Get notified of any warning signs within your septic system to prevent issues.
Having running water in our homes is a modern necessity, and we collectively use a lot of water on a daily basis for washing hands, showering, cleaning, laundry, and flushing toilets. You may not have given it much thought, but that water and waste go somewhere, and that is your septic tank.
Septic tanks function by allowing solids and sludge to drop to the bottom of the tank. The effluent, or liquid in the tank, is drained into the drain field. The drain field will distribute the wastewater and allow natural treatment as microbes do their work and the water is drained through the many layers of earth beneath.
Septic alarms are features of septic systems that will alert homeowners if there is an issue with the water level in the septic tank. Having either too much or too little water or effluent in the tank can be a warning sign that something is amiss. Septic alarms will go off as a warning that the septic system needs attention, and in many cases, the problem can be remedied by drastically reducing water usage to allow the drain field to do its job. However, septic alarms can also go off when professional attention is needed. They can help catch issues early before they snowball into much more costly repair jobs or cause sewage backup into your home.
