  • Toilet or Septic System?

    When I had my septic cleaned out, the drain was tested for flow, just a couple of flushes to check for flow. However, every once in a while one of the toilets will overflow, each time it was male urination (no toilet paper). This may happen after multiple flushing over the course of the day and a morning constitution. The second toilet has a very weak flush, but never backs up, however is rarely is used for constitutions.

    Would this be a septic system problem or is a more powerful toilet needed? The only markings on the toilet is 1.6 gpf
