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 pumping services for restaurants, schools, condominium associations and car washes. And not just septic tanks!
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 system check to ensure the mechanical components of your septic tank 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. We send our clients a reminder card when the next pumping visit is due.
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.
Car washes on public sewer have a grit pit that traps sand and sludge that washes off the cars. These specialized tanks must be pumped regularly. Because they can also contain pollutants like road salt and petroleum by-products, they must be hauled away to a designated recycling facility.
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.
