Old septic tanks can be a 'hazard'

If you live in a rural area of Northern California and you have a private septic system, is your Septic Tank a Hazard?

The type of "hazard" I am referring to is will the tank or the top of the tank collapse?  Not all septic tanks are concrete tanks with concrete tops.

Many older septic tanks were built out of Redwood and many older concrete tanks have Redwood 'tops'.

How long has it been since your tank was last pumped?  Do you know where the tank is.  Do you know what material the tank is constructed with?  Is the cover on your tank wood?

One of the best reasons to have a septic inspection when you purchase a home in this area that has a septic system is, those questions will be answered.
