Here are some key tips to know about septic tank installation:

- Septic Tanks Last Between 15-40 Years: The lifespan of your tank will depend on what it’s made of (metal or concrete) and how well you take care of it. One of the best types of tanks is an aerobic tank, which offers cleaner effluent and a long lifespan.
