SepticSitter Watches Over Sewage Systems

Overloading a septic system often results in costly sewage backups or a swamp in the backyard. The cost to rehabilitate a severely failed drainfield can be many times higher than detecting and fixing problems early. That’s why a product like the SepticSitter from Dynamic Monitors can provide a lot of value.    

The internet-connected remote monitoring system is designed to watch over septic tanks, pump tanks and drainfields at all times, providing peace of mind for homeowners and installers. If a user-preset high level is exceeded,  SepticSitter will send an email alert, so corrective action can be taken before system failure occurs.
“The system provides real-time monitoring, which is key for making fixes before big problems happen,” says Kelly Galloway, president of Dynamic Monitors. “That extra safeguard can make all the difference.”

The electronic sensors install easily in any standard inspection port and provides peace of mind by confirming the drainfield is working properly. The system provides early detection of effluent filter plugging, drainfield hydraulic and organic overloading, leaking plumbing fixtures, and excessive clogging of the infiltrative surface.

Detailed liquid level graphs and reports generated by the SepticSitter can be provided to potential buyers and septic system or home inspectors to demonstrate that the septic system has been working properly under typical loading conditions and occupancy levels. According to Galloway, this information can help maximize the
home value.

“It’s like a CARFAX report for your septic system,” she says. “A prospective buyer can actually look years back into the alert history to see if there have been any issues and if they were resolved.”

Time-stamped liquid level data is sent to and stored in the cloud, where detailed logs of liquid level data can be accessed using any computer or smartphone with web access. Available data includes instantaneous liquid levels, historical trends and can provide proof of drainfield recovery. The data can also be used to help plan if and when a system will need to be expanded, or to identify drainfield lines or zones with excess capacity. It can also help manage alternating, dosing, and resting systems as well as uneven zone distribution. It is easy to install or retrofit as it fits industry-standard inspection ports, can be completely buried if desired, is simple to set up and only requires low-voltage power.

“We see it as a way for plumbers and installers to provide better service and  peace of mind for their customers,” Galloway says. 888/747-7645;
