As a septic company we get lots of really strange calls but this morning in came one that left us all laughing. The call was from a realtor who is anxious to finalize the sale on a house. We had previously preformed a septic inspection on this property and we failed the septic system. When we opened up the septic tank and it was almost empty. This means that the waste is obviously leaking out and a septic tank is supposed to be a sealed unit. A septic tank has an operational level which to the untrained eye always looks full. Even an untrained eye saw that this tank was way below the operational level.
Well, the realtor wanted to know if we could replace the septic tank without bringing our equipment into the yard. Could we please stay on the road? The caller was dead serious.
You can't make this stuff up.
