A septic tank made from concrete has a lifespan of about 30 – 40 years if it kept up on cleanings and maintenance.

If these issues arise another possibility is that the water table has risen too high and there is nowhere for the treated waste from the septic box to discharge causing sewage to flood the backyard or worse back up into the properties drain system.
If this scenario happens, it is not good. If you are far enough out not to have city utilities you also might not have city water, which means you are probably running of a well. If that is the case, be aware that a backed up septic system can flow into the well water causing emergency issues to your health.

Thank you for the comment about a septic tank will usually last around 30-40 years if the maintenance is kept up on. My sister just moved to a home with a septic tank and has never really known what to do to maintain them. I bet she could find a great company near her that can assess the needs of her tank.
