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 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.

Hydrovac Service More Environmentally Friendly than Other Excavation Options

Hydrovac trucks are widely used in the hydro excavation process because of the gentle footprint they leave compared to backhoes and other, more evasive excavation methods. Hydrovacs are used to excavate all types of materials such as clay, sand, ice, and gravel. EdenFlo’s hydrovac service makes the excavation process non-destructive, smooth, and efficient. Underground fixtures are not damaged in the process. Hydrovac service involves the use of pressurized water and vacuum to remove unwanted debris from the work site.


Hydrovac trucks have two main components which empower the excavation process. First, high-pressure jets which loosen the material being excavated. Second, a strong vacuum hose pulls out all the debris which is transferred to a large debris holding tank.
