Our septic partners specialize in quality septic tank installation, ensuring that the job is done right and, with the exception of regular maintenance, that you won't have to worry about your system for decades.
Many Types Tanks are AvailableThese days, you can have a tank made out of almost anything, though local regulations may have restrictions on certain options.
Plastic: The least costly option is plastic. It lacks in durability and its buoyancy could be a problem depending on your water table.
Steel: Very few tanks are made from steel these days because it tends to corrode, but it's more durable than plastic.
Fiberglass: Just as there will always be arguments about which soda type is better, people will debate the merits of fiberglass versus concrete. Fiberglass is one of the more pricey options, but it's lightweight and is easy to install. It also prevents damage from the earth settling and such, but it isn't going to survive if you drive a vehicle over it and there are some reports about it not dealing with methane gas well.
Concrete: The iconic choice is concrete. It is incredibly strong and will last decades. Some concrete tanks last 100 years or more. On the downside, it is very heavy, which makes the septic tank installation more difficult, and it sometimes cracks as the earth around it settles.
