Frequently Asked Septic Tank Questions

1. Can I install a septic tank under a driveway?
  •   No, installing the plastic septic tank under a driveway is not permitted and will void the warranty. Do not locate tanks beneath driveways or in the pathway of heavy or vehicular traffic areas.

  • 2. Is there a sand/gravel mixture recommended for bedding/backfill?
  •   Yes, the sand/gravel mixture, commonly called “pea gravel” mixture is recommended.

  • 3. Can I use a septic tank above ground?
  •   Underground plastic septic tanks are designed for below ground use only. Using the tanks above ground can result in deformation of the tank. It is far more cost-effective to utilize an above ground storage tank that is specifically designed for above ground use and applications.

  • 4. Can hot water be stored in plastic septic tanks?
  •   Do not subject the tank to water temperature higher than 100 deg F, polyethylene storage tanks have a maximum storage temperature of 120 deg F. Contents with a temperature in excess of 120 def F, even for a short period of time, can weaken the tank’s structural integrity and make it susceptible to deformation and failure.

  • 5. How do you access an underground plastic septic tanks?
  •    Each plastic septic tank comes equipped a manhole access hatches. In addition, risers can be added to the top of the tank providing ground level access. Without a riser you would need to dig up the soil above the manway to gain accessibility.
