Advantages of Installing a New Septic Tank
There are benefits to installing a new septic tank. Some of the top advantages can include:
- More affordable than other options: Installing a new unit can be more affordable – and convenient – than other methods of eliminating wastewater through a public sewage system. Adding a unit to your property can be more cost-effective than paying a monthly bill over time.
- You need a sewage system: You need a form of a sewage system on your property. The alternative to a septic tank is an outhouse – which is not convenient for anyone, not to mention unsanitary.
- Fewer clogs: When you install a system at your home, you are likely more aware of how to properly use and maintain it. This can include being more careful about what you put down the drain and what food you are disposing of down the sink.
Steps To Installing a New Septic Tank
When you hire experts to install a new septic tank, you can expect the professionals to take the following steps:
- First, they will remove the old tank and make room for the new one.
- Next, they will transport and install your new septic tank.
- After the tank is in place, an inspector will check to ensure the work was performed correctly and is up to code.
- Lastly, the tank and the plumbing will be covered and the area will blend in with the rest of your yard.

Types of Septic Tanks
There are many types of septic tanks you can select for your property. Some common types are:
- Concrete: These are durable options that can last for decades.
- Steel: These typically last around 25 years before they start to rust and corrode.
- Fiberglass: These don’t tend to crack like concrete or steel. They are easier to install because they are lighter.
- Plastic: These tend to be durable, lightweight and cost-effective options.
- Aerobic: These are powered by electricity and are more expensive than other types of units. However, they can be more effective than other options and last for many years.
