I have a similiar problem, albeit lower to the ground than yours. One is a
septic filter that has to be cleaned out once in a while. The other is the
septic tank riser. I am thinking either 1. the fake boulder thing, 2.fake
wishing well, with hinge mount on one side to lay it over and clean the
filter or 3. lighthouse (or you name it) with same hinge treatment. Either
of these would have to be built as light as possible for easy layover and of
course a lock pin on the opposite side to secure it. Just some thoughts I
have had. Good luck and let us know what you did.
BTW my two risers are within a foot on each other. Whatever I cover it with
must be oblong or oval or rectangle. One is 36" dia. the other about 24"
dia. Guess I could set an old truck topper over them ? :-)
Evening Septic Experts!
It's the perfect late summer evening, and I am sitting out on my deck
looking at my beautiful yard.all except the for the septic tank riser
that is sticking out 24 inches about the ground! It looks like a
fricking missile silo!
We just got done with a house remodel where we added a few rooms and
had to get the septic system / field enlarged. We had to move the
field and it was a tad above the elevation of the tanks, so they did a
L(ow) P(ressure) D(istrubution) system.
The septic tank riser is on the second tank that gets pumped out to
the field, and in addition to what is some PVC plumbing inside of the
riser running down into the tank, there is also a electrical box
mounted on the side of the riser.
So I can't stand looking at the thing, and it's smack dab in the
middle of my kids football field.
What are my options for reconfiguring (electrical? plumbing in the
riser?) so I can put this stuff below / in the ground?
