Keen, as I am on the latest and greatest technological advances, when I recently needed to upgrade my ageing septic tank I did a little research and came across an alternative.
Traditional domestic waste management systems in France generally require a filtration bed. This is typically a series of perforated pipes buried in a specific type of sand. The liquor that is treated by the anaerobic septic tank is then filtered through the sand. These systems are expensive and hugely disruptive to install due, in part, to the quantity of spoil that must be excavated.
An alternative aerobic type of system exists where the sand filtration bed is not typically necessary, resulting in significantly less disruption to you garden and a swifter installation. We did ours in just a few hours.
Take a look and the video and if you have any questions, ask them in the comments below and Andrew or myself can respond. Myself from a homeowners perspective and Andrew can handle the more technical questions or you can contact him directly, details below.
