SEISMIC LOCATION

This is a more complex location method. In untraceable water services (Plastic) a water hammer is induced into the water service and a listening device is used to determine the exact location of the service. Depth cannot be given other than a rough estimate. Potholing is then undertaken to determine depth. Commercial locations on fire lines and other larger pipes can be carried out.Read More »

CONVENTIONAL RADIO DETECTION

This system encompasses the detection of services where a radio signal is sent into the service that needs locating. It is used on copper water services, telephone lines, power and Gas. All of these underground services can be located and an accurate depth given to enhance the safety when excavation is to take place on or near the service.Read More »

GROUND PENETRATING RADAR

We have a GSSI 3000 system. This unit can effectively “see” pipes under the ground. There are limitations to the deployment of this system. We access the ground conditions and only deploy this technology if we believe it will work. It is brilliant in sandy soils and sand.Read More »

SONDS & RODS

This type of system is where a radio transmitter is attached to the flexible rod and inserted into a vacant conduit or one that may contain an optical fibre (untraceable) and the transmitter is traced to give line and depth. Other smaller traceable rods can be inserted into smaller pipes to trace line and depth.Read More »
