Do you remember when I said that it’s never just one thing here? And how we had to fix our septic tank? Yeah. We got that one done and decided to expand the one for the dorms in anticipation of how much use they’re going to get. We thought we were making good progress. We thought we were getting close to being done.
Wrong. And wrong.
A couple days ago more stinky water started bubbling up out of the earth in a completely new place. Turns out the one tank that we rerouted pipes from, still had pipes going into it from the staff bathroom and the house. The guys started digging and now the yard looks like a mouse maze. Today was the day to change out the poop pipes (yes, I said poop on my blog) and no one wanted to cut it. I wonder why? Chris decided to take one for the team and got to work.
The two guys in yellow shirts (Jean and Israel) are standing at the dorm septic tank. Chris, in the far right of the photo is cutting pipe where the new pipe is going to get attached, running the staff bathroom “stuff” to the new septic tank – the dirt area in the middle.
So, for those of you keeping track…
Number of full septic tanks: 2
Number of new septic tanks dug: 2
Number of pipes that have been rerouted: I have no idea
The experience of living here in poop land: Priceless
No really, if we ever move back to North America and have a septic tank overflow we are so ready.
