These are basically the same thing. Expect for the fact that from antiquity they were called cesspools and in the late 1880’s they were reinvented as septic tanks.
We also know that pumps and hydraulics have an ancient history.
Luckily, my village is on mains plumbing but we still, sometimes, have to “shovel shit.”
Last week I came across a cesspool of a commenter. I’d commented. She commented – “you are kidding me”
I commented back with a true story about war conditions.
Several comments later, she played her hand. Having NOT ONCE answered a single question of mine.
So, you are actually saying that I AM RIGHT, then? She Said.
I cleaned that cesspool with a delete and a ban forever button.
What a total waste of energy. What a total pit of cess.
DRAIN THE SWAMP.
And think again about modern plumbing in old buildings ? ? ?
