Concrete Septic Tank Services

The vast majority of septic systems make use of a concrete septic tank. They are incredibly durable and, if well-built and installed, can last decades. There are even some still in use that have been around for more than 100 years. Like any major structural decision, though, the quality does come at a premium rate and concrete is one of the more expensive options. However, if you’re installing and you opt for one, odds are that you’ll have to replace your roof a couple of times before you have to worry about replacing your wastewater reservoir.

Concrete Septic Tank Installation

If you’re putting up a new building or replacing components of an old unit, you’ll have a choice of materials for the reservoir. Our septic partners handle the install of all types of reservoirs, including assessment for feasibility and permits. The reservoir will be the first line in the purification of your building’s wastewater, so it’s important to have it professionally installed by experts who are detail-oriented, to ensure it is structurally sound, water-tight, and installed to all local codes.

Concrete Septic Tank Maintenance

Commercial and industrial reservoirs need to be pumped every few months. Our partner technicians can work with you to determine your ideal pumping schedule based on how much use the unit gets. Residential units may need to be pumped annually if the house uses a garbage disposal or has things like spas, which can contribute to the load. Otherwise, every 3-5 years is generally adequate.

Concrete Septic Tank Inspections

When our partner technician arrives to pump, he’ll inspect the reservoir and its components to ensure they’re functioning properly and aren’t showing any signs of wear. If he notices any issues, he will notify you, so you can be proactive and take care of it before it becomes a problem. Our partner technicians also see to real estate inspections and can supply a detailed report as part of your preparation to buy or sell property with a unit on it.

Concrete Septic Tank Repair

It is really rare for a concrete septic tank to need repairs, but sometimes a lid or baffle has issues that need tending to. Much of the time when a unit has issues, it’s actually the leach field or the main line into the reservoir that requires repair or replacement. Not to worry, Our septic partner handles all these components, too, and will respond to your emergency repair call quickly.

Many modern septic systems make use of fiberglass or plastic septic tanks, as opposed to concrete models. Plastic tends to be the top choice when finances are a concern and they can last for decades, too. The only caveat is that they’re more prone to mechanical damage, so it’s really important to mark where it’s buried and avoid driving over the area, pounding stakes, or doing anything that might add undue pressure to it. They do handle the earth well, however, and once they’re installed, they tend to provide effortless care aside from regular inspections and pumping. No matter what kind of service you need, our experienced partner technicians will handle it with professionalism, accuracy, and diligence.

Fiberglass and Plastic Septic Tanks: Installation

When you’re putting up a new building that doesn’t have access to a local sewer line, you’ll have many options in the design and materials used in your unit. Some of this will be limited by local laws and the soil on the property, but our partner technicians will perform a full assessment and do all the planning and permits, so you can be sure your unit and all its components will serve you well for many years.

Fiberglass and Plastic Septic Tanks: Maintenance

Very little maintenance is needed, aside from regular pumping. The reservoir handles most of the work by dividing the liquid “effluent” from the solids and then sending the effluent off to a leach field. The remaining solids should be pumped out every 3-5 years in residential reservoirs, provided the home does not have a garbage disposal or something like a spa, which would contribute to the load it needs to take on. In these cases, annual pumping is necessary to keep the unit operating at peak performance. Industrial and commercial reservoirs need to be pumped much more frequently because they get more use. Every few months is a good rule of thumb, but you can work with your technician to find out how full the reservoir is and what kind of schedule suits your business’ needs best.

Fiberglass and Plastic Septic Tanks: Inspections

During the regular maintenance visit, the technician will examine the reservoir and all components. If any wear or broken parts are noted, you’ll be given the information you need to act on it, so you can correct the issues before they become a problem. Real estate inspections are also performed by our partner technicians. These differ slightly in that they generate an independent report that the buyer and seller of a property can use to ensure that the unit is either in good condition or indicate what needs to be repaired for the sake of transparency and negotiation.

Fiberglass and Plastic Septic Tanks: Repair

The reservoirs rarely need any kind of repair, with the exception of when people forget that their tank is below ground and damage it from above. However, sometimes lids, filters, or baffles need to be replaced. When there’s a backup or other issue with the unit, it usually originates in the main line or the leach field, which our technicians also manage.
