Hydrovacing is the process of using high pressure water to cut into the ground, which is then sucked up by a powerful vacuum. Hydrovac excavation is the safest method of digging because it offers the least risk to underground utilities and pipelines, and has a minimal impact on environmental conditions. All IRONMAN hydrovacs are equipped with state of the art boiler systems which allow for effective digging even in the coldest Canadian conditions.
Damage to underground utilities can cause explosions, flooding, electric shock, and millions of dollars in damage. Hydrovac excavation provides a fast and safe way for contractors to avoid dangerous and costly errors. Hydrovacs are the industry standard for daylighting utilities and pipelines and ensuring due diligence on any type of underground construction. IRONMAN Hydrovac units are equipped with the latest technology to ensure that we get your job done in the most efficient and safest way possible.
OHS laws state that buried facilities must be exposed by hand or by an acceptible non-destructive technique. Hydrovac excavation is considered by almost all utility owners to be an acceptable means, and can get the job done much more efficiently than any other method. Hydrovacs operate 300% faster than hand exposing and digging. This means your project can progress faster, with a greatly reduced risk of injury to those involved.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS THINK OF US
“We had Ironman out to replace our water service line on our home. The crew was courteous and did a great job, going out of their way to protect a large tree by the excavation area. More importantly though, we had an issue with the new line later that year and Ironman stood by their work, they came out and quickly corrected the problem. I recommend Ironman Directional Boring.”
“These guys are very skilled at what they do. The foreman are knowledgeable and the drillers and locators are very accurate. Would definately recommend.”
“We are often tasked with upgrading customers services. In most cases the customer would prefer a clean installation without ripping the yard apart via trenching or excavating. In these cases, the only way we can get our new cabling to the home is via directional drilling. Ironman is our company of choice to help us and our customers accomplish this. Thanks so much team we couldnt do it without you!”
