Hydro excavation is a non-destructive excavation method, which uses pressurized water and a vacuum system to dig. This allows us to make a visual observation of existing underground utilities so that they can be avoided when excavating. Hydro excavation enhances the operation of equipment such as augers, excavators, horizontal directional drilling rigs, etc.
Conventional Excavating Methods vs. Our Method
Highly-pressurized water is used at the desired excavation point. With hydro excavating we use our specialized hydro excavating vehicles. The result is a water/soil mixture that is immediately vacuumed up into our high capacity tank. Our technicians repeat this process until we achieve the required width and depth.
Conventional methods of digging holes require shovels, bobcats, backhoes, and bulldozers all risk damage to hidden services such as sewage pipes, optic and electric cables, water mains and gas pipes. How many times have unexpected underground utilities or private lines caused delays during the construction phase of a project? To help prevent change orders, underground utility damage, surprise main sizes and owner/customer shutdowns, call Rapid Flush to help locate those utilities.
Rapid Flush's hydro excavation method virtually eliminates the risk of damaging existing underground foundations such as expensive fiber optic cables, electric cables, water pipes, sanitary pipes and dangerous gas lines. Rapid Flush can perform safe, non-destructive digging for contractors, cities, utility corporations and industrial facilities
