When septic tank repairs become frequent, or several different issues arise, it may be time to replace the tank. Replacing a septic tank will be a time-consuming, messy, and expensive venture. First, the yard has to be dug up to expose the tank. The tank has to be disconnected from the piping leading to the building and from the leach field. It then has to be carefully removed to avoid the tank completely falling apart, depending on the severity of the damage. The new tank has to be placed on the ground, connected, and covered over. If the tank is too small for the current usage of the building, a bigger tank will have to be installed. That may mean more digging, more time, and a higher cost.
It may be possible to avoid the high cost of replacement in certain cases if Septic Tank Rebuilding in Middletown NJ is a suitable alternative. Rebuilding the tank still, requires digging up the yard, but eliminates the need to remove the tank and replace it with a new one. Areas can be patched, depending on the location of the damage. Cracks can be sealed with polymers and resins, and the tank can be completely cleaned with new sludge and chemicals added for the better breakdown of solids. The cost and time spent are substantial but not as high as a complete replacement. This is typically attempted after drains backup frequently, there is an odor emanating from the ground where the tank is located, or a routine inspection indicates a major problem.
The determination to attempt Septic Tank Rebuilding in Middletown NJ is the result of an inspection of the tank and an assessment of the damage by an experienced technician. Options will be discussed, and free estimates will be provided. It is important to keep in mind that there are times when a rebuilding project has failed, and a replacement then has to be completed. If a tank is over twenty-five years old, it is likely to be just as cost-effective to replace it as to rebuild it. A successful rebuilding will save money and prolong the life of the existing septic tank.
