I hope all the pics don’t screw this up…
Found someone elses dye..........really suspicious
Inlet port not sealed & roots growing through, baffle deteriorating, cap deteriorated and most important: The liquid level rose above the inlet pipe with only 180gallons introduced.............unsat
The absorption area was clear at the time of any dye or liquid (hard to get everything with all the leaves).
The tank was shot, connection bad, ground water infiltration, probably a leaky tank because the original level was about 7 inches below the invert of the inlet pipe.
For those of you who just flush dye down the toilet and do not inspect the tank this is one of those cases that would burn you down the road. If the tank was not uncovered and opened up and I just ran dye I would not have found the problems that were there. There was no breakout to the surface that we could see.
I await comments........
