essential to ensure that they can store and process waste accordingly.

Sewage treatment plant emptying

No matter what form of sewage treatment plant, septic tank, or cesspit you have on your property, emptying and cleaning your septic tank or cesspit can help prevent any overflowing or malfunctions from occurring, whilst helping to maintain efficiency.

One of the questions we often get asked about cesspits and septic tanks is how regularly they should be emptied. How regularly you empty your septic tank or cesspit all depends on the size of the property and how frequently it is used. It’s recommended that you empty your tank every 6-12 months to maintain effective performance.

At Willow Pumps we offer a sewage treatment plant emptying service. If you have any questions about your septic tank or cesspit and you want an expert opinion, contact us to have your sewage emptied today.

Regular sewage treatment plant maintenance

Septic tank and cesspits that are not emptied on a regular basis is at risk of causing contamination to surrounding areas. Pre-planned maintenance is a perfect solution to minimise the risk of overflowing, blockages or costly repairs being required in the future by giving your sewage treatment plant a regular health check.

What can you do to maintain your sewage treatment plant?

Pre-planned cesspit or septic tank maintenance can help prevent any unexpected issues at a later date. However, there are some things you can do yourself in order to help protect your sewage treatment plant from damage. Basic things such as ensuring no sanitary products, food waste, oils or grease enter the pipes can make a massive difference to the life of your septic tank. Using biologically friendly products is also recommended.

No matter what style of cesspit or sewage treatment plant you have, at Willow Pumps we are here to help. We can help with any form of maintenance, repair, or replacements, and our emptying service is based around being economic and efficient for your convenience.
