We got a new septic tank last week! It has been crazy around here lately, what we fencing and horse stalls being built, and pigpens being winterized, and now this...
When we had our septic tank pumped out last spring, we discovered it was pretty much crap. Bahahaha, sorry. It was on its last legs. So we got a new tank before winter set in. First they moved our entire front deck, which I couldn't bear to watch. Then, after taking out the old tank, they dug an ENORMOUS hole
That patch of front lawn won't be looking good anytime soon.
There were lots of heavy vehicles coming back and forth. And when the hole was all ready, this truck came...
And there's the new concrete tank!
It was fun watching it being lifted into the hole!
When the tank was all buried, they lifted the deck back into place. I could hardly watch! But now it's all done and we can rest easy. The last tank was about 60 years old, so we may not outlive this one.
And these two should be arriving next week:
Girl pony and boy pony! Our newest OSPCA adoptions. I'll let you know when they arrive.
