Concrete Septic Tank Manufacturer
septic tank maufacturer since 1968. We produce the
premier pre-cast concrete septic tanks in the industry
and have added enhancements that make pump

Our concrete tanks are reinforced with
a special grade fiber and steel.
The State of Florida Department
of Health conducts a hydrostatic test once
a year on our tanks.
State of Florida Health Department routinely
performs concrete quality tests. This test shows
them what grade concrete is being used. It is
a test for strength and compression some call
it a “break test.”

We cast the tank's legend number showing who
we are and the code given to us by the state.
This way the department of health inspector
knows who built the tank.
Understand just not anyone can build a pre-cast
concrete septic tank without going through a
number of state requirements.
Our concrete septic tanks are classified as
Category #3. This meets certain standards for
septic tanks. Our tanks are designed to last.
By manufacturing our own concrete septic
tanks we control all of the quality that
goes into a great product. Our concrete tanks must
meet the State of Florida 64E requirements. This is
the code and guidelines that the State has established
for all of those in the business to follow. We cannot
deviate from these rules.
But Wait! Good news for the consumer. There
is one big important difference between our tanks
and our competitor’s tanks for you the consumer.
• All septic tanks manufactured after 1998
must be a two compartment tank and have a filter installed
in it in the second compartment.
• You as a homeowner must clean this filter
at least once a year. The purpose of this filter is
to trap any other nutrients or debris that may leach
into the drainfield. This filter also keeps the drainfield
from clogging up. With this filter working properly
you are providing a cleaner water to work itself down
into the aquifer. Please let’s all try and save
• With our EXTERNAL EASY ACCESS FILTER PORT
located on the outlet end of the tank, all you have
to do is unscrew a 5” diameter cap, put on a
pair of rubber gloves, reach down inside the filter
port and pull the filter out and wash it off and reinsert
• With our competitors most of their filters
are located under the manhole cover of the tank.
• What this involves is you must locate this
24” diameter 100 pound plus lid. Then you must
dig it up; find a devise to lift this heavy lid up
and move it to the side, exposing the filter.
• Then you must reach over this big 24”
opening into the tank. PLEASE DO NOT FALL INTO THE
TANK. Remove the filter and clean it. Then lift the
big heavy lid and put it back in the place. You should
properly seal this lid as once it has been opened
roots and dirt is very likely to begin going into
the tank. Cover the lid with your sod again and DO
IT ALL OVER NEXT YEAR.
• Or you can call your installer each year
and pay a service call and have them do it for you.
Another added expense that is not necessary. Which
would you prefer?
