septic system

3 posts in this topic

My septic system is not backing up, but it is also not working properly. I can see the area around the tanks has some water leaking out, at times, but the drainfield must be partially working since it is not backing up into the house. Has this happened to anyone before? Will it correct itself when the weather warms? We just bought the house last July, it is only 10 years old and it passed the inspection last summer. We are do for City sewer and water in 2-3 years so I would not like to stick money in it if I don't have to. However, if i need someone to look at it, does anyone know a reliable septic guy in the brainerd area?

Thanks,

BHS

You may just need to have it pumped out. When I lived in the country I would have to have that done every three or four years and it was this time of year. Other than that few times it always worked well.

It's most likely the frost depth this year,Your leach,drain,mound,Whatever is freezing up Have it pumped and by warm weather it should work.If that does'nt work then call in someone.Next year use leaves,straw,something to insulate it,Not so much the drain field but the pipe leading to it. And your system is backinhg up if its flooding out of the tank.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?

      These stats have a lot to do with it!  GF=138 GA=92 One of the highest and lowest in the NHL as of today that is huge.

      Thanks for the report!  How big were the walleyes?  Keepers? Care to share your tactics?  Time of day, how deep you were fishing, type of bait?  I'm new to metro walleye fishing and trying to hone my skills a bit.
