Look if that Rat got in here via the toilet, it can leave the same way.
Septic pumps have a macerator too. I ruined one with bubblegum when I was a kid. After that it was made very clear to me to spit used gum into the trash, not the toilet.
Because since Reagan, we’ve been in a downward spiral of deregulation.
Not that great, rugged individual, that’s for damn sure!
I’m surprised if there hasn’t been or isn’t some sort of class action. We have a grinder pump (sewage ejector) and the warning light went off about two years before I’d have expected. It had, indeed, worn out early and the pit (or whatever) in which it sits/works was about two flushes away from flooding our basement floor. (We were just lucky we caught it when we did; several of our neighbors have had mishaps, though.) The technician found a big ball of flushable(*) wipes that had coalesced into a rough sphere, about the size of a beach ball, over the years (i.e. raising two kids). The wipeball would float on top which meant that the water level inside never reached as high as it was supoosed to, meaning the pump ran more often, and wore out early.
I should’ve let the bad experience with flushable(*) cat litter be my guide, about 25 years earlier.
Once again…here’s how most of the world does it.
