Hydro Excavation - What are the benefits? - Overview
Hydro Excavation is a process used to remove or dig soil. To begin the process, high-pressure water is used to loosen the soil before using an air vacuum to complete the excavation process. The soil is then transferred to a debris tank to complete the process. This debris tank helps keep the area clean.
This method of excavation is helpful for many industries such as plumbing, landscaping, construction, installation and more. Some of the benefits of hydro-excavation are listed below.
Understanding the Benefits of Hydro Excavation
Safety- When you need to access utility pipes and/or lines, traditional excavation is hard to control, sometimes resulting in more repair work than originally needed. Using high-pressure water to loosen the soil before vacuuming it out of the way makes it a safer and more efficient process. It is also an ideal form to excavate when there are lines nearby. This way, you don’t risk further damage during excavation.
Clearing – Hydro Excavation is also a great way to clear out debris that is packed down and would otherwise be difficult and tedious to remove. That is why we emphasize that it prevents damage to surrounding areas. This can also be used to create a trench for the use of putting down utility lines.
Weather – Although not a concern here in Orlando, FL, hydro-excavation offers a solution to excavation and pipeline repairs in sub-zero weather conditions. In fact, the process was first designed to resolve this problem to begin with.
