Portable restrooms provider in Sonora, CA near me? One of the main reasons people hate porta potties is because of an assumption that they are always “gross”. They smell bad, are dirty, unsanitary and bad for the environment. The truth is that porta-potties – or portable washrooms, porta johns or porta-loos – can be a great, safe and clean alternative when there is no real washroom available. The main differentiator between clean and welcoming porta potties and the undesirable dirty ones is the care, maintenance and upkeep of rental porta potties. Here are 5 tips to keep your rented porta potties pristine and clean for your entire project, event or festival.
Foothill Sanitary Septic; driven by our philosophy to never waver in our integrity and honesty and commitment to provide outstanding workman ship, will not perform an inspection without pumping the tank first. The cost of a tank replacement could range between $4,500 to $8,000, so we make sure the job is performed correctly. If we can’t provide a complete evaluation, it is not reasonable or proper to do so. We inspect for signs of any inflow and infiltration. All tanks, risers, inlets and outlets must be water tight as per code. Firstly, if a tank is not water tight, waste water can leave the tank and go straight into the ground without any treatment. Secondly, if waste water can go out, then ground water can come in (this is what is known as I&I).
The most common cause of a failed system is overloading it. This can be caused by the consecutive use of high-volume activities such as laundry, showering, and running the dishwasher. Space out their usage as well as follow water conservation efforts year round. This is particularly important during heavy rain, which can quickly overwhelm a drainfield on its own. Also common are blockages, which can cause pipes to be clogged and the drainfield to overflow. To prevent this, avoid flushing anything besides the three Ps (pee, poop, and toilet paper). “Flushable” wipes and FOG (fats, oils, grease) clog pipes so should be thrown in the trash. Avoid the use of a garbage disposal which can improperly break down debris. Read even more information at visit foothill portables.
Greywater from washing machine, sinks and showers contains soaps designed to kill bacteria (clean and disinfect things) and thus discourage optimal septic tank function. You want to encourage helpful good bacteria (digesting anaerobic cultures) to grow in your septic tank and organically treat the waste, not kill helpful bacteria with detergent laden graywater. If allowed by local building department, it is best practice to divert household greywater to a separate leaching area.

Excessive water use can cause a septic system to fail. To reduce the possibility of a failed septic system due to excessive water usage, following a few water saving guidelines will reduce the amount of water entering your septic system and reduce your water bills. Flush toilets only when necessary and don’t use them as wastebaskets. Install high-efficiency toilets. Check for leaky toilets and faucets — even a small leak can waste up to 200 gallons of water each day. Install water efficient shower heads and take shorter showers. If you have a dishwasher, only run it when it is full. Use proper load settings when doing laundry. Don’t leave the faucet running when brushing teeth or shaving.
