And if, like us, you have no sewer line but a septic tank, it should be, if
all possible, down-hill from the house. About every two years we have the
septic tank dug out and pumped out. There are a couple of vents into the
drain fields, but that's only to check to see if they are flowing freely. In
previous house - this is about 40 years ago - the septic tank was uphill
from the house and would cause serious backups. Since we were quite
impecunious in those days, and Chet traveled most of the time, I became
quite the jane of all trades. Once I thought perhaps I could help the
slow drain by opening the cap I could see in the basement where the
house drains went out into the septic tank. You can imagine the
results. This cap was about six feet from the floor, so I got a complete
shower. Did solve the problem, however.

how much applies to you, but.... Someplace outside the home there is access
to your sewer line. A cap that screws off so the plumber can gain access to
the pipe to run a rooter thought it to clean it out when stopped up.
