Re: Roll Call.... everyone alright

You're quite right, Bonnie.  We have never had trouble since the first year we
moved here - 1970 - and at that point we installed a new field.  But I do have
a husband who is a total old maid about some things.  I don't know how he
has put up with me for so long, for I am the opposite of a good housekeeper.
But some things you just don't argue with.  To him, getting the septic tank
pumped on a two-year schedule is like getting the oil changed in the car on
a strict schedule.

Years (and years) ago, my husband was assigned to a Public Health
Department where he became friends with a specialist who maintained that if
a septic tank was properly installed there should never be problems with
it.  We have lived in our house since 1978 and never had to have it
drained.  Ours is located on a slope below the house.  One thing more...I
don't have a garbage disposal which will wreck havoc with the septic
system.  Only one or two of our neighbors have ever had to have theirs
pumped out.  I'm wondering if it would be helpful to consult with a county
specialist...can't imagine having to dig it out every two years.
