Concrete Vs. Plastic Tanks

Learn about Concrete Septic Tanks from Galcon Precast in Duncan

Galcon Precast Ltd works with a number of concrete septic tanks and products. There are many benefits to concrete septic tanks versus plastic ones. Pre-cast concrete septic tanks and cisterns have been the accepted standard for well over 40 years for a variety of reasons. These include:

  • Concrete septic tanks outperform plastic by significantly reducing installation and backfilling costs.

  • Plastic tanks have to be filled with water while slowly backfilling with pea gravel at the same level as the water in the tank (as recommended by the manufacturers).

  • Concrete septic tanks are a MUCH stronger product and will not lose their shape over time or when cleaned out.

  • Concrete septic tanks are environmentally friendly products.

  • Concrete septic tanks can be made a lot larger than plastic or fiberglass tanks.

  • Concrete septic tanks hold heat longer which increases the growth of bacteria helping to break down the influent entering the tank. This provides a lot cleaner effluent leaving the tank and entering your septic field.

  • The weight of a concrete septic tank is also an advantage. This eliminates the possibility of the tank floating in areas with a high water table.
