: HOW MUCH WATER SHOULD BE IN THE SEPTIC LINE BETWEEN THE HOUSE AND THE SEPTIC TANK? MINE SEEMS TO STAY AT LEAST 3/4 FULL ALL THE TIME.
I would say no water. But how do you know there is water in the line? The outlet on a septic tank is lower than the inlet, so water coming in drains out the outlet to the absorption field or pit, solids drop into the septic tank. Perhaps the line from house to tank is not properly pitched. Investigate further. My .02
