If you’ve just moved into a house or if you haven’t had your tank pumped in years, you might run into a rather odd problem; you might forget where the tank is. It might seem like something that rarely happens until it happens to you but it’s fairly common. The septic tank is out of sight and out of mind. As a result, you don’t think about where in your yard your tank might be. Fortunately, there are several ways that you can find it. A quality septic tank service will be able to find it for you if you don’t want to look; otherwise, you can do some looking for yourself to figure out where it might be.
Look for the Cap
Your septic tank is buried somewhere in your yard. Typically, the tank is buried and the only sign of it is a concrete cap. The concrete cap will likely have a nozzle for pumping the septic tank from time to time. Even if you don’t find it, just knowing approximately where it might be will help a quality septic tank service in Bethlehem, PA. They’ll be able to find it using many different methods.
Look for the Sewage Line
If you have pipes that run above ground or even come out of your house above ground before going underground, you can often find your septic tank that way. You just need to find the pipe leading out of your house; typically, it will leave somewhere out of the backyard. The septic tank will likely be in a straight line from there. A quality septic tank service will usually be able to trace your plumbing to find it.
