Video illustrating the bizarre posture and the incident: https://youtu.be/A9ed5C39riE
Around 6 in the evening on 1989 February 28, in Miyakoji village Tamura district, Japan, a 23-year-old elementary school teacher just ended her day. It was winter and the weather was piercingly cold. The teacher briskly walked back to her dormitory not far away from the school. She stayed in a single room and there’s an attached toilet in each room.
The building back then was not well developed especially in a mountain village.
The toilet was a squatting toilet. Right underneath the squat pan was the septic tank. The septic tank was an U-shape pipe where one end is linked to the squatting pan, and the other is the sewage outlet. The sewage outlet was located outdoors. Every once in a while, someone would manually open the lid and empty the septic tank.
That night when using the toilet, the teacher casually looked into the pit and noticed a shoe. She was perturbed and ran outside to open the septic lid. To the shock of her life, she saw a human leg in the waste. Startled, she screamed and ran to call her principal and colleagues. One of her colleagues informed the Police.
The body was bent up with hands crossed over his chest hugging a neatly folded shirt (refer to video above for reference). He was lying on his back with face looking up into the toilet pan hole. It's sort of like peeping a woman going to the toilet. He was topless and barefoot.
The body was thoroughly cleaned twice before the autopsy could be performed. Soon after the cleaning the man was identified. He was Naoyuki Kanno. A 26 year old young promising man well-known in the village.
Naoyuki had been missing on February 24th and found dead on the 28th in a septic pipe of the female teacher’s dormitory. According to the forensics, Naoyuki was believed to have died on the 26th.
Other than some minor scratches on the elbow and knee, there was no noticeable trauma and signs of homicide. Police concluded and closed the case as an accidental death, which is Naoyuki Kanno was trying to peep women and died from hypothermia.
Naoyuki ’s father and the villagers were outraged by such conclusion. Simply because everyone knew Naoyuki. Naoyuki was best known as a reliable and sociable person, a sales manager of a company supporting the Nuclear Power Plants. The villagers knew him well enough to know that it is totally impossible to associate him as a perverted voye... keep reading on reddit ➡
Cause I want to pump the shit out of you.
We have recently bought a house. We have no records of where the septic tank is located on the property. The property is less than an acre. I do believe it needs pumped but I am not sure. We are 1st time home owners. Any information about a septic tank would be helpful. Thank you
Does anyone have a recommendation for septic tank replacement as well as septic field extension? I've reached out to three different companies and none of them have responded. I'm getting really annoyed so I'd love a recommendation for someone who is actually in business. My septic tank is leaking something terrible in my back yard so it needs to be done soon.
I closed on my house in November and haven't had any major issues. When I was looking at this house, my realtor told me that the house was on "community well and community septic" and that the HOA fee covered the "community water and community sewer".
Additionally the owners disclosure and buy sell agreement have all of the septic tank sections marked "N/A Community septic".
This would all be well and good, except a previous owner of my house (for 20 years) showed up on my doorstep looking for long lost property in an attic and told me a lot of things about the house. The most important thing he told me was where my septic tank was. He showed me that I DO NOT have a community septic system and I have a private tank and drain field in my back yard. The tank is completely buried but after he showed me it's easy to identify the access ports.
So I obviously want to get the system inspected and pumped. But my question is, do I have any legal recourse? I'd like to just send the bills to my realtor and tell her to pay for this inspection, but I'm not sure that will work out. Has anyone heard of anything like this happening? If the inspection turns up nothing, it's probably not worth fighting over, but if the inspection uncovers major issues what should I be doing?
I am on the process of excavating for a flagstone/gravel patio for a hot tub. The hot tub will not end up over this object. I found it about 6-8 inches below the surface, about where I planned to excavate to.
I found the clean out first. About four inches lower I found a concrete box roughly four feet wide, still not sure on length.
Can I just throw the weed barrier over this, then put my gravel/sand/stone down? I was going to cover the clean out with a hollow fiberglass rock, but now I am wondering if I should just cover it all together.
House was built in 47. It is in an established suburb of Detroit that is full of post war houses. The house is currently on city water and sewer and likely has been for decades.
Just wondering, my brother had his trailer septic tank back up into the yard badly because of a broken sewege line. It was a small lake of sewage, very gross.
The landlord had a guy out there who dug up the pipe and replaced it, but did nothing to the soil around the tank and left it there. Its been a few months and he still hasnt done anything regarding the soil.
Is this okay? Should we be trying to get it cleaned or will nature run its course?
My husband and I are looking at houses and there's one we really like, except it has a septic tank. Neither of us have any experience with one. He insists that it will be totally fine as long as we have it pumped every year. When I research it, septic tanks seem far more tedious and annoying to live with. What I'm reading is that we need to use different soaps for everything, can only do 1 load of laundry per day, and have to take super short showers. Also that it gets backed up after rainstorms?? He says that I'm just being crazy and trying to cause problems. How does having a septic tank change your day to day life if at all? Thanks!
We have owned this house for less than 1 year so this is our first spring. House is on septic. Twice this spring we have had moderate rain for a few days and ended up with our septic tank flooded with rain water and it backs up through our main drain.
We had the septic inspected less than 1 year ago and everything was okay. Had main drain snaked during the first flooding and no blockage. Had our septic guy come out during the first flood and he said he has seen this in our area due this year to a cold winter (frozen ground) and heavy rains resulting in a high water table and poor drainage and not much we can do.
We said okay and moved on. A few weeks later we end up with the same issue. Moderate rain for a day and septic fills up and backs up into main drain again. We haven’t had freezing temperatures in a few weeks and it wasn’t a heavy rain.
The previous owners have 2 French drains installed around the house. The yard is graded appropriately to drain water away from our house.
This is not our first house we have owned with a septic and previously have had 0 issues. Our septic guy suggested a secondary tank for rainwater overflow but obviously will be $$$$. We haven’t gotten any other opinions yet.
Anybody have any experience with septics and can provide any help? Our next step was trying to amend the soil around the laterals with aeration and try to get denser grass to help with soil compaction to help speed up the drainage process but I know can only help so much.
Wasn’t sure if this was the best place to ask but hoping someone can help! Not necessarily something I would do myself but wasn’t sure if anyone else has had a similar experience.
I live in a three bed semi which is quite rural, we have a shared septic tank with our neighbour which is on their land. The system is in disrepair as it not been properly maintained and is about 40 years old. We only bought our house last year.
My neighbour is quite problematic and not a very nice person, likes to dispute the smallest thing. Most likely the tank/system will need replacing and instead of sharing the cost and still sharing the septic tank I find that this is a perfect opportunity for me to have our own septic tank system installed.
We have quite big gardens but I’m not sure the distance the tank has to be away from the house and where the drainage field would do. I’ve looked at options for both overground and underground tanks, wouldn’t need a massive tank as it would only be 1 house draining into it. What sort of cost would I like looking at to have this done?
Thanks in advance.
My neighbors are good people but have royally pissed me off. When we moved here a couple years ago we noticed when it rained our yard stinks, so we got some folks out here to pump the septic tank. It rains a lot here around this time, and apparently it’s doing it again. Our neighbor, who we have spoken to several times in the past few weeks has failed to mention he got the state involved and is planning to sue us for damaging the dirt road by our house where the septic tank is flooding. (The road is also dirt and was a damaged/bad road when we moved here) It only floods like this when it rains, and we weren’t really aware of it because it hasn’t smelled and I walk my dog around my house multiple times a day and it’s not muddy, or gross. He has posted pictures on Facebook and has told numerous people that they are sending us a letter and having our water and electricity cut off and taking whatever legal action he can. Is this a legit reason to sue someone or do we have some higher ground benefit? We are more than happy to fix it if it’s fixable but so far have done what we know to do. I live in Mississippi in the county so it’s not a city septic tank it’s a private one.
Hello!! I have a quick question if anyone can help answer it please. My mother is moving to the big island and the house she's looking at seems to be using septic tank instead of the regular public sewer line we have here in California. Is it a common thing in Hawaii? What's the average cost for maintenance it and is there a reason why people use septic tank and not directly hook up with the city sewer line? If we want to make a change from septic to sewer, what is the average cost for it? TIA!
Hello! I just want to ask if how will I design/size the septic tank if I only have a total fixture units? Should I directly multiply it to the detention time to get the volume or not? Thank you very much.
That isn't from the grotesque clay models?
