Vacuum Excavation

From a simple trench in your front yard to public road upgrades, vacuum (hydro vac) excavation is the most advanced form of non-destructive digging available today. It involves the use of a high-pressure water jet to break down the soil in an area, and then evacuating the resulting slurry using a powerful vacuum.

As there are no machines tearing into the ground, this form of excavation is particular useful for accurate location of services such as electricity, gas and water utilities. It quickly and effectively exposes all sides of the pipe or powerline, providing personnel with a complete picture of what is under their worksite.
We often utilise this technique when creating entry and exit points during our directional drilling to ensure the process is completely safe and does not disrupt any local utilities. Vacuum excavation can also be used for:
  • Pot-holing
  • Site cleaning
  • Exposing utilities
  • Trenching
  • Civil works
  • Mud/slurry removal
  • Postholes
