    I hate when that happens...I was doing a renovation once where the h/o failed to mention that he had just filled in the swimming pool w/ all loose fill and didn't finish pumping out the water or remove the liner before doing so...wasn't a good day.

    I had a similar experience.

    I was tearing down a house in a rural area. I asked where the septic tank was and they told me that it is on a sewer. I was driving around back of the house and guess what I found! Yep, the OLD septic tank collapsed underneath me. I got the loader stuck pretty bad but the smell was the worse.

    "Slow & Sloppy" strikes again. Sorry, but I just couldn't resist pointing out the obvious lack of quality by a competing outfit.

    there was NO compaction with the back fill. but that really doesnt matter, the water needed to drain from that area, not collect. the dirt we have acts just lake a sponge, when it dry forget about digging, if its wet, its like quicksand...compaction helps a little but not much....
