Something that baffles people who need to have their septic tank installed is, "What are my options when having a new septic tank installed?" It's a simple question that Atlanta Septic Tank Pros can answer for you so we're putting up a series of post dedicated to address this question.
When an installation is done efficiently, it can serve a family or business for generations. In the wrong hands, it can immediately become a major problem and lead to a problematic system that breaks down almost instantaneously. Here's one thing to learn when you are having a septic system installation.
You Can Select the Type of Tank
Nowadays, you can have a tank made out of practically anything, though local guidelines may have constraints on particular options.
Plastic: The cheapest choice is plastic. It lacks in toughness and its buoyancy might be an issue depending on your water table.
Steel: Very few tanks are made from steel these days because it has the tendency to corrode, but it's more durable than plastic.
Fiberglass: This is among the more pricey options, but it's lightweight and is easy to install. It also resists deterioration from the earth settling and such, but it isn't going to endure if you drive a vehicle over it and there are some reviews about it not handling methane gas well.
Concrete: The well-known choice is concrete. It is extremely strong and will last decades. Some concrete tanks last one hundred years or more. On the downside, it is very heavy, which makes the septic tank installation more difficult, and it in certain cases cracks as the soil around it settles.
