Go ahead and pump it out, then tell the homeowner that his septic tank is good for another 5-10 years.

>> No.2800090

>>2800088
I am the homeowner.
House is at least 100 years old at a guess. Think it is septic as I've seen two pipes leading into the tank, but it wouldn't have been used in a long time.

It probably sterilized itself then.
Looks like medævial brick/arch technology.
Nice find. Take full advantage. It’s grandfathered into the codes of the time, (like none, nobody had to be forced into making good quality stuff)

>> No.2800103

>>2800095
It can sterilise itself?
Reckon it'd be safe to use it for something?
Had a Google but all I found were Reddit freaks and libtards saying no.

Could be post 1900s brick just as well. At least where I live pre 1900s bricks are a lot rounder at the edges and the concave grout joints also indicate more recent work

>>2800103
You could probably store water in there but I wouldn’t trust the sediment so you may want to get that out first

>> No.2800125

>>2800123
Yeah would be a mammoth task.
Only know that the house is at least 100 years old as one of the neighbours has bullet holes from their gaff being strafed in the war.

Rainwater collection is making a come-back. Now that they poison all the city water. And charge too damn much for the 'favor'.

Even out here west by god virginia, they poison the water at the local district. And yes, the bosses house has a cistern (farm doesn't, but there was nothing here cept free gas). I was just fixing it up the other day.

What's above it? I'd be concerned about it collapsing.

Cool, get it pumped out.
I'd pipe in my gutters to it and then you have free water for irrigation of your lawn and garden in the summer.

clean it out, treat it with something so its water tight, run electric, add a vent out the top for air, add furniture. now you have another bedroom and your house value goes up fifty thousand dollars.

If you pressure wash it from the outside and then pump out all the water most of the loose sediment should be gone after a few times. Let it dry out completely for a while. Then fill it to the brim with water and some sanitising agent, leave for a few weeks and remove it. Remaining solids aren’t that dangerous because if they were water soluble they’d be gone already. Good enough to collect rainwater for plants, or as input to a drinking water filtration system

>> No.2800530

>>2800058
If you pump the water out, you could make it into a cellar of sorts, but document and take photos of anything you find personally if >>2800095 or >>2800123 are right. It could be an interesting historical find.

I had a friend whose parents found a thing like this. It was full of old WW2 mortar shells or landmines or something and the EOD took weeks excavating the entire property to clean them all out
