Could be anyone of these.
If a drains not completly plugged up it will still drain just slowly, by trying to dump that much water down the drain at once it's filling up the pipe and has no where to go so it backs up. Leave it a while and all the water drains.
If I was on a septic I would not be dumping that much water down the drain.
I'd be using a pump and just dump it out a window.
Don't think its the leach field or septic tank full - had it cleaned out a year ago and once I plungered the toilet all water went down right away fast and worked several days including draining the tub at least once. Could it be a partial blockage that I'm moving with the plunger? Is so what can I do? Could it be a vent blockage?
I can't pump my tub out the window. House is 12 is years old
