Hi terp80,

Thank you for your kind post. We are not in a hurry with this project. We still live and work in Chonburi city were we also have our home. Our new house will be build in several phases.
So probably it will finish after a long run. Right now we dug out the grey-water pits. I will add 2 pics. The capacity will be around 50m3 each.
We are just waiting for the gravel to fill it up and the plastic to cover it.

Take care

Ed

Ours are not the brand you mentioned. Ours will give a eatable fruit.

I went yesterday to Putthaisong to pick-up my inlaws. Durance my absence they organised to fill up my 2 grey-water pits with gravel and cover it with thick plastic. It looked fine.
Next step will be in November. Connecting to Electricity and put a (buried) electricity cable towards the building area.
But first ..... next Saturday flying to Europe for our honeymoon trip.

Looks good. Did you make the holes in the pipes for the drain by yourself or did you find pre-made ? :)

Didn't find pre-fabs. But with a 10 mm wood drill (the one with the big sharp tip) it was a piece of cake.
