Key considerations when installing a concrete septic tank

Before having a septic tank installed, it's advisable to consult with local authorities or septic system experts to ensure adherence to current regulations. Additionally, routine inspections and maintenance after installation will ensure your septic tanks' long-term functionality and efficiency. Let's look at the advantages and disadvantages of concrete septic tanks


  • Durability - Long lasting and fire resistant. 
  • Cost-effective - low maintenance requirements
  • Non-Biodegradable - Concrete does not degrade or deteriorate due to the contents of the tank
  • Insulation - Concrete has inherent insulation properties to help maintain consistent internal temperatures within the tank.
  • Resistance to ground movement - Concrete tanks are heavy and do not get affected by the soil conditions or vehicles driving over the land.
  • Environmental impact - Concrete is an environmentally friendly material as it does not leach chemicals or toxins into the surrounding soil or groundwater.
  • Customisation - Can be manufactured in various shapes and sizes to fit specific site and capacity needs.


  • Initial cost- Concrete tanks are often more expensive than plastic tanks.
  • Weight and transportation - They require heavy machineries like cranes or trucks for installation so the site needs to have clear access.
  • Cracking or leaking -. Despite being durable, concrete can develop cracks over time due to shifting soil. These cracks may lead to leaks
  • Cost of repair - Repairs to concrete tanks can be expensive, especially if a significant crack or structure issue develops.
  • Longevity Concerns- In some environments with aggressive soil conditions or high groundwater tables concrete tanks may deteriorate faster than expected.
