Trailers and RVs Holding Tank Septic Pumping Services
Professional Septic Pumping And Holding Tank Services For RVs And Trailers
How Do ATrailer And RV Septic Holding Tank Work?
RVs and trailers’ septic holding tanks are designed to break down any and all solid material it contains. It will then be mixed with the flush water, turning them into liquid form. Because of this, it will be easier for the mixed wastewater liquid to pass through the discharge valves when drained.
There 3 types of trailer and RV holding tanks based on the type of water they hold:
- RV fresh water tank: used for dry camping and not connected to utilities
- RV grey water tank: after using the sink or shower, water drains here until dumping
- RV black water tank: sewage holding tank, all sewage goes into this septic tank
How Often Do Your Trailer And RV Need Holding Tank Septic Pumping And Maintenance?
- Septic holding tank capacity
- Number of people
- How much water is used
If you do not use the restroom often with your black water tank and use non-contaminated water in water plants rather than throwing it in your grey water tank, your holding tank can go for 3 weeks.
We highly recommend familiarizing yourself with how your wastewater holding tanks work and monitoring how fast they get full. This is really important, especially for first-timers. Some holding tanks need draining every week, while some need more frequent septic pumping.
What Happens In A Trailer And RV Septic Pumping In A Pump-out?
- Park your RV and trailer as close as possible to the pump. It should be properly aligned.
- Remember to wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty. We highly recommend protecting yourself and wearing gloves.
- Get your connector hose and attach it to the pump station. Then, connect the other end to your RV or trailer's sewage holding tank's emptying valve. Make sure everything fits perfectly to avoid spillage and splatter.
- Open the valve to release the wastewater. The valve is usually located at the base of your black water tank.
- During the draining, you can also rinse your septic holding tank using a hose and connect it to your fresh water tank.
- Lastly, close the valve and remove the connector hose.
Why Is The Gauge Still Saying Full When My Holding Tank Just Underwent Septic Pumping?
- If the RV and trailer have been used heavily but the wastewater wasn't drained or went through septic pumping. The wastewater will be sitting inside the holding tank leading to solid build-up. These solids will not be able to flow and pass the discharge valve. Because of this, it gives the impression that your sewage holding tank was not pumped (even though it was).
- Also, if the tank gets full, solids can cover the gauge sensors which will show a false reading.
