Dual compartment septic tanks are required by law in some states, one of the reasons they are becoming more common.

Often visitors will get the stomach flu because they do not have these immunities built up. It's the same thing in Mexico.  The first few months you are their you will get sick...but after a while you will build immunities and then you can tolerate it. (more…)
