Septic tanks below sea level
asked 16 July 2018 asked by Rickyrt (240 points)
A few solutions/options. 1. Build your tank on higher ground. 2. have 2 tanks built. Closed systems. when one is full switch to tank B. Ad microbes to reduce all waste into nutrient form. no smell, no pathogen. a timer sprinkler on the tanks would empty quickly for reuse. (you may want a cistern to handle emergency water supply during a draught).3. Plant a very large garden between your tank and the coast.
Hi many thanks for your reply, I am not sure I understood having two tanks? Is the second tank to hold the water leaving the septic tank to add the microbes to? so the water can be pumped out & used for the garen?
