We had a $450 clog at the input to the septic tank, turned out it was too much TP clogging the splash plate into the tank. I have easy access to the tank cover, the plumber opened the cover, grabbed a stick and pushed the clog out of the way. I know now..

Maybe your shower goes to a graywater drain?

I'm pretty sure all the plumbing drains connect to the main septic system - actually, I'm quite sure, given the locations of exposed parts of the plumbing. But I don't know the exact topology, and suspect that the shower connects to the main line downstream of both of the toilets in question.

Our tank cover is buried; getting an exposed cover (and something to camouflage it) is somewhere on the to-do list.
