Septic Tank Installation

If a septic tank isn't watertight, water can leak into and out of the system. Usually, water from the environment leaking into the system causes hydraulic overloading, taxing the system beyond its capabilities and causing inadequate treatment and sometimes sewage to flow up to the ground surface.

Water leaking out of the septic tank is a significant health hazard because the leaking wastewater has not yet been treated.
