A Cesspool is simply a single-chamber storage tank with no outlet.

The tank is usually very large (as it has to contain all waste water & sewage) and often made from concrete, brick or GRP. The only way to dispose of the waste is by hiring a licensed sewage contractor to remove the sewage for off-site disposal.

The use of Cesspools is no longer an option in most instances and are banned in Scotland.
