Even if you aren’t due for septic tank pumping, Five Star Septic is available for scheduled inspections. For property owners, keeping a functioning septic tank is required.

How Vac-Con Trucks Clean Sewer Lines

When our team uses a truck to unblock a septic tank, our professional team combines two cleaning tools: jetting and vacuuming. Jetting is a method that implements a high-pressure water hose with a sewer jetting nozzle to release sewage from the pipe. Vacuuming eliminates dirt through a vacuuming system, and then sewage are unloaded into a sludge tank.

Combining Methods

When jetting and vacuuming are used in tandem, septic tank maintenance becomes more efficient. Combination sewer cleaning trucks 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 working properly. This individual will also see that the hose has touched the end of the manhole.

Benefits of Our Sewer Cleaning Trucks

The professional sewer cleaning trucks from Five Star Septic issue water pressure of around 75 gallons per minute into the manhole. This water clears out all the debris stuck in the plumbing, debris such as bottles, grime and muck. The air vacuuming system will then draw all the dislodged remains away and force it into disposal bins.

If both systems cooperate, cleaning sewer systems is more effective. The progressive sewer pumping fixtures in our trucks is designed to act as vacuum excavators. The 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.

Our knowledgeable technicians will always be on hand to man these sewer cleaning trucks and confirm that the work is carried out in a structured way. We carefully assess all cleaning needs and then sensibly carry them out. If you rely on Five Star Septic for annual sewer cleaning, it ensures an environmentally safe community in Oakton, Va.
