Plendrive Hydro Excavation

Hydro Excavating ensures that you minimise the risk of digging damage to sewer lines, electrical wiring, gas lines, internet & phone cables, and any other vital plumbing network that runs underground.

As you can imagine, rupturing/tearing/or sticking a hole into any of those critical gas, electrical, water, or telecommunications networks could set you back with days and dollars of inconvenience.

This is why, non-destructive digging or hydro excavation is a highly sought-after method when damage minimisation is required.

Hydro excavation can also be used to locate or find and expose any underground utilities that require safe access without damage.

Hydro excavation is the new safe and risk-free method of locating underground services and trenching for new services.

More damage and costs are caused when heavy machinery is used in digging and excavation in areas where there might be: Fibre-optic cables, underground power, gas, water, and Sewer.

We have 2 trucks equipped with hydro excavation (non-destructive digging) equipment. We can dig & locate services or dig trenches for new services. With our equipment, we can also dig in footings for concrete posting. 

Our trucks range from 10,000 litres to 14,000 litres and carry 1000 litres of water. Due to our trucks’ large capacity, we can get a full day of work in before having to empty.

We also assist with directional drilling and boring companies, by removing the drilling mud waste.

How Non-Destructive Digging Works

Non-destructive digging involves techniques such as hydro excavation and vacuum excavation, which utilise high-pressure water and vacuum technology to safely excavate soil and remove debris. 

By employing these methods, non-destructive digging minimises the risk of damaging underground services and ensures precise excavation with minimal disruption to the surrounding area.

Benefits Of Non-Destructive Digging

Preserving Underground Assets

One of the key benefits of non-destructive digging is its ability to protect vital underground utilities and assets, such as gas lines and power poles. 

By precisely excavating around these assets, non-destructive digging eliminates the risk of accidental damage, ensuring their integrity and uninterrupted service.

Safety and Risk Reduction

Non-destructive digging prioritises safety by eliminating the chance of accidentally cutting utility lines or causing service disruptions. 

By using high-pressure water and vacuum technology, non-destructive digging minimises the risk associated with traditional mechanical digging methods, providing a safer working environment for both operators and nearby personnel.
