hey guys..I'm new here and looking for some help. I am no septic system expert by any means but ill try to explain things the best way I can. everything was working fine, I went away for a week, it got really cold for a couple of days and now my septic pump isn't working properly. if I have a shower, I hear the septic pump start but it doesn't pump anything. also,it will keep on running until I shut it down myself. I then prime it and it seems to work fine until the next time it starts and if does the same thing.....starts but doesn't pump. my neighbour suggested the pipes might be frozen but that doesn't make any sense to me. it starts when it needs to so the float is obviously sensing a need to start. if I prime the pump, if seems to work ok. it just doesn't work properly when starting on its own. anyone have any idea what is going on here???? is the pump screwed or does it sound like some other problem. I'm losing my mind here so any help would be greatly appreciated . thanks.
