How It Works

What is it?

The Vanguard Pathogen defense system protects wastewater workers by allowing them to quickly and easily clean their equipment, removing up to 98% of bacteria and viruses found on surfaces exposed to wastewater like sewage or water contaminated by medical waste.

The system is easy to install on any combination jet, or CCTV truck and only costs a few dollars a day to operate. Implementing the Vanguard system will save you more than the cost of the system by realizing considerable operational savings.

Save time and money by:

  • Reducing lost time due to illness
  • Lowering health insurance premiums
  • Minimizing liability exposure
  • Removing up to 98% of bacteria and viruses from surfaces
  • Increasing employee morale

Why Vanguard?

Professionals working with jet trucks, combination trucks, or CCTV trucks know that the hose has to be handled often and is the main culprit behind the transfer of bacteria and viruses from the sewer or septic tank to the operator. Leading industry organizations like the Safety and Health in Wastewater Systems, Water Environment Federation, OSHA, etc. have acknowledged these pathogens pose a serious human health risk.

Sewage and wastewater are breeding grounds for antibiotic-resistant bacteria known as "superbugs." A critical study analyzing the wastewater treatment plant found that three out of four plants contained MRSA, a highly dangerous superbug that poses a severe threat to public health.

The Vanguard System

The Vanguard system consists of four major parts that are easily installed on any combination jet or CCTV truck.


Control Box

The Control Box is the brain that powers the Vanguard Pathogen Defense System. It mixes the Sani-Solution with water and pushes it out to the cuff or the spray gun. The Control Box allows you to change the mixture levels utilizing more or less Sani-Solution depending on the requirements of the job at hand.


Sani-Solution Antibacterial Tank

Our patented Sani-Solution antibacterial formula has been verified by independent lab studies to kill and/or remove up to 98% of bacteria and viruses from surfaces. The mixture of Sani-Solution can be adjusted using the control box to give your workers complete control.


Vanguard Cuff

The Vanguard Cuff or collar cleans the jet hose by using a mixture of water and Sani-Solution. The cuff surrounds the hose ensuring it is cleaned on all sides. Best of all, the cuff cleans the hose as it's pulled through the cuff, you don't have to touch the hose, just retract it back into the truck and the cuff will clean it, removing 98% of viruses and bacteria as it's pulled through.


Spray Gun and 50' Hose

The Vanguard system comes with a 50' hose and spray nozzle that connects to the control box and neatly rolls into our heavy-duty reel. It allows your workers to clean the truck, their equipment, and any surfaces that have been in contact with wastewater. When not in use, the hose conveniently automatically retracts back into the reel making it quick and easy to store.

Customer Testimonial - It does so much more than just protect from dangerous pathogens

Working for an agency in Southern California, Matt installed his jet truck with the Vanguard Pathogen Defense System. Afterward, he and his co-worker put it to use in a low area that regularly requires service. But first, they did a run without the Vanguard cleaning collar. They jetted up the line and retrieved their hose coated in the typical black sludge they were used to. Then, they snapped on the Vanguard cleaning collar and put the Vanguard System to the test. With Vanguard protection, the hose was nearly spotless!
