Locating a Septic Tank
We believe you should be able to see what and how an inspection is done before you call us to schedule your inspection.
The AT-12 or FT-8 transmitters are small enough to pass though 3 inch lines. You can free-flush it through the plumbing to the tank or to the blockage, whichever comes first. When you open the tank, the bright colored transmitter should be found floating near the inlet baffle. Once retrieved, turn it off so you can use it on the next job. When the battery dies, recycle it by returning it to Prototek in the supplied pre-paid mailer and earn credit toward your next purchase.
How do I turn a flushable transmitter on and off? The little black disk in the slot is a magnet that controls the power inside the transmitter. Push it with a nail, key or screwdriver toward "ON" to turn it on, toward "OFF" to turn it off. Be sure to store it in the OFF position.
Always turn on the transmitter and receiver before the locate and confirm that they are both operating properly. Make sure you can detect the transmitter from about 12 feet away to ensure you are getting full range.
