Carter’s Septic Tank Service and Portable Washrooms use a portable PRO-VAC Industrial Pump-Out Station designed for the most demanding liquid pumping applications. This intelligent pumping solution is best suited for locations where a large vacuum-truck hose is unacceptable – such as remote indoor jobs that are tough to reach.
Carter’s Septic Tank Service and Portable Washrooms had to use some creativity in handling certain pumping situations. "We came up with the Wee Vac when we started pumping 35-gallon, under-sink grease traps at small mall stores, and no one wanted dirty 3-inch hoses coming into their kitchens," says Brad Carter, company vice-president. "Some places didn't even allow hoses."
The solution? Carter’s Septic Tank Service and Portable Washrooms adapted a 4-wheel hand truck by adding larger rubber tires and a sturdier axle. Then we modified a 55-gallon drum by attaching a 2-inch coupler to the lid for a vacuum-hose hook-up and by mounting an electric vacuum pump that draws 105cfm.
Inside the drum, a 2-inch pipe runs from the Camlock almost to the bottom of the barrel, which enables pumpers to vacuum out the drum's contents with their septic truck hose. Once it leaves the site, the unit weighs about 125 pounds and is 24 inches wide, so it fits through a standard 32-inch doorway. The drum is 35 inches tall, and the unit measures 52 inches tall to the top of the hand-truck handle. The unit has a charcoal-filled exhaust to help deodorize the air and operates on 110 volts.
