Jet Vacuumation

Maintenance is the best policy

The last thing you want is sewage contaminating your site, causing health issues and environmental incidents. Some surface water drains run into the foul sewer system so ensuring that all the pipes are kept clear of obstructions and free flowing is good forward planning, if flooding and blockages are to be avoided. Lanes' sewer jet vacuumation service is the key to good housekeeping and sewer maintenance.

It’s simple with Lanes’ PPM

Jetting the sewer pipes forces silt and debris forward until it arrives at the next downstream manhole or access point, where it’s vacuumed out by one of our advanced jet vacuumation tankers. This jet vacuumation service is also effective for interceptors, septic tanks, chambers and soakaways. Putting a Lanes’ PPM (Pre Planned Maintenance) contract in place is the simplest way to make sure all this gets done, without you having to ask. Our jet vacuumation teams will simply visit according to a pre-arranged schedule, check, jet and vacuum the sewers, and leave. Job done.  

It never rains but it pours

With increasingly extreme weather fronts resulting in severe flooding in recent years, our jet vacuumation service has spearheaded many post-flood clean up operations on the roads. With our incredibly powerful vacuumation unit capability (suction at a rate of 1000 cubic feet per minute), we make sure that any offending water and sewage waste is removed and disposed of according to waste legislations — without delay. And, working on the basis that prevention is better than cure, many highways authorities now use Lanes to maintain roadside gullies which take away surface water from their highways and byways.

Lanes’ jet vacs get everywhere!

Or at least they do now. Our tankers handle pretty much everything we throw at them, but, very occasionally, access to site is over hill and dale — and really rugged terrain. And that can cause us the odd little blip. But, no more! Completing our fleet is the tractor jet vac tanker for those cross-country pursuits. It does everything the road units do, but allows us to get up close and personal for hard-to-reach jobs. There’s no hiding place from a Lanes jet vac!

Keep up with your PPG

  • Emptying tanks from vehicle washing facilities (PPG13)
  • Decanting run-off after a fire or spillage from a containment facility (PPG 18)
