While Hydrovac is a fairly new method of excavation, it is being recognized as a safer, more effective, and more affordable option over traditional methods. The flexibility our machinery offers means we can not only handle excavation, but we can also be your go-to partner for debris removal and blast cleaning.
What Is Hydrovac?
Hydrovac is an excavation method that uses pressurized water to loosen up the soil. Once it is loosened, a vacuum hose is used to do the actual excavation. This has several different benefits. There is no heavy machinery to use, which reduces the risk for damage and injury. The hoses for the pressurized water and the vacuum can reach into areas where large machinery cannot, which makes Hydrovac a great option in close quarters.
When vacuumed up, the debris is sent into a nearby tanker truck to be removed from the work site. This means there are no piles of debris nearby. Once in the tanker, it can be properly disposed of.

While excavation is the primary use for Hydrovac, it can be used in two other ways. First, it can be used to remove debris and other materials. The powerful vacuum hose can clean out tanks, remove loose debris from the ground, and clean out service lines.
The pressurized jet can also be used independently. In this manner, it functions like a large power washer. At times, it’s used in conjunction with the vacuum to clean tanks that have years of built-up debris. In other cases, it can be used alone to clean interior and exterior surfaces.
