Septic Tank Installation & Replacement

A septic tank is a crucial component of a wastewater treatment system, typically installed underground to collect and treat sewage from households or commercial properties that are not connected to a centralised system. Septic tank installation begins with a thorough assessment of the site, including soil type, water table level, and property layout. Excavation follows, creating a suitable space for the tank placement. The tank is carefully positioned, levelled, and connected to the property's plumbing system, before proper backfilling and compaction takes place to ensure stability and functionality. As both a drainage company and groundworks specialist, we’re capable of performing all aspects of septic tank installation to the most meticulous of standards.

Over time, septic tanks may require replacement due to various factors such as age, damage, or inadequate maintenance. Signs indicating the need for replacement include foul odours, sewage backups, and groundwater contamination. Our expert technicians conduct thorough inspections to determine the most appropriate replacement solution tailored to the property's needs and environmental regulations. Clients around Cranleigh, Horsham, Midhurst, Petworth and Pulborough choosing CJ Groundworks for a septic tank installation will benefit from a two-year guarantee, in addition to all relevant manufacturer warranties.

Cesspit Replacement & Repair

A cesspit, also known as a cesspool, is a sealed underground chamber designed to collect and temporarily store sewage and wastewater from a property. Over time, cesspits can deteriorate due to age, structural damage, or inadequate maintenance, necessitating replacement or repair. Installation or cesspit replacement involves excavation of the site, placement of the chamber, and connection to the property's plumbing system. Our experienced team ensures proper sizing and positioning to accommodate the property's needs while adhering to local regulations present in our areas of coverage, which include Cranleigh, Horsham, Midhurst, Petworth and Pulborough.

Throughout its lifespan, a cesspit may require various repairs to maintain functionality.
