THE SUCKER PITS AND ITS
The sucker way of a is where the toilet is connected to with a PVC pipe in order to direct all the human feces coming from the toilet flusher. The modern sucker way or are built with a section for collecting water coming from the bathroom, kitchen washing pan, and any other waste water. plays a very crucial role in a such that no modern in a city is habitable without it. Imagine a house without a suck away which means no toilet in the , bathroom, and kitchen water will be flowing outside the on one side causing the serious smell to the whole neighborhood which is very embarrassing and unacceptable in a city. In the of there are many factors to be put into consideration and they are:
a) THE SLOPE AND LEVELING OF THE SURROUNDING
When a is to be dogged the proper slope of the land is checked because it is better to have the on a slope that is below the toilet and kitchen level. This is to make the flushing and flowing of water and fierce into the easy. It also ensures no further lifting of the toilet seat & kitchen sinker level during installation. It is understandable that if the sucker way is located at a slope higher than the toilet, bathroom, and kitchen, it means extra will be done to raise the level of these parts of so as to ensure proper or possible flowing of water to the sucker way () and this will make process of installation to require so many materials.
b) THE AVAILABLE WITHIN THE
If you are considering a without regard to within the you may end up wasting that little available for due to lack of experience. The scope is this; if is small you need a very deep , although it is more costly in making but it will go a long way to secure more around the . Most has a standard of 10 meters deep to 6 meters deep it is all about the choice of the builder and the available , where there is little the depth can go as far as 15 feet deep. Why this is important is because if the is deep it will require small area in term of land size, the standard in today is 6 feet width by 10 feet breath and 10 feet depth, this is a standard four bedroom flat, while when the depth of this is about 15 feet it will automatically reduce the width and breath to about 3 feet and 7 feet respectively,
c) THE SIZE OF THE
When a is small the is expected to be small and vice versa, the reason is simple because the period or interval of evacuating the when it is filled up will be the concern of the occupants of the . Hence if the size is small while the size is large such that more occupants occupy the it simply means the will get filled up regularly or at a closed interval of time which shall be a source of expenses to the occupants as well as inconvenience. Because of this problem every builder must or usually put into consideration the size of the before allocating for the sucker pits.
d) ESTIMATED NUMBER OF OCCUPANTS IN THE
Due to the economic situation some is over occupied by loads and humans, hence an estimation of the maximum loads and occupants of the must be put in place while planning for the . If the occupants were underestimated it will lead to the quick filling of the .
e) TYPE OF
While the of is inevitable in a it is also necessary you put into consideration the type of to be used as there are many types of sucker pits but the two major types are; the concrete-walled and the laid sucker pits also we have mixed-flow and separate flow .
f) REINFORCEMENT OF THE
To reinforce the you will need the iron or steel rods, the size of the rod determines the strength of the , most standard suckerpits were reinforced with 12 mm to 14 mm rod thickness, these are for loads that are lighter example is small vehicles and minor vibrations but for along a road passable by vehicles it is advisable to use steel rods of 16mm and above. The reinforcement of the is very necessary not6 only for the safety aspect but also to avoid being taken unaware with sudden collapse thereby exposing the whole environment to air . Beside this need for ordinary walled , you still need the rods for the top cover or top so it can be able to stand very well and be stable even though it will not carry heavy loads.
g) TOTAL COST OF IT
While sucker pits could be costly or cheap depending on the type, it is necessary to make proper calculations to ensure there’s adequate finance to ensure it is completed as any built half-way is a waste of money since it cannot be put into use without completion and connection with pipes. Knowing the cost helps the individual to avoid incomplete project since know that according to the types listed earlier the stronger the is, the costlier it is to build.
