risers are extensions of the existing tank lids. They replace
the existing tank lids, bringing the access ports of the
septic tank to, or just below the ground level.
time-consuming, costly digging
access to the tank
quick access for emergency pumping
risers virtually eliminate any digging involved to expose the
tank lids for pumping. Alpha Omega can easily pump most tanks
in less than an hour, if it is equipped with tank risers.
Additionally, in emergency cases, the tank can be accessed
quickly, without delay. Finally, tank risers promote regular
maintenance due to the ease in access.
Omega recommends the installation of two tank risers on each
septic tank, one on each lid. They can be installed
either above the ground or just below the surface.
septic tank lids, that do not extend up through the surface of
the ground, are required to be buried at least six inches
below the surface to prevent gases from escaping. But
tank risers come with a built-in gasket to keep the gases
contained inside the tank, thus allowing the lid to be
uncovered and accessible. We offer risers twenty-four inches
in diameter to allow the tank to be properly and completely
serviced in the most efficient manner.
installation involves adhering the riser to the tank with
concrete, both to strengthen the connection and to prevent
roots and water from entering the tank. They are constructed
of a high-grade, UV protected plastic. However, tank lid
risers are not designed to be driven on, as they can not
withstand the weight of a vehicle.
