What is Hydrovac Excavation?

Hydrovac excavation is the process where the soil is displaced or removed from an area by the use of pressurized water in addition to a vacuum truck.

Benefits of Hydrovac Excavation?

Hydrovac excavation allows for professionals to complete a job with higher accuracy and fewer problems than with conventional techniques.

The non-mechanical nature of the process reduces your project labour costs, reduces traffic on your job site, provides better accuracy while digging, as well as reduces the risk of cracking items such as utility pipes that are beneath the surface.

Finally, Hydrovac services is perfect in Canada’s cold climate – pressurized warm water easily penetrates frozen ground. This means you no longer would have to wait till spring and can accomplish your project much faster.
