Due to the non-invasive and low damage effect to the environment, there are many benefits to Non-Destructive Digging (NDD). The benefits of non-destructive digging include:
- Reduced Noise
- Greater Precision
- Increased Safety
- Cost Savings
Non-Destructive Digging is Quieter
The pressure applied during NDD is significantly quieter which is very important in residential and metropolitan areas. Hydro excavation only requires the noise of the pump which is relatively low when compared to using mechanical digging equipment.
Non-Destructive Digging is Precise
NDD reduces risk and protects the environment. It does not disturb or damage footpaths, roads, curbs, gutters or surface drains. Using NDD allows the implementation of a precisely controlled process from start to finish. This precision is guaranteed as the operator stands over the excavation and can make adjustments as necessary.
Non-Destructive Digging is Safe
NDD minimizes the risk of damage when excavating near underground services like sewerage pipes, gas, water and telecommunication lines. This method of digging is extremely precise, leading to less critical importance to know the exact depth, location, direction, types and routes of existing pipes, cables and other underground infrastructure. Mechanical drilling can be slow and has a high risk to surrounding areas.
Non-Destructive Digging is Cost Effective
NDD reduces operational costs and man-hours needed to undertake manual spot digging as there are less crew members required. NDD also ensures less mess than other conventional approaches to digging, which significantly reduces clean up time. The non-invasive method also eliminates the cost for potential repairs, as it is more precise and will not damage underground infrastructures in place.
