Hydro Excavation in Melbourne

hydro excavation Melbourne

Hydro Excavation, also known as, Non Destructive Digging (NDD), Vacuum Truck Excavation, and or Pot Holing, is the safe and efficient alternative to mechanical digging, excavating, and auguring.  Our Hydro Excavation services give our team the ability to safely excavate soil and material without the risk of damage to possible underlying utilities.

Hydro Excavation Services use a powerful  water jet and vacuum truck.  This technique uses high pressure water jetting to loosen and breakup the ground, and a high volume vacuum loading to remove the lose soil and material and duct it into debris tank of the truck.
