Hydrovac Daylighting Saves Time & Money

July 15, 2019

In the past, people had to rely on traditional methods of unearthing buried lines. Quite often, these projects had to be carried out manually. Hydrovac daylighting is here to completely change this process. D&L Environmental offers a wide range of hydro excavating services, including daylighting and removal of contaminated soil. Thanks to our modern Hydrovac trucks, Hydrovac daylighting improves job efficiency, saves time and money, and improves project safety.

Hydrovac and Job Efficiency

The term “daylighting” is used to describe the process of unearthing utilities and pipelines.

hydro excavationThere are three ways to unearth cables or pipes:

  • Digging by hand
  • Using an air vacuum
  • Using Hydro excavation

Since cables and pipes are usually 4 feet deep, digging by hand can take workers up to several hours to complete the project. Using an air vacuum speeds up the process. With the aid of an air vacuum, crews can complete common unearthing projects in 50 minutes.

Hydro excavation services are the most efficient by far. Given that the conditions in the soil are just right, experts in Hydrovac daylighting are able to unearth cables and pipes in just a couple of minutes.

As you can see, Hydrovac excavation services are very efficient. Thanks to powerful Hydrovac equipment and experienced professionals at D&L Environmental, you will be able to save a lot of time and get your projects completed before the deadline.

Hydrovac Daylighting Cuts Down Expenses

hydro excavationBesides job efficiency, we also have to address the cost efficiency of unearthing projects. Digging cables and pipelines by hand required a lot of manpower and many hours put into the project. This significantly increases the price of such projects.

The use of an air vacuum resolves this issue but only to a limited extent. If you want to save a substantial amount of money while getting your unearthing projects done in a short time-frame, Hydrovac daylighting is the best option to go for.

Faster and streamlined utility excavation means that you can get more work done on your site. This automatically decreases overall costs for projects.


Overcome Natural Obstacles

Very often, to unearth pipelines and cables, crews have to work their way through natural obstacles. This increases both project expenses and extends the project timeline. The success of Hydrovac daylighting is rooted in its powerful techniques.

Modern Hydrovac trucks feature extra long water and vacuum hoses. This is why crews can complete tasks that are even 600 feet away from the truck. The long hoses also enable hydro excavation at depths of 40 feet.

Year-Round Use

Hydrovac daylighting works on all types of soil. Whether you have to go through super trough clays, rocky soils, or even frozen grounds, the Hydrovac system is an all-in-one solution for all your unearthing projects. There is no need to hire additional crews and spend extra money and time when just one crew can get the job done and in record time.

Hydrovac daylighting leverages the power of water and vacuum to increase the efficiency of unearthing projects despite their scope. If you want to find out more about hydro excavation services, feel free to contact us today to discuss your daylighting, disposal and septic cleaning needs.
