    Geez, I read the whole thread. Quite the stories.

    I didn't know you could do anything for a clogged leach field.

    This is my first place with a septic tank (it's only 5 years old or so).
    I can second that part about being upwind from the truck.
    I was able to find the cover myself under the lawn, thankfully.
    The guy had what looked like a big weedwacker on a long stick to break stuff up in the tank.

    One of the better ones that I've seen is the pump truck with the warning on back - "Caution, May be Transporting Political Promises"

    Another is the carefully located sign I spotted on our Hawaii trip this summer - it is on Hilo at the start of the path to the area where one can see the lava flowing into the ocean - I think they are officially refering to the path, which is rough, but it applies even more to the immediate area... :sick:

    That was funny. You Should go into business on promoting non use of wipes in a septic tank. I'm still laughing.....where "did I put that orange?...hmmm" :)
