If for whatever reason you do not have an inspection port, you will need to have one installed. Basic septic port installation Instructions are available on our website however, we recommend that you can call a local septic service provider or a septic installer.

Factory reset is not available and not needed on the SAM™ module. Contact us and we can     evaluate if there are upgrades that can be done remotely. If not, we will issue an RMA and have the unit sent to us for repair, www.septicrx.com/support. If under the warranty period, there will be no charge for the repair or shipping. If warranty expired and the unit cannot be repaired you will be responsible for the cost of repair and shipping.

9) Initial Troubleshooting

SAM not connecting to the mobile device app: WI-FI needs to be present and SAM™ needs to be in Listening Mode in  order to begin connecting with the Mobile App. To put SAM™ in Listening Mode, hold the “Setup” button until the RGB LED begins blinking blue, then release setup button.

WI-FI Strength: The signal strength is the wireless signal power level received by the wireless client. Strong signal strength results in more reliable connections and higher speeds.

Signal Quality: A value ranging from 0 to 100, which considers along with signal strength, the noise generated by interference sources. A network can be connected to with a very good signal strength, but at a not so good quality.

To Erase Stored Networks: To erase the stored WI-FI networks stored in SAM™, hold the “Setup” button until it blinks dark blue, then continue to hold it down for about another ten seconds longer, until the RGB LED blinks blue rapidly, then release.

Please check WI-FI and/or batteries if you notice any readings in red either in the water level chart or in the table.

If you still have problems connecting to your WI-FI or need more in depth troubleshooting information, please visit our website support area
