Does a septic tank have to be vented to begin with?

I was wondering that myself Bud.
I thought maybe the four houses i've had, were all done incorrectly.

I've had several septic systems myself and don't ever remember seeing one vented.

Well there was one one time but that was because I drove my Bobcat over it and the lid broke in. Don't think for a minute that won't scare the hell out of ya.

septic tank venting


In most jurisdictions there is no vent at the septic tank but in some jurisdictions a vent is required at the far end of the leach field.

This is in addition to vents for drain lines in the house.
