Grease Traps

Grease Traps

Grease traps can be the single biggest hassle for restaurants and commercial kitchens if not cleaned regularly. Grease trap maintenance performed on a routine schedule keeps drains flowing smoothly Skip Wooten Service Contracts can help prevent costly back-ups, and keep your business up and running. Grease traps are engineered to stop fats, oils or grease (FOG) from entering the sewer lines. Left unchecked, FOG cools, then solidifies and sticks to the insides of the pipes, trapping food particles and other debris. Over time, this solid mass continues to grow until it obstructs the flow of waste water and causes sewage to back up.
What should I do to help the performance of my grease trap?:
Schedule regular grease trap maintenance. Make sure that food prep and wash sinks are tied into a trap. Ensure that your trap is properly sized. Train your staff to remove as much waste and food solids as possible from plates and pots before washing. Maintain a cleaning log for code compliance.

Mound System

A drainfield constructed as a prescribed elevation in a prepared area of fill material. All drainfields where any part of the bottom surface of the drainfield is located at or above the elevation of undisturbed​ native soil in the drainfield area is a mound system. Lifting of effluent water to higher drain fields may be required for homes that are unable to get gravity flow to a higher sewer system. Contact us today.

Lift Station

Lift Station
The two main components of a typical septic system are the storage tank and the drain field, and if the slope of the land allows, gravity transfers water between them. If topography requires the tank to be located below the drain field, however, the system needs a lift station. Because it’s crucial to the operation of the system, it’s good to understand how your lift station works. Our lift stations are composed of a tank that is 300 to 500 gallons, a pump and a control panel that contains an alarm system. Lifting of effluent water to higher drain fields such as a mound system. For homes that are unable to get gravity flow to a higher sewer system. Larger systems can contain two pumps that alternate or one pump will operate in the event one pump fails. Contact us today.

Low-Pressure Dose Systems

Low-Pressure Dose Systems
(Also known as low-pressure pipe systems) may offer an alternative where soil and topographical conditions do not permit placement of a conventional septic system. These are used to distribute large amounts of effluent water to the entire drain field to spread out the saturation. This is especially true where the topography requires the drain-field to be located up-hill from the septic tanks or where there is uneven terrain that would otherwise preclude placement of a conventional system.

I would recommend Skip Wooten Septic Tank Services to everyone! One morning I got a call that my septic tank was bubbling sewage. I live out of state and needed this taken care of right away. Skip handled my call with the same urgency I felt. Turned out to be roots from the hedge had grown into the drain field lines. I didn't know a permit was necessary but he knew and did all the leg work for me. He also got the permission to relocate the drain field so that roots will no longer grow into my new drain field. Skip's quote was right on target with what a construction friend of mine from another Florida county told me it should cost; so I knew there was no reason to look elsewhere. Skip was easy to work with; prompt, courteous, patient, returned my calls and answered all my questions with great knowledge. He put me in a comfort zone with my first phone call. He followed through on his word to email the photos since I was out of state. He comes from the old school of hard work, honesty, a man of his word, and treating others with respect. My only wish, is that he did other things so I could utilize his services, i.e., A/C, plumbing, electrical, etc. God Bless you Mr. Wooten! This world needs more people like you! -Lin L.

Skip was very professional, courteous, honest, and explained everything in detail. I would highly recommend. -Jeniffer S
