Septic Tank Services in Lafayette LA
Luke Deshotel Construction has been in business for nearly 30 years. We started with Plumbing and shifted our services to rural sewer systems. Over time we expanded our business by manufacturing our own sewer systems, pumping tanks, processing waste, and providing local rental properties.
In Luke’s spare time, he enjoys hunting wild boar. Luke and his hunting companions use dogs and hand cuffs to capture live hogs in the wild. The hogs are then sold for trophy hunts or raised on farms.
The following photo and quote are an excerpt from Pumper, a magazine about the liquid waste industry. Luke is positioned in the center wearing a blue shirt. He is surrounded by his family.
“For starters, Deshotels’ companies install, pump, clean and inspect septic tanks. They also sell equipment for septic tanks, and sell and repair septic-tank parts. At the same time, they build Hoot Home Sewer Treatment plants for rural residents, and clean grease traps and rent trailer homes. And if that’s not enough work, they built and operate their own wastewater treatment facility, where they process 20,000 gallons of septage, grease-trap and portable-toilet wastes daily.
No matter who calls or the nature of the job, Deshotels and his crew have the trucks, equipment and expertise to help. Their primary trucks are a 2005 Sterling LT 8500 with a 4,000-gallon Progress aluminum tank and 400-cfm Wittig pump. The rig was assembled by Tri State Tank. The truck also carries a Water Cannon jetter system. They also use a 2005 International 7600 with a 4,000-gallon steel tank and 300-cfm Wittig pump and a Harben jetter system from Presvac Systems Ltd. Their standby truck is a 1995 International 4900 with a 2,500-gallon steel tank and a 300-cfm Fruitland pump built by LMT Inc.”
