EPISODE #43: WATERTIGHT PRECAST CONCRETE TANKS… FROM WALLS TO JOINTS TO RISERS

February 23, 2022

In this episode of The Precast Podcast we dive into watertight tanks from the walls to the joints to the access risers!

The need for holding liquid in an assembled precast concrete structure is an increasingly necessary task. Infiltration can overload an onsite septic system and exfiltration may cause contamination of surrounding soils and possibly a drinking water well. A lot goes into manufacturing a high-quality precast concrete tank and you do not want to forget about proper field installation and ensuring joints are resilient. We thank Sam Lines for sharing his knowledge and helping us provide quality educational episodes to our industry!

Shea Concrete Products is excited to announce our 7th “Virtual” Technical Engineering Seminar that is available through our Podcast (The Precast Podcast) and will allow for an online library of technical seminars that professionals can access to gain industry knowledge and stay current with professional development credit hour requirements.

This “virtual” seminar opportunity allows for participants to obtain two (2) individual professional development credit hours as follows:

  • 1.0-Professional Development Hour (PDH)
  • 1.0-“NHDES Subsurface Systems Bureau” Credit Hour (NHDES Subsurface Designers & Installers)
