Construction Process


1 - After marking the terrain and taking a point 0 as reference level (it should be the entry point of pipe into the WWG unit), excavation of WWG basin
+ Control Box
(by hand or by machine)


2 - Excavation of plumbing networks
+ drainage trenches
(by hand or by machine)


3- Water proofing of WWG basin
(in clay, concrete o geomembrana)
+ its Control box




WWG water level Control box: left photo below shows 2 pipes as 2 WWG units share 1 control box - system by gravity. The photo on the right also accomodates a (solar) pump as the leachdrain cannot be reached by gravity and is higher from the ground (called an "inverted leachdrain).
