HYDRO EXCAVATION

WHAT IS HYDRO EXCAVATION?

  • NON DESTRUCTIVE DIGGING (NDD)
  • POTHOLING

 

Hydro Excavation is a non-destructive process using high pressure water for blasting of the earth while vacuuming the spoil into the truck’s collection tank. Our combination hydrojet/vacuum industrial plant enables us to undertake Non-Destructive Digging and hydro vacuum excavation, providing an alternative to jackhammering and drilling. This reduces risks of damage as well as reducing noise pollution and disturbance to neighbouring surroundings.

Hydro-Excavation2

Hydro-Excavation or ‘Pot Holing’ is ideal to visually locate the depth of fibre optic services, gas mains or water services prior to excavation to minimise or prevent damage to the services from general excavation methods. This method is suitable for sensitive environments and Heritage listed areas.

 

All waste is deposited at registered EPA handling and recycling sites.

 

The range of applications includes:

  • Potholing and excavating around gas, water and sewer pipes
  • Drain cleaning
  • CCTV scanning to assess condition of pipes and maintenance issues
  • Clearing of blockages
  • Debris removal and transportation
  • Vacuum loading and tank cleaning
  • Hazardous waste removal
  • High pressure cleaning
