Patio with septic access?

Posted by Needing help in horse country on January 29th, 2001 08:56 AM

I live in a rural area and am looking to install a
patio (20' x 17') off of my deck. Unfortunately, my
septic tank is actually located under part of the
same area that I have sketched for my patio! Yikes!
Knowing that the septic tank is accessed at both ends,
removeable pavers appear to be my best option. My wife
and I are expecting our first child in March and are
trying to find the least expensive patio solution.
Although I don't have any quotes yet, I have read that
having a third party come in to lay the pavers can be
pricey. Has anyone run into this problem before?
Are there cement/aggregate solutions to this problem
(i.e., lift out squares within the patio)? I'm not
sure which way to turn and thought this would be my
best start. Don't know if this will work, but
here's a pic of my dilemma:
