Both Concrete and Poly Septic Tanks have advantages and disadvantages. Below you’ll find some of the comparisons that can help make the best decision for your needs.
Durability: Concrete Septic Tanks tend to be much more durable than Poly Septic Tanks. This is specifically in regards to the weight that they can handle on top of them.
Lifespan: Assuming that you’ll care for both tanks properly, you can expect a lifespan of approximately 40 years for concrete, and 30 years for poly.
Environmental Resistance: Concrete Septic Tanks are less susceptible to changing soil conditions, growing tree routes, compaction, or other factors.
Maintenance: Based on the factors above, Concrete Septic Tanks can require less ongoing maintenance than Poly Septic Tanks.
Cost: Concrete Septic Tanks cost more to purchase and install than Poly Septic Tanks.
Installation: Concrete is heavier and less maneuverable than plastic which leads to longer installation using heavy machinery.
