Septic Questions - Ran over cap with mower
I'm new to septic systems and have a few questions.
What I have:
3,000 SQFT House
1 green pipe with green cement cap
2 white PVC pipes with white cap
The white pipe furthest from the house was run over with the riding lawn mower resulting in a vaporized cap and a few pieces missing from the top 2" of the pipe.
What cap do I check to determine if it needs to be pumped?
What do I look for to know if it's time to pump?
What are each of the pipe/caps for?
How should I repair the mowed pipe/cap? (Air tight?, tight/loose fitting cap?, ...)
Is there a good "Septic for Dummies" resource I should look at?
Thanks in advance for your help, this forum rocks.
