Aero-Stream Aero-ALERT
The multi-function Aero-ALERT alarm from Aero-Stream is designed for easy installation and to fit any residential or commercial septic system or holding tank. Employing a self-contained power cell, installation is simplified and mitigates the need to hire an electrician or pull an electrical permit. This reduces installation costs and eliminates the liability of performing the wiring yourself. The alarm can be used in systems requiring an alarm event such as ATU air flow, or utilizing a free-standing float switch system, effluent filter maintenance, holding tank or pump chamber alarm. Incorporating high efficiency electronics including a 95dB audible and a 360-degree flashing light allows the unit to emit a continuous alarm signal for more than 2,000 hours (90+ days) without depleting the battery, as well as be located up to 100 feet from the tank. 877-254-7093;
