There are some occasions on pressure washing projects where having the SLUDGE SUCKER is very handy. It’s usually a commercial property parking lot, but can also apply for some residential driveway cleaning jobs. In low lying areas usually water is gathers, puddles up, and isn’t able to adequately drain off with the rest of the property. It will generally be filled with mud and dirt because the water sits there and has nowhere to go.
HOW TO MOVE IT
The usual attack for standing water is to just use a pressure washer to spray it away. This can be frustrating, time consuming, and sometimes makes the property look worse than when you started. So sometimes its best to break out THE SLUDGE SUCKER. Also known as the sludge pump, this is an easy way to turn your pressure washer into a water pump. With it, it becomes very easy to move, displace, or relocate large amounts of standing water. There is no filter so dirt, leaves, debris and such is sucked up into the large hose and relocated quickly and easily.
The sludge sucker is not something we use often. It does tie up some space on your truck or trailer, and we do not keep it with us for every job. It’s a tool that I know I have and as I do estimates for commercial properties, I can see if it would be important to have. But the last thing you want to do is leave a big puddle behind on a commercial parking lot. This is a poor reflection on your business so you’ll want to have a strategy in place to remove low lying standing puddles of water.
