Robotic cleaning in progress in a live service reservoir

Panton McLeod have supported us for a number of years, their knowledge and experience in reservoir cleaning is second to none, and that’s why they are known as the market leaders.

On top of their technical attributes the whole team from HQ to site teams are brilliant to work with.

Using their PM88 cleaning products we have been able to clean our largest service reservoirs quickly, safely and without the need for scaffolding to reach the top of the internal walls.

PM88 removes biofouling (both old and new) which in turn makes it easier to identify ingress.

This method of working has allowed us to return these critical assets into service in the shortest possible time, and this minimises the risk to our wider distribution network.

I would be happy to recommend Panton McLeod’s work with anyone in the industry.
