Special Tools and Accessories

Experienced and able to excavate on all types of ground and soils, we arrive ready with a variety of excavation nozzles to better adapt to the different soil types and weather conditions experienced in Alberta. All our hydrovac trucks are equipped with boilers, heating the water system which in turn permits us to keep working, cutting through the stubborn frozen ground during winter months.


Safety & Certifications

Adhering to the customer’s onsite safety protocols and complying with our safety procedures and policies, we place a high emphasis on completing a job safely. When it comes to having the proper safety equipment available on site, our personnel are expertly trained to work in that environment.

Working in and around electrical utilities, without the proper care and attention to detail can be dangerous, even fatal. Equipotential bonding mats are put into service around any possible exposure to electrical power lines, to mitigate and minimize any associated risk.

Supreme Vac is a member of several safety organizations, including; ISNetworld and ComplyWorks, and are COR certified by Enform to be in compliance with those organizations requirements. Insurance for our employees is covered by WCB. As well, all our employees are Fortis trained and have industry tickets in:

  • Construction Safety Training System (CSTS)
  • Pipeline Construction Safety Training (PCST)
  • H2S Alive, Confined Space, WHMIS (2015)
  • Transportation of Dangerous goods
  • Ground Disturbance Level 2
  • Standard First Aid

Why Hydrovac?

Compared to hoes, front end loaders, excavators and other conventional mechanical excavation equipment, there are many advantages our hydrovac trucks and personnel can afford you. There are less risk and legal responsibilities associated with the possibility of “hitting” a utility, disrupting the flow of service to a utility or pipeline.

  • We save you money. When working on a site that requires a significant amount of earth to be hydro-excavated and disposed of, instead of calling two hydrovac trucks, we can utilize a vacuum truck to come and vacuum off the debris in the Hydrovac. In doing this, our vacuum trucks can go and dispose of the waste resulting in more dig time and less disposal time.
  • Adjustable water pressure; our hydrovac trucks are equipped with 20 gpm pumps rated to 3000 psi and we can adjust to 1500 psi or lower when excavating around sensitive gas lines, electrical lines, pipeline coatings, and other underground facilities.
  • Less congestion means less disruption to traffic and the public – conventional mechanical excavators take time to move, and are usually trucked in with semi’s and low boy trailers which can take up a lot of space.
  • Quick disposal times; Our trucks have remotely activated rear hatch doors, sloped floors, and wash bars built into the tank which allows the slurry waste to be emptied quickly when offloading waste at the disposal site.
  • Long boom reach; 26′ extendable rear mounted boom controlled by a wireless remote allows us to dig at depths of 18′ before we have to add additional lengths of dig tube.
  • We have additional flex hose we can supply for your project job if we can’t access the area required to dig with the boom. We have hydrovac excavated using over 200′ of remote hose.
  • Mandatory on our trucks are harnesses, ropes and rope grabs. We protect our employees around excavation holes where there is a potential for falling which could result in serious injury.
  • We supply an arrangement of dig nozzles that are innovative, efficient and effective which allows us to save water resulting in more time excavating and less time at the water fill station.
  • Our hydrovac trucks and personnel are outfitted and stocked with all necessary PPE, and safety gear. There will not be any downtime waiting for the proper gear before commencing a job.
  • Safety – our industry revolves around working in or near potentially dangerous environments. Our safety record goes to show that we are capable, experienced and knowledgeable to get the job done safely so we can all go home at the end of the day.

All the above equate to cost savings and operational efficiencies for you, and at Supreme Vac, we strive to provide you with all the advantages.

Hydrovac Questions:

Q: Do I have to call Alberta One Call for my job site if I need to dig a hole or uncover a utility?

A: Yes, before causing any ground disturbance, Alberta One Call must be called. This is the responsibility of the primary contractor/owner to have Alberta One Call contacted to perform a locate for all utilities prior to commencing any excavation at the dig site. The digging community has an obligation to protect the safety of workers, the public and environment. Some utilities can be buried just mere centimetres below the ground surface. To contact Alberta One Call and submit a locate – www.albertaonecall.com or 780.242.3447

Q: How much hydrovac debris can your tank hold?

A: Our tridem hydrovac trucks can hold upwards of 13 cubic metres of slurry debris. Our water tank compartment holds 2000 gallons of clean potable water. We are able to utilize full capacities on both of our water and debris tanks on lease sites only. Road bans and legal weight conditions necessitate how much we legal carry on municipal, rural and provincial roads. To minimize damage to roadways, these capacities are reduced accordingly, to comply with the legalities of transporting waste on regular roadways.

Q: How fast does it take to dig a piling hole using a Hydrovac?

A: This will depend on multiple factors, such as; soil type, ground conditions and various weather conditions. We can cut and dig through permafrost conditions utilizing hot water from the boiler system during the coldest of winter conditions. Our hydrovac trucks come equipped with a variety of nozzles to tackle any type of soil. This allows our operators to cut the earth more efficiently than our competitors, enabling us to adapt to the customer’s needs and control of costs. Combining our hydrovac operator’s experience with the best hydrovac technology in the industry, customers benefit by having their projects completed on time, and within budget.

Q: How much does waste disposal cost?

A: It could run only a few hundred dollars per truckload. However, in many cases it depends on the volume of waste, the state of the waste, cost of analyzing the waste and other possible risk factors. The Waste Generator (producer) of the waste is legally responsible for finding a Waste Receiver (waste facility) who will accept the waste in question. Some receivers will only accept waste when it is sampled, tested and analyzed, and only then will they determine whether they are prepared to accept it. Supreme Vac, a Waste Transporter, deals with multiple waste disposal sites around the City of Edmonton, and Province of Alberta, and will work with the closest and most cost effective disposal location relative to your work site. Waste disposal costs will vary depending on whether you have hazardous (contaminated) hydrovac waste material or non-hazardous (clean) hydrovac waste material. We can better facilitate your waste disposal needs on a project-by-project basis. Call us for your next project, and we will be better prepared and more informed to discuss the matter further with you.
