Mike Clark Excavating & Septic Pumping
Details of the Recognition
When heated, flushable restrooms were made a construction site requirement in Ontario, this pumper built his own.
For years, Mike Clark, of Mike Clark Excavating & Septic Pumping in Bethany, Ontario, Canada, built his own septic service trucks and jetting equipment. So when the provincial Ministry of Labour specified heated, flushing portable restrooms on construction sites, Clark and associate Paul Wilson simply built 10 prototypes to meet the new regulation.
Using a 4- by 4-foot footprint, the men built frames of two-by-four treated spruce, then sandwiched 1.5-inch high-density foam insulation between the interior PVC sheets and exterior treated plywood siding. They reinforced outside corners with 1- by 4-foot PVC strips, then attached heavy-duty PVC handles to them. Components including holding tanks, and hand wash sinks were purchased from PolyJohn Canada.
