Do you own a home with a septic system? Have you recently experienced some problems with your system? My septic alarm kept going off in my basement. After living in my home for nearly ten years, this was the first that this was happening. I began looking into what could be causing the alarm to sound and found out that it was caused by the septic pump not pulling the water out of the holding tank and into the leach bed. What was causing that problem? Did I need to replace my pump? Scroll through my site to find out what I had to do to prevent a septic overflow into my home.
