Hydro Excavation

The Expert in Hydro Excavation in Columbus, OH, and the Surrounding Areas

Excavators are renowned for being useful for professionals in different industries to break the earth. Although this method of digging has proved effective in different applications, it did require a few improvements. For one, using excavators poses a great landscaping problem, which calls for major and often costly restoration projects.

By making it possible to move soil without having to break the earth, Complete Utility Excavation now offers a useful solution that does away with the damage. We are well-equipped when it comes to hydro excavation services for our commercial and municipal clients.

What Is Hydro Excavation?

Hydro excavation is the process of moving soil by injecting heated, pressurized water into the earth, and using the vacuum this water creates to remove the soil. With hydro excavation, a specialized truck uses very high-pressure water to dig holes in the ground.

Hydro excavation can be used to dig up holes for a number of purposes. These include finding buried utility lines, soil drenching, cold weather digging, debris removal, and rehabilitation of pipes and sewer lines. Since all these processes are interlinked, make sure to rely on Complete Utility Excavation, the leading hydro excavator in Columbus, OH, and other areas we serve.

How Does Hydro Excavation Work?

Hydro excavation trucks combine high-pressure water and air vacuum. By reducing the soil's holding strength, this water loosens up the soil, making it easier to break. An air conveyance system is then used to direct soil and other debris into a tank. It is a non-mechanical and non-destructive way of safely exposing buried utility lines and even sewer lines. It has largely replaced traditional excavation techniques, even becoming the preferred method that most oil companies use exclusively. At Complete Utility Excavation, we provide hydro excavation in the following locations:

  • Cincinnati, OH
  • Lancaster, OH

How Does Hydro Excavation Benefit You?

The water used in hydro excavation does not have a destructive effect on the soil. Compared with other methods of excavation, hydro vacuum excavation does not pose health hazards to people and nature. The high precision of hydro excavation also results in less disposal of earth, thereby maintaining a tract of land's natural landscape. Dirt is also stored in the debris tank, which means less pollution to the environment. When it comes to pipe and sewer rehabilitation, hydro excavation minimizes the risks for damage. This eliminates the additional time and cost that repairs require.

Hydro excavation also requires less manual labor than traditional digging. The process involves digging through the soil without damaging any lines or utilities, hence saving money by eliminating expenses and needs for repair or restoration. In addition, construction work can be dangerous, which is why using hydro excavation helps ensure our clients and their properties, as well as our technicians, are safe. Hydro excavation thus reduces risks, repairs, liability, and insurance costs.
