i have had my septic pumped but the last time the man said that the next time i would need both of them pumped. that there was another tank to dig up. well where is that other tank? is it right next to the other one. five feet away or what. why would i only pump one if there is two. which i was not aware of. now i need the one pumped and i want the other pumped but im not sure where to start digging.

It's possible you have two tanks. Is your lateral field higher than your basement? Sometimes there are two tanks, one is a temporary tank that is in a lower part of your yard, then a pump in that tank pumps the waste to your other tank that is on higher ground, from there it goes to your distribution box and laterals.

I'm not sure why there would be two tanks otherwise, but am no expert. You might check with your county, if your system is not that old a permit was probably issued to put it in. It might describe your system.

All I got was sketch from the guy who installed mine. But I know what I bought. When I sell the next owner will be in the dark.
