In 1978, Kevin Burns began working at Coleman Community Schools. Around 1983, he saw the need and opportunity for septic tank pumping services in the area and proceeded to buy his first pumping truck in 1983.
From 1983 until 1989, he was working at the school full time, while also farming and pumping tanks. His days started early at 6:00 AM and went late into the night to around 11:00 PM.
Eventually, his hard work and determination allowed him to quit his job at the school and dedicate all his time to pumping septic tanks. In time, he incorporated Porta-Johns into the business by purchasing just 4 of them to start.
Today, Kevin Burns Septic & Porta-Johns, has 190 Porta-Johns, 2 pumping trucks and 2 Porta-John trucks.
Kevin has always been a hard worker and has gone the extra mile for all his customers and still does to this day.
We recommend that a typical 1000 gallon tank, in a home with three to four people, be pumped every two to three years. Service frequency varies depending on number of people and size of tank. Please see our frequency chart for more information.
Common signs that your tank needs maintenance are: Gurgling sounds from drains, toilets backing up, slow toilet flushing, or shower and washing machine doesn't drain. If you have smelly water seeping up through your lawn it's a sign that your septic field is damaged beyond repair. It could indicate that you need a new septic field.
During the process of septic maintenance, there is a necessary procedure of removing sod and soil to gain access to the septic tank. The sod and soil will be carefully removed and placed on tarps protecting the rest of the lawn. When finished, all the soil and sod will be replaced to their original locations.
When performing septic services, we will avoid driving on the customer's lawn at all costs. We pride ourselves in being as non-invasive as possible. Once we're finished we do our best to make it look like we were never there in the first place.
We like being there for our customers when they need us. We realize that emergencies and required maintenance can happen at inopportune times. Kevin Burns Septic will do its absolute best to be there when you need us most. Additionally, there is no extra charge for these occasions.
