    Most septic tanks , at least in my area , have a single intake for all the wastewater from the house , the septic tank itself is divided into 2 chambers , a primary and a secondary , the solids stay in the primary chamber , only liquid effluent should pass into the secondary chamber , from the tank the effluent then runs either directly to the disposal field in a gravity system , or into a pump chamber in a pressurized system .

    Depending on the design / requirements / codes of the disposal field the effluent may also pass through a treatment tank before being released to the disposal field

    If you do a system where you seperate greywater from blackwater ( poo ) , the disposal fields would be seperate for each system otherwise what's the point of seperating the greywater ?

    Unfortunate for me I just had to replace the pump in my dads grey water...I got to see the inner workings first hand. It's actually pretty cool once you get past the smell.:rolleyes:

    At the time I built our home the tanks were one chamber, I installed the second tank to separate the solids and liquids, only liquids flow to drainage field as you know. The tanks may have two chambers now, I don't know.
    I tried to plan for contingencies like family staying for a while which is why I installed oversized septic. I have friends and family that need to rent port-o-pots when having big parties or extended company, they have older houses but why not do it when building the house from start.
    They have limited receptacles, hose bibs, low ceilings in basement and narrow halls and doors.

    As for the rafters and no trusses OZ, I was not about to rent a crane, I can eventually finish two more rooms, and there is more area in the attic even if I don't finish it. Plus I won't do 2' centers on anything, 16" o.c. Maximum!

    Crane is not needed for trusses. Put a many of them up without a crane.

    oh well that's not really an attic as much as future living space which you can do with attic trusses , having said that I hand framed the roof on my house so that we could have living space inside it , and like you I prefer 16" OC but I have no issue with trusses 2' OC , it's really just a function of spans / loading

    16" OC creates more area for thermal bridging in exterior walls , this is where 1" styrofoam on the exterior of the framing really helps

    Copy that OZ, I had a lot of unpaid help on my house, I.e. unexperienced help, plus I do enjoy making rafters, stairs and the like.
