Argonics, a firm with facilities in Colorado and Michigan, has engineered a new three-part Speedy Sleeve Poly Curb Box
System--the product includes the polyurethane sleeve, a valve box and a PVC extension pipe.
Dwight Dufloth, crew chief for underground utility construction for Fort Collins, Colorado, says the city uses the vacuum capabilities of its unit to clean out manholes, curb boxes
, and valves.
Until the vacuum machine came to work, Covington's Public Works Department had the time to clean catch basins and curb boxes
only in emergencies.
