Some septic tanks or lids are exposed at ground surface, which can be an eyesore. Ever wondered what you can do about that eyesore without causing damage to your septic system? Here are a few suggestions.
Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do about covering your aerobic system’s lids. This type of system should be checked by a professional technician every 4 months, so the lids must be kept exposed and easily accessible.
If you have a traditional septic system, the tank should be pumped every 3-5 years. That means that the septic lids should be accessible every 3-5 years. You can use almost any temporary, movable objects to cover your lids, like:
Remember: whatever you cover the lids with must be moved when the tank is pumped for maintenance. Be sure not to mortar any pavers/bricks/stones together over the lids. When your septic tank requires replacement, everything over the tank will be removed (another reason why it’s important to know the location of your septic tank).
