Plumbing lesson #1


When remodeling it is essential to cap off all unfinished lengths of plumbing. . . . especially the drainline.

Your drain system will not work adequately or effectively without being tightly sealed.

And your sewer water bubbling out into your work area is NOT what you want to clean up.

I speak from experience.

LOL!

Well - what I thought was 'good progress' on clearing out the sewer line turns out to be 'not much progress' - and I think my septic tank is backed up and I need it pumped out.

But first - I need to try one more attempt at augering out the main line just incase that *is* the problem. I had to buy a longer auger last night, the one I had just wasn't long enough.

In the process of doing that, however, my poor dog, Jack, was in a fight with one of our other dogs and we had to take him to the ER and get operated on, but he'll be fine. . . but there went money to pay for septic management at the moment.

*edit*
They're coming tomorrow to pump it out.
We dug out the openings to the tank and were able to declog the inlet, but it still needs to be pumped asap.
