On June 21 representatives of Great Southern Equipment Company (GSE), including Jared Wilson, environmental specialist, and Tommy Marks, vice president of sales (Orlando), met with city of Edgewater, Fla., municipal workers to demonstrate the features and benefits of a Vacall All Jet Vac (AJV). Later, the group put the machine to the test, cleaning a storm drain in the city of Edgewater.

Features of the Vacall Recycler, including asymmetrical shaped debris tank, enable it to hold more debris and to help avoid a rollover accident. Another unique feature of the Vacall Recycler is that it can be used as a recycler truck or a vacuum truck. The Vacall Recycler also includes a lifetime warranty on the debris tank and water tanks.

The Vacall Recycler also saves downtime, eliminating the need to refill water tanks and trips to the dump station, which saves hours on site. The recycler also saves thousands of gallons of water. To put this in perspective, one Vacall AJV combination sewer cleaning truck can save an average of 5.7 million gallons of city water each year when it's equipped with a recycler continuous water recycling system, which typically requires no city water at all. The water savings calculation is based on typical municipality usage statistics, using 80 gallons of water per minute, six hours per day and 40 weeks a year. Individual city water savings may vary, based on jetting activity.

Additionally, the recycler system vacuums water from sewer lines, puts it through a five-step filtering process and then uses the same water to continue jetting. Located in the front of the debris tank for protection against stones and other vehicles, the recycler system also includes a 240-gallon segregated clean water tank section attached to a 10 gpm pump and 50 ft. hose reel for wash down.
