Long lasting, airtight and leak proof - concrete is the ideal material for a septic system.
Maintenance on concrete septics is only needed every few years!
How to care for your concrete septic tank.
Cleaners: Avoid using heavy cleaners such as bleach that contain antibacterial properties.
Heaving rains: Keep an eye on drain fields. Heavily soaked lawns from rain or melting snow cause the ground to be saturated making it difficult for water to drain from the septic system.
How about those gutters? It is important to point all gutters away from the drain field to reduce the amount of water seeping into the ground.
Inspections: Septic systems should be inspected every three years by a professional to make sure everything is working properly.
If a homeowner notices any of the following they should contact a septic company right away puddles in the drainfield, sewage back-ups or foul smells near the septic tank. It could mean a septic system has failed and it needs to be replaced.

Precast Concrete Storm Shelters
Becker & Scriven’s precast concrete storm shelter provides safety for residents without a basement. Our shelters are typically buried about 4’ in the ground and then backfilled to the top on 3 sides. When ready, we will deliver your shelter right to you and place it where your contractor has prepared the earth.
Buried concrete storm shelters can last decades. Measuring at 7'1" tall, 11'4" long and 6'8" wide, you can rest easy knowing your family will be able to comfortably wait out any storm where damaging winds are involved. When you order a shelter from us, they come with the door, vents, and wood steps to get down inside.
As always, our precast concrete is leak proof. But with our shelters in particular, they also come with a 4” capped vent and a 6” turbine vent. We suggest investing in some solar lighting for the inside and maybe some shelves or chairs to make waiting out the storm more durable.
