Installing access risers to grade enables easy servicing of inlet and outlet devices and easy access for tank pumping. They also provide an easy means of inspecting or troubleshooting any problems with inlet or outlet lines.
Envirotek Systems always obtains any requisite permits before any installations. In emergency conditions we often can get permission to proceed without official permits and do the paperwork later.
Replacing your Septic Tank for your Septic System
Why would I ever need to replace my septic tank? This is a common question asked by homeowners.
Septic tanks can be in need of replacement for various reasons. If your septic system has a metal septic tank it may have rusted out and be leaking or collapsed. Most metal tanks rust out sooner above the water level than below the water level. Some metal tank tops have actually been completely rusted away for years going unnoticed until someone walks over the top of it caving in the dirt or it collapses on it’s own.
Some concrete tanks can collapse as well. A common misconception is that concrete tanks last forever. They don’t. Hydrogen sulfide and methane gas eat away and corrode the concrete and metal reinforcement in many concrete tanks. Especially poorly vented or non-vented tanks.
We have sometimes been able to prolong the life of septic tanks if we are able to repair them before they are beyond the point of remediation.
Regulations: Reasons why you may need to replace your septic tank
Another reason to replace a septic tank is when the dwelling it serves is undergoing renovation or expansion requiring the removal or upgrading of the existing tank. Greene County and Springfield, MO have regulations and requirements for septic systems if you are renovating or expanding.
If you are remodeling you may think you can just relocate your concrete tank. Don’t waste your time. If you have an older concrete tank, the minute you remove it from the ground it can start to crack and crumble as the moisture starts leaving the concrete. We tried it years and years ago. It doesn’t work.
