Your service truck creates plenty of vacuum, but it can’t reach and clean everything in a tank. A new vacuum attachment is designed to clean more effectively than any physical type of scraping, chiseling or the manual removal of buildup.

The HydraBore Blaster from Pressure Lift can blast down and physically remove built up tallow, soap residue and tank waste left behind from poor service work or in cases where a tank hasn’t been serviced in a long time. Best used with a jetter, it will add only roughly 16 gallons of high-pressure water in a 10-minute period.

“The HydraBore is basically one of our Power Booster units with a built-in water jetting ring,” says Scott Spear, chief operating officer of Pressure Lift. “It is effective on especially dirty tanks to help the operator get it clean faster.”

The Power Booster itself is a vacuum-assisted pumping nozzle designed to simplify the transfer of liquids and highly viscous materials. It provides increased vertical lift and distance capability while pumping a wide range of materials. According to Spear, the time a technician has to spend on the typical job, with a unit pumping approximately 2,000 gallons of waste, at any depth from 5 to 500 feet, averages less than 20 minutes. HydraBore units are available in 3- and 4-inch sizes, with special orders of 6- and 8-inch units available.

“It cuts maintenance costs by keeping the vacuum pump cooler, thus minimizing oil consumption, keeping the vacuum body cooler, and providing shorter pump cycle times,” says Spear. “That means it also minimizes the potential for back injuries associated with working, or burping vacuum hoses while pumping.”

The unit offers one-man operation and faster loading times. It also reduces back injuries from full hoses. It works with industrial-size pressure washers and jetters to suspend materials while pumping.

“Placed in-line beginning at the end of the vacuum hose, it cuts operational time when pumping grease traps, sand traps, storm vaults, lift stations and septic tanks, especially those with difficult access, long hose runs and deep elevation changes,” says Spear. 866-504-6596;
