What does a Hydrovac Truck do?
What does a Hydrovac Truck do? One of the safest and most effective excavation methods is Hydrovac Excavation. This is the term used for the excavation
Hydro vacuum (hydrovac) excavation uses special technology to provide a safer, more effective way of excavating a property than traditional methods like digging. Excavation of a property may be necessary for several situations, such as building a new house with a concrete foundation or repairing or installing a drain. An excavation may also be necessary to expose underground utility lines or other underground items.
If your property needs excavation, Mr. Mike’s Plumbing is one of the few companies in Calgary that offers expert services in hydrovac excavation.
Simply put, the process of excavation involves moving or removing soil. Hydrovac excavation uses highly pressurized water to break up the dirt and rocks underground. The remaining debris and slurry of liquefied soil and water are then removed using an industrial strength vacuum from a special hydro excavation truck into a holding tank, uncovering existing utility lines and pipe systems in the deeper layers of the ground. Hydrovac excavation is much safer than manual digging, keeping the risk of breaks or tears to a minimum. It is also more precise than airvac (a similar process, using air as opposed to water). For this reason, hydrovac excavation is one of the most popular methods of removing and cleaning the ground.
Hydrovac systems are used at a variety of construction sites for repairs and inspections. Some of the specific applications include:
As we’ve already discussed, Hydrovac excavation is a safe and effective alternative to traditional excavation methods. Some of the benefits include:
In essentially all cases, excavation is a task that should be left to well-experienced professionals and not attempted on your own. The hydrovac form of excavation dramatically reduces any associated risks and is an effective, cost-efficient method of getting the job done.
