Vacuum Digging also called Vacuum Excavation or Soft Digging is the safest way to visually confirm the exact location and depth of a given underground facility with visual confirmation the only way of being 100% certain.

Vacuum Digging uses a high volume vacuum to literally suck out the dirt and small rocks creating a clean cut hole which will safely expose the underground facility.

Our Pot-holing, Vacuum Excavation, Hydro Excavation and Slurry Removal Service offer a fast, cost effective, no mess solution for the locating of, and digging around, existing underground services. This system is becoming the method of choice, as it is a non-destructive method in which the existing underground services are protected.

The use of this method provides significant reduced risk of damage to existing plant during construction. This unit is able to perform all possible functions such as underground excavation, trenching and other civil works.

In the past this was undertaken by traditional methods of open excavation, which became costly when digging around existing services.

How it works

This method uses a high-pressure water jet to break up the soil and a powerful vacuum to remove the soil. The specifically designed wand can dig in any soil condition with minimal operator effort, while providing no threat to the existing underground services.

All operators are fully trained in the operation and use of the equipment. They adhere to strict guidelines ensuring safety and EPA regulations are followed.
