Why Tunneling Experts Use Hydro Excavation

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Sometimes, a few pumps of a plunger are all you need to fix a plumbing issue, other times, the issue is with the main pipes underground. When this is the case, Art Rooter, Sewer & Drain Cleaning uses a process known as hydro excavation.

Hydro excavation is the newest form of excavation, and it’s the favorite method for tunneling experts. It’s convenient, speedy, safe, and cost-effective.

Here we discuss the benefits of hydro excavation and explain why tunneling experts love this method.

Less Invasive & Destructive

Hydro excavation is a gentle and unintrusive excavation technique. It has minimal risk of damaging, breaking, and tearing your pipe system.

The process doesn’t require lots of big and heavy equipment, so it keeps your lawn and landscaping safe. If your sewer line needs to be replaced, you don’t need to dig up your whole yard. Technicians can perform trenchless sewer repair once they’ve reached the pipes using hydro excavation.

Speedy & Convenient

Other excavation methods can be disruptive to a project timeline. They run the risk of damaging utility lines and pipe systems, which can completely halt a building or repair project and result in major delays.

Hydro excavation removes soil, debris, and rubble quickly and efficiently. Because it’s gentle and reliable, you can guarantee no delays or disruptions. And because of the vacuuming process during hydro excavation, clean-up is quick and pain-free!

Increased Safety

Other excavation methods involve sharp metal equipment or heavy backhoes, which both have a higher risk of injury. Hydro excavation just uses water to excavate. This cuts through grass and soil easily, while posing no risk to passersby or utility lines.

Because it uses water instead of harsh chemicals, this method is also more environmentally safe than other excavation methods.

Increased Precision

During hydro excavation, technicians use small handheld pressurized wands to direct the flow of water. Because the wand is small and flexible, it’s easy for operators to work in tight spaces, around difficult corners, and around various obstacles.

The increased precision of this technique protects your yard by eliminating the need for invasive digging.


You need very few technicians to complete a hydro excavation project, so you pay for minimal labor. The quick and easy nature of hydro excavation also makes it so that technicians use less time to reach the issue. They can quickly start the repair process. This means fewer billable hours!

And on top of those savings, you also won’t have to fork out the money to repair damage caused by large or imprecise equipment.
