How Can Diamond Hydrovac Help?

Hydrovac trucks are exceptional at daylighting, which is exposing underground utility lines with a specialized high-pressure wand and robust vacuum attachment that goes straight into the storage tank. Our truck is perfect for the job because hydrovac trenching is precise, efficient, and less detrimental to the existing ecosystem that is already thriving.

Another bonus to choosing hydrovac for the job is that cold temperatures and frozen grounds won’t stop projects from continuing! Cold weather excavation is one of the incredible services we offer. Tree roots may stop extending far and wide during winter but since there’s water retention in the roots when the infiltrated roots freeze and expand, it can cause major plumbing problems! Don’t let winter stop you from tackling hard-to-reach places. Tree roots in plumbing lines are not a problem to ignore.
