Our Legacy of Excellence

For over half a century, Del Zotto has been at the forefront of manufacturing precast concrete septic tanks, serving both residential and commercial customers across the nation. Our journey is a testament to our unwavering dedication to quality, durability, and customer satisfaction.  Not only does Del Zotto make concrete septic tanks, we are the leading supplier of septic tank forms, to build the tank, for the entire industry.  

Why Watertight Construction Matters

The cornerstone of any septic tank’s performance is its watertight construction. At Del Zotto, we recognize that this factor is not a matter of convenience but a science that safeguards your health, your environment, and your investment. Here’s why watertight construction is paramount:

  • Preventing Contamination: A septic tank that isn’t watertight can allow groundwater to infiltrate, leading to contamination of the stored wastewater. This can result in health hazards and environmental damage.
  • Ensuring Efficient Treatment: A watertight seal keeps the wastewater within the tank, allowing for effective treatment processes to occur. Leaks or infiltration can disrupt the treatment process and compromise the quality of effluent.
  • Longevity: Watertight septic tanks are more durable and less prone to damage. They can resist the external pressures of the surrounding earth, providing longer-lasting performance.

The Science Behind Watertight Construction

Del Zotto’s septic tanks are built with a deep understanding of the science behind watertight construction:

  • Sealed Above the Waterline: Del Zotto’s septic tanks are sealed above the waterline, preventing water ingress and seepage, even during heavy rains or flooding. This extra level of protection is essential for preventing leaks.
  • Durability of Concrete: Concrete, when properly mixed and cured, provides exceptional durability. It does not break down like steel tanks that can rust or fiberglass tanks that can become brittle with age. This durability ensures that the tank maintains its watertight properties over time.
  • Quality Control: Del Zotto manufactures its septic tanks in a controlled environment, enabling the monitoring of materials to ensure consistent quality. This rigorous quality control process guarantees that every tank is built to the highest standards, contributing to its watertight construction.

Choosing Del Zotto as your septic tank supplier means you are investing in a product that is not only watertight but also designed to stand the test of time. Our septic tanks are environmentally friendly, robust, and built to meet or exceed all local and state requirements.

Innovations in Watertight Design

At Del Zotto, we consistently go the extra mile to stay at the forefront of watertight septic tank design:

Choosing the Right Del Zotto Septic Tank for Your Needs

Maintaining Watertight Integrity

While Del Zotto’s septic tanks are built to be watertight from the start, a few small maintenance items help it to remain so throughout their lifespan:

  • Regular Inspections: Periodically inspect your septic tank for any signs of damage or wear. Look for cracks, leaks, or signs of damage to the tank or its components. To protect your septic tank, avoid damaging or disturbing the risers with mowers or driving over them with heavy equipment, tree roots, frost, and harsh chemicals that can damage them.
  • Professional Pumping: Schedule occasional septic tank pumping with the advice of your system designer.This will help remove accumulated solids and ensure the tank continues to function efficiently.
  • Monitor Water Usage: Be mindful of your water usage to avoid overloading the septic system. Conserving water can help prevent excess strain on the tank.
  • Keep Drain Fields Clear: Ensure that the drain field associated with your septic system remains clear of any obstructions to allow for proper water absorption and treatment.

In the world of septic tanks, watertight construction is not just a feature but a fundamental necessity. When you choose Del Zotto, you’re not just getting a septic tank; you’re getting a legacy of excellence that will serve you and your community for years to come.
