plumbing problem


Need help bad !!! I live in a mobile home and I'm having a problem with my plumbing in the kiitchen/bathroom area. My kitchen sink drains but some water goes to the bathrom tub and just sits in tub, also how to build up septic tank outside my septic tank is on a hill and with any heavy rain it fills up. Can a mound of dirt be placed on tank to slow rain water from entering the tank ????

Rain water should not be getting into your sepeic tank. It is a closed system. It sounds like you either have a cesspool or a dry well if it is filling up from rain water.

The water going from the sink to the bathtub could be a septic system that is overwhelmed or it could simply be an obstruction downstream from the sink and tub.

When was the last time the cesspool was cleaned out?
I would probably call a cesspool cleaner who will pump out the basin.
