Dr Who Fan thank you for the reply. I bought the house over a year ago. It was not disclosed in the seller's disclosures. They did, however, note that the tank was pumped prior to the showing of the house. This problem started as soon as 2-3 months of owning the house.

Hello Friends,

I apologize for my absence but I come seeking advice. I bought a house (mistake) and am on a septic tank with a seepage pit. The seepage pit fills way above the groundwater level with grey water. This causes the septic tank to back up because the grey water is waiting to disperse to the water table and starts waiting in the septic. I was told by a sketchy septic guy that I could pour chlorine or put chlorine tablets down the access port of the seepage pit (not the septic) and that it will clean out the clogged areas. I feel that adding poison to the ground water table is not really the answer. He mentioned they used to pour hydrochloric acid down those in the past to clean them, but it is now illegal.

Has anyone delt with this problem? Being a new homeowner I am already extremely strapped for cash and am looking for a cost-effective/legal/ethical way to handle the problem. Septic crews in the area are reporting $650-$800 to just treat and clean the pit with chemicals but without exposing it. If they have to dig it, it will be about $5,000-$10,000. I am humbly seeking any advice that you guys can give.

Tech Info on the PIT/Septic.

Septic:
Capacity-900/g

Seepage Pit:
Diameter-38"
Depth Overall-36'
Depth Effective-31'6"
Distance From Septic-9'

Thank You in advance for any replies.

Sweet my thread has lived on and kept my legacy alive!

I have been watching "Under The Dome" the TV series. Recently watched all of Scandal, but towards the end I was ready for it to be over.

Thinking of everyone!

I often get these calls on my Grandmother's land line.
I enjoy the Monday approach a lot as well, although I am typically not as aggressive.

I like to tell them that I am on crutches and it will take me a minute to get to the computer, and just place the phone face down somewhere near the TV so its really loud when they are waiting.
Of course I have walked through with them up until the point where I am installing Team Viewer then immediately have to use the rest room and we hook back to the phone being face down near the TV.

It's quite an interesting scam, and it's sad that they have likely compromised a lot of people's computers.

I am not a really emotional person, but I read this last night prior to going to bed and this haunted me for hours. I just really have nothing to say to express my sorrow. There are a lot of names here on the board you will always just "know." I am likely not one of them, but this just really is sad to hear. I will miss seeing him beeps and conjectures here on the board. I wish I was a little better at expressing my thoughts on the matter but to go millennial on you guys this sucks so bad.

Again not sure if this would match current interests. But I have watched the Star Wars animated series "The Clone Wars." I enjoyed it a lot as far as the lore and story goes from the original three vs the new three + the newest one. It was interesting, if you can get past the "kid" like animation it was decent.

I am not sure its the flavor of our group, but I have been watching Silicon Valley.
It has amused me so far, but a lot of unnecessary swearing and sexual jokes as the current norm in recent media.

I am just checking in again.
The last time I posted in this thread I was starting a new job at a hotel.
Since that time (roughly a year) I have been promoted from the third shift position to Front Office Manager, to assistant general manager.

I am hanging in there, but its a lot of work.
I'll never forget my Seti friends!
I am always near by.

I see my thread has been busy in my absence!

Currently watching the new Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead. Really anything with some pop-culture value. All though I quickly become tiered of the smut that is mixed into many of these shows now.
