Vacuum Excavation

1300 VACDIG are experts in vacuum excavation and exposing subsurface utility assets across the region. Here, at 1300 VACDIG, we use advanced equipment to assist us during work, with a team of professionals who routinely undergo extensive training and accreditation refreshers. We supply the preferred non-destructive digging methods required to confirm utility locations under the Australian Standards (AS5488-2013 QLA). To make it easier for you, your team, and the project itself, our operators have the ability to visit your site to validate locations of utilities on site, saving you time, and resources.

Keep in mind that not all hydro vacuum excavating companies are the same, and not all operators have an understanding of utility asset owners when it comes to using high pressure water or jetting around assets. Vac units using the incorrect pressure and/or attachments on jetting units can damage fragile pipes and conduits and can even cut through cables that are laid directly in the earth. That’s why it’s imperative you engage professionals that know exactly what vacuum excavation services to use.

Vacuum Excavation Services

If you’re involved in a project where excavation is required, and you’re not sure who to call and rely on, think of 1300 VACDIG.

Non Destructive Digging

Vacuum excavation (NDD) is widely used throughout the construction industry thanks to its non-destructive nature. At 1300Locate, we utilise optimal water pressures and rotating nozzles to ensure the integrity of fragile and direct laid utilities are kept intact. When it comes to potholing, we record all utility data, mark the utility based on its owner and type, then backfill, and compact the pothole leaving the work zone clear.

Our NDD units are available for different and varying applications including but not limited to potholing and exposing services, vacuum trenching, post and pier holes, and valve boxes, as well as high- pressure cleaning.

Hydro Jet Drain Cleaning

Are your drains and/or sewer pipes infected with silt or roots? Our team of utility experts can be sent out to site to diagnose the issue and put remedies in place that ensure it is rectified – this can be in the shape of conduit cleaning, chamber, and pit cleaning, as well as general high pressure cleaning. Just give us a call, explain the problem, and we’ll let you know what may need to occur in order to get your drains and pipes back into action.

Confined Space Contractor

Working within a confined space is a dangerous task and requires a professional with the correct accreditations to undertake the work carefully, safely, and efficiently. The enclosed nature of these environments creates unique challenges for our team, from silos and filtration tanks to manholes. If your project includes an area of confined space, we’re here to help.
