The winter season means colder temperatures and shorter days. When temperatures dip below 30 degrees F at night and don't warm back up during the following day, freezing can happen quickly. Ice in lines, hoses and pumps can cause significant damage, resulting in costly repairs and downtime.

Taking steps to prevent freezing and accumulations of ice in the water pump and elsewhere will help ensure that your unit is protected and runs when needed. If there's even the slightest possibility that ice has formed in the pump, move the vehicle to a warm area and allow the water system to warm completely before further maintenance or use.

Always consult your sewer cleaner's Operator's Manual for specific instructions and warnings when servicing your sewer cleaner, and always wear eye protection, foot protection and gloves.

An ounce of preventive maintenance goes a long way in extending the life of your investment and ensuring that your sewer cleaning equipment is always ready to roll.
