Hydrovac Excavation

‘Hydrovac’ or ‘Hydro Excavation’ is a non-destructive process of digging the soil or ground. This method includes injecting a powerful stream of pressurized water into the ground to soften it.

Afterward, a vacuum system will collect the mixture of soil and water into the attached storage tank safely. Some applications of hydrovac excavation include digging into the ground, collecting debris, and discovering underground facilities like gas lines or pipelines.

Hydro Excavation is more precise compared to any other type of excavation. As a result, you can save time, money, and the environment. Furthermore, the risk of damaging underground utilities and adjacent soil is significantly reduced.

Below are some of the best uses for hydrovac excavation.

Slot Trenching

Hydrovac is an excellent way to create narrow trenches because it can minimize soil disturbance. If you’re working on a project that requires locating underground utilities or installing small diameter pipes, this method is your best approach.

Debris Removal

Hydrovac excavation can also be used to remove debris from sewers, manholes, and drainage systems without causing damage to existing infrastructure. 


Hydrovac excavation is the best method to expose subsurface utilities without causing damage to them. 

Tight Space Excavation

When you are excavating in tight or limited spaces such as small backyards, or narrow streets, it is practically impossible with traditional excavation equipment. Not only will excavation be done manually, but it also takes more time. Hydrovac excavation is the most effective way to get things done quickly and economically.

Hydrovac excavation is a good alternative to mechanical excavation. Here are some of the key benefits of hydrovac excavation.

Minimal Risk of Injury or Damage

Hydrovac excavation uses water pressure to cut through tough grass and soil while posing minimal risk to passerby and underground utilities. This method reveals wires and pipes by softening and vacuuming up the soil rather than using heavy backhoes and other equipment to scoop dirt up.

Use in Winter

Hot water hydrovac systems can heat up and soften even frozen soil during winter. This allows construction and repair projects to continue even in cold months.


Hydrovac operators use a handheld pressurized wand to direct the stream of water that cuts through and softens the soil. They can easily maneuver around tight quarters with minimal disruption to the environment. The wands used in hydrovac excavation are small and flexible, allowing them to maneuver even if there are nearby obstacles such as streetlights, signs, and adjacent utility systems.

Timely Project Completion

Traditional excavation tools can tear through utilities and damage pipes easily. This can lead to interruption and delays that can make construction projects miss key deadlines. 

Hydrovac excavation is a gentler process that won’t disrupt or delay your project. Furthermore, it is a fast and convenient process leading to timely project completion.
