How does the effluent pipe connect to a concrete septic tank?
Asked Sep 21, 2010, 08:44 PM
I have a concrete septic tank on some land I have purchased and the effluent pipe entering the septic tank is broken so I need to replace it. The pipe entering the tank does not seem to be attached to the tank -- it just runs into the hole. Is this how its typically done? Should the pipe be coupled to the tank in some way or does it just need to run through the hole, and how far should it run through the hole? Thanks!
