Electronic Locating

Electronic locating for drains is a process that uses specialized equipment to pinpoint the exact location of underground drain pipes. This can be helpful for a variety of reasons, such as:

  • Planning for trenching or excavation work to avoid damaging existing pipes.
  • Locating the source of a blockage in a drain line.
  • Tracing the path of a drain line to determine its size and condition.

The electronic locating method used for drains:

  • Radiofrequency (RF) locators: These devices use a transmitter that emits a signal that is picked up by a receiver. The transmitter can be attached to a drain cleaning snake or inserted directly into the drain line. The receiver is then used to track the path of the signal and locate the drain pipe.

The specific type of electronic locating equipment that is used will depend on the size and depth of the drain pipe, as well as the material that the pipe is made of.
