We've known for literally decades that roughly one in four septic tanks fail.  There are complete subdivisions where half the septic tanks have failed. Considering that the vast majority of homes in Paulding are on septic, we would be a perfect place for application of the following innovation.

 

Just cruising 'round the Internet, I ran across this repurposing trick that apparently is taking hold in the EU, Australia and I guess Canada.  It involves taking the IBC totes one can buy for about $75/ea and, for under a $1000, turning a series of them into an actual sewage water treatment system from the sewer line exiting a house all the way through grey water reuse.

 

Watch the video.

 

 

 

I am curious if anyone has sought to use such as system or whether the county would even permit such a system. Seems logical, economical and much better than letting the stink rise.  If the county isn't using this 'basic science' in action, why not?

I read an article many years ago about Chinese farmers using methane to cook, heat and light their huts. They used earthenware jars and tubing to utilize the methane. I can't understand why it is not used as power plants for farms or captured from our own backyard sewage systems. We know it is bad for the ozone layer. Renewables just are not popular here. There are a lot of smart people using renewables that they have created at home. They are somewhat secretive about it. It is interesting that we pay for so much water just to flush and clean with then just allow it to perk away. Then we spend even more to water our lawns and gardens.

 

The only way we will change is in a crisis. I actually tried to talk my son into becoming an engineer so we could create cool things like this for our own use.

As far as releasing my name here, it's not going to happen.  There have been people here who found someone's given name and then found where they worked and made things difficult for them - all because they didn't like them here because of their political opinions.

Paulding County officials would shut an innovative person down, immediately. Even in Cherokee County, I have to have a high fence around the back of my property. But, they still fly over with helicopters. I guess I'm just lucky that some of my innovations have gone undetected. 

 

I never learned how to be one of the good-old-boys, and it has caused me a lot of problems. 

 

I use a smaller version of Pubby's design (in the video) on my small fish pond. It's a little different because I use plastic barrels that I get from a company that sells them cheap. My pond water stays clean, and the first barrel is the only one I have to empty now and then. 

 

If I was a younger man, I would be living off the grid, because I have never appreciated being told what to do, and how to live.

When I was young we didn't need no fancy dancy sewage systems and we liked it !  :aggressive:

It was embarrassing when you had two noisey sisters making fun of you stinking up the house, Pubby!
