Did I clog something? Septic Tank


I am a renter and have well water and a septic tank. That's what I was told anyway and I'm assuming it is accurate. This morning I flushed a few kleenex' which I have already learned I shouldn't do, and won't do again. I think I flushed 2 at a time, twice. The only thing that happened... is shortly after I had little to know water pressure. It has been about 6 hours with no change. Is this because of something I did or a random coincidence? Thanks for the help.

Sounds like a coincidence. I am assuming no water pressure anywhere - check for a tripped breaker (or burnt fuse) that controls the well pump If you can't find anything obvious then contact your landlord for instruction on getting a plumber or electrician out to troubleshoot. No reason to mention the Kleenex as that isn't that big of a deal. (The biggest no-no's are lady's sanitary pads etc. Those could clog but certainly will play havoc with the tank.)

Good luck.
