Hydro Vac

Hydro Excavation is one of the most popular hydro vac services.  This uses high pressure water and a vacuum system, making it the only non-destructive digging methods.  First, the material that is being excavated is loosened by the high pressure water jets.  Then, the loosened material and excess water is sucked into a large holding tank by a very strong vacuum.  Hydro vac daylighting is used to describe the uncovering and exposing of underground utilities or pipelines to the daylight.

The first action in ensuring pipeline safety is exposing them for evaluation, which can be done through the process of potholing/daylighting.  This is completed by digging an experimental hole that exposes underground utilities (such as pipelines) for analysis. 

Maintenance Excavations

The well-being of pipelines depends upon consistent inspection and maintenance procedures during which pipes must be uncovered from their original, underground state.  Repair excavations performed by hydrovacs are the safest way to effectively reveal pipes for the maintenance they demand with the use of only pressurized water and a powerful vacuum.

Pipeline Installations

In order for new pipeline to be installed, slot trenching, or the digging of thin ditches, must take place.  Whether or not new pipeline is being placed in a congested area, it is essential that excavation is carried out carefully.  Excavation carried out by hydrovacs is the best way to install new pipes or lines without the fear of damages. 

Cleaning Trenches

Hydro Excavation can provide orderly trenches and pits, perfect for laying new pipes and lines.  Using just pressurized water and vacuuming, trenches and pits can be safely become ideal for pipeline laying perfection.
