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.
