Septic Tank Design
Hello Jason here from Septictank.co.uk In this video, I’d like to show you the evolution of septic tanks over the years, how they’ve evolved and changed. This first tank you can see here is called a concrete septic tank and they became popular in the 1950s 1960s after the war. They look like a small bomb shelter and they are called a concrete septic tank because that’s what they are. They’re made from concrete, they’re hollow inside, but they’re very, very, very robust. They’re very strong, and they typically last about 200-300 years. They’re the best septic tank you can buy. They’re not as popular now in the United Kingdom as they were, say, up to the 80s, because they were replaced by an onion shape, septic tank. Now these onion styles, septic tanks became very popular in the late eighties and the early nineties, because a company came up with the design of making septic tanks from fiberglass.
That was quite a revolutionary idea and a very revolutionary design. You could now just go to your builder’s yard and buy a fiberglass, septic tank and install it. The disadvantages are is that they’re very tall. The small fiberglass septic tanks are typically 11 to 12 foot in height and they’re very wide. So, you need a very big digger to install them. On top of that, you have to backfill around them with concrete, which can set you back anywhere from 800 to a thousand pounds. So, whilst they were very popular when they were new on the scene in the late eighties, early nineties, they have now been replaced by low profile, shallow septic tanks.
Technology just moves on every 10, every 20 years. And these low profile, shallow septic tanks are fantastic. They’re half the height of the onion style septic tanks because of their shape and their design, they’re very, very strong. So, they do not need any concrete when you are installing them. As you can see, they’ve got a rib design, so typically these low-profile septic tanks only take about 40 to 50 minutes to install with a small digger.
