Riser and Riser Kits
Septic tanks are typically placed below ground level. This requires that they must be unearthed in order to be serviced. The way to combat this problem is to install a riser kit. The riser itself is a ring that is meant to extend the tank access port to ground level. An adaptor ring should be placed where the riser comes into contact with the tank. A sealant should be placed on the bottom of the adaptor ring to ensure contaminants cannot enter the tank. A number of risers will stack on top of each other and the adaptor ring until they reach ground level. A domed or flat septic tank cover should be placed upon the stack of risers. This system will create a barrier to protect the tank from contaminants and allow easier access to the tank.
It is important to keep in mind that most tank access ports will be square, but the riser will be circular. There are a few ways to make sure the circular riser will fit around your square or rectangular access port.
The first method is simply to measure the diagonal distance across the access port. The diagonal distance across the access is the largest distance that a riser will have to encompass.
The following equation can be used to get the diagonal distance of a square access port. Let “a” be the length of one side of the access port. Then let “b” be the length of the side perpendicular to side “a”. The following equations will only give you the actual diagonal distance when the length of “a” is equal to the length of “b”. For instance, A is 12 inches and B is 12 Inches. The user would take 12 and multiply it by 1.141 that gives the user a distance of 17 inches.
The equations above can be used to approximate the diagonal distance of a rectangle. Using the longest side of your access port in the before mentioned equations will provide a distance that is greater than the actual diagonal distance of your rectangular access port. Only risers with an inner diameter that is greater than the diagonal distance of the access port should be used.
There may be times when you are unable to measure the distance the riser needs to cover, but you still know the dimensions of the access port. This method will require that you know the length of each side of your rectangular access port. You may recall Pythagorean theorem form your geometry course.
