If you’re looking to start an excavation project, regular excavation methods and equipment might not always be enough to get the job done properly. In some cases, using conventional digging methods – including shovels – can be fine as long as the work isn’t too taxing and the required accuracy level isn’t too great. If you know you can afford to dig less precisely, you can rent an excavator and get to work. However, if you’re looking for precision and you want to ensure that any underground installations, utility lines or tree roots aren’t damaged, then conventional methods simply won’t cut it.
In such cases, it’s best to consider a hydrovac service to get the job done. Hydrovac services Colorado is home to use advanced hydro excavation trucks to pump high pressure hot water to dislodge the soil in the area and then vacuum the resulting sludge up into a large container. The result is that the jet of hot water will soften the ground, open it up without damaging any underground fixtures, and get the entire work completed much faster than you’d expect. These services are most typically required when using potholing to detect utility lines, or when you require greater precision work during just about any kind of excavation project.
