I have lived in this home for about two years. I am not having septic tank problems but, out of curiousity, I removed the septic tank cleanout cover, and I am baffeled at what I found.
In the third and last photo, the tank cover is visible to the left ant is is clear that the sanitary to is open at the top--suds visible--
Do I need to further inspect?? p
ect further.

hahahahaha nice pun :laughing: that is the inlet baffle to the tank. it forces the solids to the bottom of the tank so that they can separate properly
Just to set things straight--I have worked on and installed a few septic tanks in my 65 years.:thumbsup: I know what the pipe is for!:yes:
What I am conserned with is the fact that there seems to be no covering for part of the tank. It looks like dirt has fallen into the top around the entry pipe.
I hope I do not have a potential problem with what looks like an improperly installed riser.
I have never dealt with a riser but I know what it is for.
