1.17 mole model represents a single chamber structure, which is mainly used as a drive. The volume of the device is 1170 liters, which is enough to serve the small summer garden. But the owners of large houses purchase of this device can be very interesting.
Several such containers connected in series, can be converted into a two- or three-chambered septic significant amount.
The relatively low price of the device and easy installation, and the ability to complete additional device options to Depending on the customer turn Mole 1.17 in a decent alternative to septic tank of concrete rings or expensive models VOC.
If you need a large three-chamber septic tank with horizontal chambers, order the production of such a device can be factory-based model of septic tank "Mole 1.17"
Given the lack of other cameras, this septic tank works mainly as a storage tank in which the waste water is naturally recycled. Clarified and refined as a result of sedimentation of water diverted to filtration boxWhere undergo additional purification by gravel-sand filter.
If you buy two or three horizontal septic tank "Mole 1.17", one of them a large wastewater treatment plant can be done by placing each unit in a separate pit
About once a year the unit should be cleaned with the help of the drainage machine. In case this is not possible, to pump a septic tank contents can be independently in any suitable volume capacity to dispose of the waste later.
Inlet and outlet nipples are provided with a septic tank, which allow to dock with sewage communications device.
The horizontal model of septic tanks "Mole" relatively low, so you will need to install them is not such a deep pit for the vertical model
The standard septic neck has a diameter of 50 cm and a height of 44 cm, but if desired, these parameters may be changed. Apart from the main tank lid is provided with additional cover made of polyethylene foam.
The presence of this useful element eliminates the need to further insulate the device in winter. place connection a sewer pipe to a septic tank is made so that when clogged it was not difficult to clean.
Vertical model septic "Mole", as well as horizontal, is supplied with two lids, to ensure reliable protection of the device from winter frosts
1.8 Mole Model consists of two chambers, although it may be delivered in single chamber design. The housing is formed as a product of the cylinder working chambers are located vertically.
Product height is 225 cm, while the first chamber of which there are 150 cm. The diameter of the housing may be 136 or 186 cm. This model weighs only 105 kg, the volume of the device is 1800 liters.
3.6 Mole Model 3600 l capacity available as three, and with two chambers which are also disposed vertically relative to each other. product housing has an ellipsoidal shape.
The height of the container is the same as the model 1.8 - 150 cm for the first chamber and 225 cm overall. The width and length is 190 × 240 cm, product weight - 170 kg. Neck height is 75 cm and its diameter - 90 cm, but if desired, these dimensions can be changed.
This diagram clearly shows a device model septic vertical "mole" with different embodiments of the sewer pipe inlet arrangement (+)
An interesting option of the two models - this is an opportunity to withdraw the so-called "gray" waste water is not in the first and once in the second chamber septic tank. "Gray" is called waste water from the washing machine and / or dishwasher. They have a low degree of contamination and does not require long-term standing.
To move such waste water into the second chamber septic tank installed extension tube 50 mm in diameter with a corresponding adapter for connection to a sewer pipe flow.
Similar to the 1.17 mole, the two devices have an additional cover made of polyethylene foam. Inside the septic tank between the first and second cam mounted biofilters improving cleaning quality. If necessary packaging device can be supplemented by manual return valve which protects the device from sinking groundwater.
Septic Tank "Mole" can be changed to make them more suitable for the specific conditions. For example, if the buyer can not determine in advance the depth of connection with sewer pipes, can be put in place neck 160-mm pipe with a socket-adapter.
To this adapter attached standard sewer pipe, via which the connection is performed.
All models are made with device protection surfacing in areas with normal levels of groundwater. Where shallow water lie, it is recommended to use additional fastening, protecting the building from the ascent. This element is fastened directly to the septic tank body and does not require connection to a concrete slab.
This scheme makes it possible to study the principle of operation of the device and the horizontal septic "Mole", as well as features of the installation of additional elements for this model (+)
If there is a risk of overflow of the septic tank for pumping water or drainage, you can use fecal pump. In this case it is necessary to book an extra option - a special shelf or pump container. Further, the septic tank is installed on the neck of output diameter of 50 mm.
The device and principle of operation
If we talk about the principle of operation of a septic tank "Mole" simplistically, it can be considered an advanced septic tank. Effluent coming into the apparatus of the sewer pipe, accumulated and processed slowly under the influence anaerobes.
Scheme horizontal septic model "Mole". Location apparatus neck can be changed depending on the situation or the customer's wishes (+)
As the processing contents of the septic tank is decomposed into partially purified water yl neutral and biologically degradable waste.
as required Water discharged through a drain pipe absorbing well or filtration field, and other content is removed using a cesspool emptier. If the volume of the septic tank is designed correctly, the call scavengers and once a year it will be possible to carry out the cleaning procedure.
If it is a two- or three-chamber septic tank, the section in such a device are separated by a sealed wall, however different parts of the contents are not mixed.
Moving the waste water from one chamber to another through special overflow. As already mentioned, a part of sewage - gray waste water - can be directly fed to a second chamber of the septic tank.
Purification through septic produce audit hatches. To improve the purification in the second chamber is set biofilters. These elements look like the brush of cylindrical shape. Gradually, their bristles accumulate solid particles of waste, so the filters must be cleaned periodically.
Biofilters septic "Mole" are in the form of a circular brush, they are not difficult to remove for cleaning. Manual valve device can switch the operation for removal of the purified water by pump
Biofilters installed in the septic tank so that they are easy to get and then reinstalled. So cleaning the filter is reduced to a series of simple steps: brush must be removed from the septic tank, gently shake off the dirt back into the container and place the cleaned filter.
This simple operating principle and simple design of the septic tank "Mole" can achieve modest results. The degree of wastewater treatment here reaches only 60%, which is considerably lower than the more technological VOCs, which show almost 98% cleaning.
And yet it is significantly higher than the quality of waste water treatment in a conventional sump overflow. If there is a desire to increase the quality of recycling, can be supplemented with a septic tank "Mole" compressor.
This will allow aeration of wastewater in the septic tank and the effective use of aerobic bacteria along with anaerobic microorganisms for wastewater treatment. Manufacturer completes a septic tank with such a device and provides design space for their installation.
Another interesting addition to the septic tank "Mole" - the so-called composting unit or K-module. It is installed in the first chamber of the vertical patterns and the septic tank serves to collect the insoluble portion, drains, which can then be composted, i.e. used as a fertilizer.
The contents of the K-module is periodically necessary to seize and bury in the ground where the waste will be processed in a natural way. K-module is produced in the form of two separate sections 29 and 50 l or as one large capacity of 150 liters. In the first case to the module must be removed and washed by hand with a hose.
More to the module to get out of the septic tank for cleaning is not necessary. Its contents are pumped by a pump in the washing is not necessary. If the septic tank uses a family of three or four people, clean the K-module is necessary about once every three months.
Defend in the septic tank effluent can not simply be dropped onto a relief. They need to go through a system of ground post-treatment in the absorption pit or leach field (+)
Advantages and disadvantages to compare
Speaking about the merits and demerits of septic tanks "Mole", first of all shoppers say it very low price for this type of device.
If we compare the "Mole" with more expensive autonomous treatment plantsIt is worth mentioning another important fact - the device is non-volatile, ie, for his work does not need to be connected to a septic tank electricity. Of course, except for those cases where the set is complemented by a compressor.
Almost all septic tanks in which aerobic bacteria are used and required for their normal vital functions of aeration should be permanently connected to the power supply. In places where power outages are frequent, this can cause a number of problems.
If the area is set to "Mole", this can be simply not to worry. Manufacturer willingly supplies the device with additional options that allow you to adjust the septic tank to the specific operating conditions.
It has already been mentioned the possibility of installing a check valve, a drain pump for the forced retraction of purified water, shelves for installation of the device, another inlet into the second chamber for gray wastewater protection ascent and etc.
This table gives an idea of the cost of the various models of septic tank "Mole" and the possibility of bundling additional options
If a decision is yet to install a septic tank, it makes sense to consider these points and to discuss the option of optional equipment supplier. The price of the product as a result, of course, will grow, but with similar septic continues to compete in this area is very confident.
The following fact, speaking in favor of the "Mole" - easy installation. Only pit, no concrete or other "wet" work should not be carried out, and even the concrete slab at the bottom to fix the septic tank, too, is not required. Although it should be remembered that the pit for the vertical model will need a fairly deep, horizontal septic tank to install even easier.
Durability - one more "plus". Both the material and the weld beads, which are connected by design, and ribs - all this is done at a high quality level. capacity service life estimated in the range of 40-50 years, which is very decent for such an inexpensive device.
Septic tanks brands Mole suited for winter installation and operation. To do this, it is important to insulate the parts of the system exposed to freezing
winter operating system components should bury below the freezing level. If infiltrators are not installed in the pit, they should be insulated acceptable method

Septic Tank "Mole" is often described as not pop. What does it mean? The device design conceived in such a way that after installation and effectively resist soil pressure, and exposed to the groundwater even at appreciable increase their level proleganiya.
In areas where this indicator consistently high, it is strongly recommended to use special protective attachment on the ascent. The word "fixing" in the title of this element is associated with a process of joining device body to the concrete slab on the bottom of the pit.
In fact, the weighting element is designed to be installed directly on the printer. body weight increases, and prevents bubbling septic tank. According to reviews, the solution found by the manufacturer, was quite efficient, despite the fact that the device is not connected to any static objects.
Maintenance of the septic tank is simplified as much as possible. The design provides access to the inlet and outlet nozzles to be able to clean them fast in the case of clogging.
The process of cleaning biofilters are already described above and is also extremely simple. If the cleaning efficiency decreased, biofilters can be simply rinsed in clean water, to remedy the situation. Annual removal of silt big problems does not deliver.
This scheme allows you to get an idea about the features of the installation of a septic tank "Mole" in areas with elevated groundwater proleganiya (+)
At the same time rely on a high degree of wastewater treatment to the buyer is not necessary. Even when installing the compressor there is no guarantee of a good result. Therefore, the contents of the septic tank after processing can not be used directly as a fertilizer.
It is recommended to remove or stow in compost heaps for further processing. Water obtained from the settling and recycling waste, and will not be clean enough for irrigation or meet the technical needs of the area.
In addition, the design does not provide a separate drive for the purified water, so when you install a septic tank "Mole" necessarily creates absorption well or filtration field for purification and removal of water in priming.
Features installation of septic tanks
Installation of a septic tank "Mole" in comparison with the more expensive counterparts looks pretty simple. The dimensions of the device are small, so choose the right place will not be difficult. Then you need to mark up the pit and dig it. The length, width and depth of the well must exceed the corresponding parameters capacity of about 20 cm.
After the trench is ready, its bottom is aligned and laid on top of sand bed of 15-20 cm thick. Now inside can gently lower the septic tank and connected pipes from home to it and from it to the filtering field.
For installation of a septic tank with Mole aftertreatment system as well develop absorbent pit two connected pipe trench
The bottom of the pit, a septic tank intended to be mounted aligned and embedded in a layer of concrete 10 cm, the bottom of the second pit is filled with gravel
The pit filled with concrete after 14 days, set septic tank. It connects the sewer pipe and the vent pipe
The capacity of the pumped water, so it does not warp when dumping. The space between the septic tank and the pit walls is filled with sand and cement mixture
Absorbing well constructed of concrete rings. Install them on the gravel bottom is connected at its end and a solution of metal straps
In the rings of erected well set concrete slab with an opening, which is attached to the neck ring with a hatch
The trench is filled. Sewer system with an absorbing wells as groundwater aftertreatment system satisfied if between conventional bottom pit and a mirror ground water will land formation capacity of at least 1 m. plot similar variant takes a minimum of seats
If the area the water table is relatively high, erect or install the filter box ready infiltrators. Between the bottom of the conventional system and the ground water as well should not be less than a meter
Step 1: Development of pits for sewerage
Step 2: Prepare the bottom of developing
Step 3: ustanokoy septic tank on a concrete floor
Step 4: Fill the pit with septic Mole
Step 5: Construction of an absorbing well
Step 6: Setting the overlap well with the hatch
Step 7: the well system in the area
Step 8: Infiltrators for additional cleaning dirt
On small plots of field facilities for additional cleaning dirt often impossible. In such situations, should be separately to make another device - drain well, he's absorption or filtering.
At the bottom of this structure put sand, then gravel and / or gravel. The combined capacity of filling at least 1 m. This is a filter for purification of water withdrawn from the septic tank.
From the house to the septic tank and septic tank to the drain of the well conducted trench laying sewer pipes. If you use a separate outlet for removing the gray waste water, can be done for him another trench. Pipes is recommended to warm to prevent freezing in winter.
Communications should have a small slope, so that the liquid is moved over them by gravity. Size deviation is 2 - 3 cm, relating to each meter.
Sewage and drainage pipe connected to the respective branch pipes septic tank. Installation of additional elements, e.g., the drain pump can be performed before installing the septic tank into the pit, and after it.
After the septic tank is installed in the pit, the space between the walls of the device and the soil covered with sand. First, a septic tank must be filled with water
Now you need to perform a dusting device with sand. Add to sand cement and other binders do not need. First container is filled with water to compensate for external pressure. Then fill the sand space around the body. After dumping closure is removed from the water tank, septic tank lid is closed and check its operation.
The space around the lid covered with soil. If desired, you can decorate the cover, in order to improve the state of the landscape in the area. But it should be remembered that the inner contents of the septic tank needed free access for regular maintenance of the device and the necessary repairs.
For small areas, instead of filtering the field arrange filtering wells. It should be remembered that all the dirt aftertreatment system can be arranged only in the case of the predominance of sandy soils on the site. The second condition between conventional systems and the bottom ground water table should be at least 1 m
