The team at Mr. Trenchless in Calgary uses vacuum truck services to solve a variety of problems. The tanks of our vacuum trucks filter air and fluids using suction, outgassing, pumping, and other techniques. It’s helpful for eliminating waste in your community and sewage system.

Vacuum truck services are ideal for sumps and sewers, environmental protection, and disposing of hazardous materials.

How do vacuum trucks work?

Vacuum trucks are versatile and ideal for various types of jobs. Let’s review how one works. Here’s the process the team at Mr. Trenchless use.
We begin by clearing the site of people and obstacles and searching for hazards that could interfere with our job. Then we secure the truck in its parked position (usually with wheel chocks). 

The technician will connect the vacuum hose to the tank and lay it out until it reaches the worksite. At the same time, we ensure the hose is in good condition and the connections lock properly.

Next, it’s time to turn on the truck’s engine (or pump engine, depending on the vacuum’s power source) and start operating the hydro excavator, which uses pressurized water to break down the soil or debris on the worksite until it forms a slurry.

The technician will increase the vacuum’s suction level by keeping its valve closed, lowering the suction end into the area to empty out, and then open the valve when it reaches the desired suction level. The valve will occasionally be closed throughout the process to rebuild the vacuum’s suction strength. We simultaneously water the area and vacuum the slurry to eliminate waste from the desired area.

After clearing the area, your technician will continue the job by inspecting the septic tank, repairing underground infrastructure, or digging a hole for construction or installation. We also clean up any spillages that may have occurred.
Lastly, your technician will secure the tank lid and pack away the hoses.

What vacuum truck services do Mr. Trenchless Sewer and Water offer?

Vacuum trucks have many functions. Our team knows how to use them to their full potential and will work with you to solve your problems one step at a time. Here are the services our team has available in Calgary and surrounding areas.

Hydrovac Water Services

Essentially, a hydrovac is a piece of equipment attached to a vacuum truck that utilizes high pressure water to cut through and liquify soil. At the same time, a vacuum removes the soil from the excavation site. Fresh water and soil are contained inside the truck’s mounted unit. Finally, the slurry from the tank is released once again to cover any exposed underground utilities.
It allows our team to uncover a deeper layer of oil and underground facilities. We often use this process when performing sewer line inspections, repairs and replacement. It’s also helpful during daylighting, which is uncovering small patches of underground areas to locate utilities. The last step is releasing the slurry from the holding tank back onto the ground to re-cover the facilities.

Open Trench Repair

Open trench repair is ideal for sewer lateral repair or replacement. The process involves excavating a trench to manually install each piece of pipe. We perform open trench repairs when the pipes are collapsed or broken and when there are heavy root blockages.

Hydraulic Shoring

Hydraulic shoring is a safety procedure that holds up or supports the trench to prevent cave-ins. The technique uses hydraulic pistons that pump outward until they press against the walls of the trench. Your technicians will often use prefabricated struts and aluminum or steel waler beams during this process. Because of their small size, the shoring easily works around utilities.
