Might be a long run to the nearest town.

Normally we use 1" HDPE as a minimum. You'll get better volume that way. We've been running it for a few years and never had a failure, PVC fails all the time.

WHY? I've GOT FOUR ACRES TO DRAIN INTO. All my rainwater gutters flow into dry wells. The house sanitary drains flow into the septic tank & into a leach field. All legal here out in the farm land & outside the town limits. All my drainage is legal & by code. The sink in my planed storage shed will be used only for hand washing to get the dirt, mud, washed off my hands before I go into the house mud room. We have red clay soil here which stains everything if your not careful.

Yes- The nearest sewer to my house is about 2 1/2 miles from my front door here in the upstate of SC. Cityfolk. Bless their heart. It's in the right place but sometimes I don't think they understand country living & what that means.

Do whatever I don't drink your water. In these parts it would need to go to the septic.

Ok-I assume you live within a city or town which has sanitary codes. Out here in the country we have sanitary codes as well. If you understand the science of how a septic system functions, and if you observe the sanitary codes in the local area, you would see that there is no contamination of ground, or ground water. And what other choices do we folks have that live out in the country? Should we all pack it in & head for the concrete jungle?
Only three houses on my road & 50 acre hay field across the road from me.
Beats wakening up & looking out the widow to see a bunch of cars, concrete & blacktop.

Gray water is fine for for irrigation even of edible crops when not broadcast. Our city hauls it around on a truck to water the trees and plants.

Maddog, you could be describing where I live. But here if I put a sink in an outbuilding I have to have an approved septic tank and field to discharge it into. I can't just run it out to a drywell. If I just put in a hydrant and let the water run on the ground I'm ok but as soon as I catch any with a sink then the rules change. I know that's silly but that's what the codes say here. Maybe it's different for your area.

I think Ghost is well aware of how a septic system works, he's just trying to help you avoid issues with the health inspectors.

I appreciate it & understand that there are regional differences for whatever reason. However, originally as I recall, Ghost just said it needed to go into a sewer. He did not offer any reason why. So that sort of kicked off the conversation. I'm not speaking against anyone here, or their opinion. But I sometimes do get the feeling that some people in certain parts of the country are envious of us citizens that liver under a lot less restrictions.

For example- Where I am, someone is always burning yard trash like tree branches, leaves, etc. Don't need any permits, fees, etc. Just common sense when to do it & if in doubt we call the local fire dept.to get their ok. But probably in the suburbs of Ohio, if you burn a pile of leaves you end up with a big fine, the cops at your front door, and maybe a jail sentence. And if that happens you probably are living in one of those great socialist/liberally governed cities. Believe it or not. Here & there we still have a few pockets of what American freedom used to be. I still wear a coon skin cap while riding my noisy air polluting tractor.
