So you know you need a septic tank and you know why. The remaining questions remain: Which type of septic tank? And, is the price for concrete worth it?

Well, don’t take our word for it. 

We already know that concrete septic tanks have higher effluent levels than septic tanks that are made of plastic. Septic effluent is what flows from the septic tank to the drainfield, where it goes for its final treatment and disposal. 

The more effluent your septic tank can hold, the less likely it is to push waste into your drainfield prematurely due to capacity constraints. You want to know that all of that waste entering your drainfield has been treated as properly and thoroughly as possible! 

 Other sources that weigh the pros and cons of precast concrete septic tanks versus other materials point to a concrete septic tank’s weight as a positive. This leaves no possibility for the septic tank to float, which you cannot say for a plastic septic tank. The precast concrete also makes for a long-lasting septic tank that is extremely durable.

It was even the first material that septic tanks were made out of in France.

In the early 20th Century, it was believed that steel was the superior material because its durability. There was just one factor that professionals did not consider: How acidic human waste is, and how easily steel corrodes. Since the 1960s, concrete and plastic have competed for most-common materials to construct septic tanks.
