Re: Cast Iron pipe and strange clay thingy --what is it?

I'm still digging..and now the trench is about 10 feet long. The only thing out of the ordinary I have found is a Lizard, and some
very shiny bright blue pottery fragments.

Re: Cast Iron pipe and strange clay thingy --what is it?

Hi Shag and Tom & Jada... I think it probably is an old septic
Line. I have spoken with neighbors and they tell me there is a " Cistern"
Under there somewhere. I have dug about a 7 ft trench so far and I

Re: Old Sink -- Standard Faucet? Need opinions

Just saw this post..I have an faucet like that Art Deco one in the bottom of my cold bunker in my old Dairy shed. Looks to
be solid brass. If i can bear to get down in the bunker I will pull it out and clean it up. Funny what people discard.

So I am not sure if the original owners of the house had much money and would have known about weeping tile. I spoke with a descendent of the original owners but one. She says the family...
