Uplifts Employee Morale

When your team knows that their health and safety are being taken seriously, morale naturally improves. This uplift in spirits is not just good for the work environment but also enhances productivity.

An Answer to a Public Health Threat

Wastewater is a breeding ground for antibiotic-resistant bacteria, often termed “superbugs” including Covid 19 variants. A recent study found that a majority of wastewater treatment plants contained MRSA, a dangerous superbug. The Vanguard system tackles this public health threat head-on.

The Control Box 

The Control Box is the heart of the Vanguard System. It mixes the Vanguard Sani-Solution with water and propels it through the cuff or spray gun. The control settings can be adjusted to suit the specific requirements of your job.

The Vanguard Cuff

The Vanguard Cuff cleans the jet hose by using a mixture of water and Anti-Bacterial-Solution. Best of all, it cleans the hose as it’s retracted back into the truck, removing 98% of bacteria and viruses.

Antibacterial Tank 

The antibacterial solution tank is proven to remove up to 98% of bacteria and viruses from surfaces. The concentration can be adjusted for varying needs, giving your workers complete control.

Spray Gun with low-pressure nozzle and extendable Hose

The system comes equipped with a 15-metre hose and spray nozzle, enabling your workers to clean their equipment and other surfaces in contact with wastewater. The hose can be extendable to over 50 metres allowing easy access for residential easements and longer access requirements.
