Hydro Vac Excavation

HydroVacs are an efficient way to safely and neatly dig up any type of soil, even in frozen conditions! These high-tech machines use highly pressurized water with vacuum systems for optimal performance. They can also be used when there is limited access or difficult terrain like clay soils which makes them perfect no matter where you need your project done.

Hydro vac excavation is the process of removing or moving soil with pressurized water. Before hydro excavation became popular, the industrial excavation world had to use regular excavators, which was an inefficient and inaccurate way of digging. With hydro-vac-excavation, you will have a non-destructive hydraulic excavating machine that uses a vacuum system coupled with pressurized water to dig precisely and make visual identification of existing underground utilities so they can easily be avoided. Here are some applications that hydro-vac-excavation can be used for:

  • Underground/subsurface utilities for construction
  • Slot trenching
  • Line, sign, and pole installation and location
  • Potholing/daylighting: The practice of digging a test hole to expose underground utilities to determine their location
  • Cold weather digging
  • Remote Digging
  • Excavation that protects important tree roots

Hydro-vac-excavation has proven to be the most accurate and time-efficient process for our customers.  Whether you are in the construction, oil & gas, utilities, or municipal industries, Roto-Rooter CA has you covered for a more safe, accurate, efficient, and cheaper way of digging.
