How does the trench or pit work? The oil and water are separated in a trench or pit. When you wash your car, some of the used water flows off the driveway into a trench or pit. Waste from food preparation begins to flow into the trench or pit from your home. The water flows down into the waste, and a layer of sludge forms at the bottom of the trench or pit. You want to avoid pouring this recycled water on your lawn, so you need to hire someone to pump out that sump hole every few years. Someone will need to clean the sludge. Either the owner can do it, or they can hire a septic company. Metro Septic Pumping has all the equipment necessary to handle the job! Let's talk about how this job gets done.
Trench or pit pumping is a common service that a septic company provides. This is when a pipe is installed in the ground, and wastewater flows down into the trench when a car is washed at a car wash. Over time, sludge will build up in the trench or pit. This can make it difficult to remove the waste, which can cause health concerns for both animals and people.
We at Metro Septic Pumping are trained professionals who know how to remove this sludge safely and efficiently. We have state-of-the-art equipment that allows us to pump out waste from your trench or pit without problems!
Trench or pit cleaning is performed by a certified technician who inspects the tank before beginning the process. Once the inspection is complete, the area is cleaned thoroughly with high-pressure water hoses to remove any dirt or debris that may be present in the tank.
The technician then inserts a tube into the cap on top of your septic tank and attaches it to an air compressor. This air compressor provides suction power for removing wastewater from within your tank. The suction hose is connected to a vacuum pump which sucks out all waste from your tank, taking care not to damage any pipes or fixtures inside. Once all of the waste has been removed from within your tank, it is pumped into a waiting container for disposal at an Metro Septic Pumping facility that specializes in septic service equipment disposal.
The process is very simple, but it is only for some. If you are going to do this job yourself, follow these guidelines:
Ultimately, trench or pit pumping is a safe and eco-friendly way to dispose of waste from your car wash.
