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.

HYDRO-EXCAV

Hydro excavation is a new form of digging. More efficient and faster than mechanical removal of soil for septic tanks, sewer lines, and trenches for other utilities, it’s becoming standard procedure when you need fast and accurate holes dug 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.

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.

Next time you have an excavation project, forego the backhoe. Contact Edenflo pumping at 604-575-1414 and find out how hydro excavation can help you get it done, quickly and efficiently.
