CONCRETE BOWL CLEANING

YOU’LL BE BOWLED OVER AT THE RESULTS

Intergroup is the only organisation to offer the Ready Jet System in New Zealand.

Using our service will take ‘a huge weight off your shoulders’.

CONCRETE BOWL CLEANING CAPABILITIES

0.5m3 of dead concrete weighs a tonne. This is the equivalent of hauling a whole car on each trip. Intergroup’s Ready Jet System can remove dead concrete and rid you of this excess weight.

The Ready Jet System uses high-pressure water (instead of manual chipping) to remove hardened concrete from inside mixer truck bowls.
