There's a reason we call our best selling valve maintenance system the "Standard" (trailer or skid), because it includes all the tools necessary for valve crews to preform normal, routine activities all with a single piece of equipment (locate, clean & exercise). Too often decision makers focused on the bottom line only purchase the best valve assessment & exercisers (Wachs TM-7 & ERV-750), but then forget about the hydro excavation support which allow the valve machines to even access the valve!

So instead, they have to carry extra generators and vacuums purchased from the hardware store which where never designed to handle the debris and depth of utility vaults. The below pictures I took while walking through the streets of London showing Thames Water workers preforming routine vault cleaning.
