The least sophisticated system should be used wherever possible for the majority of pit emptyings. Simple pit latrines The simple pit latrine (Fig. 3) consists of a hole in the ground (which may be wholly or partially lined) covered by a squatting slab or seat where the user defecates. The defecation hole may be provided with a cover or plug to prevent the entrance of flies or egress of odour while the pit is not being used. The cover slab is commonly surrounded by some form of superstructure that provides shelter and privacy for the user.
The volume for sludge and scum storage depends on the frequency with which the tank is desludged, the method of anal cleaning of the users and the temperature. Estimating the volume of a septic tank Retention time A sewage retention time of 24 hours is assumed to be sufficient. This should correspond to the situation immediately before the tank is desludged. After desludging the effective liquid retention time is greater because liquid then occupies the regions previously full of sludge and scum.
In this way, the twin pits can be used indefinitely, each pit in turn being used for two years, rested for two years, emptied and then used again. The positioning and shape of the pits is determined to a large extent by the space available. Some options are shown in Fig. 16. If possible, the distance between the pits should be not less than the depth of a pit. This is to reduce the possibility of liquid from the pit in use entering the pit not in use. If the pits have to be built adjacent to each other, the dividing wall should be non-porous.
