My one year warranty is up on my house and tomorrow the contractor is coming by for my punch list. A few months after I moved in, the ground around the septic started caving in. When I uncovered it, I found that the fitting on the pipe to the sludge side of the tank was not glued at the elbow and not sealed at the tank so we were leaking raw sewage. The plumbing contractor came out and fixed it.
The photo shows a tee on the leach field side of the tank that has a filter in it. The tee is not glued. The plumbing contractor is telling me it isn’t supposed to be glued. I think the guy is full of what is in the sludge side of the tank. Also…the sludge side of the tank has about 5" of sludge in it after one year. It is just my wife and I in the house. Is that about right? Need help from some of you plumbing experts.
