The 18 Items Your Aerobic Septic System Technician Should Be Checking

Posted on

How much will it cost to clean my septic tank?

There’s a lot more to servicing aerobic systems than adding chlorine. It takes a lot of electrical knowledge and experience to know how to diagnose and troubleshoot the electrical components of your aerobic septic system. Aerobic systems can’t treat the wastewater properly without electrical components working correctly. Below are the 18 items we recommend a technician checks when performing maintenance on your system:

  • Diffusers
  • Aerator filters
  • Submersible pump
  • Spray heads (rotation and popping up and down)
  • Audio alarm
  • Visual alarm
  • All floats in the pump tank and aerobic tank
  • Timer
  • Photocell
  • Electrical circuits
  • Chlorine supply
  • Chlorine residual
  • PSI of the aerator pump
  • Sludge level in aerobic tank
  • Sludge level in the pump tank
  • Vegetation
  • Weir filter
  • System odor

We’re in the business of educating our customers on how to get the most out of their septic systems to avoid costly extra maintenance and replacements. Most septic system companies only check a few of the items above, so it’s important to understand what your service provider includes and does not include in service. Remember: not all septic service companies are equal.
