High Pressure Jetting Tankers: The Key to Effective Drainage Services and Sewer Jetting

When cleaning drains, tankers are indispensable, exerting powerful suction to clear debris and waste from a variety of systems like drains, gullies, and septic tanks. Floating debris such as leaves, litter, and silt can block drains, resulting in standing and flood water. 

Tanker services are equipped with powerful suction capabilities which can be utilised to remove silt from sewers and gullies. This is often combined with high pressure jetting to ensure thorough cleaning of the drainage system.

The notable suction capabilities of our tankers facilitate the elimination of debris and waste from diverse systems, including:

  • drains

  • gullies

  • grease 

  • soakaways

  • interceptors

  • septic tank emptying

Types of Vacuum Tankers

Vacuum tankers come in various sizes and capacities, depending on the specific model and purpose. They can range from as small as 1100 gallons (4950 litres) to as large as 6000 gallons (27270 litres). Different waste types necessitate the use of different tankers, such as: 

  • Waste tankers for liquid waste

They attended site to inspect and then produced an estimate with breakdown of the elements and associated costs which gave me confidence in what the price of the job was likely to be. The team carried out the prep work the day before and on the day removed the fuel, cleaned the tanks and left the site in a clean and tidy state. They were efficient, organised and did not waste any time. Job done in a few hours for my two smallish tanks. I have no problems recommending this company.
