My favorite tavern, in the world, Nicks was backing up yesterday. I was called at 6:30 am. I arrived about 10:00 am. I had another emergency I was working on at the time. The tanks were backed up.
I had just pumped it out three months prior. What gives? I used my inspection mirror and verified that the outlet baffle had rotted off. Oy. I had to pump the tank, put a ladder in, and enter. There’s no other way with this type of repair.
I opened up the drainfield and cleaned it out while I was there. Repairs have been made. It’s done. Thank Goodness. Drove like crazy and got all my work done. Just about 30 minutes late to picking up my boys.
Thank goodness I have an understanding ex wife. She remembers that some things cannot be planned. I don’t just get to get off work at 5:00 o’clock. I have to stay until the work is done.
Oh, and I nearly forgot. Amanda, who’s awesome BTW, bought me lunch. I was so hungry. Nothing makes one hungry like entering a septic tank. Have a great day. 🙂
