I have 2 separate systems for 2 separate buildings
The reed system for grey water ONLY has a grease trap & the grease does 
get composted.
The other system is for blackwater and has a septic tank which receives 
both toilet flush & greywater - when this one needs to have the 
solids/sludge pumped out I'd like to be able to keep all that wonderful 
humanure on site to compost & return to the garden:-)
