Versatile and Safe Hydrovac Services in Edmonton

When you are installing a new sewer line or updating your old utilities, you can avoid a lot of damage to the landscape using hydrovac services in Edmonton from Canessco Services Inc. Where an excavation company would typically use equipment to dig, tearing up the landscaping, we use hydro excavation equipment to remove the soil with pressurized water rather than digging it up. This causes much less damage to areas around the excavation site, which leaves all the other existing utilities, plants, and landscaping intact. If you are interested in learning more about our hydrovac excavation process, give us a call today and discuss your options.

The Benefits of Getting Hydrovac in Edmonton

Hydro excavation combines high-pressure water and an air vacuum to cut through and break up the soil while at the same time removing it from the excavation area. The process of hydrovac in Edmonton offers a range of benefits that you can’t get from conventional excavation services, such as:

  • 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.


Hydrovac makes use of two main components which empower the excavation process. High-pressure jets of water loosen the material that being excavated. Secondly, a very strong vacuum pulls the material away where it is transferred to a large holding tank.

Hydrovac is a much more eco-friendly option for excavation and so it is a great option for anyone who wants to reduce their carbon footprint. When you go with our hydrovac trucks in Edmonton, you will be getting a safe and efficient service that can save you time. Hydrovac is the best option for excavation that you’ll find.

Applications of Hydro Excavation


There are many situations where you might use a hydrovac truck. These include:

  • Daylighting – This is the process of unearthing land covered in sand, gravel, concrete, or even ice in order to expose underlying utilities to daylight.
  • Hole digging - Hydrovac trucks can also help with digging piling holes and holes for posts of varying diameters and depths.
  • Trenching - Hydrovac trucks aid in digging pits and trenches of varying sizes for either exposing underlying utilities or installing new utility lines.
  • Debris removal and tank cleanup - Hydrovac is effective at removing material, wet or dry, from trenches, pits, or underground tanks.
  • Backfill restoration - Hydrovac trucks can finish an excavation project by filling the trench or pit with soil or restoring it to its normal form.
