& Sewer Cleansing
At the head of the Aqua Industrial fleet of plant are the three Vactor
pipe/sewer cleansing vehicles. Designed for both municipal and industrial
applications, these multipurpose units are capable of collecting both
wet and dry items such as bricks, bottles and compacted waste. The
units have high pressure jetting capabilities of up to 360 litres
per minutes at 136 bar (79 galls/min at 2,000psi), and high airflow
suction up to 4,260 m3 per hour (2,500cfm) and
15" Hg (450 mbar) vacuum. Each unit is custom built to our own
We have one of the most sophisticated closed circuit camera survey systems
available today. Operating in full colour with automatic self-focussing
and mountable on a tractor unit attached to an umbilical cord allowing
up to eight hundred metres of travel, the camera unit itself allows surveying
of drains and other areas that many other units could not even approach.
The unit is connected a reprographic printer which allows colour prints
of any still during the course of a survey, and all surveys are accompanied
by a colour videotape recording, and a full survey report, as well as
colour reprographic prints where appropriate.
High Pressure Water Jetting
For information on UHP, see the dedicated section here.
Our jettting equipment, in combination with the Vactor Units / Vacuum
Tankers and high flow/high pressure equipment, enables us to carry out
efficient and speedy drain cleaning services. In conjunction with our
CCTV and video equipment, our drain opertaions can be dealt with in-house
from assessment of requirements to completion of any necessary remedial
works. We have carried out a good deal of work for British Telecommunications
in this field over the past two years, throughout the county. We were
also involved in gulley cleaning during the completion of the A34 Newbury

The business was founded on steam cleaning, and this still represented
a fundamental part of the overall business. The company policy is to replace
steam cleaners on an annual basis, which again allows us to offer the
best and most reliable service possible. The company currently operates
12 steam cleaning machines, and these are applied to a number of different
tasks. All of our direct staff are trained and qualified in the use and
safety of these machines, many with in excess of ten years experience.

all represent a significant portion of the company's activities. Anti
slip flooring has been laid in a number of different sites, and several
prestigious painting contracts are outlined in the contracts
Abrasive blasting operations have been a feature of the activities of
Aqua Industrial since the early days of the business. We are highly skilled
in silica-free sand, bead, grit and chilled iron aggregate blasting, and

activities that have been carried out by the company over recent years.
In addition, wet slurry blasting is carried out where the minimisation
