I live in home about 15 years old and have had problems with water backing up inside home... Have ran sewer snake everywhere I have access but found nothing..cleaned at the end of drain pipe that flows onto property which was silted up.. Also took lid off of sewer tank and saw no solids and put shovel into tank and didn't feel any solids...aerator pump is working.. Does anyone have any ideas before I call a plumber? Also septic system has never been pumped!!

Id start with pumping, even if it turns out it was not needed it is over due.

could have one of many problems in the main line, get the system checked (camera inspection of the complete system) no guessing, your problem could be as simple as a bad flushing toilet to a problem in the line.
