Frequently asked questions:

What kind of jobs do you pump?

Any kind of non-hazardous liquid waste. We pump car wash pits, granite sludge pits, cutting tables, septic tanks, shop sumps, grease traps, storm drains, lift stations and canyon work including holding tanks for cabins.

How far in advance should I schedule my job?

1 or 2 weeks before you need service is ideal. If you have a tank that needs to be pumped in the Fall, please call early to get on the schedule.

What kind of payments do you accept?

Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, payment by check or cash is always nice!

What should I do to prepare to have my septic tank pumped?

You need to know the location of your tank and the lid needs to be exposed (not opened, just exposed) before pumping.

What if I do not know the location of my septic tank?

You can call the county health department for a diagram of your septic system.

How often should I have my septic tank pumped?

In a residential household, once every 3-5 years.

I recently had my septic tank pumped, why would it back up again?

You could be in an area with a high water table where ground water seeps into your tank, (most often happens in the Spring as the snow melts).

Another possible reason could be that the drain fields are plugged and need to be jetted.

How often should I have my cabin holding tank pumped?

Once or twice per year​ depending on usage. If you are occupying your cabin through the winter months, it needs to be done in the Fall.

How often should I have my grease trap pumped?

In most cases, regular maintenance is quarterly. We can place you on a scheduled maintenance program to keep your business running worry free!

I just had my grease trap pumped, why is it backing up?

The lines going to or from the grease trap are plugged. You need to call a drain cleaner to run the lines.

How do you charge for car wash pits, shop sumps and cutting tables?

We charge per truck load plus tonnage.
