Drain-All combines the experience of its industrial operations team with the efficiency and safety of hydrovac excavation techniques to provide unparalleled service.

Our excavation method uses air, water and vacuum to safely and efficiently displace earth and expose pipes, lines, cables and other sensitive infrastructure. Our units are equipped with hot water capabilities, enabling us to cut through frozen ground and complete excavation projects year-round. This non-invasive excavation method reduces reinstatement costs and damage to property.

When the job is finished, Drain-All can leave the excavated materials onsite or remove them for disposal to one of our licenced receiving facilities.

Multiple applications

Hydrovac excavation is safer and less invasive than traditional backhoe excavation, especially when working around utilities in winter when the ground is frozen. We provide this service to industrial, utilities, municipal, institutional, commercial and residential customers for a variety of projects, including:

  • Daylighting utilities
  • Trenching
  • Leaking valves
  • Cathodic protection
  • Piling and pole holes
  • Maintenance pits
  • Root pruning
