What Does Septic Tank Service Remove?

The septic tanks on your Napa property aren’t something you like to think about very often, but you want to have that tank serviced on a regular basis so there aren’t problems that can be very costly and inconvenient. When you schedule regular septic take services, there might be some pump-outs that occur. That process can remove compounds that get stuck in the tank and keep it from working properly. The procedure takes several steps and removes a number of things form the tanks.  

Sludge 

The sludge from the bottom portion of the septic tank is one of the first things that comes out during this procedure. It includes things that keep bacteria from breaking down any waste that comes into the tank. Once that sludge is out, the tank is able to operate more efficiently and effectively.  

Grease 

You don’t want to put grease down your pipes, but sometimes, stuff gets through. Grease and soaps can build up in septic tanks and they can be cleared out when the tank is pumped out. It might take a little pressure to get them to break free, but the tank will be in better shape once they are gone.  

Synthetic Materials 

Any number of synthetics can collect in a washing machine and those items won’t break down very quickly or very easily. Pumping out the septic tank will force materials like these out of the system, so it can run better.  

Accidental Disposals 

Most people accidentally drop something down the toilet or drain at some point or do so because they don’t know they shouldn’t. Things like cotton swabs, feminine products, cigarette butts and many others won’t break down and will clog things up down the line. A pump-out will clean those items out of the system before they build up and cause an issue down the road.  

When Do You Need Service? 

Most septic tanks need to have regular service every year or two to make sure that things aren’t collecting within the tank, building up, and causing issues. Get that regular service and you shouldn’t have to worry about things as much between. But if you see your drains running slow or your toilets starting to back up, call for an extra service because there might be something that is building up in the tank faster than your home or business can handle.

Portable Toilet Placement

When you need Fairfield portable toilets for an event, a construction site, a remodeling project, or any other reason, you will need to place them just right to make them accessible and operational. No one wants to use a portable toilet sitting on uneven ground, for example. When you hire professionals to come in and place the rented portable toilets, they will be able to place them in the best spot for serviceable use. However, it’s good to look around your location and have an idea where you want them so you can plan other features around them. Here are a few guidelines that professionals will use for the placement process:  

Dry And Level Locations 

The first rule you will follow is that you will want to place portable toilets on dry, level locations only. If the ground isn’t dry, the units can sink into the grass, mud, or whatever else is beneath them. And no one wants to go into a tilting portable toilet. It’s a danger no one wants to take on.  

Accessibility 

This is something you can definitely think about in advance. Where will your guests be located? If the area is small, the portable toilet can go anywhere. If things are large and spread out, you will want to strategically set up the units in locations throughout the grounds. 

 

The Right Number 

You will also want to decide how many portable toilets you will need for your location. How long will people be there? How many people? Will there be beverages served or are they allowed to be brought in? You will want to have all of that thought out so you can rent the right amount and place them in the right locations.  

Service Abilities 

You will also need to place the portable toilets so that the service trucks can get in and out to deliver them, pick them up, and service them while they are there. The portable toilets have to be places where the trucks can access them. They can’t be so remote that they can only be carried in.   

Permits 

Some events and locations take certain permits, especially for public venues. You will want to make sure you have those permits lined up before you start the rental process so you don’t find yourself in a bind later.  

If you still aren’t sure where to place Fairfield portable toilets within your location, that’s okay. The professionals at American Sanitation Inc are here to help. Give us a call at (707) 554-8258 and we can listen to the details of your event, worksite, or remodeling project and let you know how many portable toilets you will need. Then, we can come out and take a look at your location and help you determine just where to set the units, so they will be accessible and safe. Stop by and talk about your needs further at 1729 Action Avenue, Napa, CA 94559. We want to help you get everything lined up so everyone at your site has just what they need for the duration. 

Do You Want Portable Toilets For Remodeling?

Bathrooms get a lot of use and they can wear out over the years. If you have a bathroom that desperately needs to be remodeled, eventually you may take the project on. When that time comes, how are you going to get by? Portable toilets in Vallejo are one thing to think about. Here are some other options to consider:  

Close Down The Business 

If it is your business that is remodeling, you might have to close down during the remodeling. You could maybe tell customers you don’t have a working bathroom in certain situations, but not if you run a restaurant. And it would be hard to staff employees for any length of time without a working bathroom. While you don’t want to lose any business, closing might help you maintain your reputation.  

Go To A Hotel 

If you are remodeling your only bathroom at home, you don’t want to go without for the length of time the project could take. You may have to spend a few nights in a hotel, which will add to the expense of the remodeling job.   

Work With Others 

If you want to stay in your home or keep the business operating while the remodeling is done, you may have to work something out with someone nearby. If you have friendly next-door neighbors, perhaps they will let you come take showers and use the facilities. Likewise, if there’s a business next door, they might welcome your employees.  

Get Portable Toilet Rentals 

If none of these options sound suitable, you might consider renting portable toilets for your business or even for your home. While you might not like the idea of a portable toilet, there are luxury options that feel just like a real bathroom. You wouldn’t want to send guests in a restaurant out to a portable toilet with no sink, right? The luxury options feel like real bathrooms because they flush, have sinks with handwashing capabilities, and even a garbage receptacle. That is a one way to satisfy both customers and employees without making anyone feel like they are in an outhouse. The rentals can be for a few days, a week, or even longer.

How Many Portable Toilets Do You Need?

When you are hosting an outdoor event without any nearby facilities, you will need to consider bringing in Santa Rosa portable toilets. But is just on enough or do you need several? You will want to think ahead with care so you don’t end up with desperate individuals in one long bathroom line. Here are some of the items to consider.  

Number Of Attendees 

How many people do you expect to attend your event? A couple of dozen? Hundreds? More? The number of people who will be at the event will help you determine how many portable toilets you need. If you’re only having 50, you could get away with one portable toilet. If you are having 1,000, you’ll need at least 5 or maybe even more.  

Event Hours 

How many hours long is the event you’re hosting? If the event is short, just a couple of hours, you won’t need as many portable toilets as you would if the event is a whole day. Increase the number of toilets the more hours the event runs.  

Service Options 

Are you serving food and beverages at the event? If so, you’ll want to ensure there are enough portable toilets and you will want more than if you are not serving anything. Even if you don’t serve drinks, if people are allowed to bring their own, you’ll need to accommodate them afterwards.  

Hand Wash Stations  

Some portable toilets come with sinks and handwashing capabilities. If you get standard portable toilets, they do not and you will want to add one handwashing station to every four portable toilets to give people the ability to clean up.  

Weekly Portable Toilets 

If you are running a jobsite and not an event, you will want to think about how many shifts are being worked on the site and with how many people. You can usually accommodate 10 workers during a 40-hour week with just one portable toilet. If you have more than that, it’s important to calculate and add more toilets to the site to meet their needs.
