Hydro Excavation Over Traditional Methods

Unlike traditional excavation methods, hydro excavation or soft-digging uses high-pressure water and a truck-mounted vacuum to locate underground utilities, including gas and water lines, power cables, telephone cables, and other utility infrastructures. In the cold climate, hydro-vac service is particularly beneficial due to its ability to quickly cut through frozen ground and frost, reducing the chance of damage and costly repairs of mechanical excavating equipment.


Additionally, hydro excavation can be done in critical or hard to reach areas with minimal or no destruction to the surrounding environment, wherein traditional methods can damage trees and landscaping. We are happy to assist you, give us a call to let us know about your requirements.


Why You Should Choose Hydro-Vac Services?

Some of the advantages of hydro-vac services over other traditional methods of excavating are:

  • Reduces damages to the surface and existing utilities, and due to the non-use of chemicals, it is not harmful to the environment.
  • Higher precision, resulting in lesser dumping of materials and subsequently less spending on restoration.
  • Penetrates frozen grounds easily, requiring less manpower as compared to conventional methods.
  • Finally, because of the debris storage container, disposed materials are not left to gather on the road, avoiding traffic disruption and any inconvenience to the public.


How Does Hydro Excavation Work?

The water loosens the soil of the targeted surface while the vacuum is used to suck up the soil and other debris, allowing the operators to dig and create a deep hole without leaving any permanent damage to the surrounding area.
