How Does Hydro Excavation Work?

Hydro excavations also known as vacuum excavation or non-destructive digging is a method of excavation that is used to unearth underground services. To perform vacuum excavation, a sucker truck is required. The hose of the sucker truck uses pressurised water and an air vacuum to break up materials such as dirt, earth and debris. It then sucks up these materials into a tank which in turn reveals the underground service. Hydro excavation is a safe way to unearth gas lines, water pipes, sewers lines, telecommunication cables and any underground services. 


    The Benefits of Hydro Excavation

    The reason vacuum excavation is such a popular method of unearthing underground services is because the method is essentially non-destructive. Rather than bring in an excavator to dig around a pipe or cable, which it might damage, the sucker truck provides the same results in less time and with less risk to the underground asset.

    As hydro excavation is performed by a sucker truck, this adds an extra benefit to your site. The vac truck clears up all of the debris and stores it in its’ tank until you require it again. This way, you have a clear site to complete the maintenance or repairs easily without excess earth in the way. Another benefit to non-destructive digging is that you can easily return the site to the way it was before the excavation began.
