I grew up in the city with city water and plumbing.
When I flushed the toilet or ran the faucet, water was coming from the street. All of the sewage and waste was going down into the gutters and to the water treatment plant. When I bought a small condo in the country, I was not prepared for the plumbing problems that would occur. I had a septic tank, well, and water pump, and anytime there were problems with the septic I had to call a plumbing supplier. Thankfully my sibling works as a full-time plumber and he has certainly saved me thousands of dollars since I bought this crib. One of the largest complications turned out to be an issue with the sewage pipe. It was a problem nearly 25 feet from our home and I helped my sibling dig up the yard so both of us could find the blockage. It turned out to be a bunch of sludge and baby diapers causing the issue. We didn’t have a baby in the house, so both of us knew that the diapers were there from the previous homeowner. I have never seen such a disgusting mess in my life and I was so very thankful to have my sibling there to help. A professional plumbing company would have certainly charged me $1,500 or more for the same exact job that my sibling and I completed together. I wish I had another sibling that was a car mechanic as I have some repairs that need to be completed and I know it’s going to cost $1,250 or more. It would be fantastic to have someone in the family that could help with vehicles.
