The most common use of vacuum excavation is to safely locate utilities, without damaging lines. Using a vacuum excavator helps prevent additional costs, time delays, and injuries.
Hydro excavation is the safest and most efficient method of exposing underground utilities. Since it uses water to break up ground and vacuum up debris, it eliminates the risk of damaging buried utilities inherent with mechanical or manual excavation methods. Using hydro excavation to expose utilities, which is called potholing or daylighting, ensures that the surrounding material is undisturbed. Since it is a non-destructive process, hydro excavation eliminates the risk of damage to buried cables and pipes. Using hydro excavation enables the location, type, and depth of the utility to be accurately established.
Not only is hydro excavation faster and more accurate, but it also does less damage to the surrounding soil than mechanical excavation and thus minimizes site restoration time and expense.
In instances where utility lines are mismarked or their location is unknown, using traditional excavation methods such as augers or hand digging can cause potential delays, safety hazards, and service interruptions. Hydro excavation can quickly and safely expose utility lines without those risks. Pipes can then be installed parallel or across existing lines, repairs made to existing lines, or new utility lines installed without safety or service concerns.
