Often acquiring a cottage, a person intends to equip all the necessary conditions for relaxation. However, do not forget that on vacation you need to take care of the disposal of human life waste. That is why any country house should include autonomous sewage.
Many local cleaning structures helps to solve this problem. Such units are called septic tanks. With them, you can achieve a high degree of wastewater treatment. At the same time, the costs of the operation of such systems are usually minimal.
The principles of the functioning of the septic tanks
There are a number of factors affecting the choice of a particular septic tank. Such factors are:
the degree of proximity of the fit of groundwater to the surface of the earth;
Features of the terrain.
The mechanism of action of the septic tank implies the presence of a sump that is built from waterproof material – special fiberglass.
Wastewater gathered in this container are cleaned during the defending. The purification process is accompanied by anaerobic decomposition of biological material, which may be present in wastewater. In addition, in the container there is a fermentation process, accompanied by the release of gas. The latter just causes flotation cleaning of wastewater while the liquid gathered in the container is mixed with gas bubbles.
There are single -chamber or multi -chamber septic tanks. Which of them is suitable for one or another area can be determined by the volume of wastewater. There is another feature that must be remembered when the sewage system is equipped for a summer residence. Septic tank should be located at a distance of 7 meters from the house. In this case, the volume of this unit should be a large amount of daily flow of wastewater three times.
After cleansing in this mechanism, wastewater through the pipes enter the filter fields. A drainage well and a drainage field are created to achieve a common task – to provide the opportunity to go into the ground with purified sewage waters.
Autonomous sewage system equipped in a country house, in addition to the presence of a septic tank, should also have a drainage field. At the initial stage of the construction of the drainage field, you need to decide on the type of soil on the site. Next, you need to bury pipes with special holes for the filter material (for example, sand). They will be further cleaned of wastewater using microorganisms.
