Sewage Smell
Well $&@#...literally.

Started noticing a slight possible sewage smell outside in my backyard about two days ago after some heavy rain.

When I got home tonight I didn’t smell anything but wasn’t really paying attention. About 45 minutes later and after I took a shower, the back yard smells like a homeless person shite in it...

How bad is this?

re: Sewage Smell
Septic system? Might just be temporary from the rain, or it could be drain field failure.

re: Sewage Smell
Septic? If not, does your waste line run through your backyard?

re: Sewage Smell
If it is beyond your septic tank, it could be a field line failure or back up. Can you locate a small or very small 'pool' of gray water or gray chalk-like mud? Or, it could be a temporary result of the massive rains most of us have been having.

re: Sewage Smell
Mine did the same thing whenever my aerobic pump went out on my septic system. They usually contain a linear pump with two diaphragms. Mine would smell occasionally when one diaphragm went out and I didnt realize what happened until the other failed causing an alert which prompted me to make a repair.
