The waste pipe leading to our septic tank was plugged today and started to back up slightly. Lucky me, in subzero temps I got to dig the snow off the yard to try to find where to dig to get to the cover. Finally found it and dug the semi-frozen dirt and sod off of it, removed the cover and “gaffed” out the TP that SOMEONE in our house uses by the truck load…
Went inside and thought about snaking the waste pipe from the floor drain that branches off of the main line but since there was a bit of water pooled on top of the drain I thought I’d try using a plunger. The plunger sucked up a bunch of black water and TP fibers and then miraculously, it cleared the line and everything seems fine now.
So including the clean up, that’s how I’ve spent my day so far.
I guess it could have been worse.
I could have been ice fishing!
