Industrial Hydro-Excavation Services and High-Pressure Water Blasting

What is Hydro-Excavation?

Hydro-Excavation is a method of digging up the ground using a combination of high-pressure water blasting and vacuum suction to remove soil and dirt. By using precision water blasting techniques combined with a vacuum system, you can break up and remove the ground without damaging existing utilities.

How Do Hydro-Excavation Services Work?

By utilizing pressurized water to break down the earth in tandem with vacuum removal into a debris tank, hydro-excavation enables the most precise, efficient, and safe way for the location of underground pipes and utilities. By eliminating the need for backfilling, the time and labor costs are reduced.

Benefits of Hydro-Excavation Services

4 Benefits of Hydro-Excavation Services

Increases Precision and Accuracy

In excavation jobs where precision is necessary, hydro-excavation is the preferred method over conventional forms of excavation. This is because hydro-excavation has a higher degree of accuracy as opposed to other methods. The precision with which excavation can be performed using high-pressure water flow helps to eliminate error and minimize time spent digging and backfilling.

Saves Time and Physical Labor

Another advantage of hydro-excavation service is that it helps to alleviate the stress of physical labor on the workers and it also saves time as well because it is faster than traditional labor methods.

Minimizes Traffic Disruptions

As a process that minimizes surface damage, hydro-excavation services can reduce traffic disruptions and other factors that make traditional excavation more problematic.

Reduces Project Costs

All of the above benefits will help ensure that excavation work can be done more quickly and efficiently than before, and reduce costs associated with lengthy projects.
