VAC-A-TEE is a trenchless cleanout installation system that is environmentally friendly, utility friendly and installer friendly. Installed by means of hydro or vacuum excavation, the VAC-A-TEE system is a clean and safe method for installing a new cleanout. The cleanout provides access to the sewer lateral pipe for cleaning, lining, root removal, CCTV, etc. The system involves a patented PVC saddle, riser pipe of appropriate length and proprietary hybrid adhesive/sealant. After a small diameter borehole has been created, the contractor applies the adhesive to the underside of the saddle and then snaps it onto the lateral pipe. Once the adhesive cures, it forms a water-tight seal with the pipe. A diamond core saw is then used to cut and remove the crown of the pipe. Finally, the borehole is backfilled and sod is used to restore the landscaping, leaving the yard virtually untouched.
LMK Technologies has pioneered CIPP lateral renewal technology and has driven the industry forward with new products and technologies to facilitate sewer rehabilitation of sewers for 20 years. In its relatively small lifespan as a company, LMK has invested time and resources in research and development
