Hydro Excavation – A Cleaner, Softer Option to Backhoe

Hydro Excavation is sometimes referred to as soft digging as it is less invasive than a backhoe or other mechanized equipment to excavate. With hydro excavation, pressurized water is used to remove the earth to get to the area that requires attention. As the excavation progresses, the water/soil mix is vacuumed up by an EdenFlo vacuum pump truck – rather than leaving large piles of dirt and debris beside the area. This results in a cleaner job with less disruption to foot and vehicle traffic.

Hydro Excavation the Most Environmentally Friendly Option to Expose Underground Assets

Hydro Excavation is the most environmentally friendly option to expose underground assets as the only two elements used in the process are air and water. The expert Hydro Excavation team at EdenFlo Vacuum Pump Truck Services uses high-pressure water to loosen the surface material, and then uses suction and airflow to remove the loose soil material and store it in a debris tank for later disposal from the site or to use as backfill for the project once the excavation is complete. 
Hydro excavation is the least intrusive process and creates a smaller footprint than a backhoe and other heavy equipment. As well, our team are experts in using just the right amount of water pressure to expose the work area, being careful not to damage pipes or conduit.

Hydro Excavation is the Most Accurate Way to Expose Underground Assets

If you are looking for the most accurate and fastest way to expose pipes and other underground assets, Hydro Excavation is your best bet.  A modern vacuum truck injects high pressure water into an area, creating a slurry that is then vacuumed up using a large suction pipe. This ensures minimal damage to whatever you are trying to expose.  Compare this to using a backhoe and trying to get close enough for a worker to try to hand dig to expose the area. The backhoe option is likely to result in damage, will take longer and require a bigger clean up. Hydro Excavation is not only more accurate, it is safer and faster.
EdenFlo team members are some of the most experienced Hydro Excavators on the lower mainland. They have received extensive training to accurately and efficiently get at your underground problem.

 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.

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.

Hydro Excavation 101

Hydro excavation or sometimes referred to as “soft digging” combines two very powerful forces to expose and remove dirt and debris.  It brings together high-pressurized water to disrupt debris and then sucks away the fallout with an industrial strength vacuum. The net result is an area devoid of all unwanted debris in a relatively brief period of time.

If you are a homeowner, you may only need hydro excavating for landscaping purposes or exposing utilities. In either scenario, hydro excavating is an especially beneficial method because it runs little risk of leaving any real damage behind. The process is non-mechanic and also non-destructive.

As a business owner, you might need hydro excavation services for similar reasons. Property managers, for example, might wish to use hydro excavation for utilities on their commercial properties.

However, hydro excavating is also great for industrial activities that involve clearing out large amounts of debris at once. If you’re looking to dig out anything from a swimming pool to a courtyard, for example, this method is ideal.

Hydro excavation and flushing services are especially helpful for construction, as they save so much time, and money, compared with conventional forms of mechanical digging. Hydro excavation is the perfect solution for remote digging where fibre optic cable might need to be laid.  The process is great for cold weather digging, as well.

Wherever your Lower mainland hydro excavation needs are… be it Vancouver, Abbotsford, Aldergrove, Surrey, Langley, Burnaby, New Westminster, Delta or White Rock, EdenFlo provides the best hydro excavation service on time and on budget.

When to Clean Your Catch Basin

A catch basin is something that’s very easy for a busy person to ignore. Catch basins are also known as “storm drains” and are responsible for diverting excess water run-off into proper drainage channels. When they work properly, they help prevent flooding and over-saturation of critical drain fields and homes.

How often you clean your residential catch basin depends on the purpose that it serves. In BC, many places have catch basins that are connected to sump pumps due to the area’s moist climate and high rates of precipitation. For your house, the catch basin should be cleaned every five years if you are not using your sump pump often. If your sump runs frequently, the basin should be cleaned annually and the sump pump should be inspected. You can schedule this service from EdenFlo along with septic tank cleaning and maintenance.

Catch basins shouldn’t be used as dumps for yard clippings or other natural waste. They can not only back up if clogged, but over time, the walls of the basins get caked with debris and their ability to drain run-off is reduced. If the basin is connected to a sump pump, the waste can clog and break the pump itself, which can leave your home flooded during wet weather.

Many commercial catch basins are located in basements, parkades, and parking lots. We recommend that catch basins for commercial properties be inspected and cleaned on an annual basis, preferably before the fall and winter rainy season.

Clogged catch basins may require additional remediation. Edenflo can provide this service. The standard remedy for cleaning a clogged catch basin is called hydro excavation. Pressurized water is literally used to excavate the debris out of the basin. The debris is captured with a vacuum on a pump truck.

Preventative maintenance of catch basins is as simple as controlling what debris goes into them and having the basins cleaned on an annual basis. Doing these two things will enable you to avoid  a clogged or plugged drain.

Whether you have a need catch basin service  in  Vancouver, Aldergrove, Surrey, Langley, Burnaby, New Westminster, Delta or White Rock, contact  Edenflo Pump Truck Services at 604-575-1414 and schedule your annual catch-basin inspection and cleaning today.

Hydro Excavation; Better, Faster, Cheaper Compared to Traditional Digging.

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.

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.

HYDRO-EXCAV-BC-forest

It’s a pretty simple procedure, and for an experienced technician quite quick and easy to execute. Utility companies pioneered the hydro excavation technique because it allowed them to easily locate existing services without damaging them, and install new services quickly and safely. Unlike conventional digging, there’s no danger of destroying an existing service line when digging and destroying it. Landscapers and other contractors adopted the technology because it’s very targeted – it allows 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.

Whether you have an excavation project in  Vancouver, Aldergrove, Surrey, Langley, Buranby, New Westminster, Delta or White rock, forego the backhoe and go with Hydro Excavation.  Contact Edenflo Pump Truck Services at 604-575-1414 and find out how hydro excavation is the best option to get it done, quickly and efficiently.

How Hydro Excavation Works

Hydro excavation is a process that is neither mechanical or destructive and it works to excavate soil while vacuuming at the same time, according to H2X Hydro Excavation. When compared to other excavation methods, this one is far safer because it uses an industrial strength vacuum and pressurized water to get the job done. The vacuum tank will suck up all soil and water slurry as the soil is broken up so there is not a big mess left behind and the water used to do this ensures that underground utility damage does not occur. You will not need to do nearly as much labour, backfill, or restoration and the process is rather environmentally friendly.

What Can Hydro Excavation Be Used For?
This process can be used for a variety of things, such as different types of preventative maintenance and various forms of digging. Common uses include the following:

  • Remote digging
  • Piling hole excavation
  • Removal of debris
  • Daylighting/potholing
  • Slot trenching
  • Exposing utilities
  • Digging in the cold weather

Debris removal is something that can be used for preventative maintenance on your property and it is non-destructive and precise so there is no need to worry about something getting broken or damaged in the process. You can have this done to clean out and remove debris from many different types of structures and everything that is surrounding the area being excavated will not be damaged. If you have a catch basin, for example, you need to maintain this yearly and hydro excavation can be used to clean out the basin, clean up any spills, and remove sludge from it. This will help in preventing clogging and further issues related to your sump.
