    Default any septic repair pros???

    so working on septic tank today- dug up the tank for access to the cleanouts and dug to locate the distribution box- found the cast iron pipe connecting them was rusted and split in 2- made for some damp nasty soil underneath the pipe...... so anyway the distribution box end towards the tank has been sitting in wet soil for awhile i guess.... well the concrete has deteriated to the point that the whole corner has disintergrated and is missing or laying in the box...... so my real questin is can i form a new end then pour new concrete in to beef this up or will this not be sealed well enough? i really dont want to replace the box but if i have to then ok because i havent come this far to have more trouble later........

    It sure sounds like you need a complete reconstruction of your sewer line and whatever is involved.

    If you feel that you can't do it, contact local plumbers for estimates.

    Replace the box and also replace the cast-iron pipe with plastic.
