Raise High the Registro, Maestro

I finally decided raise the level of the opening to the registro which was taking in way too much rain water and eventually ending up in the septic tank.  I just have a feeling that a septic tank doesn't want tons of extra water to do it's thing. It was fine until the grass started to be replaced with walkways, planters and the pool.  Now the water is 2 inches deep before it can run towards the street.

Hugo has been doing the cement work for the last few days and his girls were helping yesterday. I decided to raise a large section so no water gets trapped behind the planter Yari is sitting on.  It's about 4" high and a 6 foot by 12 foot L shape. So now let it rain which I know it will before November.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
