HYDRO EXCAVATION-VACUUM EXCAVATION

As an addition to our superior electronic service locating throughout Canberra & surrounding areas, PLUMBTECH can provide a hydro/vacuum excavator for confirmation of electronic locates by exposing the service with a non destructive water jet accompanied with a high pressure vacuum.

Hydro-Excavation is a non-mechanical and non-destructive process which combines pressurized water and a high flow of moving air to simultaneously excavate and evacuate native soils at a controlled rate. The soil and water slurry are conveyed by vacuum via an 6" tube to a truck-mounted debris tank. This process allows for quick, clean and precise excavations which require less backfill, less labor force, less restoration, and less environmental impact than conventional digging methods. A controlled flow, low-volume water stream allows for surgeon-like accuracy. This process removes only the amount of material necessary for repair or inspection, minimal material needs to be removed when compared with the large, less-than-accurate excavator or back hoe bucket.
