More recently, country houses were firmly associated with a small uncomfortable structure and an almost complete lack of communications. Today, dachas in the Moscow region, for the most part, are modern buildings that are equipped with autonomous systems for water supply and wastewater treatment. As a rule, septic tanks are used to accumulate and purify wastewater. Concrete rings are considered one of the most popular materials for the construction of septic tanks. When equipping your own summer cottage, it is important to immediately figure out what concrete rings are, and how to choose them correctly.
In fairness, it is worth noting that today not only concrete rings are used for the construction of septic tanks, but also plastic, polymer sand and fiberglass. But it is concrete that are in the highest demand due to their distinctive performance properties. They are heavy enough to prevent groundwater from pushing out the septic tank, are resistant to drains, have a circular shape and different diameters. For the production of concrete rings, a metal frame is used, filled with concrete mortar, as a result, a product comes out that can withstand huge loads, which is important when arranging a septic tank. To all this, it is worth adding a relatively low price and speed of installation, however, it is almost impossible to do without special equipment.
Concrete ring size
Reinforced concrete factories produce concrete rings, mainly for the construction of tunnels for communication facilities, wells, but due to the properties described above, these products are excellent for arranging septic tanks. On sale you can find rings with different diameters, and it is precisely the choice of this indicator that must be taken with the utmost care.
Typical heights of concrete rings are 90 and 100 cm, wall thickness ranges from 6.5 to 11.5 cm.The diameter can be as follows:
- 70 cm;
- 80 cm;
- 100 cm;
- 120 cm;
- 150 cm;
- 200 cm;
- on request, many manufacturers of concrete rings can create a product with a different required diameter.
Usually, rings with a diameter of 1 m are used, and this choice is dictated by a lot of arguments. Thanks to such rings, you can create a capacious septic tank that meets all the requirements, the contents of which will not dry out in the summer, which is quite possible when larger diameter rings are chosen. The consequence may be the formation of a natural colmatant at the bottom and walls of the septic tank, a solid enough substance that is not so easy to remove. In order to get rid of it, you will have to use a crowbar or a jackhammer, because if you do not take any action, the capacity of the septic tank will gradually decrease.
In each individual case, it is necessary to calculate the capacity of the septic tank, analyze the amount of wastewater, the frequency of their formation, etc.
Experts do not recommend using more than 4-5 rings for the construction of a septic tank in order to maintain the tightness of the structure. If you need to build a more capacious septic tank, then it is better to choose rings with a slightly larger diameter.
A logical question arises about how much a septic tank should be. So, it is believed that it should hold a three-day amount of wastewater. At the same time, one person discharges an average of 200 liters of wastewater per day. So it turns out that if a family of four stays at the dacha, then the volume of the septic tank should be at least 4 * 200 * 3 = 2400 liters.
When choosing concrete rings, it is important to pay attention to whether they are equipped with special hinges for ease of installation with their equipment. In addition, the rings can also have locks that connect two adjacent parts, and allow you to obtain the most sealed design that does not harm the environment. But you will have to pay extra for such a bonus, because rings equipped with locks are slightly more expensive.
For the bottom of the septic tank, it is better to purchase a ring with a bottom to simplify your waterproofing work. When arranging the septic tank itself, it is difficult to manage on your own, although there is an option that provides for the gradual undermining of the earth under the ring and immersion of the rings one by one into the pit, but this is difficult and time-consuming. It is much faster to attract special equipment, but before that you will need to dig a well, think over the approach of equipment to the site, and during the installation process, carefully monitor that the rings are not damaged.
You can make your task easier if you use the services of professionals who will carry out all the turnkey work as soon as possible. Experts will help determine the best location for a septic tank, taking into account many factors, prepare a place for a septic tank, deliver concrete rings and carry out their correct installation and waterproofing of the entire structure, and then connect the sewage system. All work on calculation and installation is carried out promptly and efficiently, which is confirmed by numerous customer reviews.
