I got a call for a grinder injector holding tank issue. The control panel seemed to be acting up. Long story short it needs a new float switch. He asked who replaced it,an electrician or the septic repair company. I said call the septic repair guys because I'm not interested, would you work in one?

Do work, clean your tools, 409 and clorox, wash your hands.

You really shouldn't have to enter a tank or wet well to change a float either, if some tard installed a pole and clamp on floats, abandon the bad one in place (secure the old SO cord well) and suspend a weighted one as a replacement.

I work on $hit covered equipment all the time, but it's cow crap, not people crap. I don't even think twice about it. Human waste on the other hand is disgusting, people flush anything and everything!!

SOP for me is rubber gloves when working on human waste equipment, bare hand it for cow crap covered equipment.:thumbup:

Same here. Especially using the weighted float as a replacement. Usually pretty easy to do.

If you're going to be working around raw sewage though, get your hep shots.

Once upon a time, I was setting a float in a grinder the plumber jacked up. It turned out he also did not screw down the clamp on the rubber coupling. I found this out when it broke lose and sprayed me in the face.

Just say no to sewage floats.
