Getting your septic tank pumped out is usually a matter of digging down to the hatch, the septic truck comes out and pumps it out, and you fill in the hole again which you will not have to dig for another few years. That is if you know where the septic tank is. If you don’t know where it is, it can be a bit of a mystery. To add to the enjoyment, if there is an old tank which is no longer used and you get some misinformation about location, the fun only gets better. I dug 4 holes over a weeks time before I finally found the correct location. As you can see from the photo above, the correct spot is marked and I will be laying down some stone blocks and a bench to mark this location so I never need to work that hard again.
