The installation of the equipment must respect a minimum distance of 3m from the property boundary and from any trees or vegetation that have developed a significant root system.
The septic tank must be installed as close as possible (less than 10 metres) to the untreated waste water outflow point, in order to prevent clogging by grease deposits in the inlet line. If the septic tank is installed over 10 metres away, a grease trap must be installed upstream of the septic tank.
The septic tank, which is sealed, can be installed downstream at least 35 m from any intake point. This should be verified with the local authorities.
