Benefits of Hydro Excavation

The benefits non destructive digging / hydro excavation brings to industrial excavation are numerous. It is becoming the most preferred method of digging because of its efficient and accurate results. Ultimately, we make life easier for our contractors, project personnel and our clients.

When compared to mechanical methods, the main benefit of hydro excavation is that it ensures a higher level of damage control and greater safety. The accuracy is known to protect laborers and other project personnel, minimising injuries and accident risks on the site. For pipe and sewer rehabilitation, it also protects pipes from further damage. This could be a significant financial saving, given the cost and time loss of repairs is high.

By reducing the safety hazards and ensuring repairs are kept to a minimum generally speaking, non destructive digging / hydro excavation may reduce insurance premiums and liability costs – which is a positive long-term benefit.
