Notes on Septic Tank
Septic tank has to be constructed or located as per Vastu, the septic tank is also called as Cesspool or Cesspit an underground reservoir of wastage and an underground constructed container for the temporary storage of liquid sewage or waste pit conservancy tank or covered cistern which can be used to dispose of urine and feces or poop and more generally of all sewage, discharges and refuse.
It is a more antiquated solution than a sewer system. Traditionally, it was a deep cylindrical chamber dug into the earth, having approximate dimensions of 1 meter and 2-3 meters depth.
Their appearance was similar to that of hand-dug water well. Many residents in previous days have constructed the septic tank at South, West, Southwest, Vayavya (Northwest) corner, and the septic tank should be constructed in the Paishacha area, the open area all around the building.
It should not be exactly in the Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, Northwest, and Brahamsthana.
Any faulty construction of a septic tank in the northeast may spoil the groundwater sources.
Its foul smell, mixed with benefit solar and magnetic radiations will enter the house. In the Southeast, the kitchen is considered best. The activities of creation in the kitchen don’t match with the activities of destruction in the septic tank.
In the olden days there was no septic tank for toilets. Today they have become necessary. For modern septic tanks a pit has to be dug.
Location is to be in the North direction (read step by step guidance of North facing homes) or East. In no other direction should it be sunk. If latrine is planned for in the east, away from eastern compound wall in line with the house, without touching its wall. The pit has to be sunk in the east measuring half the area.
South west is the most suitable place for toilets. This is recorded in our ancient texts. Modern writers have transported the same in their books because they lack experience. The Septic tank should be arranged in the north without touching the boundary or house, in the middle of the open area.
Similarly in the East also. Latrines without pits can be there in the southwest. No harm, but they should be in height position than the ground level of the house flooring.
First preference has to be placed to construct the septic tank in the middle East or middle north only. The remaining parts are not yet suggested.
But today a pit is required for septic tanks, but then a pit in the southwest is wrong as per vaastu. Not only wrong but very harmful. If latrine is planned in the southwest it should be on a higher level without pit and pit can be arranged in one half of the north.
Or in one half of the east. If latrine is planned for Northwest (study about Homes built at Northwest Direction ) it should not touch the North wall and compound wall. A room should be built alongside the house and also septic tank can be in one half of the north.
Toilets can be arranged as shown in the models here. The latrine can face any direction but W.C. should be invariable to north and south. It is the best direction. It should never be towards the east. It is not proper nor it is auspicious. Perfection vastu for home is always advisable
Septic Tank Procedural Mechanism
There is a legend in the Ramayana which is worth mentioning here. Rama went in exile into forests along with Sita and Laxmana at the command of Dasaratha. Bharata returns from his grandfather’s place.
He was pained to know that people suspected him for the exile of Rama. Then he swore “I”d fall into the worst place where people relieve themselves against the sun defiling the Lord, go”. So east is sacred.
Evidence in Ayurveda also supports this. Latrines (WC or Western Commode) and bathrooms can be arranged inside the house as shown in this diagram.

Is Water Sump and Septic Tank Can Be Constructed in Same Line?

The septic tank and water storage sump should not be constructed very near to each other, sufficient distance has to be provided to the water storage sump and septic tank. If the water sump and Septic tank are very near then there is a possibility of mixing the dung with water, it is too dangerous for humans. So be careful before constructing the septic tank and water storage sump at home.
Distance Between Septic Tank And Water Storage Sump
Here the Septic tank placed at same East direction and the water sump has changed to northeast north side. Sufficient space should be provided in between these two. Health is most important for humans. It should not be spoiled at any cost.
Sufficient Space Given In Between Water Sump And Septic Tank
The same principle applies at North direction. ST here constructed at North direction and water sump placed towards the northeast of east direction. Safe and good idea.
There are several secrets in the placement of the Septic Tank in the properties, before constructing the ST, we must calculate the dimensions of the property, in some properties the dimensions maybe 100 meters or 200 meters in the North direction and 100 or 200 meters at East direction, at that moment or in those cases how to construct the ST, shall we consider the entire site dimension or only house dimensions, so it is better to consult one expert before taking the decision.

Toilet/bathroom construction on top of the Septic Tank:
Why we should not construct the toilet on top of the Septic tank, any construction either it may be a septic tank or any other structure should not construct on the sump or septic tank, because the structure may damage in the future and the gases formed in the septic tank will reach easily to the structure if there is any holes, etc.
If the structure is good like the structure is constructed with RCC, then there is no need of worry about this issue, we should remind one thing here, that the structure should be strong and there should not be any leakage and it should not be damaged at any cost, then no issues at all. You may construct the structure on the septic tank.
Please note that this structure should only be toilet, it should not be any other room. If there is any other rooms, what shall we do then, same principles apply, that there should not be any leakage and recommending for only strong structures. Thanks to Saravanan - Tiruvallur - Tamilnadu - India.
Closing Northeast Septic Tank
Respected sir, we used an old septic tank situated on the Northeast side. One Vastu expert visited in our land and advised me to remove the septic tank from here to North West corner side. As per his advice, I have built a new one in Northwest corner. The old one is still northeast side without usage. Please advise me whether correct or not and your valuable advice me sir, please sir. - Antony - Kochi - Kerala.
Dear Mr. Antony, if you changed the Septic Tank from Northeast to Northwest then first ask workers to clean up the entire NE quadrant, ask them to remove the entire tank mud, and clean it. Leave it for 11 days minimum having a secured lid or grill on it. Later fill it with water and clean it and make one water storage sump and use that water to your garden trees. Anyway, the exact Northwest corner septic tank is not recommended, we hope you have taken complete precaution in constructing the new ST. Wish you all the best.
On a small South facing plot where is a little gap between the house wall and the compound wall is it ok to have a water sump under the house in the Northeast direction and a septic tank in West North West? Due to lack of space elsewhere both would come under the house. Some people say having under the house is not good. But in modern days since these are covered I assume it is okay. Could you please confirm Thanks - Pradeep - Chennai.

What are best places to have Septic Tank in the basement?
In few countries the basement is inevitable. Particularly in New Jersey, New York, Illinois, etc areas the basement is mandatory. If there is a open space around the home then we can arrange the septic tank in the open area. In some cities like in New Delhi, Mumbai, etc, some homes does not have open space around the home.

He is very detailed oriented person and never compromises with his work. I am typically not interested to deliver the reviews. But after working with Mr. Suresh I decided to share my experience. Mr. Suresh has great expertise in providing vastu consultation to USA property. He is always available through email and phone l to answer questions.

"I contacted Sureshji to consult on our current home. He was spot on in identifying vastu dosha in regards to the problems we were having. He suggested remedies but we are still looking for a new house. Since then I have been in touch with him for finding a right home for us. He is very sincere and truly wishes better lives for everyone. He doesn’t compromise with quality and is always responsive to queries. He recommends solutions as per location as Vastu rules differ for each country. He is greatly contributing to the society with his knowledge of Vastu and dedication towards his work. Keep up the good work Sureshji and wish you success and happiness!" - Megha - Virginia - USA
I have consulted Suresh Garu during December 2014 during the process of buying a house in Texas, USA. I have occupied the house for one year now, and feel like dropping a review regarding my experience during the entire process. I am very much satisfied with the kind of service I received from him. He is very knowledgeable and I was often stunned by his detailed analysis during the course of my interaction with him. He was very much accessible over phone (perhaps more than 10 times for one house plan!) and the price is very much reasonable especially compared with the cost of the house. I noticed his burning desire to help me in making informed decisions on certain things. I have seen some people pretending to know this subject and misguiding those who come for help by saying only what we want to hear. SubhaVaastu is definitely not that one. Finally, I am strong believer of leaving certain things to experts in those subjects. I have been in US for more than 13 years and have seen people doing their own corrections (by reading website articles) trying to save few dollars. Please don’t do that. You would end up in causing more damage. I highly recommend you to engage SubhaVaastu in your next project - Satish - Dallas - TX - USA
