Looks like your septic tank. Could be full or you may have a different problem

ETA: If you have a lift station or discharge pump they could be clogged or may have a solids handling problem. I design shite tanks for Offshore and marine applications so land based are a little foreign to me

It means your back left is low on air. Remove the faux brick skirt, buy a stolen air compressor from your cousin the meth head and add to about 42PSI.

re: Home question: what is this and why is this light on?


Not exactly related, but this post reminded me of something I saw back when I used to rent a house near LSU.
There were some apartments across the way that one day nearly burned down after some catastrophic failure at the service entrance. Entergy came out and did some work, which included installing some box of equipment that had a red light and buzzer attached. At least several times a day, these indicators would indicate...something, sounding for 10 seconds or so with the light on.
Anybody know what this might have been? I always felt sorry for those apartment dwellers—I could clearly hear it sounding a couple hundred feet away.

Is there an audible alarm as well? If so then prob a pump problem on septic tank. Could be for heat tracing but that is usually mounted inside your house (on wheels).

No audible alarm, just solid red light. There is apparently the septic, overflow tank, and pump out to the sewer line. Most suggest it's just the pump but I'm clueless with plumbing.

He's from Alabama. I figured it meant his home's tire pressure was low.
