I've just spent two unhealthy weeks searching for hidden pipework in our garden, the result of a blocked loo, only to find buried beneath the concrete floor of the downstairs lavatory a never previously emptied tank. As we moved here fifteen years ago, and the toilet was probably installed no later than the early eighties, when the house was a bar, I did consider calling in a team of archeologists rather than a bloke to empty it. Certainly Howard Carter had an easier time locating Tutankhamun's tomb than I did working out the logic of this curious approach to sanitary engineering. That's Showbiz.
