Hydro Excavation Services in Victoria

Mar. 12, 2015

There are times when digging can be done without much hassle with just a pickaxe, a shovel, and some other extraneous tools. However, for high-volume digging and land moving, especially of the industrial sort, there is a need to bring out the big guns. Unfortunately, most of the industrial-grade digging tools that get the job done fast also tend to be somewhat clunky and inefficient when it comes to damage management, not mention pricey.

Suffice it to say that the bigger the tool is the more costlier it will be, and the more possibility for unwanted damage to occur while in the process of excavating – something which leaves much to be desired if the intention of the excavators are to mitigate, instead of exacerbate, the damage. Thankfully, there are new and more efficient ways of excavation that no longer have to rely on heavy-duty machinery, with the latest and most advanced of the lot being hydro excavation.

Hydro excavation - a new way of digging and moving land

As the name suggests, hydro excavation is the process of digging in the ground without the use of expensive heavy machinery or manual equipment, but rather employing pressurised water to act as a ‘shovel’ that digs. Unlike typical forms of excavation, hydro excavation promises to provide a safer, more efficient, more reliable, and less damaging way of digging. It’s a new way of digging, one which guarantees fast and consistent results at an affordable price.

Of late, hydro excavation services in Victoria rank as some of the best in the industry, with more and more businesses preferring the use of hydro excavation versus the regular types. This is due to the obvious benefits and far more superior results, which are as follows:

  • Hydro excavation is fast and efficient. Because it uses pressurised water to slowly soften and later ‘dig’ the hard ground, it easily breaks up a vast area in a short period of time, without requiring large amounts of manpower or hard labour.
  • It is precise and clean. Hydro excavation machines can not only be especially adjusted to fit any custom-sized digging specifications, it can also be specifically controlled to provide above-accurate digging measurements via mechanical controls. The resulting slurry from the excavation can readily be channeled away from the site using specialised motor pumps, allowing for a faster overhaul or debris, and a far cleaner working site.
  • Hydro excavation is safe and effective for all weather conditions. Unlike heavy machinery and digging tools that will inevitably hit pipes, damage waterlines, and accidentally cut power-cables, hydro excavation is excellent for congested areas where too many pipes are jammed into one space, or in areas where there is a risk for damaging integral pipe-ways.

Because it uses pressurised water, it is able to easily break down the dirt and soil around a congested area of, say, a water-line inset, without damaging a single one. Furthermore, thanks to an easy-to-equip heating apparatus in most hydro-excavator trucks, digging can be done even in the dead of winter when the ground used to be too hard to break through. This also does away with the need for chemical thawing, which is not only dangerous to the environment, but also very unforgiving towards the workers.

If you’re looking for a fast, efficient, dependable, clean and safe way to excavate, don’t settle for the run-of-the-mill machinery. Opt for hydro excavation services in Victoria and revolutionise the way you dig! Visit their website at http://apexvac.com.au/ for more information.
