ROTOTANK™ SEPTIC TANK INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

  • Excavate the correct size hole in which to insert the RotoTank™ septic tank, making sure that there is enough clearance around the RotoTank™
    septic tank to work with ease.
  • A 1:6 river and cement mix is required to cover at least 300mm across the base of the excavated
  • hole. Make sure the river sand cement mix is properly packed and levelled. Make sure no solid
  • objects are protruding from cement sand mix.
  • Insert the RotoTank™ septic tank into the excavated hole and bed the RotoTank™ septic tank properly,
  • by gently rocking the RotoTank™ septic tank backwards and forwards in the cement mix, making sure
  • the manhole is accurately levelled.
  • When joining pipes to the RotoTank™ septic tank, it is easily done by using a water soap mix and
  • ramming the required pipes home.
  • A 1:6 concrete sand mix should be carried out in 300mm thick layers from the base up to 100mm below
  • the top of the RotoTank™ septic tank with the lid in place on the man hole. The backfill material
  • should preferably be sandy and slightly moist.
  • Each 300mm layer should be densely compacted to achieve 90% of modified ASH TO maximum dry density.
  • For excavated holes deeper than 2.150mm or where a high water table is anticipated, backfill
  • material must consist of a concrete mix of 5% cement and 95% selected granular material.
  • Activation of the RotoTank™ septic tank can be done by using an activator to start RotoTank™ septic tank.
  • Connect the toilet outlet to the RotoTank septic tank inlet with a 110mmPVC pipe.
  • Connect the overflow or outlet to the French drain, making sure that it is not too close to
  • household underground water supplies, e.g. borehole.
  • When you flush the toilet, the water and solids collect in the RotoTank™ septic tank, therefore any
  • solid waste product will float on the water.
  • The bacteria from the activator will dissolve the solid waste products and produce an almost clear
  • water which settles at the bottom of the tank, which then flows out of the overflow and into the French drain.
