"Emergency or Regular Service? Your call. Which Ever You Think It Is, Call Herring."
If you think money problems can stress out your marriage, try having a septic problem. It's something you'll never forget for sure...especially if it ends up all over your finished basement.
Not covered by insurance, is lack of maintenance problems. Sometimes though, you can have a broken pipe due a lawnmower being driven over the pipe.
Herring Sanitation can guide you in the process of submitting insurance claims, including providing the details of the problem and repair.
Here are some common calls we get for Emergency Service:
If you have a septic that hasn't been pumped in the last 18 months and you're having a septic problem, call your septic professional first. Otherwise, you will end up paying twice for the work. This has happened many times to Herring's customers. They don't know who to call and their first thought is to go to a plumber. Your plumber may have snaking equipment, but generally the place to start is in your septic tank...checking your septic baffle for a clog. Most plumbers don't want to follow the problem to the septic tank.
True story - An apartment building main water line broke the day before Thanksgiving. There was no water supply to the entire complex - so in addition to all the cooking, boiling and cleaning being done...there was no way to use the toilets. Herring was called to deliver 14 portable toilet units immediately. As luck would have it for Jim and Sharon Herring, they were the only ones in the office when the call came in. Management of the complex was so frantic that the Herrings knew they had to get units out to them immediately. The porta-potty units were brought to the site and placed all around the buildings for access by all residents. Portable sinks and handicapped portable toilet units were also delivered. Talk about feeling appreciated! When the Herrings arrived on the scene, a line of residents rushed out of their homes to use the portable toilets. As it turned out, these apartments were without water from Wednesday night to Monday afternoon, due to the holiday weekend.
Some other reasons we get called for Portable Toilet Emergencies:
True Story - Herring got a call to pump a small inside grease trap. When our driver arrived and opened the tank, he found only 3 inches of grease in the small inside grease trap. When Herring inspected the tank, which should have been at operational level, there was a huge hole in the bottom of the tank that led into the basement/crawl space below. It turns out that for an undetermined amount of time (they suspect years), the grease trap has been dumping directly below all the rental units in the building. Herring has never seen so many officials on site, including City Engineers, Board of Health and other organizations . This was not a normal situation, but it is definite proof that small problems should not be ignored and regular maintenance should not be put off. The only symptom these people had was an odor, because things were flowing. This will be a very costly situation that could have been avoided. They have lost a business, face possible condemnation of their building and potential city fines.
