Sewage Backing up Into House or Yard

Question
BACKGROUND: We have a septic system. Sewage was flowing out into the yard. The clean out was found to have the cap missing, which was replaced. Once the cap was replaced, the sewage began to back up in the house. When we would wash dishes, sewage would bubble up into the bathtub, the toilet would not go down, the bathroom sink would drain slow and gurgle.

And if the Distribution Box is flooded, then the out-going pipe/pipes connected from the Distribution Box and leading to the...
