Septic Pumping in Snohomish

Back in the one room school house days, most schools had what might be considered an early version of the composting toilet. A large pit was dug in the ground – well, two pits actually, because there was a facility for girls and one for boys, a pretty good distance apart – plus being a decent amount of distance from the school house. Sometimes these pits were lined with concrete or plaster of some sort to keep the contents from seeping out over the winter. Over the top, a little house was constructed, and filled with a row of toilet seats for students to use. By springtime, neither one of those little houses was a fun place to visit. During the summer, a fat-bellied little tanker truck would come out, and the sewage would all get pumped out of the pits. They would get flushed out, and a coat of lime would be sprayed on make them smell better so that they were all ready for the next school year. The little houses would get a nice new coat of whitewash or paint so that they would look pretty at the beginning of the fall semester.

Fortunately, septic systems have gotten to be a little bit more sophisticated than those little buildings. No one has to trot out in the cold to shiver in an unheated outhouse these days, but septic tanks still need pumping now and then. Superior Septic Services has a modern version of that chubby little tanker truck, ready to take care of your septic pumping in Snohomish.
