Backed Up Sewage-Yuck
We have a home with a cesspool, similar to a septic tank. We bought the house in 1981, yeah,we've been here a number of years. The cesspool was new in 1979, we had the paperwork. Supposedly they last 25-30 years so Time Is Up. It's been cleaned, chemicals put in, and airated (sp). It backs up every few years, we get it pumped out and chemicals added. It backed up twice this week-Tuesady, we got it pumped Wednesday. But it happened again today, Froiday. Called the cesspool company and they are sending someone tomorrow. Don't need advice. I just need to vent. This is a very unpleasant expereience. I'd call it a Disaster. It is to me. Smelly water in the basement. Can't do laundry or dishes or even take showeres till this gets resolved. New cesspolls are aropund $3 grand. My hair is so dirty greasy,I need a shampoo.
