Building a waste water tank
Waste water tanks are a hot item these days. They are becoming mandatory in barges, so you will need one, like it or not. Since I keep the water system aboard as simple as possible, I decided to build one my own (and the help of some friends).
It is not necessary to build one. There are many professional tanks for sale, you can even make them the size you want. Some people prefer to have two waste tanks, a brown and black one. Gray is for shower and kitchen water, the black one for the toilet. You can then choose to reuse the gray water tank for flushing the toilet and so ending in the black water tank.
What size do you need?
Depending on whether you want to empty the tank regularly and the amount of people living aboard you can make up the size you need. The bigger the tank make sure it is baffled.
What should it be made off?
It is better to build a tank in stainless steel or thick plastic. Metal is fine as well, as long as you protect the inside with cement or good quality paint.
