    The grass will be greener over a nonworking septic. Yes, that's true. When was the last time it was pumped? Do you know where the cleanout is? Have you driven over the septic field and compacted it?

    We found that water pooled over the septic field.....yes, the grass is greener....Probably need it pumped out or maybe the tile is broken leading from the house to the septic tank.

    Sinks, toilet and bath don't drain or very slow. Odor outside, maybe even soggy water contaminated with feces on lawn.
    Have you been putting enzymes down the drains monthly? I saved one of my clients system by getting Roebics Emergency Septic Treatment and did her system 3 times a week apart. Then you should also do one treatment of the Root Killer by Roebics. The septic guy quote her $6k.
    Then you need to learn what not to put down your drains/toilet. One of the main culprits is type of toilet paper, make sure its septic friendly on the package. And put the enzymes down monthly to prevent this in future.

    Your toilets won't flush, your sinks won't drain. You have leakage at the tank.
