Have Crows Ever Pecked Holes In Your Sewer Hose?
There are a lot of crows where I've been for the last year, and for some reason there seems to be something they want that's inside my sewer hose. Maybe they hear bugs crawling around, I don't know.
They perforated my old one a couple months ago, and I tried duct tape for a temporary fix. Looked awful but cost nothing. I bought a shiny new hose last week and installed it. Dumped the tanks a few days later, and guess what. Another hole.
So today I bought a new stretch of hose and replaced the remaining old hose with the new. I cut off the damaged section of the other section and repaired it. I have to use two sections, since it's a long way to the sewer hookup -- 20 feet, more or less.
I put on my thinking cap and came up with a way to crow-proof my sewer lines. Went to Home Depot and bought two 10 foot lengths of 4 inch flexible black drain pipe. I was able to snake my sewer hose through the 4 inch pipe, but had to remove the end fittings in order to make it work. I reattached the fittings and got it all hooked up.
Looks Great! No more croworries, and it's also now protected against someone (me) stepping on it and bending the coils.
I see a crow outside right now. Hope he's pissed! But actually he's lucky. If I were in a more isolated location, my pellet rifle would've been put to use.
