How many peole thought “human aste” was about liberals?
cesspools... that is old school..
SAVING this one!
The very first thing I think of when the possibility of power outages arrives is to fill the bathtubs and use a plastic bag to seal the drain plug so the water doesn't seap out. BTW, it takes less than a gallon of water to flush the toilet by pouring fast into the bowl, then slowly pour another pint into the flushed bowl, to leave water sealign the gass from coming into the house via the toilet pipes. When I've had to do this before, I always leave the tank full and flush via direct pour.
Funny that this came up. We have a 40 foot sailboat with a holding tank. I hate that thing. I have actually been looking at a couple of different compost toilets for the boat. The Natures head and the c-Head.
Maybe, but no pumping. Works just fine, maintenance free.....I do toss in a bottle of some cesspool treatment stuff once a year for insurance.................
Just don’t let the kids swim in it.
“cesspools... that is old school..”
My aunt’s homne in Carlsbad CA is on cesspools, and it’s a 3/4 million dollar home in the city limits.
The only sewer line on the street is a high pressure line going to the sewage treatment facility.
The ground won’t take a perk test and therefore can’t put in leach lines.
Mebbe we be talking about two different things. The Hawaii cesspool is a concrete vault buried well down. No one gets into it without major excavation. Never know it is there or where it is.
You thinking of something else?
mental image was an open pit next to the hot volcanic lava
Septic tank can be your friend, pays to keep it ‘clean’.
Ding ding ding! We have a winner! Thanks for the laugh.
that’s why the new euphemism for “going number two” is ‘Casting a vote for Obama’.
Ping for later
