Plumbing Issues

So in the middle of January one night Kory ran to the basement to grab some ice cream. He came back up the stair's not a very happy man. We had a water leak! Really we're just so very thankful that he discovered the leak and soggy packing boxes before the basement flooded!

We thought that with the numerous day's in a row that were below freezing temperatures that maybe the pipes had frozen or the leech lines. To make sure we didn't end up with a flooded basement he shut the water off with the intention's of working on it the following day. The kids and I got to go the whole next day without running water. We survived the inconvenience and was hopefull that it would only be the one day. No such luck! Kory called our landlords and explained the situation to them.  They thought that maybe the septic tank was full and needed pumped. So on day 2 Kory took some time off work, borrowed a mini excavator and tried to find the septic tank. After digging around in the area our landlord thought it was in but was still unsuccesfull he decided to move to the other side of the white picnic fence.  He found  a random water line and broke the pvc pipe. We had a mini geiser! After the water cleared and a little more digging accomplished the missing septic tank was found. It wasn't full to the top but it was in need of emptying so we found someone who could do that on day 3. The septic tank is now empty and the broken water line is fixed. We turned the water back on to discover that the pipes still leaked but only when the water was running like the flushing of a toilet or a faucet that was turned on. So Kory left the water on for us but we just couldn't use it.

Day 4 Kory took some more time off work to work on our plumbing issue. He finally discovered that the inlet pump going into the septic tank had broken off. Meaning some of the flow could get in but not very much. Unfortunatley we couldn'd find anyone in town that had the needed parts. So day 5 we  got someone to bring us the parts from the "city" and not only had running water again but usable running water. Hip Hip Hooray!!! I got just what I wanted for my birthday that day. A SHOWER in my own home!!! I was a long week to say the least.
