Hydro-Vac Services for Hamilton, Burlington & the Surrounding Areas

24 hours a day, 7 days a week and every day of the year, Wm. Groves Ltd.’s hydro-vac truck is available to sites throughout the Greater Hamilton Area. Our hydro-vacuum truck has a working range of 350’ and can clear sewer lines ranging in size from 8” to 72” in diameter, vacuuming both wet and dry products with up to 28 inches Hg (inches of mercury). The hydro-vacuum’s high pressure flusher nozzles can clean with a variable volume ranging from 30 to 90 gallons per minute, with variable pressures between 500 and 3,000 PSI.


Our methods are both safe and efficient in uncovering underground utilities, as well as cleaning manholes and catch basins. Hydro-vacuum trucks can be used in cleaning sanitary pump stations and storm interceptors. We are MOE-licensed to haul non-industrial sewage waste.
