Jet Vac Application : Sewer Line Cleaning
What is a jet vac truck?
A jet vac, also known as a vacuum truck, is mostly used for the transportation or removal of sanitary waste. It's mostly used as a regular maintenance for towns, cities, and counties to clean up the streets or restoring sewer lift stations. A jet vac truck also provides a safe way to locate underground utility lines.
When it comes to commercial and industrial areas, a jet vac truck can also be used to clean up different kinds of debris and waste such as oil spills. The jet vac truck is composed of many parts such as the tank and the hose.
All the waste, material, and debris is carefully suctioned into the tank of the truck. A licensed jet vac truck technician safely operates the system and then properly disposes of all materials at a designated facility.
A jet vac truck can also be used for lift station maintenance and to clean construction sites.
Jet vac process during a sewer line cleaning :
If you are already experiencing some issues or clogs in your sewer line system, you should call one of our experts to take a look. The chances are high that your sewer line system is experiencing issues associated with damages.
In order to determine the cause of the issue, one of our sewer line technicians will insert a video camera through the pipe system. This process is also known as a video pipe inspection. While the video camera goes through, a live video feed is received on a monitor in on of our trucks. This way we are able to see exactly what is causing the issue. At this point, you will receive the most accurate recommendations to clean or repair the pipe. The professionals, such as those found at Cloud 9 Services, use two systems of cleaning -- jetting and vacuuming.
Jetting is a process in which a high-pressure water hose with a sewer-jetting nozzle is pushed into the dirty pipeline. High-pressure water is released from the sewer jet truck to dislodge all the dirt and flush it away into a gully hole. As the dirt is removed, the nozzle continues to move deeper into the sewer.
Sewer cleaners also use vacuuming through which all the dirt is extracted with a vacuuming system. All the solids ad water removed this way are then disposed into a debris tank.
How often should sewer lines be cleaned?
Sewer line cleaning operations are carried throughout the year, though they are more frequently done in summer and fall. These are times when the rain tends to cause dirt and debris which clogs up the sewage systems. But at least once a year is a good rule of thumb to go by and you can increase frequency of cleaning as needed.
