septic tanks advice needed
Ours has a heavy concrete slab on top. Not air tight, but vermin cannot access it. there is no smell from the tank and only occasionally in the house (when an unused air trap has dries out. Top uo with water and problkem goes away. We clean the loos with regular toilet cleaner, a small amount will not damage the culture in the tank.

We have a 'if it's brown, flush it down, if it's yellow let it mellow' philosophy to help reduce water waste. ( We also catch the waster water which runs until hot water comes through for washing dishes). This clean water is used on the garden.

Love the motto, I'll translate it into Russia and put a plaque in the bathroom!

But a wealth of info coming in from all directions, I had no idea there were so any septic tank users out there.
