Last day of his birthday weekend at the cabin and the drains back up. That included the kitchen sink, the shower and the toilet.
They plunged and plunged until the seal on the toilet broke. Perfect.
He did learn a lot about septic fields this weekend.
Did you know that the septic tank should be only about 1 foot short of being full? Do you care?
Did you know that there is an intake and an outflow opening too?
Did you know that most problems are caused by the intake pipe being clogged up. In our case it was plant roots.
Did you know it is really hard to dig in earth that is frozen solid but if you heat it with a propane heater you can pick through it?
Did you know you can do a load of some one's laundry without even physically touching it? Believe me, you can. Yuck.
