What is Cable and Pipe Locating?
The task of underground cable and pipe locating revolves around searching for any utility lines that may be present underneath the Earth but still unknown to everyone else
These mains may include water pipes, gas lines, power & telecommunications cables, sewer pipes, storm drains and much more. Since metal pipes, buried cable lines and pipe lines are all made using various kinds of materials, it is necessary to be well-equipped with the right tools and instruments to carry out the process of locating cable lines underground.
The process of underground cable and pipe locating revolves around a transmitter which connects and conducts a signal current through the cable and pipe electrically. The whole procedure consists of sending signals into the ground and locating utilities upon the return of these signals back to the transmitter. The wetness of soil doesn’t necessarily play a major role in this process as compared to the GPR procedure. In fact, wet soil enhances the signals of electromagnetic locating equipment and makes the locating process easier.
Damaging a Power Line or Telecommunications cable can leave nearby residence without access to power, internet, cell phones, and landlines.
