Seeing as you have taken what I wrote literally, perhaps, as spanish hopes points out, you could enlighten me with the English word for bidet. Might use one then! :)

When we moved in a bidet was already fitted so you just have to give it a go. Unfortunately I had damaged my back, was pretty immobile for most of a year and had put on weight. I was eventually removed after copious amounts of Fairy liquid and two strong people to pull me out. :oops:

Pozo negro is the Spanish term for a septic tank (not a sceptic tank, as that is a special device that doesn't trust that you will only put the correct effluent in!). The old-fashioned three-chamber brick & concrete things are no longer allowed, being replaced with biological ****-eaters usually made of plastic, although the term pozo negro has come to mean them too.
If you are in a town or large village, you will probably have mains sewerage as per UK, but in the campo (country) everyone has their own ****!
If you can persuade the architect/builder/town hall architect, the best system is to have only the toilets plumbed into the bio-chamber, with all other waste water going into an old-style pozo, outputting into the land, via soakaways. This stops the excess water used by us townies for washing machines, showers and sinks from stopping the biological action in the three chambers, resulting in a gentle smell of rotting sewerage familiar to so many. See previous threads on pozos - it is a real problem.
In either case, you must minimise the volume of non-human waste going in, as those strange devices used by ladies to ride their menstrual cycle do not decompose properly - and never, ever use stuff like bleach, toilet duck and so on, as they kill the bacteria you need to make your waste decompose.
What a lovely subject for a sunny Sunday :lol:

There is a large town near us called Pozo Alcon, whats that all about then?
Don't think they would call their town a sh*t hole on purpose, or would they?

pozo means ‘well’
negro, of course, ‘black’
so you’ve got black well or black hole -
in english, a pozo negro is a cesspool (usa) or cesspit (uk)
what’s wrong with them is that they allow waste to seep back into the land
a septic tank is a ‘fosa septica’...
incidentally - they don’t smell unless
they are’t functioning correctly or
the waste is exposed to the air...
