Our Hydro Excavation Services

Pot Holing

Potholing is the process of digging a test hole in the ground in order to expose underground facilities. Once these are exposed, the facilities are checked for cracks, leaks, or any other kind of damage. We do this industrially, commercially, and residentially, and it’s recommended that everyone checks their facilities from time to time. Potholing is a cheap and efficient way to do this.

Exposing Utilities

In order to expose utilities, a combination of pressurised water as well as a vacuum is needed in one mobile unit. The water is then injected into the ground by using a handheld wand to wash away the soil in the area in a safe way, while the vacuum hose removes all of the waste soil and water at the same time. Our experts are trained and highly experienced and are able to take care of this process safely and efficiently.


Material Removal

If you’re in the middle of a landscaping or construction project, the debris and material removal side of things can be a daunting task. We’ll take care of it all for you. We are able to remove all kinds of unwanted materials, including vegetation, concrete, and asphalt. We have the highest quality of equipment that allows us to get the job done as quickly as possible so you can continue on with your project.
