Aerobic System Awareness
Do you find yourself unfamiliar with aerobic system warning lights? We hope this allows you a better understanding of your aerobic systems’ needs!
The good news is, there is no concern unless you are backing up into the house. If you notice signs of a backup (such as gurgling or slow drains), give us a call and we will send a technician out the same day!
High water alarm. This is a signal that your tank is at 50% capacity. This light is common when it is raining or has rained. We recommend allowing 24 hours to pass before sending a technician out to assess.
Aeration alarm. This is a signal that your system is not receiving enough fresh air. You may notice your system smells more than normal. This is not a concern and can be taken care of within 3-5 days.
The alarm will sound with either the red light or the orange light. The alarm may be muted at the control panel until a highly experienced technician can examine the system. You can mute the alarm by going to the control panel or aerator pump and either clicking the silence button or pushing the alarm switch. The light will remain on until the issue is resolved.
