Here is a quick video on a simple septic truck strainer. Tom welded up the frame using angle iron and then added expanded metal for the screen. He welded on a steel top and then added a four inch nipple with a cam lock. One of these is very helpful when pumping out a septic holding tank so that large objects like bottles, cans and other trash don’t get sucked up through the septic truck hose into the septic truck tank.
Often times portable toilet and septic companies have a difficult time while pumping public usage areas like parks and campgrounds. This can be prevented by the general public remembering how important it is to observe the general rule not to dispose of trash into the septic tanks of the parks and campgrounds.
Septic tank companies can do some upfront preventative maintenance by having one of these strainers built at a local fabrication shop. A septic maintenance company can also build a strainer themselves with a welder and some steel pieces. The hose nipple and cam lock can be purchased separately.
