What is Hydro Excavation?

The hydro excavation process is a huge part of a wide variety of projects. Traditional methods can be extremely labor intensive and expensive. Using a backhoe requires a heavy tractor and backfilling, and manual digging yields high labor costs. Conventional methods are out of date and too expensive. Contractors are always looking for ways to minimize costs and get jobs done more quickly.

Bottom Line?

Hydro excavation is the faster and most cost effective method for digging. This process works best for very large areas and keeps costs to a minimum.

Hydro excavation is used in a wide variety of industries. This environmentally safe and efficient method helps contractors of all trades get jobs done fast while minimizing costs.

For Potholing/Daylighting, Slot Trenching, debris removal, exposing utilities, piling hole excavation, cold weather digging, and remote digging, PowerVac can get you started.

Processes that Utilize Hydro Excavation:

Hydro excavation is a non-mechanical, non-destructive excavation method that uses pressurized water and industrial strength vacuum to simultaneously excavate and evacuate soil. As hydro excavation safely breaks up soil, the soil and water slurry is sucked up by a vacuum to a debris tank.

Hydro excavation uses water to break up soil instead of manual or mechanical digging methods. This virtually eliminates any risk of damaging underground utilities. The hydro excavation process results in safe, fast, and precise digging that require less backfill, labor, and restoration. Hydro excavation has less environmental impact than traditional excavation techniques and doesn’t use any chemicals.
