Yes an access panel - one of the stair steps maybe - is a good idea. I've never seen a tank being cleaned and ignorant of what kind of issues blocking free access (the way it is now) for a septic service might cause. (Like double price for difficult access issues?). @Nealtw - IDK how deep it goes down. I'm thinking I will need to uncover the entire pipe and tank to make sure I don't cause problems with placement of my deck posts. Yes waterproofing before raising the ground level is part of the plan.

Good plan about exposing the pipe and while you are at that install a new 2 way clean out near the front post and cap and bury the old one. 2 types of fittings.
