Septic Systems More Than Just a Modern Convenience

Septic tank pumping

Septic services are required in a variety of situations, from individual households to concert venues. In addition to septic tank pumping, services such as bulk waste pick-up and disposal and hazardous waste disposal are also vital septic tank services.

Household Septic Systems and Maintenance

On average, households use 70 gallons of water per person every day. In order to keep toilets running, it usually takes between 25% to 30% of a household’s daily water usage.

Household septic tanks need to be inspected and pumped on a regular basis. In general, it is recommended that they should be inspected a minimum of once every three years and pumped every three to five years. This does, however, depend on several factors:

  • The size of the household
  • The size of the septic tank
  • The total amount of wastewater that is generated,/li>
  • The volume of solids in the wastewater

When households believe that their system may not be functioning properly, it’s important to contact a septic service for an inspection. In some instances, minor repairs may be required while in others, a larger system or a new system may be needed.

Construction Sites and Portable Toilet Usagr

When buildings and other structures are being constructed, repaired, and/or renovated, portable toilets are needed on site. The basic formula for the number of portable toilets needed is one for every seven construction workers. This is taking a 40-hour work week into consideration.

Currently, there is a considerable amount of construction underway. Since experts project that this industry will experience further growth, the demand for portable toilets will also increase.

Entertainment Venues and Portable Toilet Usage

At entertainment venues such as outdoor concerts, the basic formula for portable toilets is usually one for every 60 people. If these venues also serve alcohol, then this number should be increased by 13%. It’s interesting to note that when portable toilets rather than permanent bathrooms are installed at entertainment and other venues, that approximately 45 billion gallons of water can be saved every year.
