Today, we finished off putting wooden battens, some of them triangular shapes around in various locations, for example, the dirty water filter support rim and the support bar across the top of the module to hold the lid on.
Then after that lot, we went around with several tubs of plaster filler to fill in gaps, holes and round off corners and edges to aid the laying down of the glass fibre matting, which cannot turn sharp corners very well.
Finally, we inserted three plastic 110mm drain pipe small segments (two next to each other for the rain water coming off the main house’s roof and the third one being a connection to the soak-away downpipe.

Tomorrow, we will rub down all the surfaces and clean everything and start the process of coating everything with the polyester resin and glass fibre layers, both inside and out.
