After putting my toddler to bed last night, I came downstairs to drain the water from his bath. A little while later, I went down to my (unfinished) basement to get something, and noticed water on the floor. While investigating, I happened to open the top of the washing machine and noticed it was half full with soapy water. I then ran the bathwater upstairs again, returned to the basement and saw that water was coming up the drain and spitting out the area that the washing machine hose connects to the pipes that lead out to the septic (with some of the water making it into the washing machine hose and ending up back inside there) The septic is only 5 years old (newly installed when we bought the house in Aug 07), never pumped or inspected. Just me, the wife, and the 3 year old. My wife took a shower this morning, and no water in the basement. So it IS draining... just slow I guess? I'm assuming that the water is draining slow because the septic is full and should be pumped. Does this sound right to anyone else? Should I just have someone come pump it, or should I have them do anything else to confirm it's not a different issue? Thanks in advance!
