Sounds fairly reasonable,,,a problem of this nature can take hours to properly diagnosis, and several hundred dollars,,all that work is just to be able to accurately give a firm estimate to fix the problem,,,,,it also could just be something simple,,,,,,cap the drain for a couple of weeks and see what happens.
I am a woman with absolutely no plumbing experience. I have had a plumbing problem for quite some time. Their is constant sewer back up in the basement. I want an opinion about the professional advice I was given. Apparently, the house we live in has only an old holding tank that slopes uphill. I have been advised to install a new holding tank (sloping downhill of course) as well as a sewer field. My confusion is this: Why would I install a new holding tank, when it isn't suited for year round residential purposes and a sewer field both. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.A
