POT HOLING SYSTEM
Pot Holing is a fast, convenient and no mess method available to locate underground
utilities or excavate in the vicinity of high risk utilities.
It is a safe and environmentally friendly method of excavating around
very high risk utilities such as high pressure gas, direct buried fibre and large power
cables. Pot hole excavations use low pressure water to loosen the ground formation and
then the vacuum system is used to remove the loosened ground. This low pressure ensures
that there is no damage or risk of damage to the underground utilities being located.
This method can also be used for cleaning of hard surface areas such
as storm water drains, sewer mains, manholes, pits and existing conduit runs.
This system is becoming the method of choice, as it is a
non-destructive method in which the existing underground services are protected.
How it works
This method uses a low-pressure water jet to break up the soil and a
powerful vacuum to remove the soil. The specifically designed wand can dig in any soil
condition with minimal operator effort, whilst providing no threat to the existing
underground services. All operators are fully trained in the operation and use of the
equipment. They adhere to strict guidelines ensuring safety and EPA regulations are
- No mess.
- Environmentally friendly.
- Non-destructive to existing services
- Fast and efficient
