Hydro Excavation

Hydro excavation servicesProper excavating around utility lines is beneficial for the community, the client, and the contractor. Consequently, it is quickly becoming the preferred method by utility operators. Since the operator’s are working with dangerous utility lines. serious injury and death is a major concern.

However through hydro excavating processes the safety of the operator is vastly improved as he or she can work on the surface out of the excavated hole. For that reason, the risk of accidental trench cave-ins is virtually eliminated.

Safety First

While working on the job-site, safety is the top priority for the community, client, and the contractor.  Implementing safe practices protects the employees and the public from injury and death. There are many disadvantages to not following safe operational practices.

These include a loss of resources such as equipment damage. as well as time in reporting the accident. and avoidable cost.  Additionally, the contractor is burdened with increased insurance costs and irrevocable damage to the reputation of the company. As mentioned earlier.

3R, Inc.'s  hydro excavation processes can safely and confidently reveal buried utilities.  Therefore, the general public will not experience avoidable power outages because of accidental line damage.  Furthermore, gas lines are protected and emergency evacuations are virtually eliminated.

Access Remote Locations

Hydro excavation is unique in that remote locations do not present a problem when excavating. The service allows for proper excavating when conventional excavating equipment cannot access the construction site. This can be accomplished through the extendable rubber hose, which allows our technicians to work over five hundred feet away from the truck itself.

Furthermore, excavating inside a building or under a structure is no longer an issue. The vacuum hose and pressurized water gun can complete this task leaving a non- existing footprint with no spoils to remove.

Value Comparison: Hydro Excavation vs. Conventional Excavation

The prevailing opinion is that in most cases a yard-for-yard excavating comparison between a hydro excavator and a conventional bucket machine generally favors the conventional method on cost of dirt removal alone. However, it is important to note that the actual removing of the dirt is only a small part of the complete job.

We already know the cost benefits that favor the hydrovac method due to its reduced risk for possible damage to underground utilities, worker safety and liability issues, but many people are surprised to find that often the vacuum excavating method actually works out to be less cost than the conventional method.
