Water flooding from the base of the toilet helpp

Woke up to water throughout my house coming from under the toilet. We are septic. Had the septic drained 6months ago. Water comes out a little when we use the other restroom or shower. Wondering if it could be the pipes clogged or the leech field not working? Any ideas or suggestions would help a lot thanks!

Anytime water comes from under the toilet, your wax seal has failed. Yes, it's possible your leech field needs a new branch.

It sounds like you have two problems. A clogged drain line or septic problem causing a backup and a failed wax ring allowing the water to escape around the base of the toilet.
