The Murphy Family, all 7 of us — hey, we’re Catholic — has to watch every flush this holiday season as we’ve been told our septic tank pump and compressor are blown. We Murphys are used to being told we’re full of crap, but this is a new low.
The rough estimate is $1300 for all the repairs, but that didn’t include the new sprinkler heads. (In case you’re not from the country, that’s how they, umm, let out the filtered “water” from the tank. Needless to say, if we invite you to our house for a sprinkler party, politely decline.) So I’ve set the goal of this fundraiser at $1500.
