    So, this had one lid with no divider and evidently no transfer box. I didn't get there in time to see it myself. My brother said it was a concrete septic tank and the terra cotta tee and pipe were OK. When they told me this on the phone I told them to cover it up. I wasn't about to get in it. The tank was in good condition. If need be I will be on here finding out how to properly run a leech field.


    I don't have a clue what kind of lines are run.

    Did they tell you if the liquid level was above the outlet T before they pumped it? If it was then it's likely the drainfield is plugged. I've had success in jetting old tile drainfields. You have to be carefull though as oftentimes they are settled allowing a place for your jetter to bury itself in the dirt. Sometimes simply getting all the sludge out of the line will allow it to work.

    I've also been using Aftershock to rejuvenate abused drainfields and drywells. I've only done a couple of them but so far, so good.

    It was up against the lid. My brother thought he saw about 2' thick of turds. He also said that where the door was really dense and the guy had to stab it through to try and break it up. Where is a good place to get that Aftershock?
