Theres a couple of methods weve used.

One is to take the loo brush or a small mop, wrap a large plastic bag around the head .. make sure its gonna stay there - and use it like a plunger.  Works wonders.

UMM Is that using a tuna like in the old days when we put an eel down a blocked drain?

I'd settle for a eel, Tuna too big splashy. Where do I get a eel on a Sunday?

Orrrrr - you stick a toilet roll on the stick end of the unger and use that to absorb the excess water - then find a way to use the plunger with bag at the same time that you dump another gi normous load of water down it  ::)

Takes me back Nits to when we ran a Camp in Darwin - the septics hadnt been emptied for 7 years and the dude who owns the camp is in Thailand with his wife for a holiday and we have NO way of getting hold of him.  We call out the septic drainage people .. he looks in the tanks, sticks his hose in and says NOPE - the top 5 - 6 feet of that is set like concrete (3 tanks - i dunno how big - but they big - they sit out in the hot sun 24/7 with a heavy concrete lid - the sun had been setting the top for 7 years!!!)  Theres only one way to fix that - he says - run water into it for 24 hours and start breaking it up with a pole - I'll be back in a week  :o

MrL worked in/on it for the week - and all is fine - sucker man comes out again Yep he says - now youll need a back hoe and a sealed tray truck  ???  So we organise for them - the bloody truck they bring is bout the size of a ute with flip up sides  ;D  LOVELY!!  They loaded it into the truck and carted it out of the camp into the scrub.

I was mortified - running along behind the truck hosing it all away (http://www.smfboards.com/Smileys//smf/tickedoff.gif)

LOL if that happened nowadays there would be shit to pay!!!

Those were the days. We used to be able to see the growth on the paddocks where the sludge was emptied. Cockies have lost a cheap source of ferts since detergents and disinfectants found their way into the system.

It has to be carried back to the town treatment now.


Ours is OK at last  ... (I used that handy sensor tool we carry on the end of our arms,) once I could tell what it was, removal was easy... Guess what it was?

Hint:


I'm having it's mother or father (or a sibling) for tea

Nar - a tuna bomb is like a great big daddy of a fire-cracker - something inbwteen a stick of TNT and a big Tomthumb.

It would be sure to solve the problem!

 The blocker was was a paua shell.  Empty.

The guys here had been out to the island and kids musta been playing with the shell.. I THINK it was a takeable size, so I don't think the guys were trying to hide the evidence.   

I had it's rellie for tea last night.

All's well that ends well.

Memories of snakes in dunny's
Is auntie at bush camp comming out of long drop with bloomers arround ankles yelling "SNAKE"
which had it's slumber disturbed and stuck it's head out from under the seat to see what was going on......the dunny was on a jetty out over the floodswamp a bit and planking rikerty so almost to the dry she did a back flop ............cant get the sight of her laying there, pants around 1 leg and vaving her legs about yelling "SNAKE" at the top of her lungs,out of my mind. .......................Could'nt find the snake either so we surmised it fell in with fright and drowned........
