Septic Tank Vastu (It’s Correct Location & Ill-Effects of Incorrectly Located One)

Septic tank vastu is crucial and here’s why:

A septic tank is the area of the house where all the waste (whether human or from kitchen etc.) gets collected before it’s flushed out of the house.

This implicitly means that a septic tank holds negativity in it for slight (or even prolonged) periods of time.

Furthermore, if the tank is located incorrectly, then this negativity will – and it will definitely – interfere with positivity of the house making its residents suffer a lot.

Here’s a direction-wise list of ill-effects that a wrongly located septic tank may cause

Hence, the BEST THING that you can do (in case of incorrectly located septic tank) is to close the wrong one and make a new one at its correct vastu location.

Remember that while closing the wrongly located tank you need to do pooja of Hanuman Ji and then only close the tank.

Hanuman Ji’s Pooja should be done by the Brahmin of the house under guidance of an expert vastu consultant.

Never ever try to close the tank yourself.

This image reveals to you, the best location for a septic tank as per vastu shastra.

Do have a very good look at it!

Septic Tank Vastu Shastra Location
Correct Location of Septic Tank As Per Vastu Shastra

Here’s the explanation of the image:

There’re 3 green colored “right marks” in the image, that’s the location where you’d want the septic tank of your house to be located as per vastu shastra.

Amongst the 3 “right marks”, the best location is towards the West side of the house.

While it’s said not to locate the septic tank in SE (2 orange colored “right marks”) of the house, some vastu consultants would allow that while others wouldn’t agree to this arrangement.

Hence the best you can do is to locate the septic tank as per the “all agreed” location of NW of the house.

It doesn’t matter whether your house is North facing or East, South or West, the septic tank must be in NW of the house.
