Should I Clean Out Your Septic Tank Too?

After a storm: Could you check my house and make sure the trees / pool / deck furniture are ok? Could you go inside and be sure the pipes didn't freeze/the heat or ac is on? 

During the week: Could you take in my packages/newspapers/mail? I only come out on weekends. 

Any day: Could you accept a delivery for me at your house and bring it to mine? Could you let the plumber/ painter/housekeeper /electrician in? If you see my loose dog running around, I'm out to dinner/lunch/shopping, so could you grab him/her, put on a leash and bring him home/keep him/her at YOUR house until I get home?


Yes, we live here year-round. Yes, we are friendly with all our neighbors. And we don't mind doing things for our CLOSE friends or in an emergency ... but we are NOT your unpaid house-watchers. 

There are a lot of folks who DO that for a living out here BECAUSE there are so many weekenders/vacationers/summer folks ... so FIND one and PAY them to be sure your stuff is done. I HAVE a job and a family and a house to take care of and YOU are  NOT part of that trio!

  1. I live in upstate NY (no , not westchester, Dutchess, Rockland, Upstate. I was a stay at home mom. This was the norm for me from every single working mother, while they mocked me for staying home. Some times rude knows no boundaries--maybe that is the point? The rude HAVE no boundaries and spew all over the rest of us.

  2. The septic tank is one of the most important systems of your home; therefore, it is important to pump it regularly. It is better to get the septic tank pumped as they get blocked with the waste products when accumulated for a long period of time.
