Root intrusion into conveyance pipelines is a major problem throughout the United States. Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSO) are common due to root blockages and are considered a serious environmental problem.
The high water pump rating on our Vactor trucks facilitates the use of a mechanical root cutter which is powered by water pressure. A circular blade, similar to the pipe size, is attached to a motor/jetting nozzle combination. The jetting nozzle propels the rotating blade forward effectivly removing roots as well as grease build up.
Benefits of Hiring Bravo:
