We have come to expect our water, gas, and electricity to function all the time. When these utilities go out, it poses a frustration for your customers and a problem for your business. The sooner you can find the problem, the sooner service can be restored. Quick service is imperative in today’s fast-paced world where consumers rely on their utilities for both comfort and commerce. Hydro excavation can be of great benefit if your company is in need of efficient repair services, both during repairs and in the long-run.

Benefits of using hydro excavation services during repairs

Daylighting, the process by which hydrovac excavators are used, uncover utility lines and other equipment. This process can provide many benefits when service has been interrupted. Using hydrovac excavators can help you uncover the utility lines that need repairs in minutes, rather than hours.

The hydro excavation rig can be set up and operated from as far as 600 feet away from the repair site. This functionality makes it easy for you to position your hoses and equipment, regardless of where the damage is located. Setting up and completing repairs will also be easier because you don’t have to worry about maneuvering equipment into hard-to-reach areas.

It is estimated that up to 20 percent of traditional excavations using heavy equipment lead to additional damage to the utility line. The damage adds time and expense to the repairs. Hydro excavation is minimally invasive, limiting the risk of damage. You are not using heavy machinery that can easily tear into concrete pipes, steel tubes, or other utility structures.

Long-term benefits of using hydro excavation services

The result of hydro excavation is that you save money, your customer’s frustrations are minimized, and your service crews can move on to the next service call. Most importantly, hydro excavation is done via the highest safety protocols and has proven effective for all major utilities in the United States. This service can also be used regardless of the prevailing weather conditions, so you don’t have to wait for the weather to improve before conducting repairs.

In the end, hydro excavation enhances your operations reputation for convenient, efficient service. Having a reputation for quickly resolving utility interruptions will result in more profit for your company. Not only does contracting daylighting services save you money, it can be an invaluable asset that can help you make money in the long-run.
