Frequently Asked Septic Tank Questions
1. Can I install a septic tank under a driveway? No, installing the plastic septic tank under a driveway is not permitted and will void the warranty. Do not locate tanks beneath driveways or in the pathway of heavy or vehicular traffic areas.

3. Can I use a septic tank above ground? Underground plastic septic tanks are designed for below ground use only. Using the tanks above ground can result in deformation of the tank. It is far more cost-effective to utilize an above ground storage tank that is specifically designed for above ground use and applications.

5. How do you access an underground plastic septic tanks? Each plastic septic tank comes equipped a manhole access hatches.
