Scenario Number 2: involves a timer controlling how much waste water your system is allowed to handle. With this system you will have to work closely with your Onsite Septic Maintenance Provider.
1. You could have simply fed your septic system too much water. Stop running all water inside the house, wait for 6-8 hours, and if your alarm does not clear itself then follow Scenario Number 1 for troubleshooting.
Scenario Number 3: involves a ground water intrusion leak. Rain or surface water is getting into your system causing it to hydraulically overload. How do you find out if your taking on ground water? This is a bit complicated to explain, but I’ll do my best.
1. Your Onsite Septic Maintenance Provider will have a dissolved oxygen kit. At this point we start to look like lab-technicians instead of septic maintenance providers. We pull samples from all over your septic system to find out where ground or surface water is getting in. For example, your septic system should have zero dissolved oxygen in the water. Septic means no dissolved oxygen in the water. If we take samples from the system and get zero dissolved oxygen everywhere until as certain point then, just like that, we found the area of the intrusion. Leaks for the most part are easy to fix but hard to find.
