Poudre-closet - This kind of arrangement of the toilet room wasIt circulated in the Soviet past, and was used in shallow groundwater (less than 2.5 meters). Poudre-closet can be fitted in the toilet room or dwelling in a separate house. To collect waste used in such lavatory metal or plastic container.

  • Liquid toilet to give mobile enougheasy to use, they can be transported in a car. Advantageously, this type of composting toilets installed in the house. They consist of two parts: the upper, with a tank for flushing, seat and pomp, and the bottom, which is a reservoir for waste collection. The tank is filled a special composition, which breaks down the waste and partly neutralize odor.
    Disadvantages of liquid composting toilets: they require large amounts of water and, because of the small tonnage, frequent emptying. Moreover, the liquid waste is to neutralize toxic and itself has an unpleasant odor.
  • Electric toilets appeared to testifyrecently. They are stationary and require connection to the mains, so they equip the premises of the residential villas. The appearance of the toilet like a normal toilet. The difference lies only in the structure beneath the floor - there is a tank divided into two parts. In one collected liquid waste, which is then displayed via the drainage system in the sump or in the ground. In another part of the tank is collected and dried solid excrement and toilet paper. When emptying of the toilet, the dried contents can be added to a compost pit.
    Disadvantages of electric dry closet:it requires a specially equipped room (when its construction is necessary to provide a place for waste collectors, drainage systems and accessories collections for cleaning). It should also be equipped with special exhaust ventilation.
  • Peat biotoilets (also called Finnish orcompost) are also new for our market. Positioning they need to be in a specially equipped room in a residential area or in a separate house. Their work consists in the fact that after the use of excrement backfilled portion milled peat. Peat absorbs liquid waste fraction, which significantly increases the evaporation of the liquid through the ventilation system. In the peat mass is actively going kompostizatsiya solid waste. Due to the large volume of the collection, a toilet for the villas do not need to be emptied often. Its contents can be poured into a compost pit.

After solidification set formwork for walls and pour them with concrete. After removal of the formwork defects in concrete close up cement-sand mortar.

Top cesspool necessarily covered. The overlap can be made by putting a log on top of the pit, the top cover with roofing material or polyethylene and concreted or sprinkle soil, slag or gravel. Be sure Equips hatch, through which sewage will be pumped out, and leave a hole for the vent pipe.
