Hydro Excavation is the process of removing or moving soil with pressurized water. An air conveyance or vacuum is then used to transfer the soil or debris to a debris tank. This allows for a non-destructive and more accurate way to excavate soil and locate underground utilities.
Why is it so hard to dig around utility lines without dedicating an entire day and crew to do so?
Using heavy machinery increases the chance to damage lines
Dedicating a spotter for machinery decreases productivity in other areas
Frustration builds for everyone when you can not find the utility line
Large Hydrovac outfits send inexperienced operators that do not value your time and money
Finding a Hydrovac company that knows your struggles and how to help shouldn’t be more stressful than the task you need completed

A hydrovac unit is a great option to complete prep work prior to horizontal directional drilling. The high-pressure water and powerful vacuum system of a hydrovac is strong enough to clear soil and debris of all types.
When compared with the traditional method of excavation, it has made digging much similar. Traditional methods required manual shovel for digging. Other than this, multiple laborers were required and the process was very time-consuming. Also, the use of heavy machinery could pose safety threats to the laborers and damage the surroundings. But these issues have been eliminated by Hydrovac excavation. It’s an environmentally friendly and a non-mechanical method to get the job done.
Utility potholing is used to locate known utilities below surface level by excavating holes. Workers start with a simple pothole of around 8 to 12 inches in diameter and use a vacuum excavator to dig straight down until the utility is found.
This process involves excavating narrow trenches to install pipes, cables or other in-ground utilities
