    I have heard the just the slats are enough to keep the cattle in. Some times they just paint
    the lines and works.

    I can't tell for sure from the image but it looks like you would need to extend the casing up
    if you want use it. It is too low and will allow ground to enter. Here casings are required to
    be 1 foot a...

    It looks correct if it is actually wired like that. The fact that it rings front at both
    buttons seems to indicate a short in the wires some where.What happens if you disconnect the R
    terminal at the ...

    Something is crossed in your wiring I think. Perhaps you somehow had the front and back in

    the point o...

    Leach fields are often only rated to last a certain number of years. If you start messing with
    your current setup you get it condemned and need everything new. I would just try to replace
    the damaged ...

    It will give room for more solids before they digest. The solid "stuff" you flush does not
    liquify instantly. It takes time to digest into liquid.
