What is this? This is my septic tank backing up into my basement. I noticed today that I had a gigantic wet spot on my basement floor- which is carpeted by the way. This is why. When my washing machine empties it dumps between a gallon or two of "mess" up into my basement. We believe it may have been going on for a week. The smell wasn't at all bad until I opened the drain and cut away the carpeting. Now, words can't describe the smell.
I hope the septic dude can come tomorrow. If not, it's next week- we have to have the garage sale this weekend. Of course, now it's a "pay for my septic tank" sale.
