depending on how cheap you want to get... a 55 gallon plastic barrel or two might not be a bad starting place. I would imagine you could run your drain line into a barrel, with one field line coming out of it.

Understand I am not suggesting this, but some people dig a big hole and cover it with a sheet of plywood, pvc pipe into the hole...

Others buy a real small septic tank and bury that.

Here's the cheapest way to do it properly. If this is too much work/money, then digging a hole will be the only cheaper option.

I think one of the most important things to do correctly, is get your slope of your drain pipes right. If you have too much slope, then your solids won't be transported down the pipe correctly. It's the case of when more is NOT better.

Get two 55 gallon metal drums (the plastic ones will float out of the hole).

Dig a hole large enough to set the two drums side by side.

In the drum closest to the house cut a hole large enough to slide a piece of 4 or 6" PVC into about 4 inches below the top of the barrel. Drill (5) 1/2" holes in the bottom of this barrel in the shape of the 5 dots on a dominoe. This is the drum that you'll run your sewer pipe to, the easiest way is to just use an L at the end of the pipe and hang it in the top of the barrel.

In the drum farthest from the house cut a hole large enough to slide a piece of 4 or 6" PVC into about 4 inches below the top of the barrel. Drill (5) 1/2" holes in the bottom of this barrel in the shape of the 5 dots on a dominoe.

Connect the two drums with a short length of PVC pipe that fits the holes you cut in the two barrels, then in the space surrounding the drums pour readymix cement (already mixed with water) until the cement gets up about half way on the barrels. You might have to put some weight on the barrels to keep them from floating up while you do the cement, so be slow when pouring it.

Let the cement stand over night then fill with enough cement to cover the other half of the barrels. It sounds like a lot but it's not, just don't dig too large of a hole.

You can cover the barrels with whatever you want; most folks use heavy tin but it will last forever.

I have some 300 gallon plastic tanks that can be used and would work great if anyone is interested. They had chemicals in them at one time and should not be used for potable water or feed, but would make great septic tanks and have had a few people use these for that. The tanks have a 2" valve drain at the base and a large (maybe 10") hole in the top. I'll give these away if anyone is interested in picking them up. I'm located in Tomball.

spread hay under and over your field lines before you bury it also.
