Concrete Tanks FAQs

Below are some questions that we are asked on a regular basis and feature as part of our Concrete Tanks FAQs

The benefits of using a concrete septic tank are:

One of the first advantages of concrete septic tanks is their size. These tanks can be constructed much larger than their plastic counterparts. Therefore, they are capable of holding larger levels of septic effluent.
Another advantage of concrete septic tanks is their weight. They are much heavier than tanks made from plastic. This increased weight keeps the tanks from floating due to heavy rainfall or ground movement.
Durability is another advantage. Concrete is a very durable material, so the tanks will last a very long time.

The benefits of using a concrete water tank are:

  • Working life will exceed that of metal or plastic
  • Does not puncture
  • Does not taint water with metal or plastic by products
  • Large volume capacities
  • Keeps water cool
  • Concrete is comprised of relatively environmentally friendly materials.
  • Concrete tanks can be buried underground 90-100%, and being underground provides several benefits:
  • It helps to keep the water cool.
  • Because the water in the tank is cool, algae growth is virtually eliminated.
  • The algae growth having been eliminated, you will experience fewer problems with your pumps and valves.
  • The visual impact of buried tanks on your property can be as little as 100mm (that’s the lid) above ground.
