My septic system has an alarm and it is going off. Why?

You have what we call “an engineered system.” That means there is a pump in a separate tank that doses water to the drain field. The alarm means the water in that dosing tank is above the proper operating level. Most likely, the pump is not operating for some reason which may be electrical (so check your breaker and/or connections at the alarm).  If not, please call our office and we will send someone to assist you in locating the problem.
