Easy Spill Bucket Cleanout: Reduce Risk and Apply Best Practices
Spill buckets are essential to every fuel station as they catch small drips of fuel during the delivery process and prevent the accumulation of those drips from leaking out into the environment. But with irregular inspections and limited maintenance, spill buckets can get full of water, debris, and excess fuel. This can cause the bucket to break down - causing contaminants to leak into the surrounding soil. Surprisingly, most convenience stores and gas stations do not have a system in place to safely clean these spill buckets. Even more surprising are the number of stores that have resorted to using items like styrofoam cups, turkey basters, toilet paper, napkins, and even baby diapers off the shelf to soak up those liquids. Without proper cleaning methods for spill buckets, businesses can be levied with huge fines from government entities if they find spill buckets are in violation of code.
To safely clean your spill buckets and prevent any future problems, use SUMPUR™ Spill Bucket Cleanout Kit. The kit comes with the SUMPUR Pump, the telescoping SUMPUR Stick, the SUMPUR Bucket, and CAF Absorbent Pads.
SUMPUR Pump - provides fast, high volume liquid removal of 28 ounces of fluid per stroke. The liquid is then safely pumped out into the SUMPUR Bucket.
SUMPUR Stick – can grip a CAF Absorbent Pad and wipe away any remaining liquid in the spill bucket. The soiled pad can be release easily without being touched, reducing hazardous waste contact.
With safety in mind, the SUMPUR kit allows the user to be standing while pumping or wiping so they are high visibly to motorists. The process of utilizing the SUMPUR kit is also designed to be fast, which results in less labor costs. By using the CAF SUMPUR Spill Bucket Cleanout Kit, you can help create a safe, fast, and easy system for your employees.
