Vacuum Excavation and Service Location
Vacuum Excavation – a cost-effective method that uses high-pressure water jets to break up solid ground (whether it’s sand, clay, rocks or soil) while simultaneously vacuuming the debris away into a holding tank for clean and easy off-site disposal after the job is completed. Also called non-destructive-digging, vacuum excavation is able to safely excavate around sensitive and expensive cables and services. Vacuum excavation is also uniquely suited for highly targeted pot-holing to identify and confirm the depths, type and size of conduits. This results in minimal impact to on-site traffic flows and surrounding surface activities – perfect for roadwork or rail environments.
Jetting technology uses high pressure water technology to effectively clear pipes, drainage systems or culverts of blockages and debris – we collect and remove all debris off-site, leaving the job site clean and clear.
Underground Service Locate – We offer a range of service locate options for clients to choose from, and routinely help advise on the most appropriate option for the specific job.
Service options include:
1) Potholing for inspection purposes – as mentioned above, our operators are trained to use our vacuum excavation trucks to safely and cheaply inspect for or confirm the presence and type of underground services.
2) Ground Penetrating Radar for highly accurate mapping of underground services
3) Mobile CCTV Pipe Camera – To avoid the expensive process of digging out pipes to check for blockages or inspect their condition, we offer pipe inspections utilising a mobile CCTV camera that can be sent up pipes with ease to check for blockages, cracks, ageing, rust and also determine the structural integrity and strength of pipes and culverts.
