Portable washout containers augment environmental compliance at job sites

The Porta-Pit is available in standard 1.5-yd. and 0.5-yd. sizes, 40-in. and 12-in. high, respectively.  Joining the company’s mixer truck-mounted washout containers are the 0.5- and 1.5-yd. Porta-Pit vessels, plus companion Water Dog absorption bags. At 150 lb. (empty weight) with 44- x 42-in. footprint, the larger Porta-Pit features high-strength, cross linked polyethylene plastic construction with rugged steel fork lift channels and side supports.

Coupled with Water Dog bags, the Porta-Pit is designed for the easy collecting and disposing of concrete washout materials and water on jobsites. A custom security lid is designed to keep workers and site visitors safe when the bin is partially full and not in use, and address environmental guidelines to prevent overflow from weather events. Each vessel is equipped with adjustable ratchet tie downs.

“The Porta-Pit is the other half of the Washout Watchdog equation [and] the perfect solution to handle concrete washout materials on the job site,” says System Developer Les Connard. “Pumpers will also benefit from the smaller units created specifically for them. They’re easy to handle, highly durable and cost effective.” — Watchout Washdog, 626/247-8766; www.porta-pit.com
