FAQ's - Your Aerobic Septic System
A septic system is a sub-surface wastewater treatment system. Gravity-flow systems include multiple septic tanks (or compartments) to retain solids & greases/fats, and a disposal field to allow the remaining effluent out into the ground. Aerobic units treat wastewater better than older gravity-flow units. See our aerobic section for more info.
If your aerobic septic system has an alarm, the first thing you can do is mute the Audible buzzer by pressing on the Mute switch or button on your control panel. Secondly, check your air pump, ensure the small tube that runs from your air pump to your controller is still intact.
If your alarm still persists, please contact us and we'll get out to you ASAP.

If you are building a new house: Yes.
If your house already has a septic system:
The State of Texas allows old gravity flow units that are working to remain in place. If your current gravity flow system is backing up and not draining properly then it could be time for an upgrade. Also if your tank has serious cracks in the side walls or damaged field lines, these could be other signs of a replacement requirement.
