Sewer Jetting and Vacuuming Equipment in Mclean, Va

How Our Equipment Cleans Sewer Lines

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 pushed into a dirty pipeline. High-pressure in then set free from the sewer jet truck to extricate dirt and clear it away. Vacuuming eliminates dirt through a vacuuming system, and then solids and water are dumped into a sludge tank. Our experts also use snake devices to break through compact waste and chemicals to slowly dissolve and disintegrate natural material that creates an obstruction.

Combining Methods

When jetting and vacuuming are concurrently implemented, this makes cleaning more effective. Sewer equipment 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 ensure that the hose is moving forward as it should. This individual will also see that the hose has touched the end of the manhole.

Benefits of Sewage Cleaning Equipment

The dedicated sewer cleaning equipment from Five Star Septic issue 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, dirt and muck. The air vacuuming system will then suck all the displaced remains away and force it into disposal bins.

When both systems cooperate, cleaning sewer lines is more efficient. The innovative sewer cleaning fixtures in our equipment is created to serve as vacuum excavators. They 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.
