Hydro-Vac Excavation

Need to locate and uncover utilities in the same vicinity in a no-digzone. Hydro-Vac excavation also known as *potholing utilizes a steady, forceful stream of water to blast debris and dirt away while using strong suction to remove the loosened remnants of dirt, roots and soil. Utilizing hydro-excavation around hazardous utilities accelerates the excavation process while allowing our plumbers to work safely and efficiently.

We also utilize the vacuum equipment combined with a high powered jetter to safely and efficiently clean pipes for both sanitary sewer systems and storm water systems.Utilizing our high power vacuum system with different cutting heads and nozzles we are capable of cleaning and maintaining long runs of pipes.


*Potholing is a term used during construction toexpose water & mainlines and utility lines whilekeeping them safe

Traditional Excavation

Our fleet of mini excavators and trenchers allow us to safely and efficiently excavate and replace collapsed underground sewer lines and leaking water lines.

Sewer Line Replacement

If your sewer line is collapsed and CIPP (cured in place pipe) relining is not an option we offer excavation and traditional dig and replace sewer line repairs. Common sewer materials such as cast iron, Orangeburg, and
terracotta have around 50-60 useful years. Once the pipe has reached the end of its useful life you’ll begin to experience constant backups due to root infiltration and severe trench-rot. If addressed during early
stages of failure, often times we can utilize no-dig CIPP methods however a collapsed pipe will typically require excavation. RooterNOW® has the experience and knowledge to diagnose and recommend the most efficient and economical repair to your sewer issue.
