A for imagery Pichardo!Most homes with internal bathrooms were build using a septic tank.
So many wanted to avoid having the septic cleaned more often due to excessive toilet paper overflow. It wasn’t because of the pipe diameter much (some yes) and more about saving a buck and the stink for days from the septic’s lid removal.
The lombrices could eat all the feces but not the paper for some reason (taste? ).
The latrines just got moved somewhere else behind the house once full...
