    can you route a sump pump to the sewer system?

    Wow, what a shitty way to start the day. My yard flooded a few years back. The septic also overflowed. I was worried that the field line would be plugged up afterwards so I had it snaked for assurance.

    When the ground is this saturated, no septic system is going to do very well. Do you have an aerobic system or the old school. In the black dirt area of Dallas, the old school is just about useless. And we always had a different line for the washing machine
