Portable potty rental services in Arnold, California today? Hot summer days are perhaps the worst for porta potty use. The plastic huts act as a sauna and the heat can make the smell of waste absolutely terrible. Placing porta potties in a shaded space can make a huge difference in both the comfort, appeal and smell of the washrooms. If your construction site doesn’t have a shady spot that is also accessible for service and on a flat, even surface, rented tents can be a solution. Renting a tent to house your porta potty or a handwashing station can help encourage contractors to keep them clean and to actually use them. Shade can make a huge difference.
Foothill Sanitary Septic is a California State Licensed Sanitation Contractor. We provide septic tank inspection services for real estate transactions, mortgage refinancing and for homeowners. For whatever the reason the septic tank inspection is being requested, Foothill Sanitary Septic performs a very complete and thorough inspection. Our inspection consists of a complete pump out of the septic tank or tanks and a timed Load Test to the leach field, sand filter or other type of pre-treatment systems. All components of the system are inspected, no matter what type of septic system.
A typical septic system has four main components: a pipe from the home, a septic tank, a drainfield (also known as a leachfield), and the soil. The septic tank is a watertight box, typically buried beneath the ground, usually made of concrete, fiberglass, or polyethylene with an inlet and outlet pipe. Wastewater flows from the home to the septic tank through the sewer pipe. Sludge (solids) and scum (oil and grease) stay in the tank while the treated wastewater (known as effluent) is released. Find even more details at see the foothill portables website.
Slower percolation rates due to poorly draining soil with clay, bedrock, high ground water, proximity to a creek, or other complications require larger leach fields. There are two methods of calculating the minimum absorption area for a leach field. Traditionally, you dig an eight foot deep test inspection hole in the area of the intended leach field to allow building inspector, or your local engineer, to physically examine the soil and determine its Long Term Acceptance Rate. Or you can have a local soil testing firm perform a percolation test to clock the speed of your soil’s capacity to absorb liquids.
We at Foothill Sanitary and Foothill Portable’s “Stand” for our Flag and kneel for our fallen. My family has a very strong military background with family members serving in every branch of the military. This is why we at Foothill Sanitary and Foothill Portable’s offer a 5% Military discount to all of our vet’s as a small way to say Thank you for “your” service. My motto is from the branch that I served in “Semper Fidelis” meaning always faithful, a motto that we will bring to you.
Don’t build any structures on top of the drain field. Drain fields work because of evaporation. Any structures, including raised decking, will inhibit the rate of evaporation and slow or even stop the process. Don’t allow excess water to enter the drain field. Runoff from roof drains, sump pumps, and other rainwater drainage systems should be directed away from the drain field. Excess water in the drain field can slow down and even stop the wastewater treatment process. If your septic system is giving off an unpleasant odor or you see visible sewage in the drain field, you’ll know right away there is a septic problem. However, there are a few other signs that many people don’t immediately recognize as a problem. Read additional information at Foothill Sanitary.
