Vac-Con’s Hot Shot sewer machine flushes anything from stones, bottles, cans, grease, sludge and other debris from sanitary and/or storm drain lines by the flushing action of high-pressure water. The Hot Shot machine offers smooth flow water systems up to 80 gpm and 3,000 psi and 1,000- to 2,500-gal fresh water tanks. The machines are available with optional articulating hose reels for ease of operation and flexibility.

The 800-HPR ECO Truck Jet is equipped with the latest hydraulic technology, which allows this unit to operate at a reduced engine speed while still generating at peak gpm and psi power. The lower engine speed means fuel consumption is reduced by 33 percent and noise reduction is 30 percent less at 3 ft and 50 percent less at 25 ft. The new hydraulic system offers the option of using environmentally safe and non-toxic hydraulic fluid that is biodegradable and therefore non-threatening to the ecosystem. In addition, the 800-HPR ECO water tank has an increased thickness of ¾-in. and new bolted baffles — both improvements mean a more robust water tank with a longer life.

The lateral cleaning accessory kit for the IBAK lateral launch system allows users to clean and inspect laterals from the mainline pipe. This process uses a specially designed jet nozzle which is deployed from the LISY 3 Lateral Launch system inside the mainline pipe, avoiding the need to access individual homeowner’s property. Users no longer have to open cleanouts or schedule with individual homeowners. Efficiently clean an entire city block’s worth of laterals from one access point.
