What is Hydro Excavation and Why do You Need it?

Hydro excavation is considered a non-destructive way to unearthing soil or digging. Hydro excavation is not mechanical as it uses a high-standard vacuum and pressurized water. The water fragments the surrounding soil. The leftover water and soil are sucked up and brought to a tank designated specifically for debris. The continuous process both removes and unearths dirt at the same time. So what is Hydro Excavation and why do you need it?

What is Hydro Excavation and Why do You Need it?

Hydro excavation is a great and safe process for a few reasons:

  • Using hydro excavation instead of alternative methods keeps underground utilities safer. This is because hydro excavation effectively keeps the utilities beneath the excavation area untouched. Alternative excavation methods can cause damage to the underground utilities making for a more dangerous excavation. This safe excavation can allow for work to be done on utilities that are exposed.
  • Hydro excavation can be done in the immediate area needed for repair without harming the surrounding areas. Other alternative methods could potentially harm the areas surrounding the excavation.
  • Hydro excavation is safer for the environment compared to other alternative excavation methods.
  • Hydro excavation allows for remote digging to minimize damage to the actual excavation site. Other methods may not allow for this to be done.

The Power and Precision of Hydro Excavation

By harnessing the naturally erosive properties of water, hydro excavation will amplify your digging capabilities. Hydro excavation is a process that utilizes the most efficient and harmless methods of soil removal possible. Hydro excavating has proven itself as a top-tier method of excavation in utility and pipeline capacities. Let’s explore the benefits of using hydro excavation.

The Power and Precision of Hydro Excavation

Water is responsible for some of the most awe-inspiring views in the natural world. Hydro excavation has harnessed the power of water erosion into the role of an excavator, so it is capable of delivering the shearing forces of water with precision. This allows for very precise work in shortened timeframes.

The process of hydro excavation is also environmentally friendly. The area of excavation also receives far less collateral damage than former excavation practices. Water is an effective medium against a frozen or unmanageable ground. The dislodged soil is simply removed by means of suction, this leaves a predictable and effective method for safe and accurate excavation.

The unseen is the largest variable in most excavation jobs. Hydro excavating has a unique quality to lessen the blow of these unseen dilemmas. Utilities are easily avoided or routed around. The advanced safety training undergone by our excavation crews means that coming in contact with underground utilities is also far less ominous.
