Septic System Trouble
THe plumbing vents need to be checked for blockage.
The drain pipes may need "jetting". A hand held snake or small powered snake may go down easily while not clearing out much of the diameter of a drain pipe.
Dig up one of the septic tank hatches and lift the cover. If the liquid level is consistently about 9 inches below the top then the septic tank should be okay.
Does the toilet flush properly if you use a bucket with about 3 gallons of water in it (2 gallons for new style toilets) instead of pushing the flush lever on the tank?
The disadvantages of crab apple trees. In summer, the apples are too sour to pick and eat. In winter the birds come and leave dropping all over the place.
