  QUESTION: HEPA vacs,13 Apr 2003, New South Wales Australia

Dear sir/madam,

I am trying to find information to business in Australia who sell vacuum cleaners with hepa fillers. I am a member of master painters in NSW the only company they know of is Rupes, which I was not impressed by. I am a lead safe contractor and I am getting sick going to training courses and hearing so called experts who can't give us the information where to buy the tools to do the job. Your web page has nothing about trade information just heart breaking story's about children being poisoned by some uncaring painter. I have worked in the trade for 34 years and have worked on a lot of jobs which would had lead present, my doctor for the past six years has been checking my levels they have dropped below normal. Give us guys a fair go, after all we are the guys on the ground. You can contact me by email or phone 0266727205 or mobile 0414407643 thankyou.

ANSWER: 23 Jul 2003

Dear Stephen,

thanks for your email - it contains some important feedback and has provoked us to consider several changes to our website. Since you have obviously done the Master Painters lead paint management training course, we would like to add your name to the list of such painters on our website at including your email address unless you let us know that you would like it withheld.

When you search our site for "HEPA" there are 40 matches and at least two of these give details about the only HEPA vac designer and manufacturer that we know of in Australia - Safe-T-Vac. We plan to put a link to the Safe-T-Vac website from our site but at the moment, their site does not mention "HEPA". Thus I have written a request to Safe-T-Vac to ask them to include info about their HEPA vac designing and manufacturing service on their website. You can contact them on 1800333822.Our webmaster has also added the list of HEPA equipment supplier companies to our website today - see and a list of HEPA vac hire companies

So thanks again for your feedback and I hope you find the equipment you're looking for.

Yours sincerely
Elizabeth O'Brien
