I'd posted about being able to get our blocked pipe to the septic tank open, at least enough for things to finally drain. I thought we would be good for a while. I was wrong. Things were fine, at first. I got my shower in, no problem. Then my daughters took their showers. By the … Continue reading I guess I spoke too soon!
The old basement is the heart of the plumbing in this house. It's where all the pumps and tanks are, plus we have a couple of sets of taps; one for the laundry sink, and one for where the washing machined to be, and pipes with shut off valves leading to the taps outside.

We've had a steady rain, all day today. A perfect day to be indoors, with a hot cup of tea. But nooo... That would be too easy! Late in the morning, as the girls were heading upstairs, they discovered water. The bathroom floor had water all around the toilet, and with our uneven flooring, it … Continue reading Well, today has been an adventure (updated)
