the trials and tribulations of being a landlord..... the tenant complained during the lease signing meeting that the sump pump pit was starting to smell like backed up sewage. so we had the septic system pumped today, hoping that was all that was needed to fix the problem (as opposed to a failing septic system). there was close to 5 feet of sludge that was pumped out. over 1500 gallons of the crap (pun intended) not to mention a bunch of trash that should never have been in there to begin with (condoms, paper dixie cups). i can only imagine the last time it had been pumped. [rolleyes]

ArLady, I know what you are talking about sounds like one of my renters rented from you.

I had to shop-vac out a lift pump once for my job. A 4' deep by 2' wide cylinder, coated with human excrement. So I feel your pain.

Yuck! From one landlord to another, I feel 'ur pain. Just dumped $1000 to re-tile a leaky shower. Water damage destroyed the ceiling in the living room. Fun fun! I'm sure glad we don't need septic tanks around these parts. --LS

Wait 'til you have a toilet explode and have sewage backed up shin deep, spewing forth like a geyser of poo from the dying toilet. Was like that in my old apartment because the dipstick upstairs would always flush her used condoms and non-flushable tampons/pads down the toilet. Thank God I own a house now. Thank God. Thank God.
