How Does Hydro Excavation Work?
Hydro excavation uses the combination of high-pressure water to break up hard, impacted soil and a vacuum to then remove the resulting slurry, putting it into a debris tank. Underground utility strikes can be inconvenient or even catastrophic, resulting in the loss of utility services to possibly thousands of people, and in the worst cases, resulting in injuries or even death. Hydro excavation is a non-destructive means to safely locate utilities and excavate an area in a precise manner. It’s becoming the way to safely excavate in communities across America.CONTACT US
What Can I Use Hydro Excavation For?
In geographic areas where the ground is frozen, using warm water makes the hydro excavation much easier. Developers, contractors, and municipalities are finding multiple uses for this service:
- The installation and location of lines, signs, and poles
- Potholing and daylighting
Benefits of Vacuum/Hydro Excavation
- Less congested work area.
The excavation can be done from a distance, so fewer workers are present in the same area of a busy construction site.
Hydro excavation is safer than the traditional mechanical excavation. That means fewer injuries to workers and bystanders.
- Less damage to the surrounding area.
Plus less damage to underground cables, lines, or pipes that are already providing numerous services to homeowners and businesses in the area. Repairs are costly and lessening the chance that you will need to make any will save you time and money.
- Protects your reputation.
Having a clean safety record means more business for you.
