C.J. Erickson uses hydro-excavation technology to repair demanding water main breaks quickly with a level of safety and precision simply not achievable by traditional methods.
When a commercial customer suspects a water main break, our crew will arrive at the site and determine if close proximity to utility poles, other buried utility lines and overall safety concerns will make it difficult and costly to excavate using standard equipment. When that is the case, we we use our hydro-excavator to uncover all buried utilities and expose the broken water main. Hydro-excavation enables us to keep the area exposed and control the water.
Instead of using a back-hoe or many man-hours to dig a trench in a very tight, demanding location, our hydro-excavator digs a narrow, precise trench by forcing 2000 to 3000 PSI water through a steel nozzle. Resulting water and slurry are vacuumed into our self-contained debris tank and removed from the site.
Our customers benefit from fault-free, safe underground repairs made in a timely, cost-efficient manner – made possible by our investment in clean, precise hydro-excavation technology.
