septic tank lid cover

Every septic tank I have ever seen includes at least one, usually two, and sometimes three access ports (manholes) built into the tank. The ports are generally covered with cast iron manhole covers, occasionally concrete. Are you saying your septic tank does not have any access ports, and you are wondering how to install such a port in an existing tank? Or does your tank have the ports, but you are looking to save money by not purchasing a manhole lid?
