The process known as daylighting uses a hydro excavator to safely open up underground pipes or utility lines. Nowadays it’s the preferred technique in urban locations or in areas with complex pipework. Here’s how the process works. It’s easy as 1 – 2 – 3! First, air and water pressure expose the pipes. Then, a hose removes the debris (including but not limited to frozen ground or clay) into a storage tank. Finally, the work area is safe and clear!
Another benefit of this process is a dramatic decrease in downtime, sometimes no longer than ten minutes. Saving so much time means far less risk of losses or collateral damage. Previously these excavations were accomplished by hand, a slow task that could damage wires and lines, or by a backhoe, which was faster yet unwieldy and still hazardous.
Hydro excavation is a great option and very cost-effective. The losses it avoids is no small feat. One estimation determined that outages can cost up to $5,600 per minute! Not only that, there is the intangible cost of poor publicity and losing public trust. Many people rely on these services and not being able to restore them in a timely manner could lead to a public relations disaster. With hydro, however, there is no need to worry!
