Hydro Excavation, or daylighting, is an efficient alternative to traditional excavating techniques. Heavy excavating machinery is not always practical and can be unsafe in certain situations. At times backhoes and bulldozers can damage underground utilities which may add delays to construction or industrial projects with the potential for fines or even cause an injury to workers. Hydro-Vacuum Excavation provides a reliable, safe excavation method and it may save you money and time.

High pressure water breaks up the soil, then a high-powered vacuum source is lifts out the soil without damaging or disturbing buried fiber-optic lines, cables, or utility pipes.

Basic Hydrovac Services

We work indoors or out during any season. We provide outside daylighting for utility exposure and can also work efficiently inside buildings for example to dig an elevator shaft where other excavating equipment cannot reach or hand digging is not efficient. Even frozen ground can be removed with hydrovac excavation when mechanical or hand digging just won't cut it.

Advanced Hydrovac's hydro excavation team uses high-volume vacuum trucks and a controlled flow of high pressure water to dig holes and or clear areas, and at the same time, remove the water and soil. Optimum pressures for safely digging through clay, rocky soil, or even frozen earth are selected by our excavation team. This process does not damage buried utilities or harm underground process lines. The soil or material that has been removed can then be transported and dumped off-site, or it can be utilized on-site for backfill purposes or your discretion.

Our hydro trucks are self-contained and transport the removed materials from the site. These hydrovac units eliminate the need for additional haul away equipment or personnel. Utilizing our advanced hydrovac services can help keep busy highways, railway lines, yards or right-of-ways , construction sites and airports less congested by minimizing the amount of heavy equipment and crews brought in. The bonus? Added safety on site.
