You may not realize it, but a pumper truck is a very versatile piece of equipment. Of course, Maznek Septic provides septic pumping services to residential clients. But as licensed septage haulers with the state of New Hampshire, our pumper truck also provides commercial pumping services for restaurants, schools, condominium associations and campgrounds.
Residential Pumping Services
Septic tank maintenance is the core of what Maznek Septic does. During our scheduled tank pumping visit we clean out the tank and provide a three-point septic inspection to ensure the mechanical components of your septic system are in good working condition:
- Inlet and outlet baffles
- Effluent strainer (when applicable)
- Effluent pump operation (raised leach fields only)
Solids and sludge can mean disaster to a leach field. After checking the solids-to-water ratio in the tank, we pump the tank halfway and use a “crust-buster” tool that stirs the solids, ensuring a thorough clean out.
We also clean the effluent strainer and pump chamber if applicable. We send our clients a reminder card when the next pumping visit is due.
Should you leave a little sludge in the bottom of the tank after pumping to help with microbial breakdown of new solids?
- Some septic pumping companies are telling their customers that it’s good to leave a little sludge in the tank to “re-colonize bacteria.” THIS IS FALSE! All the bacteria you need for the tank will be deposited on your first toilet flush!
- Septic pumping services that use this tactic are charging their customers to remove a full tank; but they are charged by the gallon at the wastewater facility to dispose of it.
Our VAC truck is also very good at removing clogs in septic lines! In some cases, it’s faster and more efficient than an auger snake or even a sewer jetting tool!
Commercial Pumping Services
Commercial Septic Tanks
Condominiums and similar associations often have more complicated septic systems that require some expertise and knowledge. Maznek septic provides an advantage in that we are evaluators through GSOWA (Granite State Onsite Wastewater Association). Our large-capacity truck can handle most condominium septic pump-outs; our thorough tank inspection can save the association money if a condition is caught before it becomes a problem.
Restaurants wash a lot of pots and pans. Every restaurant is required by law to have a grease trap. A grease trap, also known as an “interceptor,” has a baffle system similar to a septic tank. Fats, oils and grease are trapped as they cool, preventing them from going down the drain. Most grease tanks should be pumped out every three months or sooner to prevent a sewer backup.
RV Septic Pumping Services
Sometimes it’s just not convenient (or cost-effective) to drive your RV to the nearest Waste Water Treatment Plant to empty your RV septic holding tank. No problem! Maznek Septic provides RV septic pumping services for both gray and black water septic holding tanks.
Please note: Onsite RV Pumping beyond our standard service area will result in an additional fee
