    I`m getting ready to build a new kennel for my 2 GSP`s. I have a design in mind, but always open to new ideas. I want the concrete pad to have a drain for washing out. It will have to go into some sort of small septic tank(in town). Anybody have any thoughts. Larry

    55 gallon plastic barrel- have two of them- put a sanitary T inside the barrels and then have a 10 or 20 drain tile running out of the second one== include cleanout pipes in the top also- and bury below freeze line standing upright if you can- sanitary T works that way year around

    will last forever but not a bad idea to have the cleanout pipes

    I went to the local building materials store and got a plastic housing for a sump punp. I then drilled 3/4 inch holes all over that sucker and buried it.

    With the cover in place I just put the stuff in through the slot for the pipe.

    after a yearI put some lime in it. After the second year I took a shovel and emptied it. the bottom half was good dirt, full of red worms. I put the top half back in and limed it, good for another couple years. this was for a 90 lb dog.

    You can do the same with a larger plastic barrel if you have 2 dogs. I would manually fill the drum, and hose down the area separately.
