    Abstract

    This specification covers monolithicor sectional precast concrete septic tanks. The following materials shall be used for manufacturing concrete septic tank: cement, aggregates, water, admixtures, steel reinforcement, concrete mixtures, forms, concrete placement, fibers, and sealants. The precast concrete sections shall be cured. Structural design of the septic tanks shall be by calculation or by performance. Concrete strength, reinforcing steel placement, and openings shall also be considered in the design. The physical design requirements include: capacity, shape, compartments, influent and effluent pipes, baffles and outlet devices, and openings in top slab. The following tests shall also be done: proof testing, leakage testing, vacuum testing, and water-pressure testing.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers design requirements, manufacturing practices, and performance requirements for monolithic or sectional precast concrete septic tanks.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
