A client-first focus

With more than 20 years of experience in the marketplace, Jet Stream has established and retained its strong professional reputation thanks to its commitment to clients and its focus on transparency and integrity.  

The company’s highly skilled team has experience working with construction and civil companies of all sizes, water and sewer authorities, plumbing companies and homeowners, proving it can handle any challenge thrown its way.  


Jet Stream’s non-destructive digging (NDD) and hydro excavation service uses a high velocity vacuum system that delivers efficiencies and eliminates potential breakup or damage of vital services, as well as reducing noise pollution and disturbances to the local environment.  

Jet Stream has an extensive range of NDD units on offer for its clients, ranging from 6,000-12,000 L debris tank capacity with a 4-inch and 6-inch (101 mm and 152 mm) vacuum capability to meet large or small requirements.  

These purpose-built vehicles can achieve digging pressures of 1,000-6,000 psi with variant flow rates to break up ground conditions from soft, sandy loam soils through to clay, shale and stabilised sand. 

The pressure applied during NDD is significantly quieter, which is highly beneficial anywhere but particularly in residential and metropolitan areas. Hydro excavation only requires the noise of the pump, which is relatively low when compared to using mechanical digging equipment. 

NDD also minimises the risk of damage when excavating near underground services like sewerage pipes, gas, water and telecommunication lines.  

This method of digging is extremely precise, leading to less critical importance to know the exact depth, location, direction, types and routes of existing pipes, cables and other underground infrastructure.  

More capabilities  

Jet Stream uses its purpose-built iPEK CCTV, and recently purchased IBAK CCTV with laser scanning capabilities technology to perform detailed inspections in large sewers with various flow conditions, assisting with the location of defects such as deformations, infiltration and intrusions.  

The company uses its truck-mounted high-pressure water jets, portable water jets, and cold and hot water units, providing Jet Stream with extensive capability to clear blockages caused by tree roots, greasy sludge, litter and other foreign objects.  

Regardless of the service it is providing, Jet Stream prioritises the health and safety of both its workers and the public, along with the satisfaction of its clients.  

It is this strong commitment that continually upholds the company’s reputation in the market and ensures first-time clients become repeat customers.
