Sewer Jetting and Vacuuming Equipment in Sterling, VA

Sewer Cleaning Techniques

When our team uses a truck to clean out a sewer line, our professional team combines two cleanings methods: jetting and vacuuming. Jetting is a method in which a high-pressure water hose with a sewer-jetting nozzle is pushed into a dirty pipeline. High-pressure in then released from the sewer jet truck to remove dirt and clear it away. Vacuuming eliminates dirt through a vacuuming system, and then solids and water are dumped into a sludge tank. We also use snake devices to perforate dense waste and chemicals to gradually dissolve and emulsify organic material that causes an obstruction.

Combining Methods

When jetting and vacuuming are concurrently performed, this makes cleaning more efficient. Sewer equipment that are capable of jetting and vacuuming make it possible for one person to run the jetter and vacuum hose, while another stands upstream of the manhole to ensure that the hose is progressing forward as it should. This individual will also make sure the hose has extended to the end of the manhole.

Benefits of Sewage Cleaning Equipment

Our specialized sewer equipment use water pressure of a round 75 gallons per minute into the manhole. This water clears out all the debris lodged in the pipe, everything from stones and bottles to grease, grime and muck. The air vacuuming system will then suck all the displaced remains away and force it into disposal bins.

When both systems work together, clearing out sewer lines is more effective. The advanced sewer cleaning equipment in our equipment is created to act as vacuum excavators. The equipment can bring underground cables and pipes to the surface and also function for street flushing, chemical and water-spraying services. Sewer cleaning equipment can even be used as transfer pumps.
