They are what removes the waste that collects inside portable restrooms and to ensure they can complete this job effectively, they need to be cared for just right. You won't struggle if you approach this special type of maintenance using these tips.

Know What Normal Operation Sounds and Feels Like

In order to effectively tell if there is a problem with your portable restroom service truck, you need to know what normal operation feels and sounds like. Then you can tell if there is a difference in performance and respond quickly before something major happens that requires an expensive repair.

When you first get the portable restroom service truck, get used to how it handles, pumps, and sounds. Once you know how this truck should work when driving and pumping waste from restrooms, you'll know exactly when something is off. 

Inspect Tires Regularly

The tires are key for how your portable restroom service trucks perform because they provide grip and support the entire weight of the tank and corresponding components. The added weight can cause problems with the tires, which is why you need to check them regularly.

Start with a basic visual inspection to see if they're in great shape structurally and have plenty of tread. Then take their pressure readings to see if they have enough air. If they don't, make corrections before driving the portable restroom service truck. These simple inspection steps can ensure you don't experience a stressful flat or blowout. 

Flush Vacuum Pump

For your portable restroom service truck to pump waste effectively from restrooms, the vacuum pump needs to be working perfectly. It will for a long time if you take time to flush this component on a regular basis.

This fluid flushing essentially gets rid of sludge and other build-up that has collected inside and around the pump over time. Removing these things through flushing will help your vacuum pump work efficiently on a consistent basis and that's key in getting the most out of it.

Keeping Our Plumbing On Point

After dealing with a debilitating sewage flood a few years back, I decided to turn my attention to the proper care and maintenance of our septic tank. We had never spent much time trying to keep things in good shape, but we didn't want to deal with another sewage problem. To make things right, we met with the septic tank professionals and talked about how to keep our system in good shape. We worked hard to check for problems, and we called in the professionals at the first sign of trouble. Ever since then, we haven't had any issues. This blog is all about keeping your plumbing on point.
