English translation:washings settling tank and cesspool (cess pit)
Explanation:
Zbiornik bezodpływowy służy do gromadzenia ścieków z domu jednorodzinnego. Z takiego zbiornika ścieki wywożone są taborem asenizacyjnym do punktów zlewnych. Gdy brak kanalizacji, ścieki z poszczególnych posesji są odprowadzane do tzw szamb.

Cesspools (sometimes called Cesspits) are simply holding tanks for the waste water. They need to be emptied regularly, perhaps every month. Typically they were never designed for, and cannot cope with modern life which demands washing machines, dishwashers, and daily baths / showers. It is not unusual to find cesspools which leak - this may be due to age, or deliberate damage inflicted in order to reduce frequency (and cost) of emptying. A leaking cesspool which comes to the notice of the local authorities or Environment Agency will be subject to an order to be repaired or replaced.
