Poo Pit™ Maintenance Shaft

The Poo Pit™: The Last Access Chamber You’ll Install

The Poo Pit™ has been around for more than 23 years and originated out of Australia with over 200,000 installs worldwide now. The Poo Pit™ is a 600mm diameter rotomolded structure. The Poo Pit is a completely airtight modern way to access point to your sewers for all cleaning, flushing, camera inspection and plugging. Everything can be performed safely from the surface while eliminating dangerous confined space entry. Manufactured out of durable polyethylene was critical in its longevity and no maintenance. Being IMPACT resistant, UV resistant and CORROSION resistant were key factors in choice of material. Every Poo Pit™ is air tested before it leaves the factory to ensure it is 100% watertight throughout its 100+ year working life cycle.

The Poo Pit™ is a direct alternative to concrete manhole and each unit is custom made to support up to 4 inlets at any grade and angle anywhere on the body, as well as drop connections.

The Poo Pit™ also doubles as an internal or external drop connection as sewers from higher elevations can simply drop into the riser shaft and drop into the Poo Pit™ without the fear of it falling on someone or eroding the benching.
