House built in 1966. I located and uncovered the septic. I have a few questions about it.
Will there be another cover at the outlet like on new tanks or did they build some with just one back then?
I'd like to install some sort of manhole-like access cover, so I don't have access for future sludge pumping since there will be a driveway over it. What is the best way to do this?
I believe it is rated for being driven on. Is there any markings on it that will confirm?
The current lid is just a slab of concrete with a couple rebar handles. It doesn't fit all that well. Dirt can filter through the little cracks. Should I do something about that? If so, what? I suppose if I can make some sort of manhole down to it (it's about 30 inches below grade) then I won't have to worry about dirt, but I will have to worry about the smell...
