Prices have gone up.

I bought mine online in 2005. I think I paid around $600

I'm in Southern California.

Call a septic tank sewage removal service, dig around your tank, drill 4-holes with a drill big enough to put chains on it, lift with a back hoe (rent one) or use someone you know, or hire a backhoe operator 125.00 per hr. no more than 2-hrs, then go to lumberyard and purchase a polyurethane one standard is 1000 gal., place in place where other one was, then connect both ends, cover dirt......about 1/2-1/3 cost if you do it your self not hard at all.

where I use to live it also depended on if your septic field meet current regulations because when redone it had to be upgraded or before sold. This was in a lake community not a city but state regulations applied.

Be sure the new system is at least 50 foot from any water wells.

A few years back a dear friend of mime almost died from walking across the top of her septic tank and it gave way.

She was trapped in there until her daughter came looking for her.
