Why Hydro Excavation is the Safest Way to Dig and Move Soil

 Whenever you are dealing with construction equipment, safety is always top of mind.  Compared to using a backhoe to access pipes or conduit, EdenFlo’s fleet of vacuum trucks will  provide a way of digging and moving soil in a safer manner. Hydro Excavation is a non-mechanic and non-destructive method of accessing underground assets. Workers will be safe from machinery accidents, while EdenFlo personnel ensure that proper barriers are set up to keep the public a safe distance away from the excavation area.

Why is Hydro Excavation so safe? The process only involves water and an air vacuum. Because large hoses are used in the process, EdenFlo hydro excavation equipment can be  positioned at a safe distance from the actual excavation area. If the area is under, or near a road, the vacuum truck can be parked so that traffic can move safely around an excavation site.

EdenFlo is the trusted hydro excavation service for the lower mainland.

The extensive specialized fleet ensures that your needs will be met quickly and efficiently.

Wherever your Lower mainland hydro excavation needs are, you can count on the trusted experts at EdenFlo Vacuum Pump Truck service to get you the best results. EdenFlo will service Vancouver, Abbotsford, Aldergrove, Surrey, Langley, Burnaby, New Westminster, Coquitlam, Delta or White Rock.  Call us today at 604 575 1414 or contact us for a complimentary review of your requirements.

 Think of Hydro Excavation as the Alternative to a Backhoe

If you are wondering about hydro excavation, you may want to think of it as a soil removal service. Instead of using a backhoe, a vacuum truck uses pressurized water to create a dirt slurry. Once the slurry is of the right consistency, the hydrovac equipment can vacuum the slurry up to uncover existing utility lines and pipe systems with minimal risk of breaks or tears. Once repairs are completed, the slurry can be pumped back into the area.

Hydro Excavation

Hydro Excavation –  A Commercial Specialty of EdenFlo Pump Truck Services

Hydro Excavation is a fast and safe method of exposing underground utilities. One of the greatest benefits of using hydro-excavation over other typical forms of excavation is its ability to safely and quickly “dig” in areas where other utilities might be present, without risk of interruption and/or damage to these systems, or injury to workers and others.

With this service you can avoid costly and deadly contact with underground utilities. Applications include exposing tree stumps for removal, creating landscaping features such as pools, ponds and fountains, digging in hard to reach areas, and hydro trenching for line installation.

Pros and Cons of Preventive Catch Basin Maintenance

We love living in the lower mainland. The mountains merging with the ocean is one of the most beautiful sights in the world. We also live in one of the wettest areas in Canada with almost 100 inches of rain per year.
It’s the rain that creates many of the issues with catch basins in Vancouver and surrounding municipalities. If you own a commercial property that has either a surface drain or an underground parkade with multiple catch basins, you need to weigh the pros and cons of implementing preventative catch basin maintenance.
PROS (Doing Regular Catch Basin Maintenance) 
– cost certainty
– uninterrupted facility use
– peace of mind during significant weather conditions
– happy customers or employees
CONS (Reacting to Catch Basin Back Ups and Blockages)
 
– unexpected costs due to emergency service
– lost parkade revenue
– disgruntled employees
– unhappy customers

Post COVID Vancouver Offices May Have to Compete for Tenants

As vaccinations begin, there appears to be a light at the end of this long tunnel known as the pandemic. This means that in the not to distant future, many of us will be returning to offices to resume pre-covid careers.

Or will we?

Many predict that businesses located in high density urban areas like downtown Vancouver,  may keep their new virtual footprint.  This will lead to less office demand and could mean vacancy for once sought after space.  If you are a property manager, you may want to take a look at how you can make your offering as strong as possible. That starts with keeping your maintenance up to date, including your parkade.

The lower mainland attracts an abundance of rain, and that could mean parkade flooding due to catch basins that are clogged or damaged. It’s wise to have your catch-basin maintenance needs on a regular schedule to ensure that they are draining properly. Nothing is more unattractive for a potential tenant than having to park away from their tower because of flooding issues.

Have the experts at EdenFlo Pump Truck Service give you a complimentary assessment of your catch basin or drain cleaning needs.  Whether your offices are in Vancouver, Abbotsford, Aldergrove, Surrey, Langley, Burnaby, New Westminster, Coquitlam, Delta or White Rock, EdenFlo Pump Truck Service provides both emergency and scheduled maintenance service for your drainage needs.

Reduced Staff at the Office Means a Great Time to Inspect and Clean your Catch Basins

With many lower mainland companies adopting a work at home mentality during the pandemic, now is a good time to inspect and clean your catch basins in your parking lot or parkade. You may find that with less cars parked, exposed drains and catch basins may be sharing clues of needed repairs or maintenance. Trouble may come in the form of water pooling around the basins, slow draining, or debris covering the grates. A catch basin that appears sunken into the asphalt or concrete is damaged and will need remediation. Cracks in the pavement around the drain is another problem area to look out for.

Low ceiling drain cleaning

A Preventive strategy to keep storm drains (catch basins) from clogging is the most effective method to protect your real estate. If you see debris on top of the grates, safely remove it.  A reminder to never attempt to remove the storm grate yourself, only the debris on top. Call EdenFlo Vacuum Pump Service if further action is required.

Don’t wait for a problem. When you need the best catch basin service or inspection in  Vancouver, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Abbotsford, Aldergrove, Delta, Surrey, Langley, White Rock, Richmond or Lions Bay, call the EdenFlo experts at 604 575 1414 or fill out our online request for your catch basin service

Fall Debris and Catch Basins Not a Good Mix

The colours of fall are beautiful in the lower mainland. Leaves are falling and coating the roads with different tints of yellow and red. Unfortunately, the beauty  of fall is not necessarily welcome in parking lots and parking garages.
Fall is the heaviest season for debris.  This debris finds its way into catch basins and drains. If you have not cleaned your drainage system and or storm sewers, you may be in for a rude surprise of clogs that will result in back ups and possible flooding.
