  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So apparently I have an extra septic tank on my property, that's ventilated and rather large, and was somehow based on an underground wine cellar that a used car lot made in the 1930's. Weird stuff. But, apparently it's large enough that you can actually get down in it and it stopped being...

    first consider your privacy, accessability, and a deadline to complete. i would say privacy is important. therefor, your hole will not be dug until your "bunker" is ready. you can always order an oversized concrete septic tank or something, but they are expensive, small, and it is hard to stay...
