Leon ,Most tanks don’t go bad unless they are steel.Look around the yard for wet spots or grass that is growing a lot better than the rest of the yard.In most cases that I have found the leach bed lines have became stopped up or were to short to start with.
Try this ,locate the very end of the leach bed and dig down and find the pipe.Next hire someone with a steam Jenny or High Pressure washer,back flush the line to the tank.You should be abe to tell if the line is blocked and at what distance.Most of the time backflushing can and will stop the problem.
If the line is less than 100 feet from where it comes out of the tank you will need to extend it a little more. I know this is long but hope it helps, Mark
