We Take Confined Spaces Seriously
Our employees’ and customers’ safety is of utmost importance. When it comes to confined spaces, we realize our guys are placed in potentially life-threatening scenarios and make every effort to facilitate a safe work environment.
OSHA defines confined space as an area that has one or more of the following characteristics:
- Contains or has the potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere
- Contains material that has the potential to engulf an entrant
- Has walls that converge inward or floors that slope downward and taper into a smaller area which could trap or asphyxiate an entrant
- Contains any other recognized safety or health hazard, such as unguarded machinery, exposed live wires, or heat stress
We most often encounter confined spaces when performing work pertaining to tanks, pump chambers, manholes, or an indirect waste pit. We only allow technicians with Confined Space Entry (CSE) licenses to work on these types of jobs, and we require 3 licensed technicians skilled in CSE to work collaboratively in these technical and dangerous situations.
PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWER…..itty bitty working space

With ample members licensed in CSE, we carry the experience needed to safely get the job done. To learn more about confined space entry or any of our other services, Contact Kline’s.
What Should You Do With Car Wash Waste?
It feels great to drive a freshly cleaned car. Don’t you just love sporting those shiny wheels and a dust-free exterior when you first pull out of the car wash? True, that feeling is cut short when the thunderstorm arrives an hour later, but at least you had your glorious stretch on the road during that brief period. Car washes provide a convenient service, but you probably don’t think about what happens to all that dirt that was washed away from your vehicle. The truth is, car wash waste has great potential to harm the environment, so precautions must be taken. If you own a professional car wash, make sure you are taking responsibility for the wastewater your business produces.
What’s So Harmful?
Car wash waste includes a ton of yucky stuff. Oil and grease get washed from vehicles, along with the normal grime and grit. All of this can clog storm drains. Hazardous contaminants like lead, pesticides, nitrates and other chemicals also end up in car wash drains. Detergents used to clean the vehicle often contain phosphates, which are dangerous to fish and plants.
How Do You Safely Dispose Of It?
Wastewater should be routed to water treatment facilities so it doesn’t infiltrate the public water system or pollute the environment. You can also have a qualified service provider like Kline’s come and haul it away. It’s a complicated process to properly treat and dispose of car wash waste in a safe and legal manner, rely on the help of experienced professionals.

Is It Possible To Inspect Sewer Lines Without Excavating?
Advancements in wastewater maintenance solutions continue to bring simpler and more affordable ways of finding and fixing sewage problems. New technologies are now being utilized to save technicians and customers a great deal of valuable time and money. One of our most significant innovations has been the ability to see underground sewer components without having to dig them up.
It used to be impossible to see what was going on in sewer lines unless you dug up the pipes to take a look. Well, that is no longer the case with the development of video cameras designed especially for the wastewater industry. These special cameras designed to travel through piping can quickly “see” the inside of drain lines and go to great lengths to find trouble spots. Technicians simply set up the camera and feed it into the drain until they find the problem. They then analyze the video to pinpoint the location and identify the source of any obstructions.
The cameras not only spot things that are clogging our drains, they also find red flags that could lead to bigger problems. These include unexpected leaks, line breaks, water damage and rust spots that could cause future issues. They are also great for finding lost valuables like jewelry or other small objects that accidentally fall down sinks or get flushed down toilets.
No More Digging
Video cameras have truly been a game changer in the wastewater industry, allowing us to see what was once impossible without the hassle of excavation. Their ability to record what’s going on underground helps us identify current problems as well as find unforeseen issues. This makes them a valuable instrument for our techs as well as an effective preventative maintenance tool.
