How Our Vacuum Trucks Work for Sewer Cleaning
When our team uses a truck to unblock a sewer line, our professional team uses jetting and vacuuming techniques. Jetting is a method that uses a high-pressure water hose with a sewer jetting nozzle that releases debris from the tank. Vacuuming eliminates dirt through a suction system that dumps solids and water into a sludge tank.
When jetting and vacuuming are used together, this makes cleaning more effective. Combination sewer cleaning trucks make it feasible for one person to operate the jetter and vacuum hose, while another stands upstream of the manhole to ensure that the hose is moving forward correctly. This individual will also make sure the hose has found the end of the manhole.
Advantages of Our Vac-Con Truck Service
Our specialized sewer trucks release water pressure of around 75 gallons per minute into the manhole. This water clears out all the debris stuck in the pipe, everything from stones and bottles to grease, dirt and muck. The air vacuuming system will then pull all the dislodged debris away and force it into disposal bins.
When both systems work together, clearing out sewer lines becomes more effective. The innovative sewer clearing equipment in our trucks is created to act as vacuum excavators. They can transport 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 staff will always be available to man these vac-con trucks and ensure that the work is performed in an organized fashion. We carefully evaluate all cleaning necessities and then sensibly complete them. If you rely on Five Star Septic for regular sewer cleaning, it ensures an environmentally safe community in Fairfax, VA. Unobstructed sewer lines lessen the possibilities of diseases spreading or clogged pipes breaking.
