Why Use A Concrete Septic Tank?

When customers purchase a septic tank, they often want to know that it will last a long time and that it will work efficiently without causing them many problems. This is one of the reasons why concrete septic tanks are so highly regarded. While plastic tanks might be a less expensive option, here are the top 5 reasons why you should pick a concrete septic tank.

1. Low-risk installation procedure

Since plastic septic tanks are less robust than concrete, the equipment used during shipping and installation might break them. This damage can result in immediate expenses, such as replacement, as well as long-term costs if the damage causes leaking. Concrete, on the other hand, is practically never weakened during installation and will only break under extreme conditions, such as contact with corrosive and toxic chemicals.

2. Highly durable and hard-wearing

Concrete Septic TanksHeavy rain can be harmful to a plastic septic tank system over time, but the same can’t be said for concrete septic tanks. For starters, since concrete septic tanks are so large, they are less likely to flood when it rains. Second, severe rain can cause plastic tanks to slide around. The weight of a concrete tank also keeps it anchored to the ground, preventing this from happening.

3. Long-lasting

People researching concrete septic tanks may be intrigued to discover that the Romans built concrete that has lasted for countless generations as an impermeable sea defence. If the Romans’ concrete walls can endure storms for this long, then a concrete septic tank will more than suffice for your company or house!

Some polymers are prone to snapping and cracking, yet concrete is so durable and watertight that we use it to construct dams, houses and bridges.

4. Higher effluent capacity

The wastewater and filth in a septic tank, termed effluent, are meant to decay over time. The septic tank must be pumped if it fills up too fast. Concrete septic tanks are much bigger in size, so homeowners with these systems are much less likely to require pumping.

5. No risk of collapse while pumping

Plastic septic tanks, as previously mentioned, are more likely to need pumping at some stage and the tank may need to be completely replaced in the event of complete collapse. Even if they have to be pumped several times, concrete tanks won’t break. So, consider a concrete model when replacing your current septic tank to gain the benefits stated above.
