    Hydro Excavation Services in Melbourne

    Hydrovac, also known as hydro excavation, is a popular soft dig non-destructive excavation method. Here, we use high-pressure water (cold or hot) to remove or move soil and at the same time vacuum it out. It facilitates non-destructive digging and an accurate method of excavating soil and ground materials. Australian Construction uses Hydrovac technology to eliminate the likelihood of destruction to underground structures like:

    • Electrical wire
    • Gas pipelines
    • Water/sewer pipes
    • Fibre optic cables

    Do not worry if the ground is full of snow, icy or frozen. Hydro excavation trucks have an enclosed boiler to enable us to run hot water and handle the frozen ground. Our skilled team can also access challenging areas. We include more hoses and pipe to reach those spaces that are situated far from the truck. Get in touch with our team today and get a free project consultation and quote to determine whether HydroVac is suitable for you.

    The Hydro Excavation Procedure

    Our Hydro Excavation process involves two parts that involve non-destructive digging (NDD).

    The first part involves the excavation technique. We spray high-pressure water on the exterior material, splitting it as it combines with the water. 

    In the second part, our team applies extreme-volume vacuum force, sucking up the water and exterior material that got split in the initial step of the procedure, into the truck’s collection tanks. These two steps ensure that the surface assets are placed and preserved efficiently.

    Benefits of HydroVac Excavation

    Hydro Excavation presents the safest method of excavating when working near sewage mains power, fibre optic lines and telecommunication. It lowers any damage that leads to a major outage and costly destruction to other services. Australian Construction uses Hydro Excavation for land excavation, enabling work to be done safely, exposing services, while preventing damage.

    We use Hydro Excavation for:

    • Utility repairs & servicing
    • Tree roots
    • Trenching
    • Piling
    • Pipe cleaning
    • Degreasing
    • Mining
    • Environmental recovery
    • Sewage cleaning
    • Confined digging
    • Utility mains –electricity, water, gas
    • Rubbish and debris removal


    Before we carry out excavation, our team needs to clear some areas. To complete the excavation procedure fast, we take meticulous effort in the pre-plan phase. Our team’s proficiency in working and handling the material ensures we deliver quality work.
