Daylighting Services

daylightingDaylighting services are important for anyone in New England who needs exploratory work done on underground installations, pipes, wiring, water systems or general maintenance.

What is daylighting?

Daylighting is the method of excavating a test hole to reveal below ground installations. It is done to examine those installations for fractures, leakages or any type of deterioration. Residential, commercial, and industrial property owners in New England should “daylight” their underground services every so often, to check everything is okay below the ground. This is very important to ensure the upkeep of underground plumbing, water lines, sewers, etc. Hydro excavation daylighting can help you save labor, time and expenses by completing these sorts of jobs. Problems detected early will avoid major repairs at a later stage.

Until recently, daylighting had been done manually by digging with shovels or by using a back digger. A back digger is a large machine which has an excavating bucket attached to it. Because the digging bucket is heavy and large, it creates a danger of harming the below ground installations causing extensive damage. It also moves much more soil than is required.

Hydro excavation daylighting is a procedure that uses highly accurate high pressure water plus an air vacuum. The water breaks up the soil is then transferred to a holding tank via the vacuum pumping system. Daylighting services using this system are a clean accurate way to pinpoint small areas of concern and investigate them. Daylighting is done quickly and efficiently and with no damage incurred on existing installations. Hydro excavating, daylighting, is the best way to investigate any underground pipe network to find, or identify impending problems, whilst avoiding the pitfalls of past methods such as broken lines or other structural damage.

Hydro excavation is the new way to solve old problems. We service all of New England including: Cape Cod, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
