How many years does a septic tank last?  – Video Transcription

Mark Ward:

“Most modern septic tanks are manufactured in plastic or glass fibre. Some of the manufacturers give 25-year warranty, but that’s only really because that’s the sort of a guarantee on the plastic material. But typically speaking, the tanks are installed in a concrete surround. So it is a permanent installation.”
