Leachfield rejuvinates after 8 years.
Monika and I listed a Condex last week in Derry, NH and we received an offer on it after the first showing. We came to terms pretty quickly and then the appraisal was yesterday and the home inspection this morning.
When I arrived ten minutes early the buyer, seller and home inspector were there and I could see the septic inspector drilling in the back yard. The last few days have been pretty mild but overnight the temps have plummeted and he needed a drill to dig into the leach field. When he was done I was surprised to hear him tell the buyer that the leach field was in better condition than it was when he inspected it for our seller back in 1999.
I asked him how could this be?
When this unit was purchased in 1999 it was 15 years old and the leach field was in fair condition. Now 23 years old it is in good condition. A lot of it has to do with how many people use the system and how often the septic tank is pumped out.
The old saying is true. You learn something new everyday.
