Sewer Cleaning Trucks in McLean, VA

At Five Start Septic, we are authorities in septic pumping, repairs, installations and plumbing services. Our specialized sewer cleaning trucks make cleaning pipes an easier, more sanitary process. Sanitation is our key emphasis, which is why we only use modern technology and equipment to unclog congested drains, pipes and sewer lines.

Sewer Cleaning Techniques

When we use one of our trucks to unblock a sewer line, our professional team uses a combination of two cleaning methods: jetting and vacuuming. Jetting is a method in which a high-pressure water hose with a sewer-jetting nozzle is placed into a dirty pipeline. High-pressure is then released 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 unloaded into a sludge tank.

When jetting and vacuuming are simultaneously implemented, this makes cleaning more efficient. Combination sewer cleaning trucks make it possible for one person to run the jetter and vacuum hose, while another stands upstream from the manhole to make sure that the hose is progressing forward as it should. This individual will also see that the hose has touched the end of the manhole.

Benefits 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 sludge. The air vacuuming system will then draw all the dislodged dregs away and force it into disposal bins.

When both systems are in sync, clearing out sewer lines is more efficient. The advanced sewer cleaning machinery in our trucks is designed 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. Vac-con trucks can even be used as transfer pumps.
