Maintenance Tips That Will Come In Handy For Portable Toilets

Portable toilets are useful for sites that don't have traditional bathrooms nearby. If you have some around your site and want them working great and remaining pleasant to be around, you want to perform these maintenance steps. 

Have Waste Professionally Removed

There are a lot of things you can do to take care of these portable toilets, but one step you want to avoid is removing the waste inside. You need an expert to handle this because of the professional sucking equipment that is required for a thorough clean.

A portable toilet service company can come out with the appropriate trucks, with tanks and sucking equipment. Waste will be removed quickly and safely, which is a relief to you because you won't be forced into a more difficult process trying to do this yourself. 

Scrub Walls Thoroughly

Over time, dirt and other residues can collect on the walls of portable toilets. Not only do they make these toilets look like a place you don't want to be around, but they can cause odors to develop. You don't want odors to develop because then getting rid of them can be difficult.

Get in the habit of thoroughly scrubbing all of the walls inside thoroughly. You don't have to do this with your hands. Instead, you want to get a specialized mop that allows you to easily reach all areas for a complete scrub. Also, use a strong commercial cleaner so that it's easy to remove built-up residues. 

Always Have Toilet Paper Loaded

Probably the most important thing inside a portable toilet is toilet paper. It will be required more often times than not so you want to be good about always having some loaded inside every portable toilet that is in your possession.

To help with this, you can analyze how often you run out of toilet paper. You can then develop a re-filling schedule that supports your toilet paper demand and then you won't have to worry about having a low supply and people being upset. 

If portable toilets are around your worksite and they're used quite regularly, maintaining them is important to keep them working over the months or years that they're in use. Figure out which maintenance steps are appropriate and perform them often so that you're not put in stressful complications with portable toilets ever.

Finding Issues With Your Septic Tank

Do you know how to find and address issues with your septic system? Neither did I until about three years ago. My wife and I had purchased this lovely home in the middle of the mountains, and it relied on an aged underground septic system. We struggled with problems like overflowing toilets and bad smells for a few months until we realized that it could be due to the septic tank. Fortunately, a friend of ours came out and showed us how to identify problems and get them addressed. I want to teach everyone a thing or two about septic tanks, so that you don't struggle like I did.
