This Can't End Well.............

Not a pleasant entry...But I'm just keeping it real....Never say "what else can go wrong ", or this truck could show up in your driveway...When will I learn ....We noticed our "little stinky problem" about a month ago, and we've been hoping and praying that it magically disappears and our neighbor's don't organize a linch mob against us. With my beloved saying this shouldn't happen to a three year old house, my response to him was...Tell it to the neighbors, because not only is the odor outside bad, but it's starting to back up in the house...THIS IS NOT GOOD.

The guy was super nice and gave us all the different scenarios that could be causing the problem, worse case scenario, $2000.00......Guess which scenario we were.......The septic tank was not properly installed and our builder shouldn't have gotten a permit to begin with..



After watching this poor fella almost fall, and knee deep in the stuff that nightmares are made of, plus the heat and humidity on top of the stench... I have realized that people who work for a septic tank company are extremely under paid......





I have decided that if I can blog about a septic tank........I can blog about anything.

I'm in the midst of the same thing-only mine at least was 30+ years old. I have PILES of sand and gravel everywhere. They should be done today--yea!! And I agree-they are way underpaid for this job. Hope it's the last time in my life!

Well there is one nice thing about having an over flowing septic. It can be pumped. Not like the outside Johnnie we had growing up. We just had to move it when it was over flowing. There is always a bright side isn't there. Have a blessed day.

ARG! We live in a newer 'hood, our house is only 5 yrs old and the others all 5-8 yrs...and our roads were put in improperly, so there are patch ups, sink spots...very upsetting when you expect your new palace to be perfect...the moat too!

We have had our septic tank pumped twice since we have lived here in our house ( 16 yrs later this month ). Bad sound when the toilet does not want to flush.

I agree..........if you can blog about this, you can talk about anything.

Maybe a nice casserole or cake for the neighbors for the smells.
