Hydro excavating, or using a ‘vacuum excavator’ is when high-pressure water or pressurised air loosens soil, so that a powerful vacuum system can suck the soil up, and excavate a certain area. This system is used to quickly and efficiently uncover underground utilities including natural gas and petroleum pipelines, water mains, fibre optic lines, cables and other utilities, while avoiding the risk of damage that is prevalent with traditional mechanical digging.

It’s always best to seek professional assistance to avoid any risks or dangers when excavating. Our utility locating equipment is operated by qualified and experienced personnel, ensuring minimal risk of damage to any underground services, even in highly congested areas.
