The Vault Maintenance System (VMS) is a staged filtration system in the form of an easy-to-use filter sock that will allow you to evacuate underground utility vaults directly into the environment. Also very effective when draining sprinkler systems. Filters out rust color from water so the water will not stain a driveway or sidewalk.

The standard operating procedure for the removal of water from vaults has been to either:

  1.  Evacuate the contaminated water by pumping it into the environment, risking: regulatory penalties, hefty fines, possible hazmat response, a negative public perception; or
  2. Use a vacuum truck for off-site processing which involves: truck expense (if a truck is available), wasted man hours, expensive water disposal costs, and off-site liability at treatment storage and disposal facilities.

You can eliminate the costs associated with vacuum trucks and water processing, you can be within regulatory compliance and you can help the environment. That not only makes good sense for your company, it helps the bottom line.
