1300 VACDIG are experts in Vacuum Excavation and Exposing subsurface utility assets. We use advanced equipment and our team has undergone extensive training and accreditation.

1300VACDIG supplies the preferred non-destructive digging method required to confirm utility locations under Australian Standards (AS5488-2013 QLA). Our operators can come out first to validate the location of the utility on site, saving you time and resources.

Not all hydro vacuum excavating companies are the same and not all operators understand the requirements of the utility asset owners when using high pressure water or air jetting around their assets. Vacuum Excavation units using the incorrect pressure and attachments on their jetting units can damage fragile pipes and conduits and even cut through cables that are laid directly in the earth.

1300VACDIG have NDD units available for different and varying applications including but not limited to potholing and exposing services, trenching, post and pier holes, cleaning pits / chambers and valve boxes, and high- pressure cleaning.
