    I got a real kick out of your piece, funny but true.

    I have certainly seen many of these defects myself. I did not know the pipe size was a cause for the waste paper basket next to the toilet.


    Out in the countryside, the septic tanks are much smaller than we are used to in the states. Putting the paper in a basket and burning it instead of putting it in the septic tank makes the septic tank last much longer before it has to be pumped out since the tank only has to degrade the waste and not the paper also. Some toilet paper isn’t very biodegradable either and it takes a long time to break down.



    Your rule dude! Think I am going to cut and paste your points for up over my desk at work. With all my house planning your points simply say “keep it simple Tom!”
