Home Improvements

One of the wonderful things about being a home owner is home improvements.
The following pages are from one of my home improvements that I had to take the responsibility of getting taken care of. This is one of the home improvement I think all home owners dread. The failing leach bed!!

This kind of job is something that I would never try to do myself.

So....I called in the experts! Summit Excavating.

This is what is called the distribution box. This goes in the bottom of the leach bed
Part of the old bed. One can see the old bed was shot.

This pipe sits at the bottom of bed, and goes out to a chlorinator
This is the cap to the new 1k tank.
