Trenching & Excavation | HydroMax Plumbing

Trenching & Excavation

Most sewer system’s components are located underground, so if a problem arises, the repair may involve trenching or excavation. Although video inspection will occur initially to identify the problem prior to digging, sometimes excavation is still needed. Excavating allows the plumber to fix plumbing issues when a pipe is needing repaired or replaced.

Trenching Alternative

Trenching is a type of excavation technique that offers an alternative to install underground pipes when boring is not right for the job. OSHA defines trenching as a narrow excavation made below the surface of the ground. 

Call a Professional

It is important to use professionals with the necessary excavation equipment and a solid understanding of how to mitigate risks from excavation. If you feel that you may have issues with your sewer system or any of its components, our Underground Team has the proper equipment and skillset to properly correct any sewer damage. 

Open-top excavation or trenching may be the best option for repair; however, both require the disruption to the above surface. Hydromax Plumbing also offers trenchless technology. Both methods have benefits, and our skilled technicians will partner with you to provide the best solutions for your needs.
