5th Star Vacuum Excavation Services in Ipswich

Vacuum Excavation
Vacuum Excavation also known as Vacuum Digging, Hydro Excavation or Non-Destructive Digging (NDD).

This method of digging is considered best practice practice for digging without damaging existing underground utilities and for the safe location of underground utilities. Traditional methods of excavation are: using a excavator/backhoe, chain/trencher digger, auger, or digging by hand.


Electronic service location
This is used to find the alignment of services and infrastructure underground without having to dig any holes


Pot holing
Once underground utilities or services are located with an electronic service locator we provide a safe and efficient way to safely expose and locate services, this allows for mechanical type excavation to proceed without damage to utilities. With vacuum excavation we can cut trenches in locations difficult to access allow for repairs or installation of existing or new services.


Pipe jet rodding
Pipe Jet Rodding (to remove blockages, tree roots) is the use of a specially designed rotary jetting tip that is sent up conduits or pipes to cut through tree roots and to clear other blockages without causing damage to the conduit.
