|In response to Re: Does water from a septic backup always stink?|
Caveat Emptor - "let the buyer beware"! - you are not liable for any of these issues, check with a lawyer, but it was up to the house buyers to inspect the drainage system. You have no liability (in European law anyway!)
: The current homeowner has stated that she discovered the septic problem months earlier. Water was backing up into the downstairs shower when the washing machine was running. She stopped the washing machine before the shower overflowed.
: The kitchen is immediatley above the downstairs bathroom. The waste from the kitchen drops straight down to the first floor. The upstairs bathroom waste lines merge with the downstairs waste lines downstream from the bathroom/laundry.
: One last thing, the flooding started after heavy rains. Could the heavy rains cause an existing septic problem to get worse?
: All comments would be greatly appreciated!!
