WHAT IS A PUMP CHAMBER

A pump chamber is used when wastewater is unable to travel through your septic or sewage system by gravity alone. For example, if your house is lower than the street or if your leaching field is higher than your septic tank.

SEPTIC PUMP CHAMBER PROBLEMS

Your septic system is critical for the safe and smooth operation of your home's wastewater elimination. But when something goes wrong, you need to know where to turn. At A.D.B. Construction & Septic Corp., we have the tools and expertise necessary to handle issues with your septic system, including septic pump chamber problems. So, give us a call at the first sign of trouble.

THE ROLE OF A SEPTIC PUMP CHAMBER


A septic pump chamber plays an important role in today's septic chamber systems. Household wastewater first goes into the septic tank. A pump chamber is installed if you live in a location with a high water table or difficulty with drainage.


The pump chamber contains an effluent pump to move waste more easily. It also features pump control floats to keep track of the volume of water entering and make sure your wastewater level remains proper. The pump chamber also contains a water alarm float, which triggers an alarm when water levels get too high. This alerts you to excessive water in the system and to problems that need to be handled immediately.


PUMP CHAMBER MAINTENANCE


You can maintain your pump chamber through regular inspections. Frequent maintenance may also include a good yearly cleaning to avoid sewage backups and ensure a smooth wastewater treatment process. Comprehensive septic maintenance may seem a little expensive initially, but it can be much cheaper than fixing a broken system later.


SIGNS YOUR PUMP CHAMBER HAS PROBLEMS 


Keep an eye out for signs that your pump chamber and septic system have problems. You might notice water and sewage backing into your house or slow-draining showers and sinks. Be on the lookout for odd gurgling noises in your pipes.


Pay close attention, too, to the areas around the location of your pump system and drain field. You could see spongy places in your yard or smell something nasty. There may be damp spots or standing water around, or your sewage alarm may even go off.


All of these are signs your septic system has a problem. If you're experiencing these signs, we can check for pump malfunctions, a faulty pump, a build-up of gases inside pump chambers, backups, and other issues that may be causing your system to go haywire. Then we'll fix the problem to get your wastewater flowing easily again.
