Smartscan Locators’ Industry-Leading Non-Destructive Digging (NDD) Capability For Utility Investigation

In the world of construction, safety and efficiency are paramount. And when it comes to excavation, Smartscan Locators has revolutionized the game with our industry-leading Non-Destructive Digging (NDD) capability.

So, what exactly is NDD (Non Destructive Digging), and how does it work?

Also known as Hydro Vacuum Excavation, NDD relies on highly pressurized water and air to gently penetrate soil, dirt, or sand. This loosens the soil, which is then carefully vacuumed up, along with other debris, using a high-powered suction hose into the hydro vac storage tank for safe disposal at a registered and trusted facility.

NDD is the go-to technique when it comes to checking for underground utilities before embarking on commercial or residential projects. This cutting-edge method ensures minimal risk to fragile utility services, including power and gas lines, telecommunication and internet cables, and sewerage pipes. The days of conventional mechanical drilling and the high costs associated with damaging utilities and causing project delays are now a thing of the past, thanks to Non-Destructive Digging.

Let’s dive into the benefits of Non-Destructive Digging, and oh boy, there are plenty! First and foremost, precision and accuracy take center stage. The handheld pressurized stick makes it a breeze for workers to direct the stream of water with utmost precision, effortlessly cutting through and softening the soil. Even in confined spaces and around obstacles like power poles and street signs, the small and flexible hoses allow operators to navigate difficult areas beneath the surface with ease.

But that’s not all – Non-Destructive Digging is also the quiet champion of excavation. Unlike its loud mechanical counterparts, NDD operates at a hushed volume, making it perfect for suburban neighborhoods and bustling cities where peace and quiet are cherished commodities.
