Smart Plumbing and Landscape Contractors Choose Hydro Excavation

It’s no surprise that contractors choose a hydro excavation partner rather than a backhoe service to expose underground assets. Hydrovac excavation is more efficient and faster than mechanical removal of soil for septic tanks, sewer lines, trenches, and poles for other utilities.  It’s becoming standard procedure when you need fast, accurate  and safe excavation done in a hurry.

Here’s how it works:
Hydro excavation is also called potholing or daylighting. The procedure involves blasting the soil to be removed with a high-pressure water jet, breaking it up and mixing it with the liquid. The resulting slurry is removed quickly by vacuum, and contained in the truck for appropriate disposal.

Unlike conventional digging, there’s no danger of destroying an existing service line.  Landscapers and plumbing contractors prefer this technology because it’s very targeted,  allowing you to pinpoint the location of your excavation with minimal damage to adjacent property. Hydro excavation is ideal for stump removal, drilling of postholes, and installation of landscaping features like ponds and man-made streams.

Because hydro excavation is relatively “hands off”, it is safer for the workers involved in your project, and it can be used year-round, using hot water when the earth is frozen in winter.
