Septic risers are extensions that are added to the top of a septic tank to make it easier to access the tank for inspection and maintenance. They are typically made of plastic or concrete and are used to raise the top of the tank to ground level or above.
Septic risers are an important addition to a septic system, as they make it easier to access the tank for pumping and other maintenance tasks.
Without risers, the tank would need to be dug up in order to access it, which can be time-consuming and expensive.
Septic risers come in a variety of sizes and styles to fit different types of tanks and installation requirements. They can be round or square, and may have a removable lid or a permanently attached lid.
Some risers also have built-in ladders or steps to make it easier to access the top of the tank.
Septic risers are typically installed by a septic tank professional, who will ensure that they are properly fitted and secured to the tank.
It is important to maintain the risers and keep them in good condition to ensure that they are able to effectively protect the tank and provide easy access for maintenance.
