The man with the smelly lorry came this morning to do our regular emptying of our Septic Processing Tank. It is almost a year since the last one.
We then did some pressurised washing inside the chamber and down the pipes going off to our leech field and get everything ready for another year. In fact, we decided that we will book in the next service in 9 months as it was full. We thought that it was a bit soon but we realised that because we put down all our kitchen food waste through our disposal grinder in the sink, this is a large quantity of material and it fills the tank more quickly. We had already had plans to solve this problem when our proper kitchen is built and will collect this kitchen waste and throw it on our compost heap instead.
