Concrete Vs. Plastic
Precast concrete tanks have been the accepted standard for well over 40 years for a variety of reasons:
- Precast concrete tanks offer the best value by outperforming plastic in both installation and backfilling costs
- Precast concrete tanks do not require precise hand backfilling with pea gravel while filling with water to equalize pressure
- Precast concrete tanks do not lose their shape
- Stick and stones will not puncture a precast concrete tank
- Precast concrete tanks will not “float out” or “pop-up” from high ground water tables
- Precast concrete tanks are environmentally friendly. The influent in the first chamber of a septic tank goes through an anaerobic process which breaks down the solids. The bi-product of this process is effluent water. Precast concrete tanks with their porous concrete walls create more heat in a tank by aiding in the attachment of bacteria to the side walls of the tank and increasing bacterial growth in the tank. To a precast concrete tank owner, this means less freezing tanks and fields in Alberta’s harsh environment.
