Case Study: Cesspit Removal at Berkley House


A client at Berkley Homes contacted Hydro Cleansing to remove the cess from the holding tank on one of their properties. The cess waste was returned to Hydro Cleansings Wet Waste Recycling Facility where we ensured that 100% was turned into reusable materials.

The waste collected in the Cesspit, or the Holding Tank needs to be pumped or removed on a periodic basis. This is because as the solid materials that don't get discharged through the drainage field continue to build up, the tank will start to overflow. As a result, sewage and wastewater will start to back up into the property, resulting in an environmental emergency. Hydro Cleansing has ensured that proper maintenance has been carried out and the community is protected.
