If you have a septic system, an alarm is a key component to protect your property.

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. Without a septic alarm, you won’t know that there is an issue until it becomes an emergency situation. When the alarm is activated, you have time to address the issue and typically have a day’s worth of water usage depending on the size of your tank and household use.

Installing A Septic Alarm

Septic alarms can be installed in a variety of places, including outside of the tank, mounted to the wall of your home, or inside your property.

There are different types of septic tank alarms: 

  • A dedicated circuit – We typically recommend having a dedicated circuit or a separate circuit from the septic system’s effluent pump. When a pump failure overloads an electrical circuit and trips the breaker, the alarm on the same circuit loses its power and cannot alert you of the issue.
  • Exterior power – When a dedicated circuit is not possible, we can provide an exterior powered alarm with failover protection. An exterior alarm can isolate the effluent pump from the alarm circuit so that the alarm will keep working in the event of an overload and a tripped circuit breaker.
  • Wireless – Wireless alarms offer flexibility for existing septic systems that don’t already have an alarm in place and float cables and electrical may not be possible. Wireless alarms use WiFi or Bluetooth technology to transmit signals between the septic tank and the homeowner to alert them of potential issues.

Septic tank alarms consist of three elements: a float or level monitoring system to gauge how high the wastewater in the tank is getting, a visual component, and a siren or buzzer. Whether you have an old or newer system, there really is no good reason not to have a septic alarm. This simple yet effective device can save you hundreds and thousands of dollars in property damages and repairs.

What to do if your septic alarm goes off…

When your septic alarm goes off, it’s usually not a reason to panic. They are designed to alert you of an impending issue before it becomes something serious so that you have time to act.

The first thing to do is check for any sewer water entering the home, typically at the floor drain(s). Check the septic tank effluent level by opening the lid and observing the height of the water. Let the household know to reduce the amount of water usage until the issue is resolved.

Next, call us at: (780) 640-1518 and we will have a technician walk you through some diagnostic questions and basic troubleshooting. When required, we will have a technician do an on-site assessment promptly. Never ignore a septic alarm when it goes off and always call a professional as soon as possible.
