Normally the U-bend is fitted at the beginning of the drain pipe under the shower; existing shower drains in concrete could be modified by putting the U-bend at the end of the pipe inside the septic tank. A vent must be fitted to the tank which goes up to the roof to release the gas above the house, preventing bad smells around the home.
If you are a home owner, a businessman, an architect or a builder, I urge you to plan ahead and install these cheap pieces of plastic that will keep your home or business smelling fresh and clean and protect you and your family or your employees and customers. And if you have tenants, they may be encouraged to stay longer if you have the cleanest smelling accommodation they have stayed in.
I also urge the government to conduct a public education program on hygienic building practices and please modify hospitals and public buildings where possible.
I am sure that this widespread problem has had a serious impact on public health and eliminating it would improve the general health of the community and save a lot of medical expense as well as heartache. Prevention beats cure every time.
