If your home or business is not attached to the municipal sewer system, a septic tank provides the waste management you need. Although underground septic tanks are designed, built, and installed to be very durable and resilient, every tank has an expiration date. The good news is that you can extend the lifespan of your septic tank to save money on tank repairs and new tank installation in the future.
