        Separate note, a Did you know moment....

        Do you know where the word shît derived from?

        Back in the 1800s manure was a traded commodity. It used to be shipped over seas with other commodities. The more expensive the commodity, the higher is was loaded on ships. Well, long story short, a particular shipment was loaded in the lower portions of the ship. The gas fumes cause an issue with being compartmentalized. So, after an accident if was later marked in it's containers as "Ship High In Transit" so the gases weren't contained.

          We bought an old farm house and ended up tearing it down and rebuilding. The health dept let us keep the original tank and leach field. Crazy I know but it did last another 14 years. Then a tree fell down and we repetitively drove over the leach field with logs in the bucket of the tractor. Water started puddling in the yard during the drought of summer. We thought the leach field went down into the pasture and not beside the house. After 65 years we had to replace the tank and the field. Unfun money. Treat your septic system nicely hopefully you won’t ever have to replace it.

                  We have had this discussion before. Garbage disposers contribute to septic problems. Food waste is hard for the system to break down. It also invites cooking grease into your system. Soaps in general are bad for septic systems in that when most soaps break down there is a conversion to a type of grease. This grease as well as what is marketed as "flushable" wipes contribute to the sludge in the tank as well as the biomass that forms and clogs the drain field. Typically toilets are ball tested at 2" or better so anything smaller could be considered "flushable". By the way flushable wipes, even those marked as environmentally friendly wreak havoc on municipal waste treatment systems as well.
                  Anti bacterial soaps and bleach from the laundry are even worse. A septic system uses two types of bacteria to function as designed, aerobic which requires oxygen and anaerobic which does not.
                  Kill the bacteria and you're pumping sludge more frequently.

                      Oh, it stunk. The kids were still asleep and the smell permeated into the house and woke them up. And even though it was pretty windy this morning... it had the linger power of several hours.
