Sewershop has many parts, supplies, and accessories for your hydro excavator.

Outfitting Your Hydro Excavation Truck

If you are in an industry in which you need to do a lot of precision digging, you know how much equipment can be involved, transporting trenchers ... and a backhoe ... and dump trucks ... and various other equipment. Hydro Excavation offers an alternative, using pressurized water to break up the dirt and then sucking up the resulting slurry.

And when it comes to outfitting your hydro excavator, making sure you have the right tools for each job, turn to for our selection of hydro excavation equipment. We have everything from dig tubes to extenders, clamps to Y-adapters, suction hoses to water heating systems for digging in the depths of winter.

Uses for Hydro Excavation

Among the industries best known for using hydro excavation are oil and gas companies and utilities — basically any industry in need of laying and maintaining underground pipes and conduits.

They are increasingly being used by local governments as well, however. Municipalities' hydro excavators are put to use in a variety of ways by a long list of local departments.

Holes need to be dug for new light poles. Underground valve boxes must be located and water main breaks examined. Utility lines must be unearthed and repaired.

While these might be some of the most well-known uses, they are by no means the limits of a hydro excavator's capabilities.

Hydro Excavation Equipment

If you are in the market for a hydro excavating truck, RAMVAC offers a range of hydro excavators so you can find the perfect size to suit your needs. If you only need the equipment for a short time, RAMVAC units are available to rent through Rock Rental.

Once you have the truck, that is where we come in at 

Vacuum tubes

SewerShop offers a wide variety of vacuum and dig tubes with a range of cuffs and add-ons to suit your hydro excavation or air excavation needs.

The rubber cuffs serve a dual purpose they both enhance the function of the dig tube while also limiting possible damage that could be caused to underground utilities if they were hit by a standard metal vac tube.

The cuffs are replaceable and sold separately at Sewer Shop.

Suction hoses

We carry Kanaflex & Tigerflex, WatterEdge and "Monster" suction hoses. They come in diameters ranging from 4 inches to a foot, so you can tailor your choices to the particular job.

The hoses we sell are durable and abrasion-resistant to stand up to the rigors of hydro and air excavation.
