Tunneling Using Hydro Excavation
There are various advantages of tunneling using hydro excavation. Let’s look at the most important advantages of hydro excavation compared to traditional methods of tunneling.
It is safer
Tunneling with the means of hydro excavation is a much safer process compared to traditional, destructive methods. In traditional methods of digging, there is the risk of accidentally damaging underground utilities like a water, sewer, or cable line. These utilities are extremely vital to people and can disrupt normal life if damaged.
Hydro excavation is nonmechanical and nondestructive and has no risk of causing expensive and hazardous pipeline damages. The crew can easily dig a tunnel and access the underground utilities safely, without any machinery accidents, and the people around are also protected from construction mishaps.
It reduces costs
Since hydro excavation is a nonmechanical process, it required fewer laborers than traditional methods of tunneling. It does the job more accurately and precisely, preventing damages to the surrounding pipes, utilities, and the environment. The process also reduces the total time required for the work, allowing the plumbing company to complete several jobs in a shorter time.
This smooth and efficient process of tunneling using hydro excavation reduces labor costs, restoration costs, and also brings in more profits since the company can accomplish more in a shorter amount of time.
It can dig any soil
Emergency repairs need to be done in any season and any soil condition. With traditional excavation methods, it is difficult to work in any soil. It could be clay, or stone, or frozen ground, and mechanical and manual methods are unable to dig through all of them. Even if it is possible, it requires a longer time and a huge workforce.
Hydro excavation makes any kind of digging easy and effortless. No matter what the season, digging through soil becomes less of a task when the process is hydro excavation.
It is versatile
Tunneling isn’t the only purpose of hydro excavation. This versatile nonmechanical excavation process is used for various other activities, like boring, microtunneling, trenching, debris removal, and potholing among others. Large-scale excavation projects are accomplished in a short time when hydro excavation process is used. Besides, hydro excavation equipment is easy to use alongside other digging and drilling machines and can be removed when not needed.
