septic tank back-up?
i noticed a really awful smell when i went down to the basement today. quick investigation revealed that the bathroom down there was flooded. the sink, toilet and tub had black water in them too. does this mean my septic backed up? the septic alarm did not go off.
the septic tank was pumped a month ago or so. my uncle said that it is possible that the septic float (?) could have been messed up during the pump process. Does this sound right? we've never had a problem with the septic before. there are no running toilets or anything.
i'll be calling the septic company tomorrow morning. i'm sure they'll say it's not their fault. how can i prove it is IF it is?
