Commercial Holding Tank Pumping
If you have a holding tank collecting the waste from your business or clients, pumping it out will help you maintain both the sewage system and the landscape around it. Commercial customers across Southwestern Ontario trust GFS to pump out their holding tanks and take their waste away to be properly handled.
GFS Holding Tank Pumping Is Safe and Fast
GFS offers year-round holding tank pumping services so that businesses are never left with a full system at the wrong time. We make sure our trucks do not damage your tank or landscaping, and we operate all our pumping services with proper equipment.
Because holding tanks have to be maintained more often than septic tanks, the frequency can depend on the size of the tank, the number of buildings or occupants on the property, and how much water is used every month. While they should be pumped at least every two years, most holding tanks are pumped monthly or every three months.
How Do I Know When My Holding Tank Is Full?
Many holding tanks have alarms that alert you or your property manager when the tank is full or dipsticks that people can use to measure the amount. If you do not have a working warning system, it’s best to be on a regular schedule to prevent your tank from becoming too full and leaking.
What’s The Difference Between A Holding Tank And A Septic Tank?
Many customers say “septic tank” when they mean “holding tank,” and while both are sanitation systems that collect waste, they handle it differently. Septic tanks let waste run through what’s called a leaching field to help bacteria break down some of its content; holding tanks don’t let the contents do this.
