What Exactly is Hydro Excavation?

Just like an intense charades game, we can break down the meaning of Hydro Excavation by looking at each word separately. “Hydro” is from the Greeks, and the meaning centres on all things water. The Latin language is responsible for  “Excavation” which roughly translated means to expose by  removing. When Hydro and Excavation are combined the two ideas of water and removing sediment and soil to expose an underground asset becomes clear.

At EdenFlo, we use specialized equipment that uses both high-pressure water and an industrial-strength vacuum to excavate the area around what needs to be exposed. The vacuum sucks up the sediment and water mix and places the mixture in a holding tank on an EdenFlo vacuum truck.

Hydro excavation is safer than using a back-hoe. EdenFlo team members are experts at guiding the high pressure water to break up the soil, which virtually eliminates the risk of damage to what you want exposed.

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.

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.

 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 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.
