My toilets do not seem to be working properly, funny... I am in a fairly new house, 2 years old, septic system. Toilets have been working great. Now, you flush once, is ok, but you flush again after just a few minutes and it acts like its backed up. But, give it a little while and it will flush normal. Now normally I can flush twice without letting the toilet bowl fill up all the way. But the toilets were full with fresh water(shut off after filling) to make sure. I have 2 bathrooms and both toilets are acting the same way. The showers and sinks are fine. A snake has been ran through both and both have been plunged, at the same time even, no affect. What could be causing this. The toilets are obviously not clogged, and had been working just fine? We have gotten alot of rain lately, the ground is very soaked. My septic system is underground, but not like 50 feet down or so, more like 10. Someone had suggested that the ground might be too wet for the septic to empty the water. My concerns regarding this are: The septic tank would have to be about full wouldn't it, and the shower and sinks are fine, they go to the same septic tank/drain field. Also, it was said that maybe the toilets add more water at once that is why they were affected only. Please any info would be greatly appreciated.
