Potholing via excavation is a simple process. The expert excavation team at Hole Hogz will use water to dig and penetrate the ground. Next, a vacuum sucks up the soil into a tank allowing underground utilities to be inspected for damage, leaks, and cracks.
Three primary potholing methods are used in the construction industry:
The use of backhoes was once the prevalent potholing method. Nowadays however, it's considered hazardous and a danger to workers. Utilities may get destroyed during exposure, and a spotter must be present when potholing with a backhoe. Backhoes are generally used when the risk of damaging utilities is less, like in open fields.
Digging by hand is the oldest excavation method. It's labor intensive and requires a larger work crew. But for large construction operations hand digging often takes longer, has higher labor costs, and there is always the risk of worker injury or even death.
Today vacuum excavation is the best choice for potholing. It's precise, safe, efficient, and cost-effective. Nowadays water excavation is the preferred method to air excavation.
