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.
