Synergy Onsite Septic Solutions
The case of the disappearing pipe in Southwest Austin! It was a rainy and brisk fourth degrees outside. As we responded to a call saying, “we smell septic outside all the time and liquid running down our back yard”! At arrival what we found was a bone dry pump tank and a primary tank at the correct level; with both inlet and outlet baffles connected. But a river of septic bleeding out the side where the tank to pipe should be! So as we exposed the tanks sides we discovered the pipe that connected the two tanks was gone! What happened is the PVC was not glued properly and consumed by surrounding Cedars and Cacti. Working our way on this decline of a worksite as well as event, we found the mysterious pipe! Still unusable so we re-plumbed and moved on!
