Do-it-yourself economical drain pit from tires: step-by-step device technology

The times when a trip to the dacha meant living for several days in semi-primitive conditions are gradually passing away. Increasingly, summer residents acquire the benefits of civilization: a comfortable toilet, running water, bathroom, etc.

Sewerage is needed to make all of this work. Capital structures made of concrete, stone or brick are very expensive, and you need to spend a lot of time on them. Much easier - a cesspool of tires with your own hands. Old tires can be obtained at any car service station, and the technology of creating a cesspool is available even for a person without specific skills.

What are the main advantages of a tire sump?

A cesspool for collecting human waste, built by hand from old car tires, compares favorably with standard analogs, with the following characteristics:

  • simplicity of arrangement - the homeowner alone in a few days will be able to build such a sewer collector on his site;
  • the ability to use car slopes with any diameter, like from a car and from a tractor;
  • the availability and cheapness of the necessary building materials - in most auto repair shops, a homeowner can buy old tires for a penny;
  • a long service life of a cesspool up to 15 years.

Naturally, nothing is perfect - this also affected the cesspool from the car slopes. First of all, such a product is leaky and therefore can give off unpleasant aromas. Moreover, if the pit has lost its tightness, then repair it is not subject. If such problems do not bother the homeowner, then he can safely proceed to the independent arrangement of the sewage system.

Peculiarities of choosing a place for a drain pit

Very often, homeowners ignore the rules for choosing a suitable location for the construction of a cesspool. In private housing construction, there are certain norms that determine the location for the placement of collections of human waste. The drain tank for drains from car slopes for a country house should be located only in a place that meets the following standards:

  • the minimum distance from the sewer pit to residential housing construction must be at least 5 m;
  • 2 m must be retreated from the fence of the house to the drain tank;
  • an open source of water must be located at least 25 m from the cesspool from the tires;
  • in the case of daily wastewater formation in a volume of more than 1 cubic meter, the drain tank from the tires must be equipped with a bottom, in in other situations, this requirement is optional.

To connect the sewerage wiring to the main housing construction, it is necessary to use only modern plastic pipes 10 cm thick. The laying of sewer pipes from the house to the cesspool should be carried out strictly in a straight line with a slope towards the waste drain. If it is impossible to lay pipes below the freezing point of the soil in the winter period of the year, their high-quality thermal insulation from moisture-repellent materials is performed.
