Septic Risers

Making access easy.

PRODUCT

Septic Risers

Many septic tanks are completely buried underground making access for maintenance difficult. Without good access or knowledge of the septic tank’s location, regular maintenance is often not conducted and it is easy for the tank to allow untreated sewage into the disposal area. The septic tank access saddle provides easy access to the septic tank. It fits over the septic tank and raises the access cover to ground level so that the tank is fully accessible. Once the new saddle is installed there will never be a need to dig up the tank ever again! The new septic tank access saddle makes it easy to find, open and access septic tanks to pump out the contents and quickly re‐seal the cover. The covers are gas tight to contain odours and water tight to prevent effluent leaking from the septic tank and water from entering the septic tank. The superior lightweight alternative to the traditional concrete riser weighs only 22kgs and tested to withstand 1.5 tonnes…

The Problem

To function properly and prevent costly repairs, septic tanks require regular maintenance—including periodic desludging by a pump out truck. Many septic tanks are completely buried underground, making access for maintenance difficult. Without good access or knowledge of the septic tank’s location, regular maintenance is often not conducted and it is easy for the tank to allow untreated sewage into the disposal area. This can be a very costly and inconvenient exercise.

The Solution

The septic tank access saddle provides easy access to the septic tank. It fits over the septic tank and raises the access cover to ground level, so that the tank is fully accessible. Once the new saddle is installed there will never be a need to dig up the tank ever again!

Made Tough

The septic tank access saddle, and associated sealing ring and lockable cover are made from composite resin—a composition of fibre glass and fillers formed under great pressure and heat. This makes the saddle and cover stronger than steel (weight‐for‐weight), meaning it will withstand a lifetime of use. The composite resin construction also ensures the access cover is light enough to lift with one hand. Weighing only nine kilograms, the cover complies with Work Health and Safety guidelines by allowing a single worker to easily lift and remove the access cover to inspect the tank. The turret which is the pipe that sits on the saddle and brings the lid to the surface is made from 12mm fibreglass mains sewer and water rated pressure pipe and can be easily cut to any height. The cover is secured by three stainless steel bolts and cannot be removed without a socket spanner, making it very safe for children.
