Our Car Wash Sump Services
Car wash sumps have many parts that go into draining water and keeping sediment at bay. Parts include the well, the catch basins and the drains. Each of these parts will need to be cleaned and maintained on a regular basis so that no unwanted particles make it into the drain system, which could lead to expensive plumbing repairs from clogged pipes.
Over time, sediment can get into wells and build up on the bottom to prevent proper draining. If your car wash sump isn’t draining, Magnan Vac Truck Service can clean out the contents and jet the lines and ensure it is flowing properly.
Our car wash sump cleaning process stops sediments and grit from reaching the pump. This prevents the buildup on the bottom of your tank, which maintains a larger sized well and prevents flooding and overflowing.
If your parking lot is flooding, or if you are uncertain of the last time your catch basins were serviced, contact us so we can assess the situation and develop of plan of action to solve the problem.
With proper maintenance, the car wash sump prevents flooding and water backup at your car wash.
