flooding : do’s and don’ts
May 13, 2017
in case of flooding near your septic installation
Do not have your septic tank pumped at this time! Water may have infiltrated under and around your tanks, unnoticed. When tanks are pumped out, they become much lighter and water may then force tanks upwards. Avoid unnecessary headaches and wait for a more appropriate moment.
restarting a BIONEST system after flooding
Here’s how :
1. Open all 4 covers to visualize the system’s status.
2. Make sure water has withdrawn at septic tank and reactor outlet inverts.
3. Remove effluent filter and clean using a garden hose, so to remove any particle from filter openings.
4. Cleaning of effluent filter must be done weekly, until particles no longer block openings.
5. Should you have an AUX (BIO-UV) alarm and water is at septic tank and reactor outlet inverts, please contact BIONEST After Sales department.
6. Should you have an HL (BIO-PUMP) alarm and water is at septic tank and reactor outlet inverts, please contact BIONEST After Sales department.
Should clogging of your effluent filter persist after a 3-4 week period, the septic tank should then be pumped out completely and filled with clear water. The recirculation pump’s electrical supply must be turned off for this operation.
