Sand, leaves, branches, and other debris collect in storm drains and can build up over time. When a catch basin becomes congested, water is unable to drain. This can be extremely problematic to your municipal, residential, and business properties. A clogged stormwater drain near public facilities, homes, and businesses could flood and ruin flooring, furniture, and appliances.

What Makes Hy Vac Trucks Special?
Not only do High Vacuum (Hy Vac) trucks remove liquid waste, they can also extract debris and break up hardened grease that a pump may leave behind. Thanks to their powerful high-velocity water jets (which operate at an astonishing 80 gallons per minute), Hy Vac service can even restore a tank or catch basin to its original condition.
When Do You Need Hy Vac Service?
While pump trucks can be utilized for a variety of everyday needs, Hy Vac trucks are typically used in more challenging commercial and municipal applications, such as:
- Maintenance of gas and oil lines by utility companies and sewer lines and storm drains by municipal services.
- Flood cleanup! These trucks are essential in removing leftover stormwater from submerged areas and storm drains. The Hy Vac can even pick up grit, sand, and small rocks, as well as remove hazardous sludge so it can be safely disposed of.

With a combination of pressurized water and a powerful air vacuum, soil can be moved or removed in a way that is less disruptive and destructive than traditional methods, allowing for easier installation and repair of pipes and cables.
