We had a problem with our drains backing up and had Roto Rooter come. They snaked the drain to the septic tank and the water didn't go down but they charged us $400 anyway. They said the septic need to be pumped and we had that done which cost us $275. The septic tank company said that because the tank hadn't been pumped since we moved in 12 years ago that the leaching fields were plugged up with stuff that would have stayed in the tank if we had the tank pumped like we should have. Now they want about $15,000 to install new leaching fields which we can't get together right now is there anything we can do that can give us time?
