Septic Pump 101

Mound, Pressure Distribution, Sand Filters and some gravity systems require the use of a pump (or dosing tank). The purpose of the pump is to transfer effluent from the septic tank to the drainfield. A pump should have a audible (loud) alarm that will sound when the pump malfunctions or the power is cut off. This requires that the pump and the alarm be on separate circuits. The alarm is usually located in the garage.
