So now my front yard looks like an artillery range and my drains are all exposed to the view of every passer-by. How embarrassment.
The hunt for the tanks and the pipes was interesting though. While the plumber and his apprentice wandered around the yard, several of the neighbours stopped to say where they thought everything might be. Is it kind of weird that random strangers think they know where your sewage lies?
Anyway, WHY DON'T PEOPLE LEAVE SOME KIND OF INFORMATION ABOUT THIS STUFF? You would think it would save a lot of time (and therefore, money) to have plumbers able to go straight to the part of the yard that might need digging up.
AND -- it looks like there is drainage under the paved driveway, which will need to be dug up as well.
** NOTE TO SELF --plan the drainage well if we ever get the chance to build...
