We've just purchased 20 acres in the Tai Tapu area (ChCh). We are all excited but a tiny bit nervous as we have never embarked on this kind of journey before. Unfortunately because of current "events" (not going to mention the "E" word!) we can't yet proceed with our plans to build... BUT the barn is going up and the sceptic tank down and the children are dreaming about and listing all the "pets" that we are going to have!

This looks like an amazingly informative forum...I've been lurking in the background for sometime now - I think it's about time I joined in

Hi and welcome. Don't tell anyone because they don't know yet, but I too am a bit of a sceptic. I think that the whole problem is because of the CIA.
And as for being septic, yes, I have one of those tanks too. I understand that the double system works better than a single tank :-).
Remember that the only silly question is the one you don't ask about, and you have to pay for advice, so we only give suggestions.
