Well the contractor came by...He said it would take two guys a day to clean out my 6ft by 12 ft cistern under my kitchen.
This is what they will do:
1. Shovel out solids, silt, dead animals, sundry items.
2. Pressure wash walls floor
3. Use 4hp jet pump and two inch hose to suck out water that will collect in low spot.
Verbal estimate $500 Canadian plus HST ( Harmonized sales tax)
He is emailing written estimate.
I also have a second contractor to call tomorrow.
Problem is it has to be done before the liquids freeze ( -2c this morning - 10 overnight)
More money spent, nothing exciting to show for it.
To add insult to injury this week my 17 year old washing machine died. When I told my hubby his only words were" What did
you do to break it" I said it died due to old age.
