Are you buying a septic tank in the near future? Should you buy concrete or plastic? Not sure which is best for you? As there are different reasons for considering each type of septic tank, you should understand the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Plastic Septic Tanks

The Advantages: There are many advantages to using a plastic septic tank over a concrete septic tank, which include, but are not limited to:

  • Plastic septic tanks are very resistant to cracking, unlike concrete.
  • Rusting is a non-issue.
  • As plastic weighs less than concrete, it is much easier to get a plastic septic tank into the location for installation.
  • A plastic septic tank is more cost-effective than a concrete septic tank.
  • Plastic septic tanks can be water-tight and corrosion proof.

The Disadvantages: There are many advantages to using a plastic septic tank over a concrete septic tank, which include, but are not limited to:

  • Plastic septic tanks tend to have lower effluent levels, which may be discovered after a tank is opened for pumping.
  • If not installed properly, a plastic septic tank can “float” to the surface of the ground.
  • Because plastic is such a light-weight material, it can be damaged at installation.

When is a plastic septic tank appropriate? Plastic septic tanks can be the right choice when they are permissible in your state and when cost is a significant consideration. In the end, you must decide if a plastic septic tank is best for your project.

Concrete Septic Tanks

The Advantages:

  • Because concrete septic tanks are heavy, there is no chance of floating, unlike plastic septic tanks.

The Disadvantages:

  • Concrete septic tanks are very expensive.
  • These septic tanks can crack under extreme circumstances.
  • Because concrete is heavy, it is very difficult to install.
  • Though concrete septic tanks are very durable, they can crack and are more susceptible to leaks.

Septic Tank Cleaning: The Basics

If your septic tank is experiencing any of the following, it’s time for a cleaning:

  1. Noticeable odor near septic tank;
  2. Backed up septic tank;
  3. Clogged septic tank;
  4. Dirty septic filter;
  5. Drain field unusually dry.

It is important to clean your septic tank on a regular basis. Septic tanks should be cleaned at a minimum of every three to five years, depending on usage, according to the Department of Health and Safety. Things that affect how soon your septic tank should be cleaned include:

  1. Household size. The more people that live in your home, the sooner your septic tank will need to be cleaned to keep it working effectively;
  2. Septic tank maintenance. Take great care to ensure that only toilet paper and normal sewage get flushed. This will not only lengthen the time between septic tank cleanings, but will also extend the life of your septic tank.
  3. Garbage disposal usage. The more you use your garbage disposal and what you put in it can also affect how often you have to clean your septic tank. Do you dispose of a lot of hard, greasy materials? If so, you could be drastically increasing the frequency of septic tank cleanings.

Think cleaning your septic tank is a do-it-yourself job? Well, think again! Not only is it a very dirty job that most DIY-ers wouldn’t dream of doing, it actually requires a trained and skilled septic tank cleaner to do it effectively. One of the top reasons this is not a DIY project is that it usually involves finding the hole to your septic tank. In a few cases, that might actually involve excavation equipment.

Causes of Septic Odor

One of the most common complaints about septic systems is their odor. While septic tank odor is not noticeable in a properly functioning septic system, there are numerous problems that can cause an odor — especially if your system is not adequately maintained.

There are a few different cited causes of septic system odor. One reason why you may smell an odor coming from your septic system is due to blocked plumbing vents. When plumbing vents are obstructed for one reason or another, the plumbing traps can become dry causing an odor which will back up into the home. Once the plumbing vents are cleared the odor will usually cease to exist. The drains can be cleared either by using store bought blockage clearing items or calling a plumber to come aid in the job.

Another cause of septic system odor relates to cold weather. In cold weather where frost or ice is present, the plumbing vent can become blocked. This blockage can propel the sewer gases back up through the drain and into the home which causes a bad odor to be experienced by the homeowners.

Surface runoff as well as ground water may also be the cause of a septic system odor. This occurs quite often when high amounts of rainfall are seen and the odor is one which can exist both within the home and outside as well. The best way to resolve this issue is to provide an intercept drain to take care of the excess water which will help to prevent too much water from backing up and causing an odor.
