The SP-400 will alert you when your septic system is reaching maximum capacity due to a pump or float switch failure. When installing your float switch, you can set it at a predetermined height in the septic system. If the water goes above that height, the alarm will sound and alert you of the issue. This can help you prevent a huge flood or major issues within your septic system.
The alarm can be silenced while you work on the issue. However, the red light will stay on until the water level is back to normal. This will let you know if you have fixed the issue, or if further service is needed. The alarm can also be tested to ensure you can hear it.
The SP-400 Septic Tank Alarm is made from NEMA 4X non-metallic enclosure with external mounting feet and a gasket in the door. It also comes with mounting brackets and a 6-foot power cord for easy installation. It is rated for outdoor use.
I want to install a visible (light ) alarm for our gray water tank. There is a 110 power source at the tank site for the lift pump. The light would be on the 4 x 4 post which has the 110 outlet. Does your SP-04000 High Water alarm have a float switch? If not what kind of a switch do I need to install this alarm?
you can use a mercury float by sje rombus https://www.wholesalesepticsupply.com/collections/sje-rhombus-float-switch/products/sje-rhombus-p-n-1017956-aerobic-septic-alarm-float-switch?variant=4540099012 to accomplish this
Does it use a normally open or closed float switch
You can use either a normaly open float switch or normally closed since they both have to close contact to work. The only diffrence is they close contact in a different position. So you can use either float switch if you want.
