What Is Sonar Drain Tracing?
Sonar Drain tracing is a form of radio detection, it uses electromagnetic fields at a particular frequency and works with a locator to pinpoint the exact location of the probe.
Whats the point of sonar if we have cameras?
Cameras are great and give you a rough idea of where the issue is, however, they are useless under water! not only that even with a self-levelling camera it’s difficult to account for bends underground and incline!
Sonar will pinpoint exactly where the issue is above ground.
When should i consider sonar drain tracing?
Sonar drain tracing can be applied to several applications and needs such as:
Finding the exact spot of a fault or obstruction so in turn minimising excavation needs
Tracing where your lines run
Finding hidden manholes
Help to identify if your responsible for the drains or if they belong to the water board
Is it cost effective?
Yes absolutely, by pinpointing a fault such as a collapse, excavation can be limited to a small area, unlike our competitors who will do “spot digs” in order to find the line which they will charge you for!
