There could be a clog in your septic tank output line and your pump is not working. You can call a local contractor to find whats wrong and fix it quickly. Otherwise it can cause drainage backup and other septic tank issue.
If you need any septic tank parts, you can order it online.

Could be. could also be a clogged output line, a blockage in the septic field, even a sock stuck in the intake of the pump.

What's the quickest and easiest way to test a septic system?


There is no quick or sure way to check, you can only look at the obvious for problems and then it is pretty much anyone's guess unfortunately. This article will give you items to look for and look at.

Do septic tanks need to be emptied? If so how often should they be emptied?


If everything is going as it should and the sludge in your septic tank is decomposing properly you shouldn't need to empty the tank too often, but its a good idea to periodically pump out the tank to ensure against problems. You should be getting your tanked checked once a year at a minimum.

that breaker could be the supply to the float inside the tank that sounds the alarm when full, check with the escrow company handling your purchase for full disclosure of the pump and installation, they should have all that if the pump and tank were installed with the correct permits . if they don't, ask for that Info from the seller ,

Water level sometime very low, sometimes very high (almost overflow) and eventually returns to normal level. time can vary from 30 minute to 12 hours. at end of flush often a big explosive air bubble....


I would say the first thing you should do is, drain out your toilet using a cup and sponge, remove the toilet from the floor and inspect the base of the toilet for blockage. Also check the floor floor and gasket to be sure there are no restrictions. If all is clear then run a garden hose full pressure into the drain and see if it backs up. If the drain is blocked and you don't have access to a drain snake then you an go to a local hardware store and buy what is called a drain king that connects to the garden hose and pressurizes the drain to clear the blockage. If you dig up the septic lid make sure you have it pumped at the same time.And as always don't forget to use your rid-ex every other month. Hope this helps.
