Hydro Excavation offers many advantages compared to traditional hydraulic powered trenching and excavation machines. The systems use water and vacuum technology to quickly and with minimal damage blast through dirt and rock and to expose pipelines and other utility systems. Digging trenches with excavation techniques also poses safety hazards. Hydrovac provides a safe and non-destructive alternative to conventional backhoes. The clear advantage is speed. Projects that previously took days can often be completed in hours.
