Our precast concrete personal septic tanks give New England homeowners a reliable solution for wastewater management systems. Precast concrete septic tanks from Shea are strong, watertight, green, and suitable for any residential waste products management system. These precast septic tanks are produced to meet your required measurements and are often installed at your home as well.
Septic tanks are put into two chambers. The chambers are divided with a baffle wall structure. Solids are maintained in the first chamber, and liquids then go through the baffle in to the second chamber and to the percolation area. With septic tanks nearly all wastewater treatment occurs in the percolation area, which is important that percolation areas are created properly. You can read more about how septic tanks work here.
Weight: A solid concrete solid makes our tanks extremely heavy, this ensures the fish tank will never float” to the top as time passes, like some lighter weight tanks can do. Floating is a big problem, specifically from plastic tanks. These models require anchoring prep during the installation process because they're naturally buoyant. Cement doesn't have this problem, the material is heavy and stays put for a long time.
On-site wastewater tanks discharge a clarified effluent by settling stable wastes and protecting against buoyant material from being discharged from the reservoir. Precast concrete on-site wastewater tanks operate effectively where municipal sewers are not a choice. Precast cement provides durable watertight cover of watersheds to ensure surface and surface normal water quality.
With a specific gravity of 2.40, precast concrete on-site wastewater tanks resist buoyant forces much better than tanks created from other materials. In comparison, fiberglass has a specific gravity of just one 1.86, while high-density polyethylene (HDPE) has a particular gravity of 0.97. On top of that labor-intensive and time-consuming on-site planning is often required to anchor structures created from more buoyant materials.
