MN Roto-Rooter’s HydroVac system provides safe, non-destructive excavation. What is HydroVac Excavation? HydroVac Excavation is a non-mechanical, non-destructive, and precise process using water and a powerful vacuum to simultaneously excavate and evacuate soil. As the high-pressure water breaches and breaks up the soil, it creates a sludge which is removed by a vacuum into a debris tank.

MN Roto-Rooter’s HydroVacs dig efficiently using highly pressurized water and vacuum systems to safely excavate and expose (daylighting) underground infrastructure, such as utility locating. Our HydroVacs precisely excavate in several soil types and in practically any environmental conditions, including frozen soil conditions, hard-packed dirt, clay, and in remote locations with difficult or limited access.

Our debris tanks may be located hundreds of feet away from the dig site, and our equipment can excavate dozens of feet deep. Further, our vacuum trucks carry onboard water heaters specifically engineered to provide excavation of frozen dig sites.

At MN Roto-Rooter, we continuously challenge ourselves to implement the latest techniques and technologies, ensuring we perform more efficiently and more safely than the competitors. To help us perform at top efficiency, we utilize multiple dumpsites and water locations around the region. This cost-effective strategy helps us deliver the best services possible at more than competitive pricing.

We provide 24/7 emergency cleanup service, and we always come through for our customers when they need us most.

Our fleet consists of top-of-the-line excavating machines that are ideally suited for a variety of situations and terrain. Our fleet is the best the industry has to offer and regularly maintained for safety and efficiency. We also offer a variety of backfill equipment for all-inclusive service.
