The hydrojet deep embedment method of laying cable and pipe underwater has been gradually improved and is now capable of economically embedding cables and pipes of large diameters. The hydro-injector which is adapted to the work required and shaped accordingly is fitted with nozzles which direct the water jets down and in the direction of advance. Loosened soil is thrown up while the pipe is layed in the ditch which is refilled as the soil settles. This method has the advantage of: a) No removal of soil, b) simple control of depth of flushed in cable or pipe, c) protection of pipes from anchors, fishing gear, and currents, d) simultaneously laying several pipes.
