Can I get septic truck in Chicago?

Hi friends,

I will be dry camping in downtown Chicago. Does anyone know a septic service that will come and drain my tanks? No dump stations nearby.

Thanks.

You have to be careful since many don't normally provide that service and if done wrong will collapse your tank.

EDIT: Check with a Port-O-Let company..

Have you googled septic tank service in Chicago? Have you contacted RV dealer in that area to see if they know of one?

I wouldn't recommend the solution that the Dave Matthews Band used . . .

Alternatively to having it drained can you use a macerator pump system to pump it into someone's toilet? You can also get an inexpensive pump that connects to a garden hose for the gray water.
One on Amazon says $95 and connects to normal outlet valve and would work for both black and gray if you can find somewhere to pump into a toilet.
Re-useable and cheaper than a septic truck coming out more than once.

Sounds like your at McCormick. I wish they would set up for dumps. Closest dump is at Cabelas in Hammond, In. For the cost of a truck, if you can find it, the drive would be faster and cheeper
