Synopsis:

This indispensable guide will save those who live or spend their leisure time in rural areas time, money and headaches.

Packed with solid, easy-to-understand advice -- and clear, detailed illustrations -- Country and Cottage Water Systems takes the mystery out of rural water systems and their components. Whether planning a new system or updating, expanding or fixing an existing one, the ideas, the know-how and the solutions are all here.

The book includes tips for do-it-yourselfers, and guidance for those hiring a professional, on a variety of topics, including:

  • Methods for testing water
  • Making water safe to drink
  • Choosing the right pump
  • Dealing with environmental issues and legal concerns
  • Planning a system's connections
  • Types of wells and how to dig a new one or revitalize an old one
  • Understanding and installing waste systems
  • Troubleshooting septic systems
  • How to reduce a septic system's footprint
  • The pros and cons of alternative toilets
  • How to build an outhouse
  • Getting rid of gray water
  • How to keep pipes from freezing in winter
  • How to winterize a seasonal water system for easy spring start-up

    From getting water in to getting waste out, Country and Cottage Water Systems helps ensure clean, safe water for country and cottage dwellers, as well as hassle-free and environmentally responsible waste disposal.
