Customer Testimonials: Hi Paul & Suzanne,

Photo of the first one as requested. The second one is in position but I haven't dug the soak-away yet. Tomorrow maybe...

I lined the insides with 5mm ply to make them less shed-like and because I'm using a smaller (circular container), I was able to make the base section a lot lower. I didn't radius the top of the door because I decided to leave the top spacer in to hold the frame more rigidly.

It's a good design and I'm very pleased with the results.


Kind regards, Gary
