Utilize Our Hydrovac Services in Edmonton for Versatility & Safety

When installing new sewer lines or updating old utilities, your backyard can undergo a lot of damage during the excavation process. Using typical equipment, an excavation company can tear up all of your landscaping. Canessco Services Inc. has the solution—hydro excavation or hydrovac. In Edmonton, this process is used to remove soil with pressurized water rather than digging it up. This causes much less damage to areas around the excavation site, which will leave your existing utilities and your plants and landscaping intact. If you’re interested in learning more about the hydrovac excavation process, contact our expert team to discuss your options.

Benefits of Using Hydro Excavation

Combining high-pressure water and an air vacuum, hydrovac excavation can cut through soil to break it up while at the same time lifting the slush away from the excavation area. This process offers many benefits that conventional excavation services are unable to provide, including:

  • Versatility: The cold weather in Edmonton often causes the soil to freeze, which means most excavations cannot be done. However, hydro excavation can use heated water to excavate frozen ground.
  • Comprehensive: Hydrovac excavation is essentially an all-in-one process. Rather than needing to dig out dirt and move it somewhere else, hydro excavation uses the high pressure water to wash away the debris at the same time as the vacuum is sucking the sludge up.
  • Applications: Excavation is needed to install utilities, but hydro excavation can do much more. This process is perfect for line, sign and pole installation and location, as well as remote excavation sites and underground utility location.
  • Safety: When compared to mechanical methods, hydro excavation causes much less damage and is much safer. A very accurate process, hydro excavation limits accidents and injuries for laborers and by standers, while also avoiding damage to underground pipes, lines and cables.
