SPH Plant has over 25 years of experience in waste removal and boasts a fleet of over 100 vehicles, giving us the ability to carry thousands of gallons of waste.

Our quick response times, experience, and access to equipment make us one of the most reliable cesspit emptying companies in Shropshire & Telford. The cost to empty a cesspit can vary with the size of the tank, with the average-sized cesspit needing to be emptied every 45 days or so. It can get costly to maintain your cesspit. We make sure we’re affordable to keep your cesspit in working order.

These sewage systems should be emptied by licensed waste disposal contractors. So, if you are looking to buy a property with a domestic septic tank or cesspit, ensure that it has been checked by a wastewater engineer prior to your purchase.

As part of a sustainable waste management service, our wastewater gets returned back into the environment. This ensures that more than 99% of our wastewater is recycled. We can ensure all liquid waste and sewage are removed safely, securely, and efficiently right after an event.

We also provide Septic Tank emptying and waste removal for both commercial and domestic clients where our tanker drivers are always happy to help. Emptying septic tanks is recommended once a year.

For residential properties that are not connected to the mains sewage pipes, septic tanks provide an onsite sewerage facility. Our experienced and fully qualified team can install full septic systems. We can also provide an ongoing maintenance and repair service, including porosity tests, pumping plants and soakaways.

Here at SPH Plant, our expert team provides cesspit and septic tank emptying services to Shropshire and surrounding areas. We are here to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! If you have any questions, please contact us on 01952 501155 or email us at info@sphplant.co.uk.

What is the difference between Cesspits & Septic Tanks? 

A Cesspit, also known as a cesspool, is a holding tank without an outlet. This outlet, which can be found on septic tanks, is for the liquid part of waste to drain away and exit the tank to what is known as a soakaway. Because of this, septic tank maintenance and emptying only need to happen once a year, whereas cesspits require emptying on a regular basis by a vacuum tanker.

Cesspits act as a temporary solution for areas without mains drainage where the discharge of treated effluent is not permissible; this could be due to unsuitable ground conditions. If you own a property with a cesspit, please ensure it is emptied on a regular basis (depends on the size) to avoid more serious problems.
