First time for me

Wen to spend the holiday with a friend and I get a call from a relative of the wife that their house has a real bad odor... So I go right over...

When I get to the house i enter the front door and man were they right! I know raw sewage when I smell it and THIS WAS RAW!!! I looked all over the house and could not find anything.... Grabbed a ladder from the shed and i could still smell it outside... Hmmmm so I look around outside and there it is the neighbors Septic system had failed... Completely rusted through and actually caused a sink hole at that spot.... I am so glad I do not mess with those things!!!

went on a call Friday. 5hp duplex pumps stopped working simultaneously at a local power plant. When I lifted the lid on that 3,000 gal. sump, all I smelled was money.
