Our home was built in 1957. We have had problems for years with having a wet drain field and keep having our septic pumped. Today (of course my husband is away), I have done a couple of loads of laundry and the water has now pushed into the shower in the laundry room. It looks like it is from the sewer because there is toilet paper with it. We just had our septic pumped last year and 2 years before that. Having a new drain field put in is going to be very expensive and I have been looking online for what to do that we can afford, and have come across septic aerator systems.
Can we put this in with our older septic system?
Another question I have is that people are saying they have two tanks; I think we only have one tank. Is this what was done years ago?
