Vacuum digging, also known as hydro excavation and non-destructive digging, is an environmentally friendly technique where high pressure water and a vacuum system are used to safely perform excavation work around underground infrastructures and tree roots. The water breaks up hard ground around underground infrastructures and tree roots, while the vacuum sucks in loose slurry into a large tank on the specially designed hydro excavation truck.
This type of excavation work is safer to conduct compared to other excavation methods, as it is carefully planned, requires less labour, and the risk of utilities being damaged in the process is significantly reduced when compared to manual or mechanical digging.
Non-destructive vacuum digging is the safest excavation method available to safely discover and identify any cables, pipes and other utilities under the ground. Utility providers, councils, and telecommunication and construction companies use hydro vac truck services for the following types of jobs:
