Septic Tank Problems

This week I'm having my septic system worked on.  When I called for a periodic draining they found a problem with the tank. It may have somehow cracked.
Septic tanks can last about 25 to 40 years. Ours is 40 years old so I guess it must be time.

They dug up our tank and distribution box.  The distribution box is further back in the photo.

Here is the tank with its two lids.

This is the distribution box which empties into the drain field.

Below is a short video showing how it works.
It's sort of gross so skip it if you think it will bother you.
