No more roller cover washing! And no more standing in the shower for 30min. Still what is the science? Bacteria in the leach field died? I remain partially ignorant.

its probably not that bacteria died

probably more like>>> your tank hadnt been pumped for some time, the thick stuff went out into your field, compound that with soil that might have poor drainage to begin with

and you need a new field.

it wont absorb any more grey water if its filled with sludge.

dont use additives, its a scam, theres no shortage of bacteria in your tank.

lots of good sh!t offered here.

Many factors involved with a septic system. The tank (if you have one) and the leaching field are two separate components that must work well together.

The solids, as mentioned, settle and decompose and then flow out into the leaching field. If your leaching field is not working due to ground saturation or does not "leach" (cooking oils and other containments, like paint can cause this) then you will experience a distinct aroma. If your leaching field is contaminated and does not leach, the fix will cost in the range of $20,000.

If your toilets are baking up, you should pray that it is only the tank that is filled and needs to be pumped. I am surprised when people who say, "we haven't had ours pumped for 10 years and we never have had a problem". My parents said that one time when I asked them about theirs. Literally the next day toilets would not flush. Being on Duxbury Bay, it cost them a sh!t load more than $20,000 to dig and install a whole new system away from the water.

When you wait too long to pump out a tank, it can and will destroy your leaching field. The $149 +/- to pump out a tank every two years is worth every penny.

And yes, bleach does kill the sh!t eating bacteria. Paint just screws up EVERYTHING.

Take care of your septic system and it will take care of your sh!t.

i dug my first septic system/leach field by hand as a kid.

laid the clay drain tile too.

google hillbilly septic systems, youll see how "resourceful" people have dealt with this expensive project.

i woulnt dare drink the water from my workers house,,,,,,i saw how he built his hilbilly septic system, and he has a shallow well.

that is disgusting.

i can see why neighbors wouldnt like the idea of cutting corners.

i paid $2000 for a new septic system, tank, and field.

i was quoted $8,000 on another field that required a raised field due to the clay and high water table.

if you are in desperate need, and are low on cash,,,you CAN take on this project yourself, and have a safe system.

We have a slop sink in our mudroom which is where I am supposed to clean brushes. Sometimes I sneak them in and clean them in the pedestal sink in the bathroom and then shake them out in the tub just to see if my mom will notice.

Wait a minute, isn't there a slop sink down there in the basement? Next to your room? Your momma would NEVER know !
