Septic tanks for a country house

To date, it is difficult for us to imagine a country house or cottage without such amenities as a kitchen, toilet or bathroom. In order to use them, you should think about how to remove products of our life. To solve this issue, a septic tank is used.

The simplest septic tank is installed as a tank. It can be used in the case of a high level of groundwater and when there is no way to build embankments for the filtration field. Such a cumulative septic tank should be durable, with thick walls and strict ribs, otherwise it can be damaged by the pressure of the soil.

The second factor that should be taken into account when choosing a storage septic tank is its volume. First, calculate how much water you will use and the time for which the container will fill. If the volume of the container is insufficient, you will have to use the services of the Assoing machine very often, and this is extra costs.

It is also important to choose the optimal place where the accumulative septic tank will be located. The entrance to him is difficult to be unhindered. Distance from the nearest well — at least 30-35 meters.

The accumulative septic tank for the home, even given its simplicity in the installation and the relatively low cost, is a thing of the past. More popular are filtration systems. They are divided into two types: a septic tank with a built -in factory biofilter and with soil filtration. The second type is the most common. Waswater filtration is carried out through bacteria that are in the soil.

How does he work? Wastewater falls into it, which amenable to fermentation. Then the formation of soluble substances and gases occurs (for their conclusion, a ventilation system is provided). After several days, insoluble and heavy particles settle in the form of silt to the bottom of the septic tank — it must be periodically cleaned.

Before the cold occurs, the septic tank should be insulated — in order to prevent hypothermia and violations of the temperature regime, in which bacteria can multiply and perform their functions. Also remember that the silt on the bottom of the septic tank does not need to be completely removed — otherwise anaerobic microorganisms will die.

An equally important factor is the material from which local sewage is manufactured. For example, a concrete septic tank perfectly withstands any weather conditions, loads and is not subjected to corrosion. Among the shortcomings is a large weight and the presence of only one camera. The metal septic tank is less practical — because over time it lends itself to corrosion, and when installing such a septic tank, a lifting tap is needed. The polymer septic tank has a low weight, low cost, is not subject to corrosion, but may not withstand strong pressure of the soil and groundwater.
