What Is It?
At first glance, it may just look like a well in your backyard but that plastic or concrete rising vertically from the ground is actually a septic system riser. A riser provides easier and more practical access to your septic system. It is high enough to reach ground level and provides an accessible outlet to the tank. Without one, it can be really difficult and time consuming to locate and inspect the septic tank which is buried underground.
What Are the Benefits of Installing A Riser?
Septic tanks should be professionally inspected at least once a year and cleanings should take place every couple of years depending on water use in your home. Finding and digging up the lid to your septic tank can be a pain. Many homeowners don’t even know where to start looking for the lid to their septic tank. Installing a riser onto your septic system will allow for easier access to your underground septic system thus ensuring maintenance is less time consuming and less of a hassle. The easiest way to access a septic tank system is through a septic tank riser. Installing a riser will be a long-term investment and savings will add up considerably. If you are interested in having a riser installed or just need a consultation, our professionals at Metro Septic Pumping are happy to provide service and a free quote for your septic tank system.
What Is the Downside of Having A Septic System Riser?
The pros definitely outweigh the cons when it comes to have a septic system riser. For some homeowners, the visibility of a septic system riser is not very appealing. This can be easily remedied by installing the riser just a little above ground level where grass and soil can cover the top. At Metro Septic Pumping, we’ll make sure you are satisfied with not only the function but also the appearance of your septic system riser. Overall, a septic system riser is a great one-time investment that will save money and provide convenience when it comes to the maintenance of your septic tank.
Overall, having a professional install a septic system riser will lower your septic system costs over time. Without a riser, your septic system could be “out of sight, out of mind.” This is why some states have made it mandatory that homes install a riser to their septic systems. This rule actually benefits both the government and the homeowners because septic systems can be the most expensive mechanical system of a home and are usually the least monitored. So, it is important to consult a professional service provider like Metro Septic Pumping to make sure that your septic system riser is installed properly and is aesthetically pleasing to you. The best way to ensure easy inspection and maintenance of your septic system is to make a one-time investment in a riser. Once installed, there is no need to upgrade or change the riser. It will last as long as the life of your septic system.
