French term or phrase:fosse toutes eaux
I already have septic tanks, now there are fosse toutes eaux. (this is domestic, not industrial).
Are these waste water tanks?
Eurodicatom is down (for a change) and I can't find the English for this term.
Thanks in advance.
Explanation: It IS, of course, just a septic tank, but unlike what might be regarded as 'traditional' ones, the trend these days is to feed ALL household waste into it together --- i.e. both toilet AND sink/bath etc.
I rather feel that by getting away from the universally-recognised term 'septic tank', you may be rendering it less understandable --- it is after all only one variant of a 's-t', and probably almost the most universal at that
Best of luck!
