How awful, Susie and Rick...and according to jevans article, the fact that bragging neighbor is flushing paper is truly the problem-apparently the paper creates a "paper-mache sludge!" (Gag.)
" How much time does it take to clog a filtro? Nobody knows. It depends on how big the fosa septica and filtro are, how many people are using the toiliet and how much paper or other non-biodegradable stuff they’re flushing down there. It could take three years, or five, or ten. If you don’t flush any paper, it could take fifty or more"
Who do you get to fix this- is it a plumber or the generic Maya fix-it guys?
