How Vac-Con Trucks Clean Sewer Lines
When our team uses a truck to clean out a sewer line, our professional team combines two cleaning methods: jetting and vacuuming. Jetting is a method that uses a high-pressure water hose with a sewer jetting nozzle to wash waste from the pipe. Vacuuming removes dirt through a vacuuming system, and then sewage is disposed into a sludge tank.
Using Simultaneous Cleaning Methods
When jetting and vacuuming are used in tandem, sewage inspections become more productive. Sewer trucks that can both jet and vacuum make it feasible for one person to run the jetter and vacuum hose, while the other individual stands upstream of the manhole to ensure that the hose is functioning correctly. This individual will also guarantee the hose has touched the end of the manhole.
Advantages of Our Vac-Con Truck Service
The dedicated sewer cleaning trucks from Five Star Septic release water pressure of around 75 gallons per minute into the manhole. This water flushes out all the debris stuck in the plumbing, debris such as bottles, grime and sludge. The air vacuuming system will then suck all the displaced dregs away and force it into disposal bins.
If both systems are in sync, cleaning sewer systems is more effective. The innovative sewer pumping fixtures in our trucks is designed to serve as vacuum excavators. These trucks can bring underground cables and pipes to the surface and also work for street flushing, chemical and water-spraying services. These can even be used as transfer pumps.
