We also do complete FSA packages. Hydro-excavation is an ideal excavation choice because it is a safe and non-destructive method of locating and uncovering underground utilities. It is also precise and time-efficient. Hydrovac excavation clears soil and rocks away cleanly, eliminating the need for manual digging and the cost of damaging utility lines. 

We provide a range of excavation services to meet your project’s requirements, including:

Hydrovac: Avoid the dangers of traditional digging – Hydrovac excavation removes the soil around underground infrastructure by loosening it and vacuum-sucking it away.

Horizontal Directional Drilling: Horizontal directional drilling creates a prescribed bore path for underground telecommunication conduits, power cable conduits, water lines, sewer lines and gas lines. This installation method is ideal for environmentally-sensitive areas.

High Pressure Washing, Steam Cleaning and Flushing: Our hydrovac systems can remove tough dirt and grime from buildings and sidewalks, and flush out storm and sewer lines, lift stations and catch basins.

Utility Installation and Repair: Once excavation is complete, we can install and repair your utility infrastructure.

Excavation: We also offer regular excavation services for demolition, construction and landscaping projects.

Hydrovac Services: Drilling & Non-Destructive Excavation in BC

Thor Hydro & Drill Inc’s hydrovac services allow you to avoid the dangers of traditional digging, such as damaging or cutting into pipes. Hydrovac excavation is a non-destructive excavation method involving two steps. Pressurized water loosens the soil around underground utilities such as cables, gas lines and other buried utilities. A vacuum system then removes the soil and exposes the underground infrastructure. It is effective on all soil types, including clay and frozen ground. A hydrovac allows contractors to put more pipe in the ground, install more poles, or complete more service repairs by safely clearing a path through utility conflicts.
