Call our team in Jacksonville, St. Augustine & Middleburg, FL to service your septic sump pump.

A septic pump, also known as a sump pump or a dosing pump, moves wastewater from the dosing tank to the drain field. The dosing system consists of a dosing tank, float, float switch, and an alarm box. The float measures the water level in the dosing tank. Once the wastewater reaches a high level, the float will signal the pump to push the excess water into the drain field. If the pump fails and cannot pump the water into the drain field, the rising water level will signal the float switch to activate an alarm. The alarm warns that water levels are too high in the dosing tank and the pump needs replacing. Delaying your septic pump repair or replacement can cause a backup of wastewater in your house.
