Very latest video! - on Richards sewer pumping system Mk2 added Feb 2014 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZK4Nvw70kE&feature=c4-overview&list=UULWU1uZvHaGB7COZvabsXYw
- An enclosed area of 1.5 square metres at least 800mm wide
- A small sink with hot and cold water
- A flushing toilet
- Enough electricity supply as showers is hungry on power when used. The total cost of the power is very small but the wires need to be thicker to provide the enormous power safely.
- A shower cubicle with waterproof enclosure
- Waste exit and water input
- Ensure the pipes won’t freeze
- Provide service valves (stop taps) in the system at appropriate points
- Test the system under full pressure before setting the pressure for normal use
- Ensure all components can be accessed for servicing

From Richard - I just completed a job with new design of plumbing system which will pump sewage 9 metres high and up to 100 metres. You can view this on youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZK4Nvw70kE
Update on 11/12/2015
From Richard - I have been called in to design and install a kitchenette and toilet extension to a log cabin supplied by Dunster House. The cabin is to become a place of work for 5 people. All the system will be the same as others. I need to cut a hole in the back attach an extension with two small rooms install the plumbing and now familiar macerator, tank and pump system. I did survey via client photos and must all work b4 Xmas. I am pretty confident - we will see. It seems no-one local knew how to do it!
