1. Hi-Vac Aquatech B-Series Combination Sewer Cleaner

The Aquatech B-Series Combination Sewer Cleaner from Hi-Vac is suitable for any size municipality, water and sewer district, or contractor for cleaning storm drains, catch basins and sewers. It is available with multiple debris tank sizes and water tank capacities as well as various water and vacuum pump options. This scalability means each unit can be custom fit for use in any application. The rear-mounted hose reel design with 180-degree hydraulic articulation takes the operator off the street and away from traffic, providing a full 12-foot work radius beyond the truck’s width. The rear-mounted hose reel also makes it easier for drivers to see, providing an unobstructed, 270-degree field of vision. The top-loading boom and one-piece vacuum hose provide unlimited 360-degree operation. 800-752-2400;


2. Avanti International AV-100

AV-100 chemical grout from Avanti International is used to rehabilitate storm and sanitary sewer systems by eliminating infiltration in manholes, mainlines, joints, laterals and lateral connections, and before or after various forms of CIPP lining. It is injected after lining seals in the annular space between host pipe and liner, and lateral reinstatement, which are the primary sources of infiltration. It is an ultralow viscosity, chemically reactive gel with a similar viscosity to water. It can permeate anywhere water can travel and has adjustable cure times from seconds to hours, creating an effective, long-lasting water barrier while providing soil stabilization. 800-877-2570;

3. Cretex Specialty Products Internal Chimney Seal

Cretex Specialty Products Internal Chimney Seals are mechanical, so there is no need to worry about surface adhesion or stopping active leaks prior to installation. The seals eliminate and prevent manhole chimney inflow. During wet weather, clear water enters the manhole through deteriorated and broken chimney joints, which may burden the collections system. The chimney seal has a 50-year design life and is available in four widths, allowing complete chimney coverage up to 24 vertical inches with a single seal. 800-345-3764;


The CUES LAMP II (Lateral and Mainline Probe II) can assist in locating buried assets and help prevent potential cross-bore risks. It is an inspection tool for identifying infiltration and inflow, potential cross bores, pipe defects, and structural conditions in lateral services and mainlines. When used with the optional Mini Pan & Tilt Cameras, it can inspect lateral services and traverse multiple bends and wyes when deployed with or against the flow. Mainline inspection is accomplished with a pan, tilt and 40-1 zoom camera. It can pull 1,000 feet of video cable, reducing traffic control expenses while increasing production, and launch 150 feet or more into the lateral. The package includes a detachable steering wand, self-leveling camera head, built-in lens wiper, 360-degrees pan and tilt, four banks of LEDs with variable light intensity, and a built in sonde with switchable frequencies. 800-327-7791;

5. Sauereisen Manhole ChimneySeal No. F-88

Manhole ChimneySeal No. F-88 from Sauereisen is an elastomeric lining composed of fiber-reinforced, asphalt-modified urethane. It is self-priming with water absorption of 0.05%. Applied by gloved hand at 1/8-inch minimum thickness, it provides a flexible barrier or gasket seal for the prevention of water infiltration. It resists the stresses and movement associated with freeze/thaw environments while maintaining ideal elasticity/adhesion over temperature ranges from negative 30 to 250 degrees F. 412-963-0303;

6. Subsite Electronics Steerable Storm Drain Tractor

Functioning on up to 2,000 feet of single conductor cable, the Steerable Storm Drain Tractor transports Subsite Electronics’ mainline cameras deep into storm drains, sewer and water pipes 24 inches and larger. Its motorized camera lift allows the camera to be centered in pipelines up to 60 inches in diameter. The tractor offers three forward speeds, reverse and freewheel. Single-conductor cable technology provides significant cost and performance advantages through the interchangeability of components, backward and forward compatibility, and reduced downtime. Using the sky crane, operators can lower the tractor into pipes with ease due to the sturdy angled bracket at the back of the tractor and evenly distributed weight across the tractor and crane. The front bumper protects the unit and assists with deployment in unpredictable environments. Four-wheel drive and a 125W motor with high-efficiency gear exchange allow operators to efficiently inspect various pipe conditions. 800-846-2713;

7. Super Products Camel Max Series

Camel Max Series combination sewer cleaners from Super Products allow operators to tackle various applications with jetting, vacuuming and excavating. The product line comes in a variety of model configurations: 900 Dump, 1200 Dump, 1200 Eject and 1200 Wastewater Recycle. All 1200 models come standard with a high-dump subframe, eliminating the need to back up a ramp for debris removal. The 1200 Dump is capable of dumping into a 42-inch container while maintaining a low overhead height and a low center of gravity for increased stability. The 1200 Eject allows operators to have the only controlled way to dump safely into a 48-inch container without the need of additional containment products. The 1200 Wastewater Recycle enables operators to clean sewers without the use of freshwater, and is capable of cleaning nearly 3,000 feet of sewer pipe per day and saving 60,000 gallons of water per week. 800-837-9711;


8. Advanced Drainage Systems BaySaver Technologies Barracuda S4

The Baysaver Technologies Barracuda S4, a high-performance hydro-dynamic separator from Advanced Drainage Systems, removes sediment and other debris from stormwater runoff, further protecting water resources. It is designed with internal teeth that mitigate turbulence in the storage chamber to prevent resuspension of captured contaminants. It is designed to be used in a single manhole configuration and offers multiple pipe configurations, flexible inlet/outlet positioning, quick installation, easy inspection and maintenance. 800-821-6710;

9. BioMicrobics BioSTORM

The pre-engineered BioSTORM stormwater treatment system from BioMicrobics effectively filters and captures more than 90% of the common pollutants, such as trash, oils, sediment and other suspended solids that would otherwise end up in the combined sewer overflows, waterways or receiving environment in flows from 0.5 to 10 cubic feet per second. Used for primary and secondary applications, the versatility of the offline, two-phase design consists of a StormTEE deflector screen to physically separate trash (cigarette butts, etc.) and large debris, and a fixed-film media that acts to separate liquids from solids, and oil from water. They can be used together to form a complete system or separately for different sustainable site applications. The system allows for design flexibility and mounts easily in local precast tanks with minimal maintenance. 800-753-3278;

10. Sealing Systems Flex-Seal 2.0

Flex-Seal 2.0 from Sealing Systems is an all-purpose sealant that adheres to many surfaces and has over 800% elongation. It is designed to prevent inflow and infiltration and to provide corrosion protection at the grade adjustment ring section or joint section of manholes and catch basins. It is 100% safe and Prop 65 compliant. The internal seal is manually applied using a paintbrush and the kit is designed to cover 12 vertical inches on a 27-inch-diameter manhole. 800-478-2054;


11. Enz USA Bulldog Manhole Nozzle

The Bulldog Manhole Nozzle from Enz USA was designed to clean lift stations and vertical pipes. It eliminates the disposal process by emulsifying the grease. This allows the operators to pump the resulting wastewater to a sewage treatment plant. A job that could take hours to do can now be done in 20 or 30 minutes. There is no water loss from leaks and it requires no maintenance. 888-369-8721;
