  • The alarm itself can malfunction. 
  • The float that activates the alarm could be bad. 
  • The line between the pump and the field could be broken. Your septic company can check the line for you and replace it if needed.
  • The drain field can no longer accept the water the pump is putting out. This generally requires a new drain field.

What to Do if Your Septic Alarm Goes Off

When your septic system is installed, you may have an alarm to warn you when something goes haywire. Once the alarm sounds, you should have 2 to 3 days before things start backing up in your house. You can mute the sound with many systems, there is often a light that will continue to flash. The danger of an imminent sewage backup is still very real, despite a silenced alarm.

What You Need to Know About Servicing Your Septic Tank

After being shut in all winter, what’s on your to-do list? Don’t forget to add servicing your septic tank to the list!

At every pump out, your professional septic tank cleaner should:

  • Pump it out
  • Check for cracks or leaks 
  • Watch for back flow from the field 
  • Make sure the line from tank to house is clear by running water through it
  • Check for a septic baffle: if none is present it should be installed
  • Clean the septic filter if one is present
  • Install a riser to the surface if none exists 

The above checklist focuses on the tank, but tells you very little about your drain field. Make sure your tank is properly maintained to lengthen the life of your drain field.
