Sulfur Smell and soap suds back up
Asked Nov 4, 2008, 12:37 PM
We just bought my grandparents farm. They lived here for over 70 years.
The septic we have found out was placed in an old well. All the years my grandparents lived here we never noticed any back ups or sulfur smells. Now that we live here going on 4 months... the smell is getting worse and the back ups are too.
I notice that the soap suds back up and gurgle in the toilet and in the shower and sink in the bathroom. The strong sulfur smell is in the bathroom only after the back ups. I also notice more suds back up when using the Tide free detergent.
This is a very nice old house... we are clueless as to where to start to solve this problem. My husband is not as worried as I am... I feel like that much sulfur smell can not be good. Can anyone help?
