How to Construct a Soak Pit Water from our kitchens and washrooms often flows out in open drains. It stagnates and the surrounding areas get dirty and smell bad. A lot of water is wasted and it also breeds diseases. A soak pit is an easy way to avoid all this. A soak pit purifies the water and
releases it back into soil. The groundwater table is maintained. Let us assume that every day 20 litres water used for cooking and bathing per person, just flows away. Consider that there are 1,000 people in the village which means the total amount of water wasted is 20 times 1,000, that is 20,000 litres per day. If this water is conserved with a soak pit, 20 litres times 1,000 persons times 365 days, or 7.3 million litres of water that is washed away can be reused every year. It works like magic and hence,
a soak pit is also called a magic pit. The material needed to build a soak pit
is easily available. Large stones, small stones, a measuring tape, limestone for marking, a PVC pipe of three-inch diametre and requisite length, a bend to join two pipes and a cement tank. This tank has to be one-metre high. The base of the tank must be closed. Six inches below the top of the tank, four holes of three-inch diametre are made around the tank, as shown here. The tank must have a lid
with a hole of three-inch diametre. If cement tanks are not available nearby, a plastic drum with a lid can be used too. But the drum has to have four holes – six inches below the top measuring three-inch diametre each. In the lid, make a hole of three inches diametre so that a pipe can be fitted into it for the flow of water. Choose a spot around the area where
the sewage water flows away – a clear space of four feet by four feet is needed. We are ready. Now, an engineer who works with NGO WOTR, Mr. Prashant Kalaskar will show us
how a soak pit is made. Hello, viewers. Let us understand
how a soak pit is constructed. For example, in this house, the water stagnates here and flows into the fields. We will now be marking the spot for the soak pit. The area marked here is
four feet long and four feet wide. The pit that we will dig needs to be four feet deep. Now let us see the process of building the pit. We line the base with larger stones. Then, the cement tank is placed right in the middle of the pit. Layers of big and small stones are placed around the pit. The stones are filled up to the brim of the tank. Be careful about the holes in the tank. Keep some free space around them so that water can then easily flow out of the tank. Then, place the lid on top of the tank. The open channel where water was being let into… We will be connecting a PVC pipe there. The pipe is three inches in diametre. Fix the three-inch pipe here and
connect it to the soak pit. We have cut out as much of the pipe as we need. Now we have to join the pipe. To do that, create a slope along the natural contour for the flow. Dig a small channel and bury the pipe in it so that it stays firm. If possible, the outlet from where
the wastewater emerges should be connected directly to this pipe. Link it to the soak pit from there. Place a mesh at the joint where the pipe is connected to the outlet to prevent sludge and impurities
from entering the soak pit. Don’t forget to clean the mesh periodically. Once the pipe is placed, cover it well with soil. This will keep the pipe in place and protect it from damage. Our pipe is completely covered. Now we are going to add small stones into the pit and add soil over it. Please note: Under any circumstances, don’t let rainwater inside the soak pit. Hence, cover the soak pit properly well before the rains. Now, wastewater from the kitchen and the washroom will reach the soak pit through the pipe. The impurities in the water will
sink to the base of the tank. The rest of the water will
come out of the holes in the tank. It will get filtered and seep back into the soil, adding to the level of clean groundwater. The water which flows out of our house can be used by us again thanks to the soak pit. Building soak pits is easy and the government also provides funds for it,
under MGNREGA. Once it is built, a soak pit stays forever. It just has to be cleaned every two or three years. If every family builds soak pits, the surroundings will become cleaner. Everyone should take the initiative. Each village must come forward and build soak pits. Thank you.

    इतकाही खर्च करण्याची आवश्यकता नाही. कुठल्याही इंजिनियरची गरज नाही. सांडपाणी जिथून घराबाहेर पडतं तिथे ३ बाय ३ किंवा कमी/जास्त खड्डा करा. त्यात मोठे दगड व थोडया प्रमाणात विटांचे तुकडे भरा. जमिनीशी समतल आल्यावर कोरडी माती टाका. यात सांडपाणी मुरतं. व तुमच्या विहिरींची/बोअरची पाण्याची पातळी वाढते. हा शोषखड्डा विहिरीपासून तीस फूट लांब असावा.
