When septic system troubles arise from the ground they linger, and worse, they build up into greater problems. Worst of all, complete system failure is possible if maintenance is deferred too long. When you flush or drain something down it must defy gravity to come back up and the odds are something permanent is causing the system to fail.

Usual Suspect of Septic Failure.
Two important concepts of septic systems are overall capacity and actual usage. Once actual usage exceeds overall capacity problems can creep up fast. Once overall capacity is lost it must be manually corrected in most cases. Here are a few common reason septic systems lose capacity.
Septic Capacity Issues #1
Buildup of solids and lack of maintenance
Solids, both natural and unnatural, are the most common reason septic tanks fail. When they buildup as sludge in a septic tank they reduce the overall capacity by default. Solids will accumulate in your septic tank with basic use, but there are also things you should not flush, and if you have a garbage disposal solids will accumulate faster.
The most common and most avoidable issue
Septic Capacity Issues #2
Tree roots and other vegetation.
Piping from the house to the septic tank and field lines can easily be damaged from the powerful and the wide-sprawling network of roots trees and shrubs use to obtain resources. In many cases, effluent waste water traveling through your septic system is a great fertilizer.

Septic Capacity Issues #3
Parking and heavy vehicle traffic.
Ground absorption is another critical factor in determining the overall capacity of a septic system. Soil compaction will prevent a natural distribution of effluent waste water from your septic system to the surrounding absorption field and reduce the overall capacity.
