Macerator fixed tank gauge

Here is a new one. Living on property while house is finished had to use my pump for the first time. After pumping all the tanks out I hooked the flush hose up to pump and actually back filled all my tanks one at a time. Redrained using macerator pump and sucked all tanks dry. For the first time ever all four of my tanks read empty. Since new two never read below 1/3 tank.
Strange thing I did notice after gravity dumping and flow stopped I ran macerator and it pumped for another five min sucking out the tanks.
Now I am wondering if my sensors got clean after two years or if I have two tanks that sit where they stay 1/3 full.

As a side note the macerator pumped 70 ft to my house clean out no problem at all

It is empty and just winterized couple weeks ago

Will keep fingers crossed for next year. Maybe a freeze thaw cycle will factor in somehow for the better when I give it a shot.

Never back filled tanks from the bottom before, that had to break stuff loose.
