Septic Tank Risers Information Rochester NY

Installing septic tank risers can make it much easier for you or your technician to access your belowground reservoir, but they don’t come standard with most system installations. This is because access is needed so infrequently that many business owners and homeowners simply prefer to have the whole thing hidden from sight for aesthetics. At Septic Tank Pros Rochester NY, our partner technicians are glad to include them from the onset and can retrofit them at any point down the line, provided your unit is in good condition.

What Do Septic Tank Risers Do?

Normally, reservoirs are buried underground and the access ports must be located and excavation performed before pumping or an inspection can be done. Septic tank risers are like pipes, generally made from PVC, that connect to the manholes on the reservoir and extend to ground level. Locking covers are attached to the top for safety.

What are the Pros and Cons of Installing Them?

Deciding whether to add them on is a personal choice, and you’ll find some of the pros and cons below.

Pros

  • Access to the reservoir is instant
  • No more digging or the added expense of digging
  • You’ll always know where your unit is located

Cons

  • The covers can be unsightly
  • The install costs money

What’s Involved in Installing Septic Tank Risers?

Interestingly, most municipalities consider this installation a change to the unit and, as such, they require a special permit to add them on. Our partner technicians are familiar with all the local codes and will obtain any necessary permits in advance, so you stay compliant with the law. During the installation, the top of the reservoir is cleared of soil and the existing covers are removed. Cement covers can be left on top of the reservoir and be closed up with it or can be removed entirely. During this time, children and pets should be kept out of the area, to ensure nobody falls in. Our partner technicians work fast to minimize the danger and are careful to keep the area clear for safety. Once the area is clear, the septic tank risers and lids are attached in place and the top of the reservoir is covered in dirt again.
