Septic System Repair Question 2


From this thread

got home today and noticed a large sink hole just at the side of the septic tank top cover, hole is 6' x 4' x 4'
Panic set in
Then checked septic pump electrical breaker it was off so flicked on then the water in the bottom of the sink hole started to drop. I could then see the top of the plastic compartment walls in the septic tanks( it's a 7' foot round base divided into 3 circular compartments.
From what I can make out the lower body / compartment section of the tank had sheet foam cover and it looks like this may have collapsed under the weight of the soil/ground above and dropped into the tank. So don't think it a sink hole just the cover collapsing and soul dropping into the compartments of the tank.
Hope you can advise
