Hydro-excavating or commonly known as “potholing”  provides a non-destructive technique for locating underground systems. High pressure water combined with powerful vacuum methods removes ground material to aid in locating underground pipeline or power systems.

This soft technique reduces the damage inherent with mechanical digging equipment.  This method is widely accepted as the most efficient way to remove solid material in attempts to dig holes or remove matter around intricate underground systems.
