Hey /diy/, I am perhaps a dumbass. I'm at peace with that fact, but I still need some advice.
I'm renting a small house with a septic system, and my waste water is no longer draining well. My landlord failed to mention that the house was not on the sewer grid (and I failed to ask), so I did the unthinkable: I flushed maybe 5 baby wipes, certainly no more than 10.
The house seems to actually be downhill from the tank, and my circuit breaker box has a switch labeled "Pump: NEVER TURN OFF" so I am assuming this is for the sewage.

You're not supposed to flush that shit down the toilet anyway. Pay someone to snake the line out, not pump out the septic tank. No idea what you're talking about with a pump.. unless there's a sump pump somewhere. You sure you know what a septic tank is?
>>986377 I'm asking for advice because I have very little knowledge of septic systems.
There is (what I believe to be) a recessed pump with a cover outside the house, next to the bathroom. I assume this is a sump pump, but again, I don't know.
Does a standard sump pump have a filter that would catch wipes? I might go buy one of those snake auger things if a pump would normally catch something like a wipe. Amusing the pump outside is what I think it is, there cant be more than 15 feet of pipe between... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
There are numerous variations on septic system design. Without knowing the setup, it's difficult to tell what might be the problem or where to start looking.
My pump system has a pump downstream of the septic tank, pumping the septic tank effluent UP to a drain field on higher ground. But your system might be different, having a sewage sump and pump to push raw sewage (including solids) uphill to the tank. If you have this, it is... Comment too long.

I'm considering getting a magnet implant in my finger (either ring or pinky finger) however I'm not sure if a) it's worth it price wise and b) if I'd actually get much benefit from it. Pic kinda related, also general biotech thread.
>>984809 The magnets are weak enough that the one wouldn't effect my phone/computer building/bass playing nor would it wipe a credit card however I would be able to have small pieces of metal i.e. A bottle cap or paper clip stick to me
Would there be a practical benefit to using sta-bil to treat gas for a mower during the summer time?
It's usually a few weeks between mowings, depending on the weather. Last year it was a real pain in the rear to get and keep going. Took it apart multiple times to check to see if it was the carburetor.
Slightly unrelated: Anyone converted one to run off propane? I tried before but I probably need to use a regulator before the valves. And now with gas being cheaper, I don't know if it would be cost effective. Though having the darn... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>983418 Shitty mowers are a pain to keep running in general. Back when I was poor I would just buy already running ones for the lowest possible price every few years from estate sales and shit. We're talking $20 for old whatever branded stuff. Eventually I picked up a used Snapper from back before they got bought out and that thing just runs and runs and runs.
You wouldn't want to put stabil in the mower but the gas. If you want a mower that starts but something with a Honda engine. They last forever. The real bitches to start are the tiny two cycle engines on weed eaters and blowers. I bought4 cycle commercial troybilts and have been happy with that for about 5 years now. If it gets hard to start they offer a multi use electric starter for them too. There might be a push mower with something similar.
For the price of stability, I put it in every time I fill my 2-1/2 gallon can. Use that can for mower, snowblower and for chainsaw/trimmer mix. Always know there is stability in the gas so whenever the mowing or blowing season ends there is stability in the tank.
Just got my first vehicle, a used '09 Tacoma I4 with a manual. Only 50k miles. What tools should I carry around in the thing in case it breaks down? They have got to fit inside the cab, behind the seats.
What I've got so far:
Long jumper cables Good bottle jack Fire extinguisher Lug nut socket long breaker bar Combo wrench for battery terminals Combo wrench for battery hold down Adjustable wrench just in case Some ratchet straps, one of which is very large First aid kit A few gallons of water
okay guys, i need helping spray painting a custom skateboard with the image posted but im new to spray painting and wanted to know if primer is necessary before spraying on the deck. its a plain wood grain deck and i was going to spray it matt white and draw the graphic on with sharpie THEN spray over with a clear coat of lacquer. any tips are also greatly appreciated
So, I basically know nothing on this matter and I figured I'm come here for help because I'm sure every single person here is more knowledgeable on the subject.
My wall mounted phone jack got cracked, shattered really, and I'm unable to use it in its present state to connect my router. So I decided to nigger rig it the only way I'm capable of, scotch tape. I don't want to put it back in its casing and screw it back into the wall before asking someone about this. Is this a good idea for a temporary fix, or am I running the risk of burning my house...
