Septic tanks are ecological products used as an alternative to the centralized sewerage system, or as the only viable solution if a centralized sewerage network is missing. The tank will be buried in the ground and will allow pedestrian movement over it.
If the tank is to be installed in a place over which vehicles must also circulate, a concrete manhole will be built, covered with a road cap, which allows periodic inspection of the septic tank. Also, the tank must be installed so that it can be accessed with a special truck used for emptying it. It is recommended to install it at a distance of at least 10 meters from any source of drinking water and at a distance of 1 meter from the foundation of the house. The soil should have an increased or at least medium factor of water permeability (preferably brown, sandy soil).
