Lower Mainland’s First Choice for Pump Truck Services

Edenflo is the lower mainland’s first choice for residential and commercial pump truck services. Businesses choose us because we have an extremely wide range of services available, a large selection of available equipment, and experience serving the needs of our large and diverse corporate clientele.

We offer the best service to Food Service and Production clients, including Grease Trap and Grease Interceptor cleaning and maintenance, as well as food and organic waste disposal. We offer commercial sanitary services, including holding tank and treatment plant service and maintenance, cleaning and maintenance to sewer lines and pumping stations, and commercial vacuum services.

For those businesses with buildings to maintain, we offer storm drain and catch basin cleaning services, including “lowboy” truck service that’s able to get into underground parking lots and other hard-to-service areas. When a problem occurs, we can positively diagnose blockages and other problems using Video Line Inspection technology, in which a camera is placed at the site of the problem, allowing us to see exactly what’s going on.

We also offer hydro excavation services, which appeal to a large number of clients in diverse industries. Hydro excavation is removal of dirt and other material by “digging” with a high-pressure water jet, and removal of the dislodged material with our vacuum truck. This allows us to unearth utility lines, underground pipes, and other services without disturbing them.

Whether you have a need for vacuum pump service  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 what the best vacuum pump option is to get it done, quickly and efficiently.

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.

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.
