Principle of operation septic tank
Not only owners of country houses, but also summer residents try to install a septic tank in their area. But what is it, and how does it work? It is important to know what you are buying and how you will use it. A person needs to understand the structure of the treatment plant in order to understand the benefits that can be derived from it.
Internal device septic tank "Tank"
Septic tank "Tank" is a system of blocks and modules. Outwardly it looks like a large radiator. In principle, so it is. The septic tank consists of separate sections, which are connected internally by branch pipes - overflows. In the factory conditions, the body is cast, the walls of which are a lot of ribbed surface of increased strength. Thanks to this form, the safety factor of a septic tank is increased to 50 years. For half a century, the tank "Tank" continues to work as a new one.
The "Tank" tank is relatively cheap, but works reliably. Most importantly, does not require constant human intervention. It is necessary to pump out a septic tank every five years, while a cesspool is filled as it is filled!
Perhaps the most important feature of the septic tank "Tank" is the possibility of autonomous operation. Electricity is often cut off, especially in suburban areas where there are no strategically important facilities: schools, hospitals, banks. Electric power is turned off, and the tank tank "Tank" continues its normal operation. There is electricity - the septic tank works, as if nothing happened. It should be noted that not all septic tanks are capable of withstanding such loads, especially if power outages are regular.
Preparing a foundation pit for a septic tank
To install a septic tank, "Tank" does not need any wisdom. The septic can be installed in any place where it is easier to dig the ground. To install the unit, there is no need for concreting the pit bottom and cementing its walls. It is possible to install on its own. It is necessary to dig a foundation ditch for the sizes of a septic tank, with a margin of 25-30 cm. The bottom of the excavation should be laid with sand. It is important to maintain an ideally horizontal surface so that the water inside the septic tank does not stagnate, which in winter will wash out. The correct installation of the tank "Tank" guarantees its operation at low temperatures. To fill the distances between the septic tank and the walls of the pit, an ordinary mortar of cement and sand is used. After pouring 20 cm, it is necessary to ram the layer manually.
To achieve the best result, it is necessary to fill the septic tank with water so that the water level is 20 cm above the backfill line. The septic tank for the dacha will smoothly settle, helping to compact the backfill. All these manipulations can be done by the owner alone without attracting workers.
After fixing the septic tank inside the foundation pit, it is sheltered by a thick layer of sand and gravel mixture. This is done for the purpose of thermal insulation. Outside the ventilation pipes, through which the gases that are formed as a result of disposal of sewage waste, leave.
Polypropylene pipes lead from the house to the septic tank, the length of which should be at least 6 meters, as required by SanPin.
The sections of which the septic tank consists consists of three chambers. Thanks to this design, the bottom of the unit does not silt. Therefore, the tank "Tank" works much longer than its counterparts having a different structure.
The main reason for installing any septic tank is its practical use. How much is it able to purify the sewage? Septic tank "Tank" copes with this task by 98% - this is a very high figure. The water that has been cleaned in the septic tank is quite suitable for watering technical needs. Wash floors or a car with disinfected water, without using a water pipe - what could be more useful?
