Septic Tanks–when to get it pumped?

Posted by:

While I talk about backflow testing often, I actually don’t have a backflow device. It doesn’t mean I don’t practice what I preach; I just recently moved to the “country,” and have adjusted to having well water, and I haven’t installed any real form of sprinkler system–I currently use soaker hoses. One very real change in living far enough from the city is the lack of sewer, which meant adjusting to having a Septic Tank. (We also are too far away ...

Kids aren’t the only one that need education!

Posted by:

With kids back in school, education is at the front of a lot of thoughts.
