Septic System

Septic tank risers are designed to replace existing below-ground concrete, fiberglass, or metal septic tank lids and bring access to the lid to ground level so your tank can be pumped easily, and therefore regularly.

Digging up your yard to gain access to your septic tank for pumping is time-consuming and hard work for either the homeowner or a paid professional.

If you have to do this every 3 to 5 years, it can mean the difference between getting your tank pumped consistently or not. It’s not a job most homeowners look forward to, especially if it means removing and replacing grass, other vegetation or synthetic turf.

Septic risers

While all new septic systems are required to be installed with a riser and lid, we encourage property owners to install septic risers for existing septic tanks. That's because they make it easier for you to inspect, pump, and properly maintain your septic system.

Our risers come with gaskets built into the lids to keep the gases inside the tank. Our risers are 24" in diameter to meet the current codes and still allow the tank to be properly and completely serviced. In both the above-ground and below-surface installations, tank risers replace the existing tank lids. They are concreted onto the septic tank itself both to strengthen and prevent roots from entering the septic tank and are constructed of a thick, strong, UV-protected plastic.

Here's why this simple addition can make a significant difference:

Without a septic riser, accessing the septic tank involves digging up the soil and any softscape (living elements such as grass or other ground covers) covering the tank, which is not only labor-intensive but also time-consuming. With a riser in place, service professionals can easily access the tank without any digging, streamlining the maintenance process.
Cost Savings
The labor required for excavating the soil each time the tank needs pumping or inspection can add up quickly. By installing a riser, homeowners can significantly reduce the labor costs associated with septic system maintenance over time.
Septic Risers

In conclusion, for homeowners looking to simplify septic system maintenance and ensure its longevity, investing in a riser is a smart choice. It's a small addition that can make a big difference in the efficiency and reliability of your septic system.
