We started to notice our toilet in the master bedroom making a funny noise. Sort of a glub, glub and bubbles coming up, where everything should be going down. Ya'll get what I'm talking about, right? First concern, need a new toilet. Naw, that can't be it, this one is only 2 years old. Other concern, it could be our septic. Yep, we live where there is not a sewer, but a septic.
At this point, most people would say, no big deal. You call the septic company, they send someone out and they open the tank and clean it out. (Not a job for the faint of heart, or someone with a strong sense of smell!) Most people could do that unless the location of your tank looks like ours:Yes, under all of that is our septic tank. So, while I was in Colorado, my wonderful husband, by himself, started to dig.
