Our Combination technology and unique GritGone Process® is a safer and faster method of debris removal that saves valuable time and money through an increased rate of production. We restore capacity to both treatment and collection infrastructure and, if conditions allow, our method significantly reduces the need for confined space entry. At U.S. Submergent Technologies®, we Grit ‘Er Done!®

Every member of USST's experienced Field Crew has completed more than 80(+) hours of safety and compliance training, with ongoing daily on-the-job instruction. Our Crew expertly operates our one-of-a-kind patented technology and strives to provide exceptional customer service.

While most vacuum trucks only have a vacuum, the Combination Truck features a jetter and combined vacuum and downhole system to produce powerful results other technologies cannot match, including:

  • Clean while facilities remain in service with no facility shutdown or bypass pumping
  • Remove material in submerged or surcharged conditions
  • Reduce or potentially eliminate the need for confined space entry
  • Paint-filter dry material, ready for disposal, with our GritGone Process®
  • Extended reach with 49-foot extendable boom
