An alarm is an essential part of protecting your septic system.

Septic alarms let you know when the system needs attention. It alerts you when something isn’t right, such as the water level being higher or lower than it should be, which can indicate an issue with the pump, timer, floats, and other parts. This can help you avoid an emergency situation, such as wastewater flowing back into your home.

Unless you have a septic alarm in place, you will not know there is an issue until it becomes an emergency. If the alarm is activated, you will have time to address the issue and typically have a full day’s worth of water.

Professional Septic Alarm Installation

Alarms for septic systems can be mounted to your home’s wall, outside the tank, or inside the property.

The different types of septic tank alarms include:

  • A dedicated circuit – Typically, we recommend a dedicated circuit or a separate circuit from the effluent pump in the septic system. If an electrical circuit trips due to a pump failure, the alarm on that circuit does not work and cannot alert you.
  • Exterior power – If a dedicated circuit isn’t possible, we can use an exterior-powered alarm with failover protection. This makes sure the alarm keeps working even if there’s a circuit breaker tripped.
  • Wireless – For existing septic systems without alarms and where float cables and electrical aren’t possible, wireless alarms offer flexibility. Septic tank alarms use wireless or Bluetooth technology to send signals to the homeowner’s mobile device.

There are three elements to septic tank alarms: a float or level monitoring system to detect how high the wastewater level is, a visual component, and a buzzer. A septic alarm is a simple yet effective device that can save you hundreds and thousands of dollars in property damages and repairs, whether you have an old or new system.

What Happens When Your Septic Alarm Goes Off

It’s not a reason to panic if your septic alarm goes off. These alarms alert you to potential problems before they become serious.

As a first step, you should check the floor drains for sewer water entering the home. You should also check the septic tank effluent level by opening the lid and observing the level of the water. If the problem persists, inform the household to reduce the amount of water it consumes.

Next, call us and we will assist you with some basic troubleshooting and ask you preliminary diagnostic questions. If necessary, one of our technicians will conduct an on-site assessment and make service recommendations. When your septic alarm goes off, never ignore it, even if you don’t see any issues. We will make sure all bases are covered, and your system is working properly.
