With the good comes the not so good. Last night at about 11pm I hear the kids holler “a pipe broke!”. Oh crap! Well, it turns out it wasn’t a pipe but rather the septic system backing up into the downstairs bathroom and over flowing the toilet.

I run outside and pop the top off one of the clean outs and drain the sewer water into the gravel instead of the house.

Next morning I call the septic guy.

We then have to dig up the access cover to the septic tank effluent filter. Yes, it was buried.

We finally get the tank pumped out.

The effluent filter cleaned

And life is good again. I have learned more about septic systems in the last 24 hours than I thought I would ever learn. Turns out it wasn’t as bad as I was afraid of.
