Riser Installation for Easier Maintenance of Septic Systems

Most U.S. states require that risers be installed on upgraded or new septic systems. For once, here’s a government mandate that is actually beneficial! Did you know that your septic tank is one of the most expensive features of your property? Well, it is – and it’s also probably the most misunderstood system of your home.

In America, it costs an average of $15,000 to buy a septic system with a lifespan of 15 to 20 years. Now, add on interest to the purchase price, then divide by the estimated number of years it will last. The answer tells you that you’re paying around $1,000 a year to own it.

The first benefit of riser installation is visual. Every time you see the cover, you’re reminded that you have a septic system. Okay, so you’re not keen on the idea of an ugly, heavy concrete cover in your yard. The good news is that modern-day risers and covers are made to blend in with their surroundings, and they actually look quite attractive.

The old type had riser rings weighing hundreds of pounds, plus covers weighing up to 80 lbs. Today, riser rings usually weigh less than 30 lbs. and the covers less than 10 lbs., making installation and servicing much easier.
