It's a dirty job but somebody has to do it :)

Measuring the level of "sludge".  Gross!
Home maintenance isn't always enjoyable or even satisfying.  Spending an hour draining a water heater or vacuuming refrigerator coils is a necessary chore but when you're finished, no one can tell that you did anything at all.  The same is true with caring for a septic system (if you happen to live in the country, which we do).  The only sign of activity is a bare spot of dirt where you dug up the cover of the tank.   But I guess that's good.  Who wants to see someone's septic tank or drain field or worse yet, smell it!?!?!?!

Regardless, it has to be done every three years and that's what I spent an afternoon doing.  I'm thankful it wasn't raining! 

Covering up the evidence  :)
