I have a resident who is having sewage backup into the house. The tank was pumped on 31 Dec 2012 and the pumper indicated that there was about 1.5 - 2' of toilet paper in the bottom of the tank and that toilet paper was everywhere in the tank. It was difficult to pump the tank due to the amount of toilet paper and it was like pumpig a tank that had not been pumped in years. They attribute the amount of toilet paper as the cause of the backup. Gound was frozen and not able to probe.
It is a new house and system, installed Oct 2011.
1,200 gallon tank 2,500 SF lateral perc rate 37 mintues per inch load rate .2 G/SF/Day per soils chart
4 people are living in the house and they are using 4,000 - 6,500 gallons of water/month (233 gallons/day)
It is reasonable that too much toilet paper is causing the backup? The installer checked pipe elevations at inlet, outlet and first lateral prior to the tank pumping and they were all good.
I appreciate input.
