Non-Destructive Digging Sydney

Non-Destructive Digging

Non-destructive digging, also known as non-destructive excavation, hydro excavation, and potholing, makes use of a high-pressure water lance to safely excavate soil, dirt, and sand that is found around underground utilities. It can be used to perform work safely even for sensitive installations.

This kind of vacuum excavator can be used for removing small particles as well as heavy debris. Thanks to that it is widely used for new service installations, pipe and fitting replacements, exploratory excavations, and clearing contaminated debris from work-sites and public spaces.

We will be there to safely remove objects and materials which can seriously damage existing infrastructure such as subsurface telephone, electricity, or gas installations. Not only is this a safer way to work in the presence of underground utilities, but vacuum excavation is also much faster and cleaner method.


How Does The Cleaning Process look Like?

Before non-destructive digging is performed, we use a hand-held locator or ground-penetrating radar to locate underground utilities. We then use hydro excavation to dislodge the soil, dirt and sand, thus potholing and exposing the underground utilities that need to be accessed. 

The materials that are dislodged are vacuum loaded for containment and easy removal from the site. We can also undertake a full reinstatement of the ground if required. This process requires professional equipment and experience, and that is exactly what we offer. 

Before starting the process, we will use utility detection gear to map the area and minimize potential damage. This is a very popular method for both – residential and commercial projects, especially the ones with tight deadlines. You can be sure that we will provide swift service and finish non-destructive digging on time. We are ready to tackle any task, whenever you need us.
