Yes, Im asking a question, septic systems are not the speciality around here ;-) Plus you guys and gals are faster (and cheaper) than most plumbers I know.

So we had a new 1500 gl pump system intalled 6 years ago. The tank is both holding and pumping with a partial wall seperating the two. Yesterday the alarm went off (not sue if is was high or low water alarm). I switched to manual and heard the pump go on and it actually sounded like it emptied. The alarm is still on. So my guess is that the float is stuck in an, especailly to my dog, "alarming" position (yes I did hit the silencer). Any thoughts, tricks or ideas. It seems In my planning of a patio I used the original blue print not the "as built". So if I must do anything but the yearly pumping, I'll be back in the hardscape business again ;-)

Thanks in advance!

just to share an experience -
I had problems with the alarm going on when the level got too high. The problem was that the GFCI breaker in my crawl space was popping because of dirt/cobwebs/dead bugs in the outdoor outlet box where the pump was plugged in.
When the pump didn't work, the level got too high.
Later I found that the power wire to the pump was buried only about 4 inched deep and got nicked while my wife was gardening. I had to dig a deeper trench and bury new wire.
