Instead of destructive techniques using heavy machinery, hydrovacing employs a high-pressure water system and powerful vacuum. Working together, the pressurized water works to loosen the earth, while the vacuum does its job extracting debris into a tank mounted on a truck. Hydrovac services can be used on all types of ground and soil, including clay, gravel, and sand. Hydrovacing powerful water-jetting action can also cut through frozen ground.
