Outside of work, Al enjoys spending time with his wife and children and grandchildren. He likes spending time at the beach, walking, biking, and kayaking.
One of the memorable stories from his septic experience is a family in a fairly new, two-year old home. The family consisted of a couple with two children. The septic system had failed in a short amount of time. Why? The culprit was antibacterial soap. The Dad was a doctor and used a large amount of antibacterial soap in the home and the Mom flushed a good deal of hair coloring chemicals down the drain. Both contributed to the failure.
A funny story he remembers:
“Several years ago, Beth, one of my eight daughters was working with me digging up a septic tank for a title 5 inspection. This was her lucky summer of high school working with Dad. I was digging up the d-box while she was digging up the tank. She opened the cover to the tank and me, with my back to her, heard a noise. She was gagging at the odor emanating from the tank. We both had quite a laugh about that. She toughed it out and continued working on the other cover! Many laughs over the years reminiscing about that odorous summer. ”
Al is pleased to be an integral part of the team. Stay tuned to meet more members of the Septic Preservation team.
