In the next step, we placed sand on the bottom of the prepared trench and leveled it to the required slope. We cut a hole in the concrete tank for the pipe inlet and installed an inspection shaft near the building. Subsequently, we placed the main sewer pipe in the trench and covered it with sand and earth. First connection complete…
It is required to place something permanent in the beautifully excavated pit, which will move the pit to higher dimensions, open new possibilities, until now only in dreams imagined, please the builder's eye and fill a person suddenly surprised by different needs with hope. And so the day came when the prefabricated tanks, after a long wait, triumphantly arrived from the manufacturer and, after sudden and tedious preparatory work, rested on the bottom of a space carefully prepared for them, as when a mother makes a cradle for her child.
Since sewage must be diverted or captured somewhere, the time has come to build a cesspool. We have opted for this solution for two reasons. Firstly, there is no public sewer system available in the village yet. Secondly, it is always safer to capture sewage from the factory where sanitation solutions are used in a cesspool, so that the pH value can be checked before being taken out and, if necessary, neutralized. The first step in the construction of the cesspool was the excavation of a pit into which the prefabricated cesspool will be placed.
Along with all the construction work being carried out during the reconstruction of the building, a fairly good volume of construction debris has accumulated. We sorted this debris and placed it to the part of the cellar, which must be filled up. Before that, we have concreted the windows in the cellar. At the top of the debris, we placed a layer of crushed stone, which will be later compacted, and a base plate will be constructed above it.
In order to excavate trench for the main sewer pipe which connects the building with the cesspool we had to call for a serious mechanism. The pipe comes out of the building at a depth of 1.4 m and further down towards the cesspool to a depth of 1.6 m. A long time ago some other buildings used to stay on the part of the land which the pipeline passes through. These buildings were removed over time but solid stone foundations were left in the ground.
