I recently had to locate both lids on both septic tanks here on our property. One tank had to be inspected by Plumbers for county requirements, the other I just figured I would have it cleaned while we were having the other one done. Sometimes cheaper that way. Anyway, I used my metal detector to locate the rebar handles on the lids. Then dug them out. One lid was 31" down but because the rebar gave a good signal on the detector, I was pretty confident on the location.
Hope you were able to find your lids okay. Good to have both sides of a tank cleaned out every few years.
