I am looking at a house with both holding and septic tanks.

Per the sellers, the system has a holding tank that empties into a septic tank and that flows into the septic field through multiple fingers or drain.

I am not familiar with septic tanks at all, but other houses I have looked did not have both tanks. Is this something I should stay away from?

Thanks
 
Not enough info to give a useful answer.

Personally and professionally I believe city sewer and city water is the best way to go most of the time if it’s available.

I suggest having the system inspected by a qualified septic tank company that will open every tank and do a drain field test. Go with their recommendations.
