HOW ARE DAYLIGHTING SERVICES GROUNDBREAKING?

02/08/2023

There’s no better way to access underground utilities than with a hydrovac vacuum truck. Diamond Hydrovac has you covered to safely expose sensitive gas lines, sewage, and other utility lines. In today’s article, you’ll gain an understanding of why daylighting services are groundbreaking in the world of construction.

What is Daylighting Excavation?

Daylighting, also known as potholing, is when a hydrovac truck unearths underground utilities and pipes with its high-pressure wand. Once the soil, debris, and sludge have been loosened, the robust vacuum sucks up everything around the utility lines. All of the debris is then emptied into the 15-yard capacity vacuum tank. After the necessary utilities and pipes are exposed, technicians are able to safely check for leaks and damages.


Traditionally, backhoe excavators or manual digging have been the common choice to expose underground utilities. But since they are often more destructive and risky methods of digging near sensitive utilities, many construction teams have turned to hydrovac services for assistance.

According to CustomTruck.com, “75% of damages caused in the utility industry are from shovel strikes”.

To ensure the safety of construction workers and the surrounding environment, Common Ground Alliance has introduced the Damage Information Reporting Tool (DIRT) to gather comprehensive data on damages that have ensued from utility excavations in North America. Research such as DIRT voices some of the prime reasons why hydrovac services have been sought out by countless construction companies for potholing utilities.
