If you live in a more rural area, you may have tanks installed on your property. Tanks have many uses, from septic systems to storing propane to collecting rainwater. Each tank system varies in terms of size, placement, and overall style. For example, propane tanks are sized to your home’s propane needs, and larger tanks may be buried underground, while smaller tanks may be placed beside your home. Rainwater tanks may also be above or below ground, but septic tanks are always placed in the ground and in a leach field.
With so many different tanks available, you will find a wide range of associated costs. This includes labor costs because each tank type has its own set of installation guidelines and professionals. Labor costs for propane tanks start at around $500, prices for rainwater storage tanks are about $45 to $75 an hour, and septic systems have labor costs upwards of $4,000, depending on the site.
