How long do sewage basins (poly) are supposed to last?

I am removing my old one out because it is damaged around the lip and when lifting it up, I noticed it is also broken at the bottom.

Model is JACKEL INC SF24x36 ..... POS brand and POS company

New one is a Zoeller Brand Z311102 .. another POS (it has a flimsy base and I don't like it)

House was built in 1985. There was orange fill around it.
How long are these things supposed to last below grade?

I am thinking about just placing it above grade for easy maintenance.
or building a pit out of concrete around it with some space.
