The team at Five Star Septic in Oakton, VA is skilled in septic pumping, repairs, installations and plumbing services. Our certified sewer cleaning trucks make cleaning pipes a quicker, more sanitary process. Public health is our main concentration, which is why we only use the latest technology and equipment to unclog congested drains, pipes and sewer lines.
Sewer Cleaning Methods
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 process in which a high-pressure water hose with a sewer-jetting nozzle is inserted into an unclean pipeline. High-pressure is then set free from the sewer jet truck to remove dirt and clear it away. Vacuuming extracts dirt through a vacuuming system, and then solids and water are dumped into a sludge tank.
When jetting and vacuuming are simultaneously performed, this makes cleaning more productive. Sewer trucks that can both jet and vacuum make it possible for one person to operate the jetter and vacuum hose, while the other individual stands upstream from the manhole to ensure that the hose is progressing forward as it should. This individual will also make sure the hose has touched the end of the manhole.
Advantages of Our Vac-Con Truck Service
The dedicated sewer cleaning trucks from Five Star Septic issue water pressure of around 75 gallons per minute into the manhole. This water flushes out all the debris stuck 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 are in sync, clearing out sewer lines is more effective. The advanced sewer cleaning fixtures in our trucks are designed to serve as vacuum excavators. The trucks can transport underground cables and pipes to the surface and also work for street flushing, chemical and water-spraying services. Our trucks can even be used as transfer pumps.
Our knowledgeable personnel will always be available to man these vac-con trucks and make sure that the work is performed in a structured way. We carefully judge all cleaning requirements and then sensibly complete them. If you count on Five Star Septic for annual sewer cleaning, it guarantees an ecologically friendly community in Oakton, VA. Clean sewer lines reduce the chances of diseases transmitting or stopped pipes breaking.
