It's not fun to step outside and hear the alarm on your septic tank blaring for the entire world to hear. There are a few reasons this could be happening, so be prepared whenever it inevitably happens.
1. Electrical Issues
Your septic system is powered by electricity. If you've recently had a power outage or if the alarm system is not getting proper electricity, this could trigger the alarm when there is no real problem with the septic system itself. A disconnect between the tank and the alarm system can also cause a false alarm. When you hear the alarm going off, it's never a bad idea to ensure that there are no electrical mishaps taking place.
2. Weather and/or Groundwater
If it's been particularly rainy or if inclement weather has caused groundwater to seep into your drainfield, this will prevent actual wastewater from being properly removed from the tank. Look for signs of standing water around your septic system. If you see that it's more saturated than usual, avoid watering your grass, doing multiple loads of laundry, or other activities that use a lot of water. Give your system time to catch up.
3. Faulty Component
There are several functioning parts within your septic system that keep it operating properly. If a pump, timer, or float stops working, this can typically lead to elevated water levels inside the tank, which will lead to an alarm.
4. Have your Septic System inspected regularly
We always recommend having your septic system inspected regularly so you can have peace of mind knowing that it's in full operation. Sometimes issues left untreated can result in costly repairs or even replacement of the system. Give us a call and we can get you on a service maintenance plan to save you time, money, and the hassle of those annoying alarms.
