Our Fleet for the North-West

The following vehicles are used to ensure we can provide the correct service for our Preston clients:

3,000 Gallon Tanker

With a 200ft 3” suction hose, our tanker can empty awkward-to-reach septic tanks and cess pools, storing up to 3,000 gallons of dirty water. Weighing 26.5 tonnes, the unit is also suitable for pumping out sewers that have not been connected to the mains systems.

For cleaning services and jet-wash facilities, the vehicle holds 250 gallons of clean water with 100m of ½” hose, which is perfect for cleaning or unblocking drains with a diameter of either 100 or 150mm.

Combination Unit

A second 26.5 tonne vehicle, this versatile unit contains a hydraulic telescopic boom with 360° rotation. It also carries 130ft of 4” suction piping, with 150m of 1” jetting hose. If required, a further 50m of ½” hose is stored on board.

The unit has a 2,000 gallon dirty water capacity – or 8 tonnes of silt - with 1,300 gallons of clean water, which can be pumped at 2,000psi/80 gallons per minute. This allows us to thoroughly clean or clear blocked drains measuring 100mm to 1,500mm in diameter.

  • Gullies
