Exciting! Smart. A Must Have Tool.

 Those are just a few of the comments customers are making about The Blue Screw That's good to hear, because that's exactly the ideal behind its invention . Time is money, and The Blue Screw saves time on job by reducing man hours. By using The Blue Screw, workers cut their time by 75% performing necessary maintenance and repairs on the millions of valve stacks currently in existence throughout the US. That equates to lower infrastructure maintenance costs. Manufactured and patented in the USA, The Blue Screw features solid steel construction, making it as durable as it is efficient and easy to use. While the standard length is 5'8", custom lengths are also available. Since it's simple design requires nothing more than two arms to power, The Blue Screw eliminates the need for gas-guzzling vac-trucks or other expensive equipment, which many municipalities are STILL using to clean valve stacks. That makes our tool Eco Friendly! And THAT keeps everybody happy. Take a look at that picture above and you'll understand why we say "If they're laying down on the job, you're losing money!"

"Built Strong Like America"!


"After receiving a email from Armco Utility & Valve Box Solutions and I watched the "See It Work" on their website.

I was a little leery to purchase since the video shows only dirt being remove and in my district we run across asphalt, stones, and other types of debris in our valve boxes. In fact, since we've done our GIS mapping a year ago and we've put our sections into ten large grids, I've been amazed how many times we have used the Blue Screw on a daily basis.

Only being given one year to completed our valve exercise program, the efficiency of the Blue Screw is beyond my expectations. In fact, beyond the normal debris that we come by,"The Blue Screw vs. The Copper Head Snake" is a true testimony to the hidden value of their product. The snake lost and no ones safety was compromised in cleaning out the valve box.

Thank you for developing such a great tool!
