Drainage 2 - Storage Tanks

Klargester Holding Tanks: Introduction

A Klargester Cesspool provides a reliable solution for locations without mains drainage, where the discharge of treated effluent is not permissible due to unsuitable ground conditions, or where infrequent or seasonal use, such as a holiday home, would prevent the successful functioning of a BioDisc/AirFlow packaged treatment plant, for example.


Features & Benefits

  • Quality and reliability at a competitive price
    Klargester Cesspools have been successfully installed throughout the world since 1967. They are constructed from non-corrosive materials, designs in accordance with BS 6297: 1983.

  • Factory tested
    Every Cesspool is tested to ensure that it is watertight and structurally sound.

  • Easy to install and maintain
    Delivered as a complete unit ready for installation, each Cesspool must be installed in a level condition and bedded on, and surrounded with, 225mm thickness of concrete. The Cesspool will need to be ballasted internally with water and remain so until the concrete has set. Full installation instructions are provided with each unit, but are also available on request. Cesspools are for storage only and their contents have to be emptied at regular intervals by tanker. A 'high level' alarm is available for monitoring the Cesspool for optimum usage.

  • Lockable manhole cover
    For added safety, Cesspools can be supplied with a lockable manhole cover.

  • Capacity
    For a single dwelling 18180 litres (4000 gallons) is the minimum allowable capacity. This size should be increased by 6800 litres (6.8m) for each additional user.
