There are many factors that go into deciding how to best excavate a site, whether for plumbing, construction, landscaping, or other project purposes. There are cost and budget considerations, which may rank high on the checklist. Further, there are safety concerns, environmental impact, and productivity components. So, If you need excavation services, read on to learn the benefits of hydrovac excavation and how this non-destructive excavation process may be your best choice.
APPLICATIONS OF HYDROVAC EXCAVATION
Hydrovac excavation is a non-destructive, non-mechanical, and precise excavation process that uses water and a high-powered vacuum to concurrently excavate and evacuate soil. High-pressure water breaks up soil and creates a sludge. The sludge is then removed by a powerful vacuum and stored in a debris tank.
MN Rotorooter’s hydrovacs dig efficiently and safely to excavate and expose (daylighting) underground infrastructure. This method is ideal for a multitude of applications:
- Construction: Good construction means a solid foundation. And foundations can often cover quite a bit of terrain. Hydrovac excavation gets the job done faster, better, and safer than traditional excavation methods.
- Plumbing: Hydrovac excavation is ideal for the plumbing industry because most pipelines and sewers are underground. Hydrovac excavation digs through the soil without damaging underground lines.
- Landscaping: Using hydrovac excavation ensures there is minimal damage, if any, to area landscaping. This means much less restoration work.
COST BENEFITS OF HYDROVAC EXCAVATION
Hydrovac excavation reduces costs across the board compared to traditional excavation methods. Hydrovac excavation is precise so disruption and damages to surrounding utilities, pipes, and the environment are substantially reduced.
For example, in potholing, installing cables, or any number of excavation projects, hydrovac excavation accurately moves soil. Any pipes or underground utilities are not disturbed or damaged. Also, hydrovac excavation is used for landscaping. The surrounding soil is left undisturbed for a stronger landscaping foundation. The product results in less backfilling and fewer repairs.
SAFETY BENEFITS OF HYDROVAC EXCAVATION
Hydrovac excavation provides a safer manner for excavating sites. Less manpower and tools are required. Further, hydrovac excavation is a non-mechanical and non-destructive excavation method. Workers are safe from machinery mishaps, and everyday citizens are safe from construction mishaps.
ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS OF HYDROVAC EXCAVATION
MN Rotorooter’s hydrovac excavation equipment precisely excavates in many soil types and in literally any environmental conditions. This includes frozen soil, clay, hard-packed dirt, and also in remote locations with limited or difficult access. Further, better precision excavating means less material disposal and less restoration required.
PRODUCTIVITY BENEFITS OF HYDROVAC EXCAVATION
MN Rotorooter’s hydrovac excavation process uses much less manpower compared to traditional excavation methods (e.g. digging). Hydrovac excavation is efficient and very fast! So there are definite productivity and cost advantages to choosing hydrovac excavation services.
