Hi" Jack, Its got nothing to do with problem, but
it brought back memories....
When I was a kid I got a job as a carpenter mate,
we had to do some repairs to old cottage way out
in the country and it was a hot summers day in England
Well, the old plumber we had with us had to do some
work on the septic tank, but could not find it,the
owner had said you will find it in the garden.
So the plumber started to walk around the garden, but
could not find it, so some one said try jumping on the
ground, and when the sound is different you will know
you have found it.
We all were all looking at this old plumber jumping up and
down in the garden hopping around, then suddenly he vanished
all you could see was his head in the grass, he had found the tank
we got him out and "boy"did he stink..we had to hose him down, but
the stink was still there.
Going home he sat in the back of the pickup naked all but for old coat
and for weeks we could still smell him... so dont go hopping around
the garden looking for septic tanks...
