Non Destructive Digging (NDD) or Potholing is the safest, most accurate and cost effective process of excavating without disrupting any underground services, it involves the combination of high pressure water and high velocity vacuum to excavate the ground to the required depth.

Non Destructive Excavation (NDD) or Potholing is ideal for excavating in roadways and footpath, around critical infrastruture, tight spaces or to identify the exact location of underground services.

The benefits of potholing excavation include:

  • Clearly Identifying underground services.
  • No damage to underground services during excavation.
  • No damage to underground tree roots during excavation.
  • Excavate in restricted spaces.
  • No over excavation.
  • Excavate holes to exacte dimensions.
