Edmonton Hydrovac Trucks for Non-destructive Excavation

Home | Vacuum Truck Services | Hydrovac Excavation

Hydrovac excavation is a non-destructive approach that safely exposes underground utilities with high-pressure water and a vacuum hose.

Hydrovac excavation, also commonly known as daylighting,  uses a high-pressure water stream to break apart soils that are vacuumed up into a vacuum unit. This process allows for safe excavation of soils around any given underground utility without causing damage. The resulting slurry can be disposed of on-site or at a waste disposal facility. Hydrovac trucks can operate year-round since the high-pressure water is capable of high-temperature water as well as steam. 

Our Hydrovac excavators are perfectly suited to tackle the following jobs with ease: 

  • Buried utility location and exposure
  • Pile hole excavation
  • Slot trenching
  • Culvert, ditch, and manhole cleaning
  • Spill cleanup
  • Pipeline excavation
  • Daylighting
