Last year I wrote about the trouble we had with our toilets backing up. Several times all of our toilets backed up at the same time and consequently flooded the floor in our basement. This event caused much stress in our lives. I wound up pulling toilets and calling a plumber to snake our line when I couldn't find the blockage. Well,after this happened a couple of times, I learned that the blockage was happening right inside the septic tank where every thing enters. There is a "T" that just decides to block and when that happens, everything blocks up. Every flush, every, drain of the wash, every sink, fills up the sewer line and it has no where to go except up through the floor drain in the basement.
Anyway, this happened again last night. Someone had to go to the potty and someone said, "That one's clogged!" Then I hear, "That ones clogged, too!" My wife looked at me and reminded me that last time both potties were clogged mayhem ensued. I immediately ran out to the septic tank and grabbed a long metal pipe. After I got the lid off, I was able to unclog the pipe and watch all that water and "stuff" come flowing into the tank. But not until the basement floor flooded. I had to clean that up and do some laundry.
On the bright side, if there is a bright side, I didn't have to pull the toilet and I didn't have to call a plumber to fix this fresh heck.
Such is life.
