Hydro excavation is a process that uses highly pressurized water to break up the ground, turning it into a wet “slurry” mixture that is then extracted using a specialized vacuum.
This method of excavation is incredibly precise and allows our professionals to access hard-to-reach areas of your plumbing and electrical lines while causing minimal disruption to the surrounding area.
Below are the main reasons that hydro excavation stands apart from every alternative method.
When it comes to excavation methods, hydro excavation is about as precise as it gets. Using a precisely aimed, thin jet of water, soil can be selectively removed without disturbing important infrastructure.
This allows us to reach areas we need to work on while avoiding the extensive costs associated with having to disrupt anything else.
Not only does the precision of hydro excavation allow us to spare structural components like electric and gas lines, but utilizing this method also reduces the risk of damage to every aspect of your home and yard. You won’t need to worry about as many torn-up plants and destroyed landscaping as a full digup requires.
Hydro excavation removes many of the safety concerns associated with traditional methods of excavation. There is no large amount of soil to move or heavy digging machinery, which makes the worksite a safer place to be for everyone involved.
If you’re forced to excavate soil for a project, hydro excavation is essentially the most environmentally friendly way one could go about doing it. Not only does it cause less disruption to everything around the excavation site, but it also produces less waste than almost every other method. The water used to create the soil slurry can often be treated and reused.
In the right situations, utilizing specialized hydro excavation equipment can save homeowners a lot of money in the long run by allowing them to avoid the associated costs of traditional excavation and all of the potential disruptions caused by its lack of precision.
Traditional excavation methods can be incredibly disruptive to both your neighbors and the environment. Displacing large amounts of soil can have unintended consequences such as disturbing and spreading contaminants already present in the ground — such as heavy metals — and disrupting the environment of borrowing animals and ground-nesting birds.
Not only is our team committed to providing the best hydro excavation in Alexandria, but we’re committed to providing the best plumbing services, period. Our commitment to superior service will extend far past the excavation process, evident in every service we provide.
