If your septic system was built in the past 20 years, there is a very good chance it has a built-in alarm that will sound if there is potentially an overflow. So what do you do when the bell starts ringing?
Well, the first thing to realize is that when the electrical septic control system fails, it is the hinge pin of the entire system. Without a functional effluent pump, you may not have much time before sewage is backing up into your home. Other water and plumbing related failures may trigger the alarm, however these types of faults are usually caused by too much water being used in the home or groundwater seeping into the tank.
Regular maintenance is advised and will hopefully stop this unfortunate event from occurring, but if it does then diagnosing the issue comes first. If the septic control system was not installed correctly, our team will be able to find the problem and get the electrical running as it should! At a minimum, you’ll at least rule out an electrical fault as the source of the problem.
