  Trapezoidal Septic Tank

Septic tanks from Ace Roto-Mold, a Division of Den Hartog Industries, feature a trapezoidal, deep rib design and interior baffle system. A custom-molded gasket system locks for a watertight seal. The tank and access covers are manufactured from high-density polyethylene with UV stabilizers, while tank outlet gaskets are vulcanized rubber and access cover gaskets are extruded nitrile rubber. Tanks come with two 24-inch double-wall access covers, which interlock with the tank using three bayonet keys. Covers can be secured with nylon wire ties and do not require metal fasteners for retention. 800/342-3408;

  Uni-Tee Baffle

The Uni-Tee Baffle from Bear Onsite allows upgrading of the effluent filter to higher-capacity, higher-performing filters in any septic system using the polyurethane uni-tee from builder-grade 4-inch screens. This is accomplished by disengaging the locking mechanism, removing the screen and housing, then locking on any available larger-sized effluent filter. This upgrade is possible from finished grade, without confined-space entry, because of the PVC pipe lever attachment on the side of the housing that is used to unlock and remove the smaller housing, then allowing it to be replaced with the new larger one. 877/653-4583;

  Septic Tank Lid

Seal-r septic tank lids from BrenLin Company create a strong seal between the septic tank and the riser, effectively eliminating water infiltration between the riser and the tank. They are made of durable materials, range from 12 to 42 inches, and can be personalized with a company’s information. The 42-inch lid meets growing demand for bigger risers to accommodate new technology equipment. 888/606-1998;

  Water Storage Tank

Flowtite water storage tanks from Containment Solutions feature a watertight fiberglass design between the access collar and the access riser. A watertight enclosure protecting an access opening is the only way to eliminate infiltration and exfiltration contamination, as the access opening is the most vulnerable entry point for contaminants into a water storage system. They are designed to meet AWWA D120, NFPA 22, NSF 61 and IAPMO standards for water/wastewater storage tanks. Tanks are available in various sizes up to 12 feet in diameter, and include fiberglass baffles and other accessories. 877/274-8265;
