After that, everything was back in business like normal.
I was hosting a party recently and my plumbing was a mess. Someone used the bathroom and flushed. Minutes later water started coming into my hallway from the toilet. My shower had dirty water in it. It was so gross and embarrassing. Thankfully my brother was at the party and helped me look into the plumbing issue. I thought maybe it might have been an issue with my drain line. My brother and I went out into the yard and there was no standing water. There was no stinky smell indicating there was something wrong with the septic tank. I then tried plunging the water down the drains but nothing happened. I had my brother help me look into my septic tank and then into my toilet drainage. I found no sort of blockage. I eventually had to dispense with the party since nobody could use the bathroom. My house was starting to smell and my girlfriend was freaking out about no water. I called for emergency plumbing services and the guy came right over. It was nice having a professional look at it. The issue was just a full septic tank. The guy came out the next morning and pumped it. I then cleaned my hallway, toilet and shower. After that, everything was back in business like normal. It was a total shock at how much a septic tank being full can impact my life. I will be more on top of it with plumbing related issues. Dealing with dirty, stinky water was really awful.
