Q: HOW DOES GPR WORK TO LOCATE UTILITIES UNDERGROUND?

A:Ground Penetrating Radar technology has the ability to respond to both metallic and non-metallic objects giving it a unique capability for pipe and cable locating. Unlike traditional utility locating systems that require cables and metal pipes to transport electrical current to be detected, GPR can detect plastic, concrete, and metal pipes, like gas lines or electrical conduits. Taking all these facts into account, GPR is an ideal technology to locate in ground utilities of all kinds.

Q: When Should I Use a Pivate Utility Locator?

A:You are probably OK digging a few inches in your home garden but anytime you dig or cut more than a foot you dramatically increase your chances of hitting a utility. Underground hazards are truly everywhere. Our skillfully trained analysts can locate underground utilities including: water lines, gas lines, electrical lines and conduit, communication lines, waste water pipes and cable lines. At Penhall, we believe in safety first and attempting to excavate without scanning for utilities can be a potentially disastrous gamble. Utility locating is absolutely vital prior to any large or small in-ground digging, cutting or coring event.

* 811 will not locate utilities on privately owned property
* Property owners are responsible for damaged utilities on private property.

Equipment Spotlight: RD 7000 SERIES PIPE AND UTILITY LOCATOR

The RD 7000+ Pipe and Utility Locator is the backbone of modern utility locating. With multiple frequencies, power modes, and both passive and active systems, the RD is almost always the proper way to start any utility locate. The RD system works by applying a current via the transmitter to the metal pipe, valve, or tracer wire and using the receiver to trace the electromagnetic field down the length of the pipe or wire.

The receiver can accurately locate both the position of the utility and the depth below surface. For non-metallic utilities with access ports, a metal fish tape or rod with the sonde accessory can be used to help trace the utility.
