In honour of them we’re celebrating Pi day! The American calendar reads today as 3.14, the initial figures of Pi. It is the crucial mathematical constant ratio between the circumference of a circle and its radius. Circles are a key element in the construction of our cylindrical tankers. We also have a cyclical nature to our wet waste management.
John Lake, Director of Rain for Rent and Hydro Cleansing’s Director Steve Hoad.
Our innovative tanker Megatron has an elegant cycle which allows for continual work. The beast vacuum sucks in wet waste its recycling unit sifts the water from the other elements of the waste and uses it to continue its high pressure jetting.
The water cycle is a beautiful thing in nature. We contribute to its fluid movement through modern life, in keeping sewers flowing, recycling waste water and much more. As people innovate, water is used in increasingly innovative ways. From harnessing its power to employing it in construction; it is essential in almost any endeavours. Society squeezes every benefit out of water, and it is often left as waste: sludge, slurry, faecal waste etc. At Hydro Cleansing we take these waste products and return them to purified water.
The water cycle flows through both of our businesses and HCL puts it back into its pure form.
Arguably the most important factor for Hydro Cleansing to take into consideration whilst undertaking works is the environment. Protecting and caring for it, is our duty as a reliable, sustainable business. Dedicated to the prevention of air, land and water pollution and contamination, we promote recycling, also incorporating an incomparable environmental waste disposal policy.

The description of the job was pretty mundane. Can you send along a combination unit to empty out some drains which would in turn allow the contractor to handover their works to their client, a local hospital. Straight forward enough you would say. Anyway, circumstances conspired to result in Megatron attending the job, and as it turned out, that was definitely a good thing…
Megatron instantly began to recover vast amounts of rubble and other unknown tenacious items from depths of over 50m’s. The rattle of debris shooting up the suction boom and into the main hold continued, with Megatron pumping back/recycling waste water.
Stopping temporarily we identified what was still lying in the sewer, examined the filters in Megatron and carried out an inspection to make sure the sheer volume of coarse material hadn’t taken a toll on Megatron.
Megatron continued to show its capabilities and finished the job with no issues or problems whatsoever. Site management were horrified identifying the extent of the material found, which was there before they had started work.
