Aging septic tanks can cause problems by allowing untreated wastewater to enter the groundwater supply. Also, another problem is that water can enter the septic system and overflow the drainfield and cause premature failure. We have seen where seals have deterioted overtime and cause tanks to be leaky.
Properly sealed tanks and structurally sound septic tanks are needed to protect our environment and provide proper treatment of the septic tank effluent. If you have a septic system that leaks it can damage your drainfield or pollute waters for drinking and recreation. The responsible thing to do is to have your septic system inspected for potential problems and avert them before they occur.
SWS can replace your septic tank with a new HDPE tank that doesn’t crack or leak like concrete tanks. These tanks are an injection molded tank that is stronger than other poly tanks. The tank pictured was installed in Zephyrhills, Fl just outside of Tampa, FL.
If you are in the Tampa Bay Area and you have a leaking or aging septic tank don’t hesitate to call the septic experts at SWS @ 813-785-0500.
