High-Tech Sewer Cleaning Trucks

At Five Start Septic, we are authorities in septic pumping, installations and plumbing services. Our specialized sewer cleaning trucks make cleaning pipes an easier, more sanitary process. Public health is our central focus, which is why we only use the latest technology and gear to unblock congested drains, pipes and septic tanks.

Septic tank manufacturers suggest a cleaning every 3-5 years minimum. For busy properties with tanks smaller than 1,500 gallons in Fairfax, we suggest more frequent visits. Even if you aren’t due for septic tank cleaning, the Five Star Septic specialists are trained for regular inspections. For property owners, maintaining a healthy septic tank is extremely important.

How Trucks Clean Sewer Lines

When we use one of our trucks to unblock a septic tank, our professional team combines jetting and vacuuming techniques. Jetting implements a powerful water hose with a sewer jetting nozzle that releases sewage from the tank. Vacuuming extracts dirt through a suction system, and then solids and water are unloaded into a sludge tank.

Using Simultaneous Cleaning Methods

When jetting and vacuuming are concurrently performed, septic tank pumping becomes more efficient. Sewer trucks that can both jet and vacuum make it feasible for one person to operate the jetter and vacuum hose, while the other individual stands upstream of the manhole to make sure that the hose is working correctly. This individual will also make sure the hose has found the end of the manhole.

Benefits of Our Vac-Con Truck Service

Our effective sewer trucks release water pressure of around 75 gallons per minute into the manhole. This water clears out all the debris lodged in the plumbing, debris such as bottles, dirt and sludge. The air vacuuming system will then suck all the extricated dregs away and force it into disposal bins.

If both systems unite, clearing out sewer systems is more effective. The advanced sewer pumping machinery in our trucks is created to serve as vacuum excavators. They can transport underground cables and pipes to the surface and also function for street flushing, chemical and water-spraying services. These can even be used as transfer pumps.

Five Star Septic’s knowledgeable staff will always be available to man these vac-con trucks and make sure that the work is performed in a controlled fashion. We carefully assess all cleaning requirements and then carefully complete them. When you call us for annual sewer cleaning, it guarantees an ecologically friendly community in Fairfax, Va. Clean sewer lines reduce the possibilities of illnesses transmitting or clogged pipes erupting.
