Ok so we noticed our septic tank was over flowing (we have only lived here for 6 months when we noticed) so I told our landlords and they called a plumber. Well I waited a few days and it started over flowing again so I told them again. The problem still was not fixed and they had the plumbers come out one last time. Well it has been 2 months and its over flowing again. Its real nasty and when I let my dogs out in the backyard they get all nasty and muddy from it. I don't want to tell them it's messed up again but I don't know what else to do. I have never had a septic tank mess up like this. We only flush toilet paper and we don't use a lot of it. This has never happened before. Our lease is up in September and we are thinking about moving when it's up.
What should I say? I don't want to bug them but I cant have my backyard looking the way it does. It doesn't smell real bad but I can'e let my kids or dogs play in the yard and its very annoying.

They need to have it pumped, and it might be failing. Call the board of health!!

A septic tank needs to be pumped out every other year. It does not matter how what you do, you still need to have it pumped out. A plumber does not pump the septic out. There is a special company that comes out and actually sucks everything out of it. You should not doubt call the landlord again, it his responsibility, do not feel bad about it. You should also ask him when the last time was he had it pumped.
