    This is a very complex engineering question that can't be answered with the info given. My first question, though, would be why?

    We are doing a project installing pit latrines. Out client does not want the bath and kitchen water in a soakeaway but want the water evaporated due to the fact we sit with clay soil and a soakeaway will no work. The area is in the Karoo, South Africa and we have a lot of sunshine
