Hydro Excavation is a non-destructive method of excavation that uses pressurised water and a vacuum system to break up and remove soil and debris. It is commonly used in construction, industrial, and utility applications where precise and careful digging is required, particularly around sensitive underground infrastructure such as utility lines, pipelines, and cables. 

Hydro excavation offers several advantages over other methods of digging, making it a preferred choice in many situations. Our hydro excavation process is safer, cleaner, faster, and more accurate than traditional excavation methods..

Safety First:

Safety is our utmost priority when it comes to any excavation project. Traditional digging methods can pose significant risks, especially when dealing with sensitive underground utilities. This is where hydro excavation shines. By utilising high-pressure water and powerful vacuum systems, hydro technology enables precise excavation around utilities without causing damage. The non-destructive nature of hydro excavation minimises the risk of accidents, utility strikes, and costly repairs. With safety at the forefront, hydro technology ensures the well-being of our team, the community, and the environment.

Cleanliness and Environmental Friendliness:

Hydro excavation goes hand in hand with cleanliness and environmental responsibility, values deeply ingrained in New Zealand culture. Unlike conventional digging methods that produce dust, noise, and pollution, hydro technology eliminates these concerns. The pressurised water efficiently breaks up soil and debris, while the vacuum system simultaneously extracts the resulting slurry. This leaves behind a clean, debris-free work area, reducing the need for extensive cleanup.

Speed and Accuracy:

Hydro technology offers unparalleled speed and accuracy in excavation projects. The combination of high-pressure water and vacuum suction enables swift and precise removal of soil, sand, or even icy ground. This efficiency results in faster project completion, reduced downtime, and minimal disturbances to surrounding areas. Our highly skilled technicians, equipped with state-of-the-art hydro excavation equipment, ensure that every job is executed with meticulous precision and attention to detail. With hydro technology, you can expect timely project delivery without compromising accuracy or quality.
