The primary application of sewer cleaners is the cleaning and maintenance of sewer lines. Over time, sewer lines can become clogged with grease, tree roots, sediment, debris and other obstructions, leading to reduced flow capacity and potential backups. Sewer systems around the world vary due to the type of pipe material, shape, size and location of the system. Regardless of these variables, sewer systems must be routinely inspected and cleaned to ensure safe, consistent movement of the wastewater.
Sewer cleaning is the process of removing built-up debris, such as leaves, grease, grit, sand, tree roots and other obstructions from the sewer system. Sewers collect different types of wastewater from a vareity of places such as homes, offices and industries. Additionally, improperly closed or missing manhole covers can also allow surface debris to enter a sewer system. To keep a sewer line in working condition and efficiently taking away wastewater, it is necessary to keep the sewer free of debris and obstructions that could prevent optimum flow conditions in the pipes. Improper flow can lead to problems over time such as severely clogged pipes, corrosion, backups, overflows and unpleasant odors.
Sewer cleaners combine high-pressure jetting and vacuuming to scour pipes clean and vacuum up debris to restore and maintain normal sewer flow.
