What is Hydrovacing?

Hydro Excavation or Hydrovacing refers to the process of digging all types of soil using high-pressure water and a large vacuum. This method is beneficial to expose underground utilities or to perform a minimal impact excavation. Some examples include digging a bell hole for utility tie-ins, slot trenching, or daylighting. Hydrovacing is a much safer alternative to mechanical excavation because it reduces the risk of striking a live underground utility.

There are many applications for a Hydrovac on your construction site to ensure safe excavation. The cost of hiring a Hydrovac truck outweighs the cost of striking a utility and potentially causing a fatality or severe injury.
