Collin County and North Texas residents do experience occasional brief power outages. If the outage is momentary, or less than an hour or so, check the circuit breaker to make certain that the breaker was not tripped by the outage. When the rare ice or wind storm takes out the electricity for a day or more, aerobic system owners are advised not to use their system as this will eventually cause a backup in the system. Again, make sure the circuit breaker was not tripped when the power comes back on.
