I would like to commend Brownie's Wastewater Solutions (of Orlando) for saving the day this past weekend! All 6 of my toilets had stopped working on Saturday, so I called for service. They informed me they could be out Sunday morning...not a moment too soon since I woke up to sewage lying in the bottom of all showers. In the meantime, I was preparing for a baby shower that I was putting on for my daughter-in-law. 2 trucks showed up Sunday at 10:00 AM, and the 2 men worked feverishly to get me up and running again in time for the guests to arrive. Turns out I was a year behind on having my septic tanks cleaned out, as well as having a burned out pump and alarm! Let this be a lesson to all who rely on septic for plumbing...get it done once every 3 years! ;-)
