Excavation is very necessary for different projects, in various fields, consisting of removing the earth and excavating the land.
There are different excavation methods and tools, and nowadays traditional excavation is more and more replaced with hydro excavation.
Hydrovac services are much more convenient, for different reasons.
Traditional excavation tools, such as shovels or those bulky backhouses, used to lack precision. For this reason, the risk of damaging underground utilities was high.
Hydrovac excavation is very precise and suitable even for excavating in small spaces. It is non-intrusive because it uses pressurized water and high-power vacuum to break up the soil and remove the resulted debris. Consequently, it is also less dangerous and much more efficient.
It consumes less time than traditional excavation, which is important because we all know that time is money.
Not least, hydro excavation is less harmful for the environment because there’s no risk of damaging ecosystems surrounding the working site and there are no dangerous materials used in the process.
Hydrovac excavation from https://www.hydrodig.com/ is performed with a hydrovac truck, which is a machinery that must be operated by a couple of trained technicians. Obviously, it requires a considerably smaller crew than traditional excavation, which also translates into saving money.
