On property sewer dump

Well I just got done doing a bit of stone work to keep the weed and stuff away from my sewer clean up so I could use it to dump the RV.

So here is my handy work on a freezing cold day...


All made out of red brick and I cut them using a masonry blade in my circular saw. Laid black plastic under the brick and used a bit of sand to level out the brick placement.

But now I can back in and dump my tanks after a outing and can do it in the comforts of home... I'm not a RV nut am I????

Well, you and I are what car people affectionally refer to as "gearheads" so with this handiwork (which looks very good) I would say you are definately an RVhead (or an RV nut) as well. I know I am, just not as industrious as you are.

nice work. Wish I had a sewer clean out conveniently located? Anyone experimented with putting down a 55 gallon drum or anything like that in your back yard to dump your tanks if necessary? I live out in the country so don't think it would be too much of a problem.

Ahhh... Better idea dig your pit... The line the pit with cinder blocks. Now when you lay your cinder blocks put a few with the holes facing the dirt and a few with the holes up and down. Now keep stacking the block but tapper inward like a cone slightly with each row. The all you need to do is add a top of some sort.

This exact design was used as our drain field for over 50 years till we updated the system in the yard. Our was dug down over 28 feet ot the bottom and about 10 foot in diameter. The bottom was lined with sand.

But for using a 55 gallon drum you could but it would have to be plastic. Steel will eventually rot out and fail.

It was a compliment, and I understand you are into Cummins Diesels, but you obviously know Mopars pretty well. Anyway great work on the sewer dump.

A 55 gal drum and a yard of river rock works great.

I actually put in a small (150 gallon) septic take and 30 feet of leech line using airators (spelling?). Works great and is to California code. Cost me about $800 total, parts and labor.
