Water Trailer approved for drinking water transportation
One of the questions we get from municipal emergency management agencies and larger corporations is if there is an economical method of providing clean drinking water via trailer or skid. Gilbert K from Clay County TN exemplifies some of the concerns about providing potable water in his community:
We have a rural community of about 20 residents where drinking water is not always accessible. A water truck service has been costing us a fortune to fill the residential drinking water tanks serving the homes. We are trying to reduce our budget by possibly investing in our own water trailer system but the unit has to be safe for storing and dispensing drinking water. We would be filling the water trailer either at the municipal water treatment plant 20 miles away or by a fire hydrant closer to the community. We also want to make sure that an F-150 truck can safely tow this trailer full. Please provide suggestions and a budgetary proposal. Thank you Gilbert – Clay County, TN USA.
Gilbert, you have a lot of options to provide your own municipal drinking water transportation system. We call it a Continue reading

As the weather improves for commercial grouting jobs it gives us an opportunity to address contractor concerns. One of the comments we heard from contractors who work with grouting jobs before the Sludge Sucker grout pump was made available, is that there was a lack of dependable, compact grout pumps that could easily be moved to job sites with tight spaces. Wastecorp went to work and designed/engineered the Sludge Sucker Professional Grout Pump. Now, this has not been featured on Shark Tank (yet) but we have been thinking about it due to its positive response from construction professionals. Since then, the Sludge Sucker has become a staple for commercial contractors and public works crews to grout door frames, pilings, slab jacking, void filling, mud jacking and many other commercial grouting applications.
