Benefits of a Ground Access Manhole Riser

Montgomery Sanitation Services, Inc. Installs Septic Tank Risers

If you have a septic tank, you should consider the benefits of a ground access manhole riser. A ground access manhole riser gives homeowners and maintenance technicians quicker, easier, and less invasive access to the septic tank. Septic tanks are buried underground and a ground access manhole riser provides an above ground access for regular maintenance services.

You may not prefer a visible reminder of your septic tank. However, installing a ground access manhole riser is an investment that will save in the long run. The biggest benefit to there being a riser on-site is it removes the variable to locating and/or excavating the septic tank at every service. For septic system services or riser installations, call Montgomery Sanitation Services, Inc. at (540) 382-2205.


Schedule a Ground Access Manhole Riser Installation

Septic tanks should be pumped and cleaned out every three to five years, if there is not a riser onsite then the septic tank lid will need to be excavated and exposed at each maintenance service. As well as located if the exact location of the septic tank lid is unknown. This can be costly depending on how long the locate and excavation can take as well as if the depth of the septic tank requires heavier machinery to expose.


Risers Can Prevent Accidental Septic Damage

Montgomery Sanitation Services can install a ground access manhole riser with the top access lid above ground. Risers are typically 24-in. in diameter and on average are 2-4 ft. in length. This depends on how deep in the ground the septic tank is. Having a riser will remind you visually of the septic tank location. This can be beneficial to know when planning home additions, like decks or pools. It can also be a reminder of where not to drive heavy machinery and farm equipment. This helps keep your septic tank from damage.
