    Question Vacuum tankers?

    My dept. is going to purchase a tanker this year (that would be tender for you left-coast types ).

    There has been some talk of getting a vacuum tanker with a smallish PTO driven fire pump. Any experiences with vacuum tanks - good or bad?

    I'm not convinced it's the way to go, but then we could always make some extra money on the side cleaning out septic tanks .

    a ship in a harbor is safe. . . but that's not what ships are for

    At a Rural Water Supply class, we had a contest among 10 different tankers.

    The vacuum tanker won hands down, most GPM delivered, fastest filling, fastest loading, great maneuverability and lowest cost.

    Burlington, CT has two.
