Septic Tanks



Concrete Building Supply Co. is well known for its complete line of quality steel-reinforced concrete septic tanks. Our standard 1000-gallon concrete septic tank is the anchor in our lineup. We recently introduced a full line of "Environmentally Friendly" septic and ledge tanks. Environmentally friendly tanks are guaranteed watertight with no seepage into or out of the tank. We now produce only the 1,000 gallon single compartment septic tank in the non-environmentally friendly style. Although this tank does not have the EIGHT major benefits of the environmentally friendly tanks, it does comes with these features; 5,000 psi steel reinforced vibrated concrete; inlets and outlets are fitted with a two, three and four inch combination low pressure  Polylok pipe seals;  concrete inlet and outlet baffles; tank joints are presealed with one inch by one inch  ConSeal butyl sealant. CS-101.

The septic tank conditions sewage so it may be more readily percolated into the subsoil layers, thus protecting the areas absorptive ability. Three functions take place within the tank to provide this protection:

Removal of Solids - Clogging of the soil with tank effluent varies directly with the amount of suspended solids in the liquid. As sewage from the building enters the septic tank, its rate of flow is reduced so that the larger solids sink to the bottom or rise to the surface. These solids are retained in the tank, and the clarified effluent is discharged to the distribution system.

Biological Treatment - Solids and liquids in the tank are subject to decomposition by bacteria and natural processes. Bacteria present are of a variety called anaerobic since they thrive in the absence of free oxygen. This decomposition or treatment of sewage under anaerobic conditions is termed “septic” hence the name of the tank. Sewage, which has been subject to such treatment, causes less clogging then untreated sewage containing the same amount of suspended solids.

Sludge and Scum Storage - Sludge is an accumulation of solids at the bottom of the tank, while scum is a partly submerged mat of floating solids and grease that form at the surface of the fluid in the tank. Sludge, and scum to a lesser degree, will be digested into a smaller volume. However, no matter how effective the process, a residue of inert solid matter will remain. Space must be provided in the tank to store this residue during the interval between cleanings; otherwise sludge and scum will be scoured from the tank and may clog the disposal field.
