Our Methods for Sewer Cleaning
When we use our equipment to clean out a sewer line, our professional team combines two cleanings methods: jetting and vacuuming. Jetting is a process in which a high-pressure water hose with a sewer-jetting nozzle is inserted into a dirty pipeline. High-pressure in then released from the sewer jet truck to extricate dirt and flush it away. Vacuuming extracts dirt through a vacuuming system, and then solids and water are disposed into a sludge tank. We also use snake devices to break through compact waste and chemicals to slowly dissolve and emulsify organic material that creates an obstruction.
Using Simultaneous Cleaning Methods
When jetting and vacuuming are simultaneously performed, this makes cleaning more productive. Sewer equipment that can both jet and vacuum make it possible for one person to run the jetter and vacuum hose, while another stands upstream of the manhole to make sure that the hose is progressing forward as it should. This individual will also make sure the hose has found the end of the manhole.
Benefits of Sewage Cleaning Equipment
The dedicated sewer cleaning equipment from Five Star Septic use water pressure of a round 75 gallons per minute into the manhole. This water flushes out all the debris lodged in the pipe, everything from stones and bottles to grease, grime and muck. The air vacuuming system will then draw all the extricated remains away and force it into disposal bins.
When both systems are in sync, clearing out sewer lines is more efficient. The innovative sewer cleaning machinery in our equipment is created to act as vacuum excavators. The equipment can transport underground cables and pipes to the surface and also work for street flushing, chemical and water-spraying services. Sewer cleaning equipment can even be used as transfer pumps.
Five Star Septic’s practiced staff will always be on hand to man this equipment and make sure that the work is performed in a controlled manner. We thoroughly judge all cleaning needs and then sensibly carry them out. When you contact us for regular sewer cleaning, it guarantees an environmentally safe community in Fairfax, Va.
