Septic Tank Cleaning and
Portable Toilet Pump Out Services
At VIP Portable Sanitation we serve Miami-Dade, Broward, and Monroe Counties providing septic tank cleaning services for residential and business. We also provide pump-outs (emptying waste tanks) to RV’s, portable toilets, portable restrooms, and restroom trailers. We are licensed and insured in the State of Florida and our technicians are ready to assist 24/7.
Septic tanks require pumping every 2 to 5 years and scheduling your service can easily be done by contacting us via the following methods:
- Office: 305-207-2881
- firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
- You can also reach us via text: 24/7 number: 305-239-0012
Our pumper truck trailers are equipped with the most modern pumps to ensure the service is properly conducted. We recommend that once the service is complete, please record the date the pumping was completed, to know when to schedule the next pump out. We can also put you on our schedule for peace of mind and send you a reminder when the next service is due.
There are several indicators that determine when your septic tank is due for service/pump-out:
- Odors coming from near the septic tank
- The septic tank appears to be clogged
- The septic filter is dirty
- The septic tank is backed up
- Drain field dry
In order to maintain your septic tank and increase its lifetime, here are suggestions for you to follow:
- Decrease your water usage
- Avoid using chemicals such as drain cleaners and water softeners
- Reduce the use of the garbage disposal in your kitchen
- Wall Recessed Towel Dispenser and Waste Receptacle
Using chemicals in your residence or place of business, destroy bacteria inside your septic system. The septic tank needs bacteria to protect it.
What Are Septic Tanks
and How Do They Work?
Septic tanks are made from concrete or heavyweight plastic and typically have a capacity of 1000 to 2000 gallons.
There are two chambers in the tank, separated by a partial wall. Waste flows from the house into the larger chamber. Solids settle to the bottom, and liquids make their way over the partial wall into the smaller second chamber. Naturally occurring anaerobic bacteria digest the solids, turning them into water, carbon dioxide, and a small portion of indigestible material.
Do You Have A Septic System?
Look for a large, rectangular, or cylindrical lump that covers the drain field. If you can clearly see a single hill close to your home, a septic tank is likely to be there.
Your neighbor has a septic tank. Chances are if your neighbor has a septic tank, your home will have one as well. All neighborhood homes may have a septic system also.
In rural areas where each property consists of several acres, you are more likely to have a septic system.
Call your local water management agency and ask whether your address is connected to the sewer.
The blueprints, building permits, and property records for your home will show whether the structure has a septic tank or has ever had a septic tank.
How To Find Your Septic System?
- Looking at your home’s “as-built” drawing.
- Checking your yard for lids and manhole covers.
- Contacting a septic system service provider to help you locate it.
