At Empire Sewer and Water NJ we get asked, what is the difference between a cesspool and septic tank, quite often.
The simple answer is that a cesspool has no outlet and all the waste water is stored inside the system and needs to be emptied by a tanker, usually once a month depending on size and usage.
With a septic tank they have an outlet pipe and therefore only store the sludge and all the waste water passes on through the system and out into a soak away. With a septic tank they are designed to be emptied annually depending on the size and usage this can be longer.
